New Product Review:

Mini Swirlz Cinnamon Bun Cereal

From Kellogg's
Reviewed by Mr Breakfast on 2/25/2005

Stick your nose in the box and it smells like a bakery in the morning.

Mini Swirlz Cinnamon Bun cereal was a big favorite around the office. There were several new cereals in our cupboard and this was the one that most people went back to the most. It's a tasty cinnamon cereal. The cute cinnamon roll shaped nuggets absorb milk in just the right way. You get a nice little crunch and because the nuggets have depth to their ridges, the milk partners with the cereal... slightly reminiscent of porous Cap'n Crunch nuggets.

This cereal is a keeper. So many of the cereals we review are variations on existing products. This one has originality. You can imagine future renditions of Mini Swirls: Frosted Mini Swirlz, Maple Pecan Mini Swirlz... A truly new cereal is rarity.

The only negative to report is that this cereal isn't very good eaten dry out of the box. It needs the milk to come alive. But that won't stop us from giving this cereal a perfect score.

For a 1 cup serving without milk: 0 saturated fat. 0 trans fat. 120 calories.

The price we paid: $2.99

Holy moly this cereal is the BOMB!! I feel sorry for anyone who can't find this locally. I was at walmart & decided to try new cereals instead of the usual classics like trix or lucky charms. So I bought this..and I finished it in 2 days. I love cinnomin rolls in the morning but when I'm too lazy I have this...yummmmm...heaven in a bowl. Even without milk its fact I'm gonna get myself a bowl..or 3. This cereal is a must I crave this when I'm at school and tend to overeat this stuff till I puke. My mom has to hide this from me becuz I pig out on it even though we have a candy jar & oreos..this is what I crave!

This is a great cereal with great potential. I expected the "swirlz" to be rough against the roof of my mouth, but the bits are perfectly comfortable. Kellogg's capitalized on a breakfast favorite, and, thank goodness, they executed perfectly. Excellent product.

It is a very beneficial cereal if you have a sweet tooth but it tastes great with milk.... milk brings the charm out and makes it shine with cinnamon.

This cereal smells really good, but I agree that it needs milk to come alive, so don't eat it out of the box or you might break a tooth. I also agree they look like little cow pies. Its stays very crunchy in milk and only has 120 calories per serving.

It looks like poop. I wonder what kellogs was thinking when they made it into "swirls".

"Guys, you know what would be funny? If we made a cereal that looks like cow#### and made people love it."

Awesome cereal. Though personally I need to space out my bites, or the wonderful cinnamon/icing flavor starts to wear off a little, but all in all this cereal is the pinnacle of "The perfect treat".

How aout a review of kellog's peanut butter mini swirlz cereal? I grabbed a box on impulse the other day, and I like it better than cap'n crunch peanut butter cereal, which I've always enjoyed immensely.
