Kiwigen Cereal (IncaSur)
Good. A strong chocolate flavor. The base cereal is kind of like Cocoa Puffs, but some of the cereal pieces are coated in a chocolate candy coating, which is something I’ve never come across before. This is also one of the few chocolate cereals that does not turn the milk chocolaty, which is interesting since Kiwigen is a brand of milk-flavoring powder. Not a complaint, just an observation.
It’s sweet, but not sweet-sweet, which I think is pretty darn good for a chocolate cereal. It’s probably mild enough to turn some people off, but I found it interesting. A good balance.
The texture is Kiwigen Cereal’s most unusual quality. The chocolate coating gives the cereal a unique “snap.” It’s hard to describe, but it’s not like any other cereal I’ve had before. I like it!
The regular cereal pieces are light brown, and the chocolate-covered pieces are dark brown, so there’s something to break up the typical chocolate-cereal monotony.
The packaging is sparse and repetitive. The most prominent figure seems to be an anime-inspired Peruvian boy in an astronaut suit, and he always seems to be striking the same action pose. My Spanish is a bit rusty, but from what I can understand, the darker pieces are a newly-added feature, and have a stronger chocolate flavor. Also, this cereal contains Kiwicha, Quinua, proteins, vitamins, and minerals—and is my source of power! There’s lots to read, but most of it seems to be about its purported health benefits.
This is a good cereal. It’s not a great cereal, but it’s good, and it’s so different from any other cereal I’ve had before that I finished the bowl feeling satisfied and wanting to try it some more. I would buy it again!
