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:
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:
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:
…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.
