Strawberry Chex

This week you get two for the price of one!


…hosts, that is. That’s right, this week NYCWD is back for a quick CW with me, after months of recuperating from the 4-year-old Christmas Crunch cereal purchased off eBay. (Juuuuuust kidding, it was the Honey Smacks that did him in! 😉 )

Strawberry Chex is a brand new flavor distributed by General Mills. The cereal is rice- and corn-based, with half of the Chex being plain Rice Chex and Corn Chex (although we really only tasted the Rice Chex), and the other half being both types of Chex with powdery strawberry coating. The strawberry is really quite inconsistent depending on your bite — if you get a bite with a bunch of plain Chex you don’t even know you’re eating the Strawberry Chex. What’s the point of the light flavor? It’s a strawberry cereal, make it taste like it is! But the milk? Mmmmmm, very strawberry!!!

In one 3/4 cup serving Strawberry Chex has 130 calories, 2 grams of fat, 26 carbohydrates — only 8 of which are sugar, 2 grams of protein, and a bunch of your favorite vitamins and minerals: 25% of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12; 30% Zinc; and 50% Iron and Folic Acid. BHT is added to preserve freshness – yum!

Slogan: “Oven Toasted Rice & Corn Cereal with the deliciously light taste of strawberries”
Taste: It tastes like Rice Chex (NYCWD‘s favorite cereal!), but with pockets of strawberry-flavored Chex. A very bipolar cereal taste-wise. I think it’d be smarter if they made all the Chex taste like strawberry.
Box opening: Pretty easy
Bag rippage: No ripping!
Bag slippage: No slipping!
Allergy alert: Contains soy, peanut, and milk ingredients

A one bowl deduction for General Mills not making the right decision to coat all the pieces in strawberry goodness.
