Dealer Joe’s Cocoa Crunch Cereal

Trader Joe's Cocoa Crunch Cereal

However each now and again, I will have a bowl of scrumptious cereal that is so good, so tasty, that it will take me again to these days after I solely took pause from shoveling a collection of spoonfuls into my face to sing alongside to the Muppet Infants theme tune…

This isn’t a type of cereals.

This is sort of a cereal from a tragic parallel actuality the place bowls of spherical chocolate aren’t candy treats, however are, fairly, disciplinary instruments employed by overzealous dad and mom. “That is it younger man, it is a bowl of Dealer Joe’s Cocoa Crunch for you, after which a time-out in your room to consider what you have accomplished!” 

It is doubtlessly a model of Cocoa Puffs for the gluten-free, wheat-free crowd, I suppose. However even gluten standing apart, there are fairly a couple of key variations between this providing and basic Cocoa Puffs. The items listed below are barely smaller, not fairly as inflexible, and for my part, not practically as chocolatey. 

Personally, I will take Cocoa Pebbles over Cocoa Puffs any day of the week. I identical to the feel higher, and I really feel like they yield a nicer taste of milk on the finish of the bowl. Additionally, Cocoa Pebbles are fully gluten free and all the time have been. I do know you Cocoa Puffs followers—my spouse included, cuckoos that you’re, will battle me tooth and nail on that assertion, however I feel, for as soon as, we are able to set our variations apart and agree on one factor: this Dealer Joe’s cocoa cereal is vastly inferior to both Submit’s or Common Mills’ basic choices.

The style of rice, sorghum, and corn all problem the slight cocoa taste for dominance. It is barely candy. It might have been higher to easily keep away from cocoa or chocolate style altogether and market this product as a wholesome, multigrain cereal. It may not have been any extra thrilling, however no less than it would not have been so disappointing.

Each Sonia and I are leaning towards returning this one and taking TJ’s up on their no-questions-asked refund coverage as soon as once more. We do not do it typically, but when a product simply does not work for us, we cannot power ourselves to eat it…and we actually will not simply throw it out. 

I can think about anyone on the market likes it—anyone who needs a grainy cereal with a really delicate chocolate style, however two and a half stars a chunk is as beneficiant as Sonia and I can be on this one.
