Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds vs. Banana Nut Cheerios
  1. Taste: This one’s close. Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds overcame the main weakness of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Blasted Shreds, concealing their shredded wheat flavor with a great peanut butter and chocolate combination. Banana Nut Cheerios, on the other hand, have an authentic banana flavor and strong nutty aspect from real pecan flavoring. I’ve got to give the slight edge to Shreds, which have a slightly more balanced flavor profile, where Banana Nut Cheerios lean a bit more toward “nut.” Advantage: Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds
  2. Texture: I always enjoy the light crunch of Cheerios, but I was really impressed by Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds’ texture. It doesn’t feel as dry as Frosted Mini Wheats, for example, but still has the familiar dense chew of shredded wheat. Advantage: Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds
  3. Milk Factor: Give me oat rings over soggy wheat any day. Advantage: Banana Nut Cheerios
  4. Intangibles: Banana Nut Cheerios are a new recipe for a classic brand. Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds are part of a completely new cereal line for General Mills. I’ve got to give a nod to the newcomer here. Advantage: Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds

And your winner is: General Mills Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds!
