This week’s episode is dedicated to Girl, Dislocated who special requested this cereal a few weeks back. We love our Girl so much that NYCWD and I co-hosted for her viewing pleasure! (You wanted to see us both, right? No? Oops! 😛 )
Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch is a Quaker Oats cereal introduced to the market in 1969. At the time it was the most popular of the flavors. As with the entire line of Cap’n Crunch cereals the mascot for Peanut Butter Crunch is Cap’n Crunch himself.
The cereal is a puffed corn, oat, and rice flour ball with a secondary ingredient of real peanut butter. That’s a little confusing, considering the fake peanut butter flavor we both experienced. Perhaps the coconut oil is overpowering the flavor of the peanut butter, which coconut oil is occasionally found to do.
Surprisingly, Peanut Butter Crunch does very well in the vitamins and minerals category, packing 25% of the recommended daily values of Iron, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, and Zinc, as well as 100% of daily Folic Acid per 3/4 cup serving.
Peanut Butter Crunch forgets to sog out, which is a very good thing, but it’s low on the peanut butter punch and the flavor it does have is more chemical than natural. To answer Girl, Dislocated‘s question, Peanut Butter Cookie Crisp is waaaaaaaay more peanut buttery than Peanut Butter Crunch. Ya can’t win ’em all, Cap’n.
