ICYMI: Peanut Butter Cereals (or: a Brief Introduction to the Ancient Art of Cereal Mixing)
In case you missed it, we posted some peanut butter cereal reviews this week:
I was inspired because, on a recent trip to the store, I noticed that roughly 95% of the shelf space in the cereal aisle was taken up by peanut butter-themed cereals. Don’t believe me? See for yourself!
That’s five different peanut butter cereals on those three shelves—and none of them are knock-offs or store brand alternatives or anything!
This also reminded me of an aside I made on a recent post regarding the “ancient art of mixing cereals,” which garnered a bit of interest from some of you. So with that in mind, and in the spirit of this impromptu Peanut Butter Cereal Week, here’s a quick bit of cereal mixology for you:
Yes, that’s Cap’n Peanut Butter Crunch, Peanut Butter Toast Crunch, and Jif Peanut Butter Cereal all in one bowl! And as exciting as that sounds, my review is just: “eh.”
I love peanut butter, and peanut butter cereals, but as I mentioned in the Jif Peanut Butter Cereal review, rather than combining to become the ultimate peanut butter cereal experience, the cereals in this mix just ended up clashing and working against one another. Oh well. Let that be a lesson for you fellow and would-be cereal alchemists out there!
Finally, one more peanut butter cereal item I spotted in a store recently:
Not buying them still haunts me to this day. Anyone else given them a shot? Actually, maybe you’d better not tell me. Those bars of compressed cereal pieces are never as good as it seems like they should be. But it’s hard to imagine Reese’s Puffs being wrong.
