I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but not everything needs to be covered in chocolate. Not Just Cereal is a fine example. Chocolate coated cereal sounds like a great idea, but it’s overkill. One of my roommates liked the cereals, but roommate two and I were not fans. I think it must just be up to individual tastes. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t bad, just nothing special. My roommates and I did find ourselves munching on it when nothing else was available, though, so that might count for something. I suppose it’s alright, but it would be an unlikely purchase for me to make at a store.

Not Just Cereal Fruity OThe first one we tried was Fruity O’s. Think Fruit Loops covered in chocolate. I was apprehensive about this one especially because it just sounded like a gross combination. It wasn’t half bad and I liked it a bit better than the others. I guess my biggest complaint is the chocolate isn’t the best. It’s similar to the chocolate on Whoppers, but not as good.

Not Just Cereal Toasted Rice The Toasted Rice is the only one that I would consider buying. The crispy rice blends nicely with the chocolate and is overall pleasant in taste. I still don’t think it’s necessary to drench cereal in chocolate, but given the plainness of the Chex-like cereal, the chocolate is an improvement. I mean, hey, there’s a reason Chex Mix is so popular and snackable. You just gotta add something to it because Chex alone is boring.

Not Just Cereal Honey Toasted O My least favorite is the Honey Toasted O’s. I thought this was the one I would like the most since I love the cereal and how could I not like it with chocolate on it? I dunno, but I didn’t. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is I don’t like about the Honey Toasted O’s. It just seems to be a waste of chocolate and honey O’s.

Not Just Cereal Cinnamon Crunch I was also not thrilled with the Cinnamon Crunch variety, either. The crunch was satisfying, but the cinnamon flavoring and the chocolate didn’t mesh very harmoniously. The flavors seemed to compete too much for my attention and it felt as if there was a war going on to see who could lay claim to my taste buds. I think that pretty much summarizes why I am not a Not Just Cereal fan. When the cereal already has a very prominent flavor, the chocolate is just too much to add to the mix. I think that’s why the Toasted Rice was the best. It was a bland cereal jazzed up with a coating of chocolate.

So how can I really express where this product stands in my mind? In light of feeling a need to quantify more precisely how good or not so good something is, I’ve decided to implement a new rating scale for my reviews. On a scale of deliciousness, one is the lowest on the pleasure scale and five is the highest. I think it’s fitting that since I’m reviewing candy and my name is Bonnie I shall denote the unit as a BonBon. Today, I give Not Just Cereal a cumulative three BonBons- comfortably, smack dab in the middle of fantastic and disgusting. 3 BonBons

    It probably depends a lot on what type of cereal is covered with the chocolate. A salty, unsweet one would probably taste pretty good.

    It does seem like the quality of the chocolate would be key. Cheap chocolate has its limits.

    I just wanted to comment that Chex brand cereal makes what are called muddy buddies from time to time. It’s Chex cereal with peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar coating them. They are rich but good. That has been a recipe for years so I guess Chex finally thought they would make a version you can buy at the store, a limited edition version anyway.

    I’m interested in checking this out, but they definitely don’t sell it where I live. We do have Ritter Sport candy bars. The milk chocolate with cornflakes is my fave.

    I don’t know about the ones you got, but the ones I tried were nasty. I didn’t finish more than two or three pieces before tossing the whole box. The chocolate was cheap and kind of plastic textured. Not a repeat for me.
