Snack Cellar’s Keys to the Game, Brought to You By Gold Bond Medicated Powder:

  1. Tony the Tiger inhaled his way to victory over Cinnamon Vanilla Lucky Charms in yesterday’s Wildcard matchup
  2. Post Cereals had a weak first appearance with Chips Ahoy! Cereal’s disappointing early exit from the Cereal Bowl
  3. The back of Nutter Butter Cereal’s box invites me to “follow your passion for peanut butter in a whole new way,” so I think I’m in a committed relationship with cereal now
Chocolate Frosted Flakes (Wildcard Recap)

  • Rich semisweet chocolate flavor in every bite
  • Tony the Tiger’s new drug of choice
  • Score: 8 out of 10
Nutter Butter Cereal

After the massive letdown that Chips Ahoy! Cereal was, I started to worry that a #1 seed was too high for its Post Cereals teammate. But Nutter Butter Cereal has put those fears to rest. This cereal is excellent, and true to its namesake cookie’s flavor. Every piece is nutty, sweet, and even a little buttery, and it’s impossible not to think that you’re eating miniature Nutter Butter cookies in every spoonful. Its dense crunch and strong flavor hold up well in milk, too. My one critique of Nutter Butter Cereal is that it’s arguably too sweet, and its sugary coating became cloying about halfway through one serving. Nonetheless, it’s a great peanut butter cereal that’s more than worthy of a Cereal Bowl #1 seed.

Score: 8.5 out of 10

And your winner is: Post Nutter Butter Cereal!
