Cocoa Pebbles Crisps

Well we had Fruity Pebble Crisps not too long ago. Now it's time to the other flavor. Cocoa Pebbles Crisps!


These crisps are just like giant Cocoa Pebbles Chips! 
Similar to the Fruity Pebbles Crisps, the back of the Cocoa Pebbles Crisps bag promises "Classic Cocoa Pebbles Flavor, Bite Size Snacking Fun, No Milk Needed."

Hmm. Well the Fruity Pebbles Crisps were a lot more colorful. You could really tell that it was made of individual rice pieces. With these chocolate ones, not so much. I think they're also covered in a fine powder perhaps, where-as the Fruity Pebbles weren't. While the Fruity Pebbles were bright and vibrant, these are pale. Much more pale than the real thing. 

See how deep and rich these Cocoa Pebbles are? Now that's some chocolate flavor. 

First we're going to taste the Cocoa Pebbles Crisps. They are a bit dense like the other crisps. For some reason I'm getting a tootsie roll flavor from the crisps. Odd. The kids are really engrossed in the back of the cereal box. 

Ah, they're finding the differences between the two pictures. Gotta love the stuff on the box to keep them busy while they're eating. 

Even Grandpa stopped by for a taste of the Crisps. Verdict - meh. 

But the cereal is not meh. It's got a good bit of cocoa flavor. 

The box claims "Turns Milk Chocolatey!" Looking at Alli's bowl I can certainly see that that's true.

And it's delicious to drink when you're done. The cereal wins again! That's twice now that the cereal has beaten out the crisps. They were interesting, but they did not improve on the original!

  1. Cocoa Pebbles...do like that chocolatey flavor, and the bonus chocolate milk at the end :-) Too bad the crisps never managed to match the flavor of the cereals. Alli & Ian, "Find the difference between two pictures" was always another favorite game of mine, too! EOM

    1. Yeah, it's too bad the Crisps weren't as good as they could have been. But they were still something unique and fun to try! We'll keep looking for new things!
