Erewhon Aztec Crunchy Corn & Amaranth Cereal Review

Erewhon Aztec Crunchy Corn & Amaranth CerealI'm always up for trying new cereals, and I wind up buying a few different kinds at once just to test a few out. Sometimes I go for whole-grain, other times I'm more interested in slightly sweetened snacks, and occasionally only hot cereals will do the trick. When I found Erewhon Aztec Crunchy Corn & Amaranth cereal on sale at the grocery store for $3.99, I picked it up right away. The name sounded so exotic - Aztec? Amaranth cereal? I was also drawn to the fact that it was organic and gluten free, with little sugar. Sounded healthy, but would it taste good?

Erewhon cereal is advertised as having a unique shape that "ensures that Aztec stays crisp in milk." Yes, it certainly does that. In fact, when I poured myself a bowl sans milk to munch on, I was amazed at the crunchiness of this cereal (and not in a particularly good way, either). The corn and amaranth nuggets are so crunchy that I found myself getting a headache after chewing them for a little while! Milk tempered this a little bit, but I still found the texture jarringly crisp.

As for the taste, I have to admit that it was pretty bland. I could pick up on a tiny bit of the corn flavor, but honestly it was pretty tasteless overall. In fact, as I simultaneously munched and pondered, I thought that perhaps the crunchiness was the most interesting thing this cereal had going for it.
