Normal Mills’ Cinnamon Toast Crunch model identify reaches far and large, permitting customers to expertise its beloved cinnamon-sugar taste by way of cookie dough, creamy unfold, and even bottled Cinnamilk. By way of its latest providing, the model now provides customers the possibility to eat 87 cinnamon rolls in a single sitting with out turning into dreadfully sick.
After all, every of these “cinnamon rolls” is a chunk of cereal. (Don’t mistake the earlier paragraph as an endorsement to eat 87 Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls, which additionally bear the Cinnamon Toast Crunch identify.) Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rolls Cereal consists of cinnamon roll-shaped sweetened wheat and corn cereal. Each bit is cinnamon-flavored and boasts a pleasant swirl design to emphasise the cinnamon roll comparability.
Additional supporting the comparability is the cereal’s intense cinnamon scent, which appears to leak by the product packaging. Bear in mind going to the mall and smelling the cinnamon roll kiosk all the way in which from contained in the division retailer? (Bear in mind shops? Bear in mind malls?) That’s how robust and attractive the scent of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rolls is.
Weirdly and sadly, the cinnamon scent is Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rolls’ siren track. The scent is way stronger than the flavour, which has a synthetic aftertaste. Minus the synthetic high quality, the style itself is ok. It simply lacks the punch that OG Cinnamon Toast Crunch has. I feel it is because the cereal items themselves are cinnamon-flavored, whereas their dusty coating is spare and extra sugar-heavy than the Cinnadust we all know, love, and typically purchase in bulk to sprinkle on our popcorn. A special coating–perhaps a vanilla powder to imitate a cinnamon roll’s icing–might have been extra profitable in elevating Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rolls.
Hope is just not misplaced. In milk, the synthetic high quality dissipates, and the cinnamon livens up a bit of bit, getting nearer to that candy center-of-the-roll superb. This enhanced taste arrives on the expense of the cereal’s texture, although. Dry, the items have the sunshine, ethereal texture of different corn-based or partially corn-based cereals. Moist, their texture softens to mush shortly.
For greatest outcomes, you must eat the cereal with milk — however quick. Like inside a minute. Perhaps this is the reason the cartoon cinnamon roll on the entrance of the field has such powerful-looking tooth. He’s attempting to point out you his approach.
In comparison with different cinnamon cereals available on the market, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rolls is simply common. The unique Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which I rely amongst my favourite cereals, bests the Rolls by way of taste. Kellogg’s Cinnabon and Cinnamon Mini Buns cereals each offered a extra satisfying texture, and I lengthy for his or her return. (In case you bear in mind the latter product, you in all probability additionally bear in mind malls and shops.)
Whereas Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rolls Cereal makes for a satisfactory breakfast, it isn’t fairly deserving of the Cinnamon Toast Crown.
