Taste Test

Taste test: New cereals

The cereal aisle is one of our favorites at the grocery store. Every week, it seems new options are rolled out, each with even more sugar, chocolate or some twist on an old favorite. January seems a particularly popular month for new cereal promotions. This week, we found four new options touting peanut butter as the featured ingredient. We tasted each right out of the box and judges were pleased with a couple. But, they agreed, the new cereals seemed more like movie snacks than breakfast food.
