Score: 6/10

I remember Apple Jacks being a much better cereal when I was a kid. After eating some recently, I can’t say that this cereal is all that great. It’s just some average, generic cereal. I’m trying to think of something unique about this cereal which would make a consumer purchase it, but I can’t think of anything. Despite it’s packaging, there’s just nothing special about this cereal. It just tastes… flat. At least it’s not obscenely sweet, like Golden Crisp.

A small tip for anyone eating this brand of cereal: let it sit in the milk for like thirty seconds. Otherwise, this stuff can destroy your gums and the roof of your mouth. For a donut shaped cereal, this stuff is sharp.

Cereal Review: Frosted Flakes

Score: 6.5/10

Ah Frosted Flakes. An old classic. It’s just corn flakes but covered in a ton of sugar. It’s super sweet, yet I can still enjoy it. I’m not sure why. Golden Crisps was a little sweeter, but I found that intolerable. Frosted Flakes seems more palatable for some reason.

In any case, this is a profoundly sugared cereal. It is clearly catastrophic for your teeth and blood sugar levels. It’s pretty much a dessert. Don’t get this if you care about your health. Only get this if you enjoy eating really sweet things.

Cereal Review: Honeycomb

Score: 5.8/10

The first thing you notice about Honeycomb cereal is the box. It is huge. You don’t actually get more cereal because the net weight of the box is the about the same compared to other cereal brands. It’s just that the shape of the cereal takes a lot of space. Which is also not great because it means you get less cereal per bowl because it fills the bowl easier.

Other than the space taking shape, there’s nothing extraordinary about this cereal. The taste is kind of plain and doesn’t really offer anything that differentiates it from competing brands of cereal.

Overall, an uninteresting cereal that you should avoid in lieu of better competing brands.

Cereal Review: Golden Crisp

Score: 5.6/10

Golden Crisp is a brand of cereal that’s been around a long time. Like decades. I remember as a kid, I used to love this stuff. So when I was shopping for some cereal and saw it in the supermarket, I decided to revisit my childhood a little. What a mistake that was.

Golden Crisp is one of the most intolerably sugary things I’ve eaten in recent memory. This is true even with milk. It is too sweet. Seven-year old me could’ve handled it, but adult me cannot. This is just not good for anyone, much less your teeth or blood sugar levels.

Overall, you need to avoid this stuff if you value your health.

Cereal Review: Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Score: 5.6/10

Unless you really like cinnamon, don’t get this cereal. The taste is almost like the cinnamon twists from Taco Bell, except with milk if you decide to add it.

What’s really egregious about this cereal is the shape of it. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is comprised of flat squares of cereal. These things get extremely soggy extremely fast, especially when compared to competing brands of cereal. It makes me wonder if this stuff was even intended to be eaten with milk.

Overall, avoid this stuff unless you love the taste of soggy Cinnamon.
