What’s crunchier than a bag of toenails and nuttier than Greedy Kid #1 asking to borrow the car? It’s Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Cereal…or did you guess that already?
Had I known this cereal was pregnant with peanuts, I would have gone nut-prejudice and judged without knowing it personally. My first bite of these loud-azz crunchy flakes was infested with the peanut bits glued on by the honey glaze. But wait! I kinda like it. Hmmmm, it’s not too shabby.
Too bad I got seriously turned off by the weird color transformation of the milk. It turns “dirty bath water” color (like this dirty ole man’s bathing waters might look like). I suppose that’s from the molasses and “caramel color” ingredients.
Eh, I don’t like that part. The milk coloring just seems…unnatural. But I did keep on chewing because it was good. The Greedy Family inhaled the box with their eating-nostrils wide open. And now? It’s all gone.
