Post Cinna-Graham Honeycomb

    If the video embedded above is not viewable, you can see it at Viddler or Vimeo.

Yes, I do realize that I forgot to angle the camera at my HEAD. Won’t make that mistake again, but isn’t it fun to watch my stormtrooper PEW-PEW shirt instead?! 😉

Post Cinna-Graham Honeycomb is a new flavor of the original Honeycomb. During filming I said that Cinna-Graham Honeycomb tastes similar to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but I realized when trying to sum up the taste in writing that it actually tastes like a Honey Maid Cinnamon graham cracker, which is an AMAZING snack, if you’ve never had it. The cinnamon on the cracker is strong and powerful, just like in this cereal. If you like the taste of CINNAMON that tastes fresh from the stick, this is going to make your tongue happy.

The shape of the cereal itself is a honeycomb so the milk gets to go through and saturate all of its sides, but magically the cereal doesn’t sog out. Gotta blame the oat and corn combination for that.

And now, your favorite part, the nutrition facts:

Cinna-Graham Honeycomb nutrition facts

Anybody else notice something different from what I said in the video, which I specifically noted was interesting, but is different from the nutrition information on the Post site? SERVING SIZE! According to Post‘s website the serving size is 3/4 (three-quarters) cup for 32 grams, but as I mentioned in the video, which was NOT my mistake, the box says 32 grams is 1 1/2 (one and a half) cups! Proof is in the picture, my friends:

Cinna-Graham Honeycomb serving size discrepency

That’s from the side of the box I reviewed during the video. I have written to Post to let them know about the discrepancy. :) I did a little investigating:

Post Honeycomb serving size

…and have concluded that since Post Honeycomb‘s serving size is 1 1/2 (one and a half) cups for 32 grams that the Cinna-Graham‘s correct serving size is also 1 1/2 (one and a half) cups at 32 grams.

Nutrition isn’t stellar on this, but the box finally boasts on the one panel I didn’t check during filming that it has 16 grams of whole grains per serving. I know I read the carb count to you, but I didn’t put two and two specifically together until the box told me: FOUR!

Still a bowl deduction for lack of fiber and protein (I know, I know) as well as a bowl deduction for the cereal’s flavor completely falling into the bowl after only a few minutes.

Taste: Like a Honey Maid cinnamon graham cracker!
Box opening: Good
Bag rippage: None, although a bit hard to open
Bag slippage: None
Sog factor: Stayed crunchy, although all the cinnamon fell off the comb :(
Allergy alert: Manufactured on equipment that processes wheat

  1. Ugh, stop worrying about stuffing your face with those crappy, sugary, GMO-ridden cereals! Get off your fat ass, stop being lazy, clean your house for once, organize those piles of crap you have lying everywhere, and exercise a bit…keep eating and living like you are and by the time you’re 60 you’ll be in a world of pain. Progression not regression, lady.

    • This is not a forum for you to tell me how to live my life. Get your own blog if you want to tell people how to live their life. I will not be disrespected in my home. Do not ever come back unless you’re here to speak about the reviewed product.

    Okay, I don’t know what it is, but I have tried watching this one several times since Wednesday, but it keeps stopping at various points. Don’t think I can make it to the end. Sorry!

    • Creature, if you ever can’t watch the video that’s displayed in the post, if you look directly under we usually will post 2-3 other video sources, and also there’s a Cereal Wednesday podcast to subscribe to in iTunes. At the very bottom of each post you’ll see the wording:

      Podcast: Download

      And you can click that to download it to view it as well. But this video isn’t really worth that trouble. I am sad that the take was so shitty, but that’s life.

      • Creature SH says:

        Would you believe that I didn’t think of that? Downloading now.

        • Lemme know if it still doesn’t work, I can re-render it. Unfortunately, I can’t shove the top part of my face in there without serious effort so I won’t bother. :)

          • Creature SH says:

            Watching right now! I do miss the top part of your head, but I can deal with it.

          • Creature SH says:

            Finally, it has been watched! Of course, it was quite nice work, as usual. And yes, I am impressed by your investigation, seeing as this is something I would never have caught.
            For the cereal itself, I like the “simple” composition of ingredients, ‘though I wonder whether they just heavily focused on ingredients that need not be listed. The food industry can be terribly sneaky! Still, it’s one I would probably enjoy.

        • So glad you finally got to watch it! :) The Honey Maid cinnamon graham crackers are really just like it so if you can’t find this cereal you could try those, based on availability. I have never been to where you are, so I’m not sure how common either product is. :)

          • Creature SH says:

            Non-existent, really. (At least under any name I’d recognize) I’m mostly watching out of fandom and love for American life. *flag background*
            I do appreciate the recommendation, though – Thanks! :)

  3. I’m also sad that I did so much investigative reporting for this post and no one (not even Post) cares. They apparently don’t care about their discrepancies and that’s a damn shame.
