Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Meet Chocolate Churros!

This week's episode is a very special episode for Seriously Cereal. Not only is this the final cereal of February; not only are we reviewing another spin-off of Cinnamon Toast Crunch; and not only is my mom, Brianne, back on the show to review it with me; believe it or not, this is Seriously Cereal's 200th episode! :D

Needless to say, we had to make this episode a special one. So for the final "mimicry" themed cereal, we're reviewing an all-new variation on the delicious Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros Cereal: Chocolate Churros cereal! Sounds delicious ^_^

Some of you might recall that Brianne and I also reviewed the first Churros Cereal together, back in 2019, and it was a pretty big hit, earning a final score of 4.5-- nearly perfect! So it should come as no surprise that I was greatly looking forward to trying the chocolate variation. And really, Cinnamon Toast Crunch in general has a tendency to put out fantastic cereals, so the chances of getting something disappointing were very low ^_^

I will say, though, that I was a bit nervous that this cereal would be too sweet. Though cinnamon being paired with chocolate isn't that unheard of, Churros Cereal having quite a lot of cinnamon to begin with raised concerns that the combined flavors would be too much to handle! Fortunately, that didn't wind up being the case. Heck, the milk didn't even turn into chocolate milk by the end of the episode! ^_^

Which, admittedly is a little disappointing, because I really like cereals that change the milk, but eh, it's not a deal breaker in this case ;D

And speaking of milk! Did you notice that this cereal box doesn't feature any? Yes, in fully embracing the "churro" theme, instead of the typical bowl of milk, General Mills has placed pieces of the cereal in a traditional paper cone, like real churros are often served in. Brianne and I thought that was pretty interesting; intentional or not, when was the last time you saw a cereal that advertised to Snackers? It's a cool change of pace, I'd say :D

Well, that's about it for this week. But before I go, here's a little fun fact: We didn't bring this up in the episode, but this episode's cereal is actually a bit of a clue for what March's theme will be! I'm curious if any of you can guess what it is... or I guess you could just ask Spoony what it is. That works too :P

As always, you can post a comment on this blog, and receive a response from Spoony, Bowler or me within 24 hours. I'm always happy to chat :)

Have a great Seriously Saturday everyone, and I'll talk with you again soon ^_^
