Capn Crunch Crunch Treasures

    If the video embedded above is not viewable, you can see it at these other fine video sharing sites: Vimeo, Viddler and Metacafe.

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

I am a true Cereal Avenger, providing my honest opinion of each cereal product you see pass my lips.


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

  2. Creature SH says:

    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!

  4. I cringed when you said it tasted like salt.. yuk!!

  5. 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.
