General Mill’s Oatmeal Crisp

Oatmeal Crisp

Didn’t buy this because of the claims of “healthiness”, but thinking it might actually be a crispy cereal. Turns out both “oatmeal” and “crisp” are misnomers. Though there was, surpisingly, a bit of almond flakes present. First of all – UGH! This was WAAAY TOO SWEET! Tastes like wheat bran flakes, with little oat-ness to it. In my opinion it had more of a hard crunchiness than light crispiness, so “Sweet Wheat Crunch” rather than “Oatmeal Crisp” would have been a more appropriate name. Won’t buy it or any other versions of Oatmeal Crisp again.
