Caramel Nut Crunch
New Product Review:

Caramel Nut Crunch

From Kellogg's
Reviewed by Mr Breakfast on 8/3/2006

Totally awesome.

Many new cereals have some kind of "cluster" - a little condensed clump of stuff meant to add pizzazz to every second or third bite of flakes or nuggets. As far as clusters go, this cereal has the very best - setting the bar for all other clusters and clumps.

Best New
Cereal 2006

Runner Up:
Fruity Cheerios

These clusters are comprised of caramel-flavored rice and walnut and pecan pieces. They're slightly softer than their corn-flake brothers, but they still provide a light crunch... and tons of flavor. I wish they sold the clusters separately. I'd like to try them on ice cream.

When I received this cereal, I had no milk in the house, so I treated the first third of the box as a dry snack. I had pretzels and cheese cubes in the house the same week. I found myself choosing this cereal as my snack du jour.

The flakes are tasty and crunchy as expected from the Kellogg's Crunch line. The cereal imparts a light caramel flavor to milk. There's also a reasonable amount of almond slivers. The picture on the box is fairly close to what you get.

The only complaint I can imagine this cereal getting is that it may have too much caramel flavor. By the end of a big bowl, it may seem a touch too sweet. But that is a total reach for criticism.

This cereal is super great. I officially name it Mr Breakfast's Official Cereal Choice for the Summer of 2006.

A 1 cup serving with no-fat milk has 250 calories, 3.5 grams of fat (1.5 grams saturated; 0 grams Trans fat), 1 gram of dietary fiber and 10% to 25% of many the vitamins that usually appear on the side panel.

Price reflects one 13.7 ounce box (8 servings).

The price we paid: $2.99

What do you think of Caramel Nut Crunch?

This is the world we live in. It happens to me all the time... every time I get to loving a product the dang company discontinues it. Please bring this back. Why would Lucky Charms and Fruity Pebbles be around for decades and this comes out 2 years and they take it away. Does not make sense but they stay with Raisin Nut and some nutty crunch cereals that didn't even come close to this one. It's a classic cereal! BRING IT BACK PLEASE!

I think you should start making and selling this product, caramel nut crunch cereal, again. It was and still is the best cereal I've ever had and I have been looking for it for years it was top rated in 2006 and all I can find are good reviews for it... so please consider making it again!

I bought one box of it and after I ate my first bowl I ran back to Wal Mart and bought 33 of the rest of the boxes they had. But after a few months and when I ran out, and went back, I couldn't find it anymore. I am just devastated. Kellogs - u suck!

Caramel Nut Crunch, where are you? I started eating cereal as a result of this cereal, and now it's gone. Why take it off the shelves if the reviews were good? Or make it available to the people who truly like it. I would be willing to purchase a case or more if I could.

Oh, Noooooo...... they've discontinued Caramel Nut Crunch?? That's the one that got me eating cereal again... it was SO good! I haven't seen it for a while at Ralph's Market where I do most of my shopping and I hoped that they were just out of it; I'd only checked one other store. Then, after looking for it again this evening to no avail, I decided to Google it and can hardly believe they've stopped making it. :( Well..... back to a mini bagel with peanut butter for breakfast. I'm VERY disappointed. There are a lot of so-so cereals that are still around..... go figure.

What the heck? I found Caramel Nut Crunch one time.... it was the best day of my life! I don't even like cereal! After finishing the box, I went back to Wal-Mart to get another box! To my surprise, the shelf was empty. I have been a mad woman on the hunt for CNC ever since. I was beginning to think I was crazy and never had the cereal in the first place. I am sincerely heartbroken to read the cereal is bring discontinued... Kellog's must be crazy!!

I am addicted to it, Walmart carried and suddenly no Caramel Nut Crunch, Foodfair carried, again, no CNC, I wonder if Kellogg's will let me buy it from them and if anyone finds it will you please contact me by email

I'm not gonna be very sweet if I don't get my cereal. I eat a box a week. Please someone get me my Caramel Nut Crunch, those little caramel bite are so good, I wish they sold them by the package and I could add more to my Caramel Nut Crunch, that is if I ever find it.

I love this cereal, but I'm starting to notice a difference in the amount of clusters in each box. I bought two boxes a week ago; one for myself and the other for my family (ha ha). To my surprise, there were barely any clusters in my box! I opened the "family" box to see if it was the same, but it wasn't. In fact, it was loaded with clusters! Was it karma for being so greedy? Who knows! The bottom line is that it's delicious and I can eat it as a cereal and/or a snack. Kudos, Kellogg's!

I agree with lolcake, although I wouldnt use such language.

I saw this box and was immediately intrigued. I coudln't wait to drop a spoonful of clusters in my mouth.

Unfortunately, when I did...

This cereal is a caramel exposition with some nuts and crunch on the side. Far be it from me to question this, but I didn't find loads of caramel and milk to be a pleasing taste at breakfast, let alone any other time.

There are several good cereals on the market. There are several great cereals. Then there are cereals that try too hard. This weird almagamation squeezes itself into that last category with ease.

I'm awarding two golden eggs for the colorful box, interesting concept, and great texture. Execution could have been better.

Yes, this has to be the most addictive cereal I've ever had. I remember when it first came out and I bought a couple of boxes since it was "buy one, get one free"...both boxes were gone by Wednesday...and I usually buy my groceries on Sunday.

Granted, it isn't exactly "granola good for you," but damned if it isn't the most highly addictive cereal ever. I actually had to stop buying it because of how much of it I kept eating. I eventually weaned myself back onto Honey Bunches of Oats and Weetabix.
