Dulce de Leche Cheerios were brought to the table for review and this is how they rated in our system:
Originality – Good idea for Cheerios to continue to move forward on such a well know brand. We all agreed it is a great move to take the product in new directions and Dulce de Leche makes sense.
Aftertaste – No aftertaste
Mouth Feel – Like any of the Cheerios, not too hard
Sweetness – This is where this product does well. It does not oversaturate you with sweetness, has a nice amount (this won’t be a Cheerio you need to add sugar to).
Flavor – It does taste like a subtle caramel so I think it is a winner. Me personally I am not a huge Dulce de Leche fan and I even liked it. Jocelin Cap commented on how she liked the fact it did not have an artificial flavor but rather a nice authentic Dulce de Leche taste.
Look – Multi-Colored Cheerios reflecting the caramel colors, not a huge surprise here.
Packaging – Good packing to let you know you are not getting your regular Cheerios, but familiar enough to know that you are still getting a Cheerios product.
Around the Table – Dulce de Leche Cheerios were a hit and only Kid N, aka Kid Super Picky was not pleased. It can also be noted that these are a great snack for the kids to take dry in a snack bag, and should even make a nice trail mix. While I liked the cereal it was still only change of pace cereal, but on the higher end of it for me. Kid C would probably add it to his list of regular cereal and it seems my wife would also bring it in on a change of pace cereal. Kid N was not a fan, but he is very picky.
The following scores (out of 5) were recorded during our taste testing:
Damon Cap – 3.5
Jocelin Cap – 3.5
Kids C – 4
Kid N – 1
A Hint of Rich Caramel Flavor and the Goodness of Cheerios®!
Enjoy Dulce de Leche Cheerios® cereal for a sweet touch of naturally flavored caramel baked into every bite.
Dulce de Leche (pronounced “DOOL say day LAY chay”) is a Spanish term for a thick caramel sauce popular in Latin America that inspired this new Cheerios flavor. And like all Cheerios cereals, Dulce de Leche delivers nutrition you can trust. It’s a deliciously smart choice for everyone at your breakfast table.
