Trader Joe’s Oat n Wheat Bran Swirls

Today’s cereal is so good that I saved the leftover cereal from my bowl, wrapped it in Cling Wrap, and put it in the fridge for later.

Yup, I’m talking about Trader Joe’s Oat n Wheat Bran Swirls. Something with the word bran in it is my even newer favorite cereal! Why? Perhaps because it tastes amazingly like cinnamon with an undertone of coconut. Perhaps because it’s the consistency of a cookie. Perhaps because it is an all natural cereal that doesn’t taste like crap.

Actually, it’s most definitely all of the above.

These little cinnamon bun shaped patties are filled with fiber, fat, and protein, and each one is as big as my nose, and yet they taste delicate and light. NYCWD thinks they look like poop, and he’d be right if poop were piped through a cake piping bag, but it generally isn’t, so this looks like yummy cinnamon bun cereal to me. 😉

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


  1. I so wish we had a Trader Joe’s. Love that place.

    Ominous Poppy is ominous!… Okay, not really.

    Hm, that’s definitely just cookies. Then again, most cereals aren’t really better for the health than cookies, anyway. So this is more honest— sort of.

    I have to agree with Dawg, though. It does look kinda poopie, Poppy.

  3. Alas, no Trader Joe’s in my neck of the woods. Boo.

    Can Oat N Wheat Bran Swirls be ordered online from anyone?

  5. Unfortunately, Trader Joe’s does not sell their products online and according to other answers on the Internet you can’t get individual stores to deliver to you either. Your best bet is probably to ask a friend or family member who lives near a Trader Joe’s to mail you some of this cereal, or visit a destination that has a Trader Joe’s and bring some home.
