Frosted Toast Crunch Cereal

Frosted toast sounds like something Paula Deen created with her greasy, butter coated hands, but I Googled “frosted toast paula deen” and it didn’t show me any results that link the two together. However, Google did show me text ads for Weight Watchers, diet pills, and butter churns.

Frosted Toast Crunch is a cereal General Mills describes as, “baked with the delightful taste of frosted vanilla, then dusted with a delicious dash of cinnamon for a taste that’s pure delight.” So frosted toast is toast with vanilla frosting on top with a little cinnamon? That sounds lower middle class fabulous.

All the previous Toast Crunch cereals have made sense, like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Peanut Butter Toast Crunch, and French Toast Crunch. But Frosted Toast sounds like something General Mills made up. I don’t know of any human being who has put cake frosting on toast. Putting two tubs of it on my body to make a French-cut frosting Speedo…yes. But, toast…that just sounds really weird.

With its white powdered coating, Frosted Toast Crunch cereal looks like it partied with Tony Montana. Sadly, the sugary layer easily gets washed away when eaten with milk and settles to the bottom of the bowl.

Of course, this process causes the cereal to lose a lot of its sweet vanilla flavor and whatever little cinnamon flavor it has, but it makes the milk that’s left in the bowl taste awesome. I’m talking upset Jamie Oliver awesome.

If you happen to buy a box of Frosted Toast Crunch cereal, I suggest you eat it dry. Because when you eat it dry, your tongue will make your brain think it’s eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch, albeit a light version. Vanilla is the dominate flavor, but the cinnamon is a bit more noticeable without the cow/soy/almond/goat milk cockblocking it from your tongue. You should also eat it dry because of the way the sugary coating will melt on your tongue when you drop a few pieces in your mouth.

Frosted Toast Crunch cereal is good, but it’s not that impressive. When eaten with milk it doesn’t have much flavor and when eaten dry it almost tastes like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Maybe General Mills should grab a stick of butter and Deen-ify it.

Pros: Eating the cereal dry. When eaten dry, it kind of tastes like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Sugary coating makes the after milk taste awesome. Google ads looking out for me.
Cons: Eating the cereal wet. Sugary coating gets easily washed away with milk. Sogginess happens quicker than I’d like. Cockblocking flavors. Putting sticks of butter in everything. Frosting Speedos.

    Lets all cut the crap and say what we know to be true:

    if you melt a tablespoon of butter and then toast these at 350 they are awsome. but cereal should not involve manual labor, so they’re just o.k.

  2. Malcolm says:

    I had never before heard of the existence of something called “Peanut Butter Toast Crunch.” I’ve got to confess, I’m somewhat aroused.

  3. Raymond says:

    This is a good, tasty cereal that i enjoyed. When i kept eating it with milk, the cinnamon was quite noticable, but only a dash. Obviously Cinnamon Toast Crunch is better then this but the best Toast Crunch cereal of all is French Toast Crunch, nuff said.

  4. You don't say? says:

    I’d probably eat this with the same enthusiasm as Tony Montana stuffing his face in a pile of pure-Colombian grade A, it looks awesome!

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s a sugary delight and this little frosted concoction sounds to be good to be true. Upon pinching myself, it’d seem like I’m not dreaming, and this creation is no mirage. However, the review has me a little skeptical. The picture eludes me to believe it’s heaven in a box, but the review insists otherwise.

    I may pick this up on my trip to Orlando, FL if I remember. Good review!

    You just have to try these dry with seedless grapes. Really. Wow. They do have some cinnamon, but just enough for the fruit. Cinnamon Toast Crunch would have too much for that combination. The lighter frosted toast crunch might work with other fruits also.

    And of course you can mix them with Cinnamon Toast Crunch for another dry treat by itself when you can’t exactly decide how much cinnamon you want …

    I’ve been eyeing this cereal for a month or two now. Finally bought a box tonight. I eat cereal as a “healthy” alternative to junk I used to eat by the pound like pretzel M&Ms and Reese’s Miniature cups. I like how it doesn’t leave your fingers as nasty as CTC (Cinnamon Toast Crunch) and it tastes pretty good. Got it for $2.50 and ate half the box in one sitting lol.

    Pop some chocolate chips in the bowl with the cereal (with milk) and you’re good to go.

    I’m eating it for the first time as I type…It’s amazing!!!!
