GREAT for just about any craving. Sweet, but not too sweet. Can EASILY be eaten just out of the box. It does have a cinnamon flavor, but is also innocuous enough that it can be enjoyed when not in a cinnamon mood. Great as a small sweet snack, out of a ziploc bag, if looking to indulge and not ruin a diet. A lot of other cereals only fit for a specific craving -- Fruity Pebbles, for example, when wanting sherbet-sweet taste; Corn Flakes for a clean and simple savory taste. Cinnamon Toast Crunch, however, covers just about every category. Hint: Try mixing with smaller-grained, stronger-flavored cereals in one bowl. Ex: I sprinkle some Fruity Pebbles over a Cinnamon Toast Crunch bowl when I want a bit of fruity kick but don't want a lot of sickly-sweet fruit-flavored milk left in the bowl. Cocoa flavored rice krispie-type cereals adds just a hint of cocoa and the additional crunch isn't detectable. And, if really looking for a cinnamon punch, sprinkle a bit of cinnamon powder directly into the milk bowl.

I don't really like this cereal because I tried it last week and it has a sandy taste on the flakes.

I used to eat this cereal every day as a kid. Now I feed it to my kids. They truly enjoy it too.

I usually eat healthier cereals like Kashi, but last night I was craving CTC. Got it. Ate it. Loved it. One of the all-time best.

This is my favorite cereal. I don't remember when they were shaped like little toasts. I wish they'd bring that back as a special edition so I could try that. Sounds fun.

A quick shout out to my favorite cereal of all-time. I've had it 3 days a week for 20 years and have no intention of stopping. If they ever stop making this, I will die.

I just found this out a month or so ago: Apparently, Cinnamon Toast Crunch is widely considered to be some sort of inside joke among users of Heroin and other opiates... Like some sort of unspoken junkie Truth that this is the best cereal ever made because it's not only delicious, but it's one of the only foods you can keep down when you're strung out. You learn something new every day!
