I couldn’t resist. I was in the cereal aisle of my local supermarket today (in my masks and gloves of course) and decided to pick up these two boxes. I’m more of a steel cut Irish oatmeal type of guy, but was inspired by Gabe over Cereal Time TV. In truth the last time I had this type of “kids” cereal was maybe give years ago – and only because I was experimenting with ice cream flavors derived from cereal-flavored milk (Cap’n Crunch was the big winner). Before that it was, uh, much longer, back when I was a kid watching Saturday morning cartoons like The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour, Scooby-Doo Where Are You?, and the hallucinogenic Ralph Bakshi Spider-Man.
This was my first time eating Chex. I think I avoided them as a kid because I recall them being a lot better for you back then. While this may still hold true in the general sense, I’m pleased to report this version did NOT taste healthy. And it retained a nice crispy texture in milk.
The smell of maple syrup this you the second you spent the package, but not in an unpleasant way. Suffice it today, it smelled sweet. And it delivered. Like the Chex, the mini Eggos also retained a nice crispy texture sitting in milk.
While Akemi preferred the texture of the Eggos, she preferred the favor of the Chex. I enjoyed them equally and look forward to working Cocoa Puffs into the rotation at at later date.
