Cheerios Oat Crunch

The complete name of this cereal is Cinnamon Cheerios Oat Crunch. It consists of sweetened Multi Grain Cheerios pieces with a couple oats adhered to most of the pieces.

When you open the box, you don't get much of a smell to tease the flavor you're about to encounter. When eaten dry, you get a warm cinnamon flavor that's reminiscent of a of cinnamon streusel topping. That flavor dissipates the more you eat, leaving more of a Honey Nut Cheerios type of flavor. The pieces are enjoyably crunchy and offer promise that they'll hold up in milk.

Cinnamon Cheerios Oat Crunch Cereal Product Review

In milk, the cereal is really crunchy for about 2 minutes. After that, the Cheerios loops begin to soften while the oat pieces (especial when multiple oats are stuck together) still offer a nice crispness, if not necessarily a crunch.

As when eaten dry, the cinnamon is very noticeable at first, but becomes less of noticeable the more you eat. Midway through a bowl, you're left with sugar-coated Cheerios flavor that is still a very decent, if not just slightly too sweet.

The milk left at the end of a bowl is quite sweet. It's cinnamon colored, but only mildly cinnamon flavored.

Overall, Cheerios Oat Crunch has a satisfying flavor and a satisfying texture. I liked it a lot, but I suspect I'd like it just as much if not more if they dropped 25% of the sugar.

Delicious crunch, with cinnamon undertones. There is an aftertaste, but I find it pleasant. This is now my go-to cereal when in a hurry.

Very good cereal. I love it. Wish it had a little less sugar... I think it would still taste amazing.

I love cinnamon anything, but this cereal had a nasty aftertaste and I did NOT taste cinnamon at all. I couldn't even finish my bowl. My 12 year old daughter agreed that it was awful. Total waste of money.

I concur with Mr. Breakfast's review. I just tried Cheerios Oat Crunch and I enjoyed it; it tastes pleasant enough and seems fairly healthyish but certainly not aggressively so. It might be an interesting base for a quick homemade trail mix and might be interesting if used to make cookies if they come up with a recipe. I honestly like plain (original) Cheerios a little better, but that's just me.

I bought a box of this just out of curiosity and I love it. It's like a granola bar mixed with Cheerios in one, I love it!
