Dulce de Leche Cheerios

cheeriosddl.jpgDulce de leche is a thick, caramel-flavored sauce that is made by slowly heating sweetened milk until the sugars in the milk caramelize. It's popular in Latin America, and the folks at Cheerios thought that it would be a good flavor to incorporate into their product. Wow, were they were right! To me, the word “caramel” brings thoughts of a thick, sticky, rich desert. That’s not what you get with this cereal. Dulce de Leche Cherrios have a nice, light caramel flavor and are not overly sweet. In fact, they have less sugar than the other varieties of sweetened Cheerios. I have eaten Dulce de Leche Cheerios three different ways: straight out of the box, with milk, and with milk mixed 50/50 with Quaker Oatmeal Squares. They tasted great each way. I have a feeling that Dulce de Leche Cheerios are going to have a permanent place in my cupboard along with my other favorite cereals.
