REVIEW: Plentifull Peanut Butter Cereal

Plentifull Peanut Butter Cereal Cluster Box

Plentifull Peanut Butter Cereal looks like it’s for grown-ups.

No puffs. No rings. No marshmallows. No cartoon mascots. No toys. No puzzles on the back of the box. But its name does have a misspelling that’s the equivalent of replacing plural S’s with a Z or chopping off the E in the word “extreme” that you might find on products meant for younger palates.

This mature-looking cereal has flakes that seem as if they are plentiful with fiber and whole grains, which they are. It also comes with nut and seed clusters, which sound like stuff doctors recommend adults eat more of.

While Plentifull Peanut Butter Cereal appears to be a product for those whose ages are well into the double digits, it tastes like a product that would appeal to those who watch PAW Patrol or PJ Masks. It’s wonderfull.

From the moment I opened its bag to the last sip of milk at the bottom of my bowl, I got a nutty experience I was not expecting. It does peanut butter better than most cereals with cartoon mascots on them. Is it the reincarnation of Post’s discontinued Nutter Butter Cereal? It could be. I don’t know how transmigrations work, so I don’t know if a cereal from one company can be reborn into one from another company. I should ask Buddha, I guess.

Its potent peanut butter punch comes from the coated flakes, which not only provides flavor but also help prevent the rice and corn flakes from getting soggy quickly. I was surprised by the coating’s slight saltiness when I first tried the cereal, but after the second spoonful, I was more enthralled by its nutty knock. The layer on these flakes does a better job at presenting flavor than what Kellogg’s did with Frosted Flakes. But, oddly, the milk at the bottom of the bowl didn’t have much of a nuttiness.

As for the nut and seed clusters, which are made of oats, almonds, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds, they provide a Honey Bunches of Oats cluster-like crunch that’s slightly different from the flakes’ crunch. The seeds’ flavors are noticeable among the peanut butter, but if I happen to buy a box that didn’t have them due to a production error, I’d be happy with that flawed box because it’s the coated flakes that make this so great.

With a flavor and aroma that would appeal to kids, a decent amount of protein, and a whole lot of fiber and whole grains, Plentifull Peanut Butter Cereal is a product this adult recommends.

10 thoughts to “REVIEW: Plentifull Peanut Butter Cereal”

  1. Well it sure tries to sound healthy, but that is a LOT of added sugar for one tiny cup of cereal. A glazed donut has less!

    1. Well, this cereal certainly should keep people PlentiFULL with 270 calories in a mere cup. Aside from being faux healthy, it does sound tasty.

        1. 270 cal in one Cup?? I am sure they’re out there but it’s certainly not standard. As an easy comparison, Basic4 has 197 cal/cup.

          1. If you simply compare the ingredients lists of the two then perhaps you will be able to understand the difference in these two cereals.

  2. I just tried this cereal for the first time this morning and agree with your review wholeheartedly. The peanut butter flavor is wonderful. There is also an almond butter variety, which I now want to test out.

  3. You know, as an avid try-er of new cereals, I might have passed this one up if I glanced at it on the shelf because it almost looks like just another box of bran/”healthy” flakes /Honey Bunches of Oats cereal for adults (which i do love) but I don’t know that I would have looked closely at this one. However, based on your description, I am definitely going to hunt Plentifull down.

  4. Nice review, thank you. They’re definitely trying to bridge a gap here and market towards adults whilst still keeping a sweet childlike flavour appeal. Sneaky b%@&ards! That being said…I just put this on my grocery list…

  5. I bought a box of Plentiful in January and became ADDICTED. Now, I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Does GM even produce it anymore?
