Snack Cellar’s Keys to the Game, Brought to You By Men’s Wearhouse:

  1. Pink Donut Donut Shop Cereal is looking to prove the doubters wrong after an upset win over Cinnamon Toast Crunch Blasted Shreds in the Wildcard round
  2. After Banana Nut Cheerios’ Divisional win, its Chocolate Peanut Butter kin is hoping to extend the oat rings’ streak to 3 and Cheeri-0
  3. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios basically saved General Mills from bankruptcy, so the Cereal Bowl should be a cakewalk
Pink Donut Donut Shop Cereal (Wildcard Recap)

  • Tastes a lot like sugary frosting and owns its super-sweet image
  • Still not sure what “pink donut” means
  • Score: 8 out of 10
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios

I know what you’re thinking: Reese’s Os! Well, not quite. The first thing I notice about Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios is an earthy, almost salty peanut butter aspect, followed by a deep cocoa flavor. It’s good, but noticeably less sweet than Reese’s Puffs and even Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds. If Reese’s Puffs is the young, fun, kids’ cereal, think of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios as its mature, more refined sibling. One major downside: a lot of the flavor washes away in milk, since Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios’ sweetness comes from the powdery coating on each piece. I’m scoring this the same as Pink Donut, but the edge goes to Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios.

Score: 8 out of 10

And your winner is: General Mills Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios!
