There have been a lot of gimmicky cereals this year, and I have a feeling most of them aren’t here for the long haul, and while it doesn’t do the “cereal-that-tastes-like-another-food” gimmick as well as some others, it’s still a decent cereal and it’s worth checking out while you can.
The Quaker Oats Company was founded in 1901 by the merger of four oat mills, spearheaded by Henry Parsons Crowell, who was aptly nicknamed “the cereal tycoon.” The company expanded into numerous non-oat areas, including other breakfast cereals, other food and drink products, and even into non-related fields such as toys. Did you know Quaker, at one point, aquired such companies as; Fisher-Price, Snapple, Stokely-Van Camp, Inc. (makers of Gatorade), and financed the making of the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?
Notable Quaker cereals include Quisp, Life, and Cap’n Crunch
If you celebrate Christmas and you like Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries, well, why not? Merry Christmas!
Do you like Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries? Do you not hate sports? Here’s something.
If Guy Fieri was reviewing this cereal, he would say the following: “This cereal takes you on a sugary ride straight into crunch town.” If you are craving a highly sugary snack, go for the box of Cap’n Crunch. If you want a satisfying cereal, go elsewhere.
This was a great cereal-eating experience, especially compared to eating some of the lesser (much lesser), off-brand imitators out there.
