Product Review: Smurf-Berry Crunch Cereal

Smurf-Berry Crunch cereal
New! Smurf-Berry Crunch cereal from Post
I periodically put new toddler products through rigorous, real-mom testing -- which means I use them and tell you what I think.
This week's product: Smurf-Berry Crunch Cereal; $1.59 a box; available at your local grocery store.
What it is: A rad new cereal from Post. Think little red and blue nuggets of fruity goodness in a bowl. Wicked tasty.
And obviously healthy for your toddlers, too, because of all those fruit-flavored corn puffs. I can't tell if those red ones are supposed to be cherry or strawberry flavored, but it's some kind of berry, anyway. The blue ones must be blueberries (because what other kind of blue fruit is there?).

My review: Feeding fussy toddlers doesn't get any better than this. This cereal is, like, totally awesome. To the max. I mean, I don't have to beg my kids to eat breakfast anymore. They just grab their bowl of magical berries, prop up the TV trays, and chow down while spazzing out to their favorite Saturday morning lineup: The Flintsones, followed by (what else?!)The Smurfs, and finishing it off with the Kid Super Power Hour with Shazam.

The particular box of Smurf-Berry Crunch I picked up offers the surprise of a Smurf toy inside -- a True Blue Smurf Award! My toddlers are trying to collect all six Smurf Award badges: 1) Most Friendly, 2) Most Helpful, 3) Most Mischievous, 4) Most Daring with Gargamel, 5) Most Loveable, and 6) Most Funny.

Yum-orama. I'm polishing off the last of the box as I type this. Gotta go to the store and stock up -- not that I'm worried the shelves will ever run out. This stuff is classic, the next Cheerios. I'll bet Smurf-Berry Crunch will still be little kids' breakfast of choice 10, 15, heck, even 25 years from now.


So, like, have you figured out CafeMom's 80s flashback joke yet? If not, you're just, like, totally bogus. April Fool's!
