Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme Breakfast Cereal

If you're a man of carriage, the notion of Hershey's for breakfast is no stranger to your brain. Instead of feeling guilty and sad while you have chocolate smeared all of your fingers and face right after you awoke around 11am, now you can click your heels with glee, and stand proud that it wasn't only you who wanted it. So many people did in fact, they created cereal to celebrate it. May I bring to you Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme Cereal:

i'm never sure why they replace the word and with 'n'
Nothing says summer like Hershey's, so I took to the great outdoors (our porch) to do this cereal review.

1% all the way!

Alone the cereal bits are good. Your standard cocoa cereal but mixed with this odd, not so creamy white corn puff, with a HINT of what tastes like creme from the middle of an Oreo! We all know that's ridiculous, but maybe it's Hershey's subtle jab at Oreo, still bitter from the 1992 GM & Nabisco fallout. What you don't know about that? Read a book eh?

With milk poured atop these, the merger of both of these flavored sweet whole grain corn puffs comes together in a symphony of flavor. The chocolate, still a standby chocolate flavor similar to Cocoa Puffs is emboldened by this sweet creamy after taste, and tastes like cookies and cream ice cream with a crunch.

This cereal is absolutely stellar. Each bite was delicious, and even as the bowl waned on, the flavors didn't lose their punch, and the cereal didn't lose its crunch. Typically with a cereal like that, it cuts your mouth to shreds, thus would have effectively made this Hershey's Cookie's 'n' Creme 'n' Blood. But that was not the case, slight amount of mouth soreness but easily dismissed. The ONE problem with this cereal, if I had to come up with anything, would be the milk after drink, a staple to most cereals, is basically non existent. Who knows how they could fix this, but I'm sure a cereal scientist is sitting here reading this blog, and just slammed his fist on the table and yelled to his colleagues "I KNEW IT WAS GONNA BE A PROBLEM!"

I give this decadent breakfast offering a B. It's great, but didn't blow my hair off my head or shoe's off my feet. It's a solid cereal and I'd definitely recommend picking up a box and sending your kid to school buzzed out of his mind on a bowl of this cookie 'n' creme gold.

  1. Damn you've made me crave these things despite not being available in my country and having a box of Reeces Pieces cereal still to get through. Are these similar in taste to Krave Brownies cereal if you've tried those?

  2. We bought a box of this cereal a couple of weeks ago. Still haven't tried it yet.

  3. @Chris you're making a mistake man!

    @saxon, nope! If i remember correctly the chocolate in the krave cereals tasted somewhat odd ruining the entire cereal for me. sad because i thought it was going to rule.

  4. I just tried this cereal. It was awesome! I'm no longer missing out!!!!

  5. Yum! Hershey's cookies & creme is one of my favourite chocolate bars, I gotta try to get my hands on it somewhere in the UK...
