Peanut Butter Toast Crunch (General Mills)
There is an okay peanut butter flavor to it, and I can appreciate that it’s its own unique flavor, as opposed to just a Cap’n Peanut Butter Crunch knockoff or something. Has kind of a weird burnt or plasticky aftertaste to it that’s hard to describe.
The texture is pleasant and similar to regular Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but I actually found the pieces to be a bit rougher, in the cut-the-roof-of-your-mouth sense of the word, interestingly enough.
Crunch wise, the pieces get pretty limp and soggy quickly, but considering the fact that this is one of those cut-your-mouth cereals, that’s not an altogether unwelcome aspect. Interestingly, the flavor also seems to get milder during this process, especially the weird aftertaste I mentioned above.
Visually, not too bad, either, although the peanut butter isn’t swirled the way cinnamon is on its cereal cousin for whatever that’s worth. But I don’t remember swirls when I was a kid, and we did just fine!
This was the last box of anything-Toast Crunch I saw on the shelf that still had Wendell on the package, so bonus points for that! I just can’t get into those googly-eyed cereal pieces as mascots.
Despite its shortcomings, still a good cereal, and I like to see some new spins on an old classic like this–even though I don’t consider “peanut butter toast” a thing! I mean, people put peanut butter on toast, but do they call it “peanut butter toast”? But anyway, overall not bad. Would eat again!
