Cereal Lovers Need to Know These 2 New Walmart Popcorns
Combining both the cinnamon-sugar flavor of Cinnamon Toast Crunch with the subtly salty taste of popcorn, Cinnamon Toast Crunch popcorn was first introduced in July 2021 at Sam’s Club, the wholesale club owned by Walmart. Each piece of fluffy popcorn is coated in what General Mills calls “Cinnadust” – you know that combination of cinnamon and sugar that’s the taste you can see? Walmart now also carries the product, along with Cocoa Puffs popcorn, which replaced “Cinnadust” with a sweet “cocoa glaze” that makes popcorn taste like a dollop of Cocoa Puffs. FoodBeast reports that the Cocoa Puffs version is currently a Walmart exclusive.
But exclusive or not, how good are these cereal popcorn bags? cereal decadently described the Cinnamon Toast variety as having an adequate caramel coating, as well as a “buttery golden brown flavor” with a “delicate cinnamon-sugar kiss” to top it off. Their only minor complaint was that it could have used a little more salt. Impulse purchases Cocoa Puffs popcorn review noted that it was better than they expected and echoed the original cereal perfectly. Their only complaint was, again, that the popcorn needed salt to balance out the sweetness.
Neither review suggests trying the popcorn with milk, but hey, we’re not here to judge how you swallow your bowl of cereal-flavored popcorn.
