Double Chocolate Cookie Crisp
New Product Review:

Double Chocolate Cookie Crisp

From General Mills
Reviewed by Mr Breakfast on 9/23/2006

The original Cookie Crisp cereal had a sort of magic. The whole idea of eating cookies for breakfast had a devilish lure. When you looked at the side of the cereal box and saw there were a few vitamins, the health conscience side of your brain gave a reluctant okay signal to the side of your brain that wants to snack and sleep with sexy people. The original cereal pieces followed suit. You could taste "cookie", but in the end you could always tell it was attached to a cereal piece that had a few nutrients squirted in.

The new Double Chocolate cereal has none of that nuance or duality. For better or worse, the pieces just taste like funny little cookies. They're very sweet. If the box read correctly, instead of "Double Chocolate Flavor", it would say "Double Chocolate Flavored Sweetness". That is to say, it tastes more like chocolate flavored sugar than chocolate itself.

The cereal pleased the little fat kid in me, but the slim attractive adult in me said, "Whoa... this is just a little too sweet". I was a tinge disappointed that the milk didn't take on much chocolate flavor.

This cereal ranks below many other chocolate cereals when it comes to chocolate flavor. Count Chocula, Cocoa Pebbles, Cocoa Puffs and Cocoa Krispies are all better choices.

The price we paid: $3.79

Your opinion on cereals has become discredited in my eyes because this is assuredly one of the top 5 cereals known to man.

I would say that I started eating it two years ago, but within a year it wasn't around anymore. I still look for it but never find it. It drives me nutso!

I managed to find a box of 12 double chocolate cookie crisps. It was like a treasure hunt. I thought that quit selling them! So I bought them all. Too bad I can't find more. But at least I found some here in Stockton.

I like the normal cookie crisp better. This has too much chocolaty taste.

I have once purchased this cereal at Wal-Mart during the holiday season of 2007. It was like love at first sight. It was absolutely awesome and I enjoyed every bite of it. But sometime about two weeks later, this cereal was no longer on the shelves and nowhere to be found in any other store. This edition of Cookie Crisp was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I wish that it would come back someday. I would avoid it during the summer months, however, since my cocoa-related allergies exist mostly during May through October.

Can't find it anywhere. What happened to the peanut butter flavor? was that discontinued? I wish they'd bring back the vanilla crisp. Just have the vanilla, the chocolate chip, and maybe keep the double chocolate. That would be great.

I LOVE this cereal and I think it is much better than regular Cookie Crisp. The only problem I have is finding it in our grocery stores. We have one store near us that sold it and that's how I found it. Now they don't sell it so I'm going to have to purchase it online. Oh, well. At least I can get my fix somehow. :-)

I wouldn't say that it isn't too bad. It does have alot of chocolatey sugar, though. Why do some people need the code on the bottom of the box?

I think the cereal is pretty good if I do say so myself.

And for those people allergic to peanuts, the box says in bold letters(mind you they aren't very big) "Contains Soy, Wheat, Milk, and Peanut Ingredients"

Not sure if they added that AFTER they saw people breaking out with allergic reactions, but still, the box DOES say that it contains peanut ingredients.

Other than that, VERY sweet, but very tasty.

I think eating a bowl of these rotten thing is just like having a marzbar for breakfast. I think it is descusting what they are selling for kids. No wonder most kids are obease, it is because chocolaet brekfast cirials, like chocolate cookie crisp. And who ever made this thing about chocolate cerial should be sued. I am very disaponted. And some children have it for lunch and gess what tea as well! or supper even. It should be band! Thank you for leting children become daiebetic!

They are alright. I just like the regular ones better but they are still pretty good. I just don't really like a lot of chocolate.
