Kellogg's Keebler Cookie Cruch Cereal

cookiecrunch.jpgTo most, a moment of clarity ensues upon discovery of Kellogg's Keebler Cookie Crunch. I've heard testimony stating that, "...the box emitted a guiding light unto my feet, a lamp unto my path." I unfortunately, didn't feel this spiritual high, and approached the box quite skeptical, because Kellogg's never fails to let me down. This being said, Kellogg's Keebler Cookie Crunch, like many of its limited-release predecessors, fall short in so many different ways.

Keebler Cookie Crunch is mundane at best, and its attempt to re-create a classic cereal (whose name should go without mentioning), is just as futile an attempt as trying to re-invent the wheel. I don't know how they could screw it up, the formula is so simple; take two classic snacks, cereal and cookies, and package them in one box. How much simpler does it get? I don't know, but I guess you'll have to ask the folks down at Kellogg's how they managed to botch this one, because they pulled it off yet again. Kellogg's Cookie Crunch is bland, soggy and tastes more like over-refined pretzels than cookies. Its originality lacks (in the fact that their is already another cookie-cereal combo on the market that's quite good), its taste is forgettable (what was I saying?) and as far as cereal mascots go, let's just say their are three elves out there who have been doing it right for over 50 years. Maybe those tiny Keebler elves need to keep doing what they do best, making cookies, and leave cereal making to the over-zealous Tiger's and ship-wrecked Cap'n's of the world.

never liked cookie style cereals. either too hard or too mushy, very unforgiving gray area.

Haven't had the chance to try it yet. But it looks like it may be good. I mean all of the cookies they make are good.

I was so excited to try these, and so disappointed with the outcome. Gross.

I think that there are so many Cereal brands out there that it is almost imposible to get a good named cereal on the market much less a good one.

My son loves Cookie Crisp. He asked me to buy these. He wouldn't finish a bowl. The box sat for weeks untouched. His brother and sister wouldn't finish the box off. Finally, I said " I'll dot it!". It is one of the worst cereals I've tasted in 40 years!
