Chocolate Toast Crunch and French Toast Crunch

It's a two-for-one deal!  Both of these popped up in stores recently, and I haven't done a food review in a while, so...  here goes nothing.

Chocolate Toast Crunch

Basically, if you took Cocoa Puffs and flattened them out to look like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, you'd end up with this.  It even gives you chocolate milk to drink from the bowl when you're done.  They claim there's cinnamon in there, but I didn't really taste it.  To be honest, it wasn't a huge disappointment that I couldn't taste it, because this one is all about the chocolate, and boy does it ever deliver on that front.

The verdict: It's pretty good.  Get yourself some while it lasts.

French Toast Crunch

The front of the box somewhat loudly claims "You asked, it's back!".  Who asked?  It existed before?  [citation needed]

The cereal is shaped like little pieces of bread, complete with the edges colored to look like crust.  Honestly, it looks like a smaller, crunchy version of french toast, but that's about where the comparison stops.  It's made out of corn, and there's no eggs.  Last I checked, the definition of french toast was regular bread, dipped in eggs and then cooked on a griddle.  It also claims to have syrup, and while there is kind of a syrupy flavor, it tastes nothing like maple syrup.  Once again, they say there's cinnamon in there, but I didn't notice it.

The verdict: It tastes good, but it's not really french toast in any sense of the term.  I most likely won't be getting any more boxes.
