We were offered an opportunity to try a new cereal. We were all excited, but I think TJ was the most excited because Cocoa Puffs is one of his favorite cereals. I was excited because this is the first new product from Cocoa Puffs since they were originally introduced in 1958. RB was excited because I was letting him eat something new without yelling at him. (He’s eaten things I’ve planned on reviewing in the past before I got a chance to review them. He’s now banned from eating anything he’s never seen in the house before without checking with me first.)
Cocoa Puffs combines the chocolate Cocoa Puffs most of us are familiar with with new vanilla puffs. Cocoa Puffs Combos is a whole grain cereal that contains Calcium and Vitamin D. I have always found Cocoa Puffs too chocolately and having an odd not sweet taste, so I liked these a lot. The vanilla totally changes the chocolate that people are used to, but in a good way. (Think of how milk changes Oreos or how chocolate syrup changes vanilla ice cream.) It was an entirely different taste, much better in my opinion. RB enjoyed it and said he’d eat it again. TJ didn’t mind it but he preferred the original Cocoa Puffs because he’s a chocoholic.
