Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros Review by Sav 🥣 🇺🇸
What better choice for Cinnapatra’s first breakfast in my new flat than this @generalmills
delight I got from @atasteofthestates
(SAV20 for 20% off).
Cinnamon Toast Crunch is my favourite cereal, even branching out to Apple Cinnamon French Toast Crunch and the dismal @nestlecereals
Curiously Cinnamon Bites, it’s evident that OG reigns supreme. A notion that Chris from @cerealkillerzkitchen
agrees with!Although I’m dying to try cinnamon frosted flakes! 🐯 )props to @cerealsnob
for informing me of my fellow cinnaphile and I can’t wait to visit when I’m in Vegas for Halloween!)
So although I was excited by the novelty of a new cinnamon cereal I was dubious of how it would stand up to the Cinnamon Cereal King. I’d heard mixed reviews in the cereal sphere and I tried to let them wash over me like fresh milk... 💦💦💦
Going in dry, the pieces were very light airy, not with a maizey corn puff flavour but that same featherweight texture. They reminded me of @nestle
Made of whole grain wheat and rice flours explains no corny background flavour but the mix of the two was a confusing, unpleasant almost plasticy taste. Not like the wholesome wheat goodness of @weetabixofficial
Weetos or the satisfying savouriness of @kelloggs
.uk Rice Krispies. But a weird combination of the two that left a salty chemical flavour. This was not aided by the cinnamon sugar dusting, which although abundant, cradled in the furrows of each churro’s structure, emphasised the chemically wheat-rice undercurrent.
I tried not to panic. I conducted my heated vs. unheated experiment. And although some of the cinnamon flavour disappeared when heated, the whole grain wheatyness was enhanced and made the cereal much more pleasant and natural tasting.
Slight salvation. But the milk was the part I was most nervous about... I’m Cinnamon Queen but also Queen of Crispy. The signature crunch of Cinnamon Toast “Crunch” is what I live for...it’s in the bloody title for heaven’s sake! And these porous, puffed up, spongey cylinders were already missing than crisp snap of a cinnamon chip.
