Chocolate Toast Crunch!

Over the last few years a lot of cereal companies have dropped the ball. They put out the same old boring flavors of the same old boring cereals that they have been putting out for twenty years, and seem to be okay with that. But there's a chosen few who embrace innovation and try to blow our minds with new flavors as often as possible. At the forefront of this are the geniuses behind Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Over the past couple years they have put out gems like Frosted Toast Crunch & Peanut Butter Toast Crunch. So it was only a matter of time before they broke out the chocolate. Ladies & Gents, I give you...

That's one happy piece of cereal! 
Before we get to actually talking about the cereal, let's take a moment to think about how ridiculous this cereal is. Cinnamon Toast? That's a thing. Peanut Butter Toast? Yup. I eat it practically every other day. But Chocolate Toast? Who has that? Nobody. The closest thing I can think of is putting Nutella on toast, which is freakin' awesome, but this isn't called Nutella Toast Crunch (PLEASE MAKE THIS A THING, GENERAL MILLS!). But in the end, who the hell cares. All I want is a tasty cereal to eat a giant bowl of on those nights where I don't feel like cooking, and boy did this deliver!

Ol' Wendell doesn't skimp on that chocolate dust!
I'm going to lay it out pretty easily to you. If you like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and you like chocolate, you're going to go bonkers for this cereal. I'm not sure if the flakes are the same, and just covered with a ridiculous amount of this weird sugary chocolate dust. I tried to figure it out, but there were so covered that I couldn't tell. Also I just gave up, so I could eat more of it. It's that good.  It also has a much better chocolate taste than a lot of of other chocolate cereals. It might be the strange sugar/chocolate hybrid.. It might be the combination of that, and the beloved CTC flakes. Hell, it might be magic. All I know is that it's delicious. It's kind of like this:

This is called pure happiness. 

It also does an excellent job of giving you a nice bowl of chocolate milk to swig down after you're done spooning up every last morsel of cereal.  Normally I might take a swig or two, but with this, I took the entire bowl down!

By the end of the bowl that milk is straight up chocolate!
The bottom line is that it's damned good. Chocolate lovers, you're in for a treat. Most people my age wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole. I listen to them squawk about how they eat one cup of Special K and half of a grapefruit for breakfast. Meanwhile I have a bowl of Chocolate Toast Crunch, and a pile of crispy bacon starting out my day. So if you're a health nut, you are probably just reading this blog so you can live vicariously through it. I appreciate that! But if you're like me, and you aren't a stranger to taking down a box of cereal in three sittings, then this stuff might be for you.

I give this limited edition, chocolate version of Cinnamon Toast Crunch a solid A. Get a box while you can, because it could vanish at any moment...FOREVER.

  1. What about a half and half mixture of the Chocolate and Peanut Butter Toast Crunch?

    1. That's actually genius. Bravo, my friend. Imagine they put out a cereal like that? Maybe an update is in order...

  2. Thank you for this review. I've read a number of negative reviews on this cereal and though I was going crazy because this is by far the best cereal I've ever had, so its nice to see someone else agrees.

    1. hell yea! those other reviewers don't know what the hell they're talking about!

  3. I did pick up a box and had to hide it from the kids and forgot to get the Peanut Butter one.........but it was a great bowel of cereal!
