Hello Underdogs, and a very happy Tuesday to you! I was at the store last week looking for cereal for my Mom. To say my Mom is a cereal fan is an understatement! She loves the stuff, so I try to hit as many sales as possible. I don’t really care for it, but my cousin said there was some new Pebbles cereal out that we should try. That was a throw back to my childhood, so I was interested! We did a quick scan and then saw the box for Cinnamon Pebbles!
Pebbles cereal has a very famous mascot in The Flintstones. They have at least 2 other cereals which are Fruity Pebbles, and Coco Pebbles. I am not sure if there are any others, but these are the ones that I see the most when I go to the grocery store. I was pretty excited to try this out. It was only $2.50 cents for the box, but it is a smaller size than what you would normally see. I was okay paying this price because if it was terrible, at least I didn’t spend an arm and a leg on it!
When I opened the box, I was thankfully not overwhelmed by the smell of cinnamon. It was a light smell that was comparable to any other cereal that has cinnamon in it. The little pebbles are just like I recall, but instead of being colorful, or brown, they are lighter in color and you can see the coating on it. The bag inside the box was pretty full and it was easy to pull open, so I wasn’t worried I was going to throw cereal all around the room due to the fact that the bag was giving me trouble! That’s the last thing I needed!
I am one of those strange people that don’t eat my cereal with milk. I eat it more like a toddler, and that is by either putting it in a snack bag, or a bowl and just eating it by hand. I much rather have cereal as a snack during the day. I hardly ever eat it for breakfast. I put the cereal in my little snack baggie, and went to work for a bit before trying it out. The first taste was a moment that I almost regretted not having any liquid with my cereal. It was very dry, and I almost went back to the kitchen to get some milk. I gave it another chance a few minutes later and it was fine. The pebbles are not ideal for snacking like I want to do, but much better for a bowl and milk situation.
I really do like this cereal, but I wouldn’t eat a whole bunch of it. I am glad it’s in a small box, because you just don’t need much. If you are worried about sugar, then you need to either eat a very small portion, or just stay away from this in general. I don’t think it suits my snack needs, but I might break down one day and try this with milk. There is some dryness to this cereal, more than others that I have come into contact with, so keep that in mind if you are a cereal snacker. I am glad I have a roommate who may like this cereal, because I think it will take me a long time to get through this box.
I give Cinnamon Pebbles a 3 out of 5 Stars. The price was pretty good, the size of the box is smaller but I am glad it’s no bigger than what it is. It is not great for snacking, but good for your cereal. It is pretty sweet, so I would be aware of that if you need to watch your sugar intake.
