Christmas Crunch was first released in 1988. Featuring Cap’n Crunch in a Santa hat, this edition has very limited availability to certain outlets and specific regions in the United States. Every year there are changes to the edition, most noticeably being the cover art of the box. Because of this type of exclusivity and limited availability, it is not uncommon to find these boxes being held onto as collector’s items
Quaker is the only cereal company that has been found to have put out a specifically special edition of one of their name brand cereals for the Christmas holiday. While this may be unique in and of itself, the exclusivity seems to be a Quaker tradition as they have exhibited similar behaviour with Quisp and with a version of Crunchberries called Ooops.
While we are almost certain that Christmas Crunch is as good as the regular cereal, we have to give the 2003 Christmas Crunch Cereal eaten in 2007 zero bowls. It just isn’t tasty anymore. In fact… its downright stale and nasty… and gave me a few hours of indigestion to boot.
