This CinnaFuego Toast Crunch pouch of fiery cereal that may solely be bought on-line at Walmart.com beginning on August 12, 2022 (whereas provides final) makes me scratch my head.
(UPDATE: The introduced date is August 12, however as I kind this, it’s already accessible for buy on the Walmart web site.)
You might assume it’s the cereal itself that’s making me really feel this fashion, but it surely’s not. It’s the packaging, particularly that gap on the prime. If it’s accessible on-line solely, why is it there? If it’s not going to be in a retailer, it doesn’t want that gap to be placed on a show hook.
Whereas I don’t know why that gap is there, I do know that, regardless of being a Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, CinnaFuego Toast Crunch won’t enchantment to everybody.
It’s been eons since I’ve had Wrigley’s Massive Crimson gum, however after opening this cereal’s pouch, its scent introduced again ideas of that traditional chewing gum. It made my mouth water a bit, and I want that water stayed in my mouth as a result of this cereal is fuego.
As I chewed on a chunk, which appears precisely like common Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I didn’t assume it was spicy. Nevertheless, after a couple of moments, the warmth wave got here. Nevertheless it wasn’t too fuego. That thought modified after shoveling a spoonful with milk into my mouth. Once more, it took a couple of moments, however the addition of extra items stoked the hearth. It’s a notch or two decrease than Flamin’ Scorching and possibly barely greater than Scorching Tamales sweet. I can deal with this spicy cereal in small doses, however I couldn’t eat a regular-sized serving as a part of a whole breakfast.
Now, if you happen to’re considering, “If you happen to’re consuming it with milk, it shouldn’t be so unhealthy as a result of the milk will mood the warmth.” Properly, I drink soy and pea milk, and so they’re like paper to the flaming arrow that’s this cereal. And I’m unsure dairy milk will make a distinction as a result of the cinnamon AND peppers will probably be washed into it.
The product’s press launch says the mix of Cinnadust and spicy peppers will ship a fully absurd expertise. That tastes proper to me, but it surely doesn’t supply a fully scrumptious expertise. After I eat this, I don’t consider Cinnamon Toast Crunch in any respect. As an alternative, Massive Crimson gum or Scorching Tamales involves thoughts, and on the cinnamon snack scale, the traditional cereal is way forward of the gum and sweet. I’m extra tickled by its uniqueness than its taste. There’s additionally a bitterness that often pops up within the aftertaste that I rapidly neglect about when the spiciness begins poking in my mouth.
CinnaFuego Toast Crunch is an enchanting product and it was neat to attempt. If you happen to’re serious about discovering out what a spicy breakfast cereal is like, you can purchase this. However, if that is hanging on a show hook at a brick-and-mortar retailer sooner or later, I wouldn’t attempt it once more.
