REVIEW: Fortunate Charms S’mores Cereal

Bear in mind final yr’s Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Fortunate Charms Combine Cereal? It’s comprehensible in the event you don’t as a result of I additionally forgot about it and was solely reminded about it after I searched for the same product I knew existed a competing cereal firm supplied. However this new Fortunate Charms S’mores Cereal is just like the sequel to that, however with much less common cereals and a much less verbose title. It’s mainly Chocolate Fortunate Charms blended with what seems to be Golden Grahams.

What’s with the “what seems to be”?

After making an attempt the square-shaped items on their very own, I’m unsure they’re really Golden Grahams. Nevertheless it’s acquired to be, proper? Golden Grahams is below the Huge G tent. Why develop a barely completely different cereal when there’s already an choice? Ugh. That is getting me labored up. I’ve put an excessive amount of effort and thought into this. If solely I had some old-timey graham crackers that Sylvester Graham made to convey down my pleasure.

I’m suspicious in regards to the ridged-cereal items as a result of, whereas they do have a gentle taste that jogs my memory of Golden Grahams, there’s additionally a style that I might describe as frivolously charred. Look, as somebody who likes their marshmallows barely burnt as a result of it provides a singular taste and TOTALLY not as a result of I like fireplace slightly an excessive amount of, that char might be a part of the s’mores expertise. Nevertheless it’s odd to be tasting it with a cereal. Granted, I discover that uncommon taste when consuming these squares individually. However when blended with the opposite items, it’s not noticeable in any respect.

What’s barely extra noticeable within the cereal as an entire, however to not a degree that I’d like, is the graham. With most spoonfuls, it doesn’t stand out among the many chocolatey items and sugary marshmallows, and due to that, it’s exhausting for me to say that that is s’mores-like. That’s particularly the case when the chocolatey taste leaks into the milk. It just about tastes like Chocolate Fortunate Charms, which remains to be magically scrumptious, however this doesn’t have a magical s’mores taste.

Fortunate Charms S’mores Cereal is a good a part of a whole breakfast, however it’s additionally a slight disappointment. However, to make it compelling and a product I received’t overlook, like Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Fortunate Charms Combine Cereal, I’ve been pondering that I’m in an alternate universe the place Golden Grahams is the beloved square-shaped cereal that has its personal Grahamdust and Chocolate Fortunate Charms is the unique.
