QUICK REVIEW: Cheerios Oat Crunch Cinnamon Cereal

Cheerios Oat Crunch Cinnamon Cereal

What is it?

A new variety of Cheerios that combines Multi Grain Cheerios, whole oats, and real cinnamon. If you’re not familiar with the multi grain cereal, it’s made with five types of whole grains — oats, corn, rice, millet, and sorghum. It’s not the first cinnamon-flavored version of the cereal. Cinnamon Burst Cheerios came out back in 2011, which was very good, and, of course, there’s Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, one of the brand’s elder statesmen.

How is it?

Cheerios Oat Crunch Cinnamon Cereal 2

It’s really good.

Although, I’m not surprised by that.

Cheerios has a good track record when it comes to cinnamon cereals, and I guess that comes down to the fact that the real stuff is used, not anything artificial. The level of flavor is just right, and it hides the fact that you’re eating some sorghum.

It’s not going to make you leave Cinnamon Toast Crunch for it, but it has enough of the sweet stuff that you might cheat on CTC once in a while. Shhhh! I won’t tell. I’ll keep in on the DL. The cinnamon doesn’t seem to wash off when in milk because the dairy at the bottom of my bowl was mostly devoid of the warm spice.

Cheerios Oat Crunch Cinnamon Cereal 3

The oats provide a nice crunch that’s more noticeable the longer the cereal pieces sit in milk. Don’t think of the oats as the limp things in oatmeal. Instead, they’re more like the oats in a Nature Valley granola bar that resist the urge to head on over to Soggyville. Hence, the cereal’s name.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Sorghum is also used to make alcoholic beverages. Um, that’s it.

Conclusion:

Cheerios Oat Crunch Cinnamon Cereal is an excellent addition to the line. Before trying it, I thought the oats wouldn’t do much, but they do provide a noticeable crunch boost. Its sweet spice flavor is great, but now I’d like to taste it on Chocolate Cheerios Cereal.
