I need two rodent claws, four cockroach fangs and one pair of mosquito wings. It’s gonna take some heavy artillery to get decent dibs on Kellog’s Simply Cinnamon Corn Flakes. The evil children attacked. They pounced on these flakes and pretty much stuffed the whole damn box down their greedy-azz throats. I only had one bowl, plus the crumbs left at the bottom to leave me in confusion.
This reinvention of the corn flake is different from its sister-original. If you open your eyeballs wide enough, you will notice a sweetened glaze that helps the cinnamon fuse to the flakes. It’s sweetened with 6 grams of sugar instead of 2 grams like the original flakes. Too bad the milk man-handles the cinnamon flavor until you can barely taste it at all. Yet the sweet flavor still lingers.
They’re pretty good, but Simply Sweetened Flakes is what these really are. If your pockets are dry, can make this at home for cheaper. Just sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar, and chew.
