The Elf on the Shelf line of cereals* has a brand new Walmart-exclusive taste that “magically cools your mouth as you eat.”
*I can’t imagine Elf on the Shelf is now a line of cereals, plural.
How is it?
Let’s begin with the promise of cooling. Once I eat a bit dry, I do discover a sensation in my mouth, one which I don’t get from different cereals. Is it cooling? I don’t know; you may be capable to persuade me it’s a warming sensation.
However in milk, the sensation is diluted. I do get some type of cooling phenomenon after I drink the leftover milk, however which may simply be the literal temperature.
I in contrast the elements with the Elf on the Shelf Sugar Cookie Cereal, and it seems that the magic ingredient is calcium carbonate. Any geologist price their halite* can let you know that’s limestone.
As for the flavour, I don’t know what “North Pole Snow Creme” is. However the waffle cone on the field means that it’s purported to be vanilla. It does style like vanilla, which is difficult to mess up. However actually, this simply tastes like some other generically candy corn cereal.
The marshmallows are so uncommon that Kellogg’s needn’t have bothered.
Anything it’s worthwhile to know?
I in contrast this new cereal with the Sugar Cookie selection, and the Snow Creme model is healthier. So should you’re at Walmart, there’s no want to choose up that pink and inexperienced selection.
The wintry coloration scheme of this cereal is my favourite half.
The Elf on the Shelf branding means this cereal is an opportunistic money seize, not a worthwhile cereal by itself. The “cooling” sensation is just too delicate to be, nicely, cool.
