Have I mentioned that I’ve been on a major cereal kick lately? I’ve been on a major cereal kick lately. And as I so often do, I’ve been parlaying my love for food with my proclivity for content. For some reason, my cereal content has been resonating with my audience in a major way. If you ask me, it’s strange that cereal is moving the needle on Instagram stories, but alas here we are. Then again, cereal has been a stalwart in so many of our lives, so I suppose it’ll always put asses in the seats.
I’ve frequented the cereal aisle at the store in search of new creations that pique my interest. My last “live” review featured Cold Stone Creamery Birthday Cake Remix Cereal. The people went nuts, as expected. I knew I needed to deliver again in a big way the next time around…
Enter: Strawberry Pop-Tarts Cereal
With the luxury of unrestricted word count, I can break this down here in more detail. So I’ll touch on everything mentioned during that Instagram story and then some.
To be honest, I couldn’t tell you the last time I ate Pop-Tarts. But they were obviously a staple in my upbringing. I actually prefer the Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tart, which was available in cereal form. But that flavor profile is ubiquitous and hardly proprietary. The Frosted Strawberry Pop-Tart, however, is a one of a kind flavor that could never be mistaken or confused. Naturally, this was the only choice. I wouldn’t turn away any credit for putting my personal bias aside in the spirit of a fair and objective experiment.
I loved this cereal. Of all of the cereals I’ve tried of late that stem from a non-cereal product, this one by far emulated it’s original taste the best. These legitimately tasted like Strawberry Pop-Tarts. There was a strawberry filling inside each piece that left an incredible aftertaste. I wish there was more filling, but I’d have to imagine that’s a tough task with cereal. But this far exceeded my expectations albeit tempered.
One word of advice: don’t grab a dry handful because they desperately need milk. Much like Capn Crunch, they’ll destroy the roof of your mouth sans milk. Other than that, there’s not much to complain about. Approved and endorsed.
