If you love chocolatey cereals, you should buy this huge bag of Malt-O-Meal’s Double Chocolate Brownie Crunch.
Now some of you might think, if it’s not good, you’ll be stuck with a gigantic bag of cereal. Well, two things. One, they say when life gives you bad cereal, you make cereal treats or milkshakes. Two, this cereal is surprisingly wonderful.
It’s surprising because Malt-O-Meal has this reputation as being an inexpensive generic brand, like Mountain Breeze is to Mountain Dew, and generic brands tend to be not good copycats of the big name brand. Well, two things. One, this cereal somewhat a copycat of last year’s Limited Edition Hot Cocoa Cocoa Puffs. Two, it’s 10 times better than that big brand limited edition cereal.
The crispy corn puffs are made with real cocoa. They don’t taste like brownies, but they have a bold chocolate flavor that makes me go cuckoo for Double Chocolate Brownie Crunch. Sorry, Sonny. The marshmallows are also a little chocolatey and there’s A LOT of them. They have a pleasant squish when in milk. And speaking of milk, what’s left at the bottom of the bowl after all the cereal disappears is a delightful, sweet liquid that must be slurped up.
I’m sad that I’m almost done with the bag of Malt-O-Meal’s Double Chocolate Brownie Crunch. Maybe because I’ve spent so much time with it. There’s so much cereal in this bag that it’s taken me weeks to finish it. Or maybe I’m sad because it’s one of the best chocolatey cereals I’ve had in a long time and I’m going to need to buy an inexpensive bag soon.
