The Breakfast Cereal Bar Gauntlet

rice krispies, cinnamon toast, lucky charms, lucky charm, golden graham

Rice Krispies Treats – This is the original. Savory, light and delicious. Rice Krispies Treats have an unparalleled texture compared to the other three.

Golden Graham Treats – Now I’m not exactly sure what Golden Grahams are, but these are very chocolatey and taste somewhat like the chocolate Fiber One bars.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats – Sky rockets in flight, cinnamon delight! Everybody loves Cinnamon Toast Crunch and with good reason. This bar does the original honor.

Lucky Charms Treats – Lucky Charms marshmallows have that unmistakable taste and texture, and it’s very present in this bar. I’m also a fan of the bright and colorful wrapper.

Nothing is more difficult than duking it out between items that evoke strong childhood memories and go straight to the heart (through the stomach, as the old adage goes). This is a toughie. I am going to first disqualify the Rice Krispies Treats. They are delicious and probably my favorite texture – the other three have that harder bottom  that’s trending in delicious bars.

The Winner

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats are delicious! It’s tricky trying to measure how close these are to the original without dunking them into some cold milk, but this treat takes the cake! I mean … it takes the cereal box! The cinnamon is on point and it stands on its own two feet as a sweet bar experience. Beware, these larger bars are in the 200+ calorie range! Happy snacking.

  1. CTC. I eat it right out of the box. Now I will have to grab one of these bars at the gas station tomorrow and give it a try! 🙂

  2. Oooo, Lucky Charms bars. I did not know about these. Now I have to find some!

  3. I’m going to have to pretend I never read this. Oh my goodness, these look good! 🙂
