Soooome-bod-y’s jeeeeal-ous. 😝
With the return of Oreo O’s delighting the universe earlier this year, Nabisco’s other flagship cookie has something to say.
Hey guys… you like cookies and milk? Well I’m THE cookie. Did you know 53% of Americans prefer chocolate chip cookies over other varieties? Yeah, that’s me. And 13.5% of Americans admit to having eaten 20 or more chocolate chip cookies at one time. Also me. You love me. Make me a cereal. ~ Chips Ahoy! Cookies, talking to nobody in particular.
After all, some redemption is in order. Keebler kinda screwed the pooch when it released The Keebler Cereal with real freakin’ mini chip chocolate cookies in it. The chocolate chip cookies were fine, but the rest of the cereal just tasted like corn.
If I wanted to eat corn, I’d just wait for the friggin’ Jolly Green Giant to release a Jolly Green Giant Cereal.
Post Chips Ahoy! Cereal features cookie-shaped pieces made out of corn and flour. Uh oh…
The ingredients also identify cookie bits and cocoa somewhere in here, so at least this corn has that going for it.
I guess with all the excitement of the Chips Ahoy! branding, I forgot that Cookie Crisp already exists, and that’s pretty much what the Chips Ahoy! Cereal tastes like. Same exact crunch, and more or less the same flavor. A slightly more brown-sugary flavor is about all that separates it, but we’re talking at the margins.
In milk is when I noticed that Post’s Chips Ahoy! Cereal is a touch sweeter than Cookie Crisp, making it nominally more preferable (and I’m not a big fan of Cookie Crisp). Its ability to retain its crunch in milk is perhaps its strongest ability; this shit has a supersonic crunch no matter how long you let it sit. But overall, I’d prefer a much bigger chocolate chip presence.
I guess they’re similar to real Chips Ahoy! cookies in that regard….
Long live Oreo O’s.
