Cinnamon Toast Crunch is without doubt one of the biggest cereals of all time. The unique Stuffed Puffs is what occurs when graham crackers notice it’s the third wheel and lets chocolate and marshmallow lastly be alone collectively.
As a fan of each, my eyes acquired as large as marshmallows once I first noticed the promo pictures for Stuffed Puffs Large Bites Cinnamon Toast Crunch Stuffed Marshmallows. Even earlier than attempting them, I believed a Cinnamon Toast Crunch-coated marshmallow with a Cinnamon Toast Crunch-flavored creme could be epic. However after attempting them, my eyes are as puffy as marshmallows from all of the crying about how NOT epic they’re.
Okay, I didn’t cry, however I’m slightly dissatisfied with these.
Though the cereal is pulverized into mud, I anticipated some crunch from the coating. There’s a crunch, however after getting up shut and private with these, it seems it doesn’t come from the cereal.
As a substitute, it comes from opaque crystals dotted throughout the floor. The sunshine crunch is just like the sugary coating on Peeps, however as a result of these crystals aren’t in all places, like on Peeps, the cereal mud’s smooth texture will get uncovered. Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s lowercase crunch is a part of what makes it so nice and to not have it right here is saddening.
Additionally, the coating lacks a noticeable Cinnamon Toast Crunch taste. I feel there’s a touch of it, however I’m stunned it doesn’t stand out for one thing that covers a lot floor space. So lack of crunch and taste makes it seem to be the cereal is admittedly there for seems and never a lot else. If the crushed cereal wasn’t so smashed, the coating might need had an genuine cereal crunch and a bit extra taste.
Whereas the outside doesn’t remind me of the favored cereal, the creme filling considerably does, and it gives all of the cinnamon taste. Though, I get extra of a cinnamon roll vibe (and aroma) than a Cinnamon Toast Crunch vibe. However I’m not complaining about that as a result of the filling is delicious. There are additionally crumbles within the creme, and I do discover them, however they’ve a soggy oat texture, and I’m questioning what’s the purpose of them.
I’ve loved most Stuffed Puffs I’ve stuffed into my mouth, and, in fact, each morning, afternoon, and night is slightly brighter after a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, however this mashup of the 2 is simply good and never nice. Possibly I shouldn’t have had such excessive expectations, or I’m being a Snack Scrooge. I don’t know. However I’m simply closing my eyes and shaking my head at what might’ve been.
