Capn Crunch Crunch Treasures

Cap’n Crunch Crunch Treasures is a corn based Quaker cereal. It boasts half the sugar of regular Cap’n Crunch while still having comparable nutrition.

Too bad it tastes like a salt lick. Still tears up your mouth like the full sugar variety, but the flavor is so unappealing that I would never eat this again, even on a dare.

The $1.00 / 4 servings box is an attractive economic incentive, but the product itself is too disappointing.

Nutrition facts and ingredients:


It could have high fiber, high protein, and 100% of all the RDA of vitamins and minerals, and I still would not choose to eat this cereal unless I was starving.

Shame on you, Quaker! SHAME ON YOU! Cap’n Crunch doesn’t even list this product on their website, and with good reason

Taste: Tastes like a shaker of salt. YUCK.
Box opening: Easy
Bag rippage: None
Bag slippage: Not glued in
Sog factor: It didn’t sog out terribly, but it was inedible anyway
Allergy alert: Oats for the gluten-freebies

    This is sad. Very sad. Why would they tarnish the good name of Captain Crunch in this way?

    First of all, I want to let it be known that all the pains you went through for this are acknowledged, appreciated and valued.
    I think that this cereal only needs a quick rebranding, like you said… I’m thinking something along the lines of “Marquis De Sade’s Salt-in-The-Wound Bits”

  3. Salt being the 4th ingredient gives me the impression that it will be pretty salty, but then sugar is #2 so I don’t get how they configured that!?! It has Oat flour too, so off limit for me!

    As a Cap’n Crunch fan, I will not be trying this. I don’t want my taste buds to get confused when I eat the real Cap’n Crunch.
