Food Finds: Peanut Butter Cheerios

20 Apr

Despite having decidedly juvenile tastes in breakfast cereals, before this month I hadn’t had a Cheerio in decades. That is until I saw that Cheerios had come out with a peanut butter flavour. I just couldn’t resist, being a sucker for anything peanut butter flavoured.

Peanut Butter CheeriosWhen I picked up the box, I didn’t know just how good they’d be. Turns out they were so good that the ‘limited time’ flavour has become really difficult to find and General Mills’ Facebook page is swamped with consumer requests to keep the cereal coming!

It’s not too sweet, with just a nice hint of peanut butter. Stays nicely crunchy in milk. (God I hate soggy cereal.) My next experiment will be mixing the peanut butter Cheerios with a box of chocolate ones. Just try to stop me.

Long story short, try to find yourselves a box before they disappear. Or, if you live close to the border or are making a trip there, bring back a box. Turns out those Americans have had this flavour for a while and have been hoarding it.
