REVIEW: Special K Pumpkin Spice Crunch
#CerealRant. It is absolutely fantastic to see all these pumpkin spice cereals being rolled out, but why only the healthy ones? Last year, we got shredded wheat. Shredded wheat! This year, we got Cheerios and Life. What’s next, Pumpkin Spice All Bran?
Anyway, when I heard there was a cereal called Pumpkin Spice Crunch I nearly shit myself a pumpkin pie. Could it be Cap’n Crunch’s Pumpkin Spice Crunch? What about General Mills Pumpkin Spice Toast Crunch!!!
Aw, shit… it’s just Special K. Introducing Kellogg’s Special K Pumpkin Spice Crunch. ?
#RantOver. I guess I can’t complain too much. Kellogg’s Special K Pumpkin Spice Crunch has a pumpkin on the front of the box, and that’s seriously all I need these days. The description is crunchy rice & wheat flakes (ugh) with nutmeg, allspice, ginger, & cinnamon clusters (yay!)
Excitement fades quickly. The only accurate part of the title “Pumpkin Spice Crunch” is “crunch.” It’s crunchy as hell but doesn’t taste like pumpkin spice. It tastes like Special K. At least that’s what I’m assuming, because I couldn’t tell you the last time I had non-pumpkin Special K. Scratch that – yes I can. It’s right now.
The rice & wheat flakes in Special K Pumpkin Spice Crunch basically taste like Rice Krispies that were sweetened slightly with brown sugar and molasses. That’s it. The white clusters, which I don’t even know WTF they’re made of, are the only thing with unique flavor. They taste like ginger covered in some kind of creamy yogurt or white chocolate. Would be great, but there’s barely any in here. I had to eat a lot of this cereal before I started to appreciate some subtle spices, but the strength and the ratios are off.
I won’t drag this out. Kellogg’s Special K Pumpkin Spice Crunch doesn’t improve nor decline in milk. It just gets wet.
In summary, WHERE IS PUMPKIN SPICE TOAST CRUNCH?
