REVIEW: Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros Cereal

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros

What is Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros?

With unique but dubious flavor choices such as Sour Patch Kids being zapped with a cereal transmogrifier, toast for breakfast is passé.

Luckily, chef Wendell minored in business at Cereal U. and nixed the Avocado Toast Crunch suggestion for revitalizing Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Instead, he’s leaning into his core competency and retooling some of his cinnamon soot spewing factories to produce new Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros.

How is it?

Original Cinnamon Toast Crunch is on my Mount Sugarrushmore of breakfast cereals. So it is no small accolade to say Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros is a slightly different but still fantastic addition. While the smaller squares of Cinnamon Toast Crunch delightfully smother my type 2 sugar receptors, Churros’ sweetness is dialed back despite the sugar content being nearly identical.

A combination of larger cereal pieces, the omission of fructose, and a heavier cinnamon hand produce a slightly more balanced flavor. Dry, the altered shape packs as much if not even more crunch than Wendell’s piratical competitor.

More importantly, while Cinnamon Toast Crunch becomes soggy at the sound of a refrigerator door opening, Churros retains its crunch longer in milk. This larger window before soggification creates pillowy bites that call to mind the times I’ve dipped an apple cider donut into a glass of cider. Minus the apple of course. While I’ve never dunked a churro into milk, I expect the result would be similar.

Is there anything else you need to know?

I used unsweetened almond milk in my bowl. I do not expect your choice of milk mate will impact the flavor much.


If I had to choose between the two, I still slightly prefer Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but do not let that dissuade you from trying them for your yourself. Feeling the pressure to take his milquetoast toast shapes to the next level, Chef Wendell has cooked up something churrific.

  1. My warning, it is terrible. Will not buy again. Maybe my tastes have just changed though, idk. But I tried this a few times for my cheat days and it just feels more like I have to/am bored and have nothing better at home.

    1. I am surprised to hear that assuming you would still enjoy CTC. I found them to be only a slight variation personally.

  2. If these are less sweet than regular cinnamon toast crunch I want to try them. I know I’m weird, but I don’t like to put milk on my cereal, I prefer it dry and then I add a tablespoon of peanut butter for protein.

    1. If CTC is too sweet for your tastes, this may not be enough of a reduction, but I hope you like them. If you are weird by the way then so am I. I enjoy dry cereal and frequently add a small amount to homemade trail mix for a treat. I regularly have peanut butter with cereal be it wet or dry as well.

  3. I just bought these and the ratio of cinnamon to toast is way off because these pieces are so much bigger and thicker than regular CTC. They don’t taste anywhere near as good.
