Cinnabon Cinnamon Crunch Cereal Review

Cinnabon Cinnamon Crunch CerealI associate Cinnabon with the sinfully delicious and totally fat and calorie laden deserts that can be found in numerous malls. Therefore when I saw Cinnabon Cinnamon Crunch Cereal at my local grocery store, I was excited and turned off all at the same time! After glancing at the nutritional panel, I just knew that I had to share my find with Iateapie.net readers.

The nutritional information is almost unbelievable for a Cinnabon product. There are only 11 ingredients, with Whole Oat Flour, Whole Brown Rice Flour and Turbinado Brown Sugar as the first three. Makara Cinnamon, a delicacy made only by Cinnabon, also makes a bold statement! Each 1 cup serving provides 150 calories, 1.5 grams of fat (3% of the daily value), no saturated fat or sodium, 3 grams of protein and 31 grams of carbohydrates which includes 3 grams of fiber (11% of the DV) and 10 grams of sugar. Cinnabon Cinnamon Crunch Cereal also contains 20 grams of whole grain per serving.

After looking at the nutrition facts, I decided to eat this as a snack/ dessert instead of cereal with milk, so I poured some dry cereal into a bowl and was surprised to see that the cereal closely resembled the picture on the box! Each piece of Cinnabon Cinnamon Crunch flaunts a light honey sugar coating over an airy, yet compact wheat swirl. The first bite was not quite what I was expecting. I have always imagined Cinnabon to produce overly sweet treats, which this was not. Instead, it possessed a mildly sweet and buttery cinnamon flavor. The taste exhibits a slight resemblance to an actual cinnamon roll, but on a much lower scale.

All in all, this cereal is an appealing, crunchy and satisfying indulgence. The $3.79 that I spent on this cereal (each box has 9 servings) is more than I am usually willing to pay, but intrigue got the best of me! If this cereal ever goes on sale, I would buy it again for a subtle treat. This cereal is living proof that you should not "judge a book by its cover."
