Frosted Toast Crunch

Every single one of us knows the exact time when we realized Cinnamon Toast Crunch was the best cereal on the planet. Steadfast in flavor, hearty in sweetness, CTC (as I will so lovingly refer to it as from now on) delivered with every single bowl you poured. EVERY. SINGLE. BOWL. As a constant in the sugary cereal lineup, you could always look back and at the old friend and deliver a wink to those loveable bakers, even the often time bumbling Wendell, while you tried your taste buds on inferior breakfast flavors.

Imagine my astonishment when I saw CTC, venture into unknown territory and add this Frosted concoction to an already perfect recipe for mini cereal toasts. 

Wendell you GENIUS!

Upon opening this blue treasure chest, the sweet vanilla aroma filled the air. A blissful sugary perfume danced about my nostrils. I can only hope my 72 Virgins that await me after I blast myself to hell for Allah, would slather this scent on their bodies.

Ancient Astronaut theorists believe that FTC may have been offered to the Alien Gods

This cereal was fantastic. I do think that the folks at General Mills knew when they were concocting such a magnificent cereal, it would be too much for mere mortal man to handle, and with a heavy heart, they dialed back the flavors so that us, men of the planet earth, may be able to partake in a food fit for a god king.

Biting into a spoonfull of FTC was great, cereal had the appropriate amount of sog that you expect from CTC but the vanilla dusting that was meant to be showcased in this experiment, ended up drowning out most of the cinnamon, and tasted more like a weak marshmallow flavor. Which in all aspects is still fantastic, but FTC just doesn't deliver the same punch as the Alpha Cereal Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

somebody get me a scarf, it's frosty in here! no? ok...well. i tried.

Overall a solid offering in the cereal department, good for a simple man, who just wants to wake up from a hard night of sleep apnea choking, and enjoy a bowl of vanilla, marshmallowy faint flavorness.

you performed well my friend. thanks for the try Wendell!


  1. I've always loved CTC. It truly has been a staple in my pantry for many years. From growing up in my parents home, college dorms, and now living in my own apartment, CTC has been through every pantry i've had. I must say I am excited to try this new cereal.


  2. That cereal looks awesome!

    Picture does a great job @ showcasing its frosted, sugary goodness! Can't wait to get a hand on my very own box!

  3. Hopefully you guy enjoyed it as much as we did!

  4. I agree. Spot on review. Good but not even close to the original. The frosting overpowers the cinnamon too much for my taste.
