If you're like most people, you consider Cinnamon Toast Crunch to be near the top of the Breakfast cereal food chain. It's simply one of the best. Always has been, always will be. Except for that little window of time when they released a reduced sugar version. It was so gross that it prompted a myspace blog entry from me years before food blogging was ever even in my brain. Yes I said myspace. Over the years we've gotten some different versions & limited editions of CTC. But it always seemed like there was one they were forgetting.
ENTER: PEANUT BUTTER TOAST CRUNCH.
At Fatguyfoodblog, it's well documented that we are peanut butter crazy. If a snack or candy doesn't have a peanut butter version, THEY ARE FAILING AT WHAT THEY DO!
Well our pal Wendell the baker finally got off his ass and whipped up a new recipe for his beloved cereal. This time it's loaded with peanut buttery goodness.
But let's digress a moment and talk about something else. What ever happened to the other two bakers?
|Just three buddies who liked to bake cereal...|
A quick Internet search tells me their names could have been Bob & Quello (wtf?) but I also found another quote from General Mills saying they never had names. Interesting. Sounds like a cover-up to me. Seems like ol' Wendell wanted the spotlight, so he made the other two vanish. Not so hard to believe when you realize how crazy looking Wendell got at some points over the years...
|Clearly a murderer.|
|Drown em' in milk! They are faaaaaantastic.|
Dump your favorite kind of milk all over them, and eat them right away. They are a peanut butter breakfast explosion. When you're finished, you're left with a strange peanut butter flavored milk, which isn't too bad at all. Don't let them sit too long in the milk though, much like their brother, CTC, these will get weird and soggy. Eventually to the point where the milk strips all flavor from the flakes and they are kinda gross. But let's face it, who leaves their cereal sitting that long on purpose anyway?
I'd say in all, Peanut Butter Toast crunch is everything a peanut butter lover could ever want in a cereal. Go get yourself a few boxes today. Yeah I said a few. I've already gone through two in a week. They won't be around forever!
I give Peanut Butter Toast Crunch an A!
