Cinnamon Burst Cheerios

Cinnamon Burst Cheerios are a new flavor of corn and oat O’s by General Mills. Despite its claim of bursting with real cinnamon, there’s nothing bursting about it. The flavor is almost exactly like Apple Jacks before being added to milk. After the milk is poured it takes on a flavorless slime quality that is not pleasant in the least.

Nutrition facts improve my overall rating:

With 20% of your daily value of fiber in a single serving, I give Cinnamon Burst Cheerios a full extra bowl than I would for all other plusses put together. You lucked out with that one detail.

Better flavor luck next time, Cheerios.

Taste: Tastes like Apple Jacks before the sog. Tastes straight up nasty after.
Box opening: A little hard, and the box ripped!
Bag rippage: It was tough to get into, but it did not rip.
Bag slippage: Um, YUP.
Sog factor: It sogged out in a very gross way.
Allergy alert: Contains wheat and oats

    YOU SHOULDN’T THROW FOOD AROUND EXCEPT THAT YOU HAVE CATS AND ARE PERFECTLY CAPABLE OF PICKING THINGS UP LATER AND I THINK I WILL STOP YELLING NOW BECAUSE I HAVE NO REASON TO DO SO.
    Seriously, though – As always, quite nice review. Too bad that the cereal itself isn’t too terribly exciting. I’ve noticed that the loss of taste seems to be kind of a common problem with cinamon-flavored cereal. I guess it’s hard to make it stay in there.

  2. Hi Poppy, just to say I’ve been watching your reviews for a while. I love cereal and I absolutely love your reviews.
    I am writing from China. I’ve tried the UK Cheerios and Aussie ones. You know even the original Cheerio products vary from country to country. They have Chinese edition of Cheerios, which is one of the many verities…
    Anyway again I think the reviews are cute..the cats as well. Have a nice day.
