When one type of breakfast mimics the flavour(s) of one other type of breakfast.
“IHOP Mini Pancakes Cereal is the newest type of Breakfastception.”
I ought to admit I by no means actually understood the Christopher Nolan movie Inception, and have zero concept if this very topical reference is sensible. Anyway, Common Mills and IHOP have partnered on a Blueberry and Syrup flavored cereal.
I may very well be unsuitable, however the one pancake cereal I may even recall from one of many main firms was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Cap’n Crunch model. We’ve had loads of waffle–impressed cereals, a number of that had been muffin-based, and even French toast, however what number of have been distinctly pancake? I didn’t anticipate these to style a lot completely different from a waffle cereal, however that was nonetheless the principle intrigue.
An IHOP pancake cereal is fascinating, however will these blueberry and syrup mini pancakes be the cereal of your Incepted goals? In all probability not.
Will I ever correctly reference the Christopher Nolan movie Inception? Additionally, in all probability not.
I’ll give this cereal credit score the place it’s due. It smells good. Nicely, I imply, it smells like a Blueberry Eggo waffle, nevertheless it’s actually all simply batter, proper? The distinction, particularly in cereal type, is negligible, and let’s be actual, waffles are simply pancakes that go to the gymnasium. Past the scent, I’ve to just about discredit this cereal from right here on out. It’s one of many worst textured cereals I’ve had in a very long time, even after soaking in milk.
The items are just like Cookie Crisp however denser, and for some motive, these blueberry specs are rather a lot sharper than I recall the chocolate chips being. For those who love a superb crunch out of your cereal, these could also be your jam, nevertheless it’s not very satisfying as a result of the items style stale.
The flavour itself is respectable, however I’d classify it as “Crunch Berry Lite.” Whereas there’s a mildly nice trace of maple, and the bottom taste jogged my memory of waffle or pancake batter, the blueberry actually simply jogged my memory of a weak Crunch Berry. It finally ends up being the dominant taste earlier than all of it fades away right into a bizarre aftertaste.
I used to be stunned at how delicate and bland the general taste was. Actually, this has the sweetness stage of an “grownup” blueberry cereal with the form and texture of a child’s cereal. It’s dwelling in a useless zone for nobody specifically.
I’ll be truthful and say it’s not totally unhealthy as a result of the cereal does flip the milk right into a candy sky-blue coloration that might make even Aunt Beru proud, however every thing else is meh.
The “IHOP” right here stands for “I Have Different Preferences” as a result of this one ranks close to the underside of cereals primarily based on different breakfast staples. I don’t know the way lengthy you’ve obtained to attempt these, however I really feel they’re gonna be one and achieved. I wouldn’t thoughts seeing IHOP regroup and take a look at once more, however hopefully not as IHOB.
Really, ya know what? Go for it. I’d attempt your burger-flavored cereal. Take it up one other stage as a result of that proper there would really be an inception. I believe. Possibly. Maybe.
In all probability not.
