I haven't had it in a while, and I believe the recipe did change a bit over the years, but it was pretty delicious. It used to have a more glossy look to it that more recent examples lack, possibly due to a reduction in sugar or fat or something. I ate it dry all the time, and that's probably the best way to experience it. Of course, I also routinely referred to it as "Cacklin' Goat Man," because I'm a complete weirdo, so what do I know?

This is my favorite cereal ever. Sometimes I have it for breakfast, or sometimes I crunch on it dry as a snack. High fiber, so it is not only taste, its good for you. My little grandson looks for it, whenever he stays with us. - Anthony

It's been my family's favorite sweet cereal for years. Even though it's pretty expensive, it has a great taste for snacking, breakfast, or whenever else. I don't know that I would necessarily say it tastes like cookies, but I can definitely see the comparison.

As a kid and as an adult... one of my all time favorite foods (not just cereals). I love that taste.

OMG... this stuff is amazing. Each piece is like a little crunchy oatmeal cookie. Better off as a dessert item than breakfast.

Amazing cereal! Tastes like cookies but the name sounds healthy so you totally have an excuse to eat it.

Love the stuff and I have ever since before they added the "Oat". I think my folks were wishing I didn't love such a small box for such a high price, but at east it wasn't sugar bombs. Anyway, still love the stuff.

This is Brian from New Jersey and I also got my fiance addicted to this. She takes a small bag of it to work every day and snacks on it dry. Everyone I introduce it to comments that it looks like cat food. This has been my favorite cereal ever, for the past 15 years. I think more people would love it, if Kellogg's got the word out and advertised more. Hope they never stop making it.

Good dry as it is with milk. Expensive, but I think it tastes like oatmeal cookies. Think this is a under-rated cereal.

Why do I love Cracklin' Oat Bran? Because it's super delicious! I once found the lost city of El Dorado, turns out it was Cracklin' Oats!

Nothing about it tasted like "oatmeal cookies" to me, but it wasn't the worst cereal out there, just wasn't the best either. (

It's the perfect topping for French vanilla ice cream.

Ahhh the memories! Best cereal ever... so glad they still make it. Usually a cereal this good disappears before you can fully appreciate it.

When I was young, my mother used to buy this cereal for me all the time, unfortunately too much, because I hated it. I could never get her to get the "junky" cereals that I really wanted. I gave it a chance when I first tried it, but I grew sick of the taste very quickly. If I were to compare this to anything, it would be sweetened cardboard covered in sawdust. It was just "Nahrsty"!

I had this cereal once and totally forgot about it until just a month or so. I bought a box and tasted it. I found it to be way to sweet and a lot sweeter then it used to be. If you're craving something sweet this is a good cereal to have though. Also to add I to used to call this cereal cat food.

The cat food thing is very funny (in reply to earlier comment by blueconversechucks).

Me and my little sister used to put this on the floor and eat it and pretend we were cats and it was cat food.

I was a kid, and remember this delectable cereal hitting my adolescent mouth. A surreal experience which can always translate into a crunchy deliciousness in my mouth whenever I reminisce about the gold old days. If you have not lived life yet and tried this life long treat, I recommend you take a seat at your kitchen table and LIVE!!!

No matter what cereal I try, I always come back to this one. It has everything you want in a cereal. It's sweet, crunchy, flavorful and satisfying... for a treat, I add frozen blueberries to it, to keep the milk nice and cold while eating it. yummy.

WOW who KNEW BRAN could be this good??? It tastes so great, I'm often tempted to dip a hand in and eat as-is whenever a box is around. It tastes almost like cookies! A flavorful, SUPER-crunchy, not-too-sweet cookie. Why not consider it a cookie? It contains about as much oil *lol* But who cares? A "healthful" cereal that tastes like cookies? Better not blow it and tell mom *lol* Don't let the plain grown-up label fool you. This is tasty stuff. I only wish it were made WITHOUT that dreadful corn syrup. In fact, there are alot of cereals out there which I love but can no longer have because it contains CS, or HFCS. This cereal being one of them.

Most excellent crunchiness, great with fruit of all kinds and good bran rating for us old guys. One problem: not sold in Canada so I have to travel to the USA to stock up.
