Chocolate Chex Cereal

I eat cereal at least once a day, sometimes more. It depends on how lazy I am feeling once dinner rolls around. One of the trends I have been noticing lately is established brands adding sweetened versions to their line. One of the new ones is Chocolate Chex.

The genius part of this cereal is that not all of the Chex pieces are chocolate. Which gives it a milder flavor, and not super sweet like your traditional “kids cereal”. Also it is a mix of both Rice and Corn Chex, borrowing from the excellent Kellogg’s Crispix. Plus I have felt that the rice and corn flavors are the two best flavors anyways. Like other Chex cereals it does a pretty good job of not getting soggy to quick. It holds it form really well.

Another good point about it is that it is only 10 calories more than regular, or plain Chex. The only problem I have is the chocolate is kind of chalky. Even that is just a small gripe.

This is a good cereal. Not too sweet, not too plain. Just as healthy as a regular Chex cereal. Plus it is a nice change of pace if your are burned out on traditional cereals. It really hits that sweet tooth.

  1. That IS brilliant. I wouldn't buy a completely chocolate cereal (no cereal will usurp cocoa pebbles for me, chocolate-wise), but SEMI-chocolate is tempting...
