Cereal Review Database

Cocoa Peanut Butter Puffs (Millville)

This is one of the best off-brand imitations of cereals I’ve had, and it’s about time somebody started tackling off-brand cereals like this instead of just more endless Lucky Charms and Shredded Wheat knockoffs.

Cocoa Puffs with Stars (General Mills)

Available for a limited time only! Why? I don’t know. It’s tasty, but the star shaped pieces don’t really add a whole lot.

Colon Blow (It'sugar)

Well, there’s fiber, and then there’s high fiber. Try this.

Corn Flakes (Kellogg's)

Sometimes you just want a plain, simple cereal, and when that’s the case, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes will get the job done. I can’t award a perfect 10, though, because I’d be just as happy eating a box of off-brand corn flakes, and I’d have an extra dollar in my wallet, too.

Corn Pops (Kellogg's)

What more is there to say about Corn Pops? It’s a classic!

Cracklin’ Oat Bran (Kellogg's)

Looking back, this review seems underwhelming, but Cracklin’ Oat Bran tops a lot of people’s favorite cereals lists, and after eating it it’s easy to see why. Like Rice Krispies Treats Cereal and Boo Berry, it can sometimes be a bit hard to come by, but it’s still out there–so when you spot it in the wild, be sure to grab a box.

Crispix (Kellogg's)

Tasty, unique, crispy, looks cool… this is like the transitional cereal you eat when you become an adult.

Crunchy Fruit & Nut (Millville)

Something new from a store brand. It’s got fruit, it’s got nuts. It’s delicious!

Bowl of Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Caramel Nut cereal.

Crunchy Nut Caramel Nut (Kellogg's)

Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Caramel is a pretty good cereal, and definitely the best variety of the Crunchy Nut line I’ve eaten so far.

Front of the box for Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Roasted Nut and Honey.

Crunchy Nut Roasted Nut & Honey (Kellogg's)

For all the hoopla over its release a few months back (you’d think it was The Beatles coming to America to read some of the articles!), I don’t see what the big deal really is. It wasn’t really crunchy, nor was it that nutty, but it was different, and pretty good—just not great. I’d happily eat it again, though, and will definitely seek out the “Golden Nut and Honey” (flake) variety to compare.

Dora the Explorer cereal box

Dora the Explorer Cereal (General Mills)

Mild cinnamon flavor, but only compared to intense cinnamon cereals like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Actually seems like a good, reasonable amount. For such a small cereal, it sits pretty heavy once you’ve finished a bowl. Not complaining.

A bowl of Kellogg's Froot Loops.

Froot Loops (Kellogg's)

Froot Loops is such a standard that it’s barely even on my radar anymore—before now, I don’t remember the last time I even bought a box—yet I was having a hard time putting the bowl down as I was writing this review. It’s a delicious cereal that’s earned its status in breakfast history.

Froot Loops Bloopers (Kellogg's)

Bloopers? Was there a mistake at the factory, like “Oops! All Berries”?

Frosted Mini-Wheats Cinnamon Roll Little Bites (Kellogg's)

I’ve never had a bad shredded wheats experience, and Frosted Mini-Wheats Cinnamon Roll Little Bites are no exception. A tasty addition to its family.

Frosted Mini Wheats Touch of Fruit in the Middle box.

Frosted Mini-Wheats Touch of Fruit in the Middle Mixed Berry (Kellogg's)

This was an excellent cereal all around, and as long as it’s still on the market, I doubt I’ll be buying regular, strawberry, chocolate, or any other breed of Frosted Mini-Wheats for the foreseeable future.

Fruity Whirls (Family Gourmet)

Overall, not great. Though it may seem unfair to some that this review is mostly comparisons to Froot Loops (rather than letting Fruity Whirls stand on its own merits), the fact is, these store brands are touted as seamless replacements for the big brands, and while it’s not stamped “compare-to Kellogg’s Froot Loops” on the package, that’s probably only because you can’t; there’s no comparison, Froot Loops is delicious, and Fruity Whirls is not.

Golden Grahams (General Mills)

It’s tasty, has a nice texture, and you can use it to make s’mores-themed cereal bar things. No complaints here!

GOLEAN Crunch! Honey Almond Flax (Kashi)

This cereal is really, really good. It’s also fairly healthy for you, with 9g of protein, 8g of fiber, and 17g of whole grains per serving. I love eating this cereal with milk and also as a dry snack. Great product!

Honey Graham Oh’s! (Quaker)

Hands down, no greater cereal on earth.

Honey Nut O’s (Cascadian Farm)

Honey Nut O’s really aren’t all that satisfying. I didn’t even feel like finishing the entire bowl, but I ate it anyway. Mostly bland, kind of stale, and just not that good.
