Jamelle Bouie Reviews Kamara's King Crunch Cereal

Cereal Eats: Kamara’s King Crunch, Reviewed

I have no idea who Kamara is. I can hazard a few guesses from the details on the box, but I’m not interested enough to look him up. And I don’t feel any need to either; I’m not here to talk about celebrities, I’m here to talk about cereal. And this cereal is good, if unremarkable.

I say unremarkable because it’s little more than a generic-version of Post’s Honey Bunches of Oats, a classic cereal that should land on any list of best supermarket cereals. It’s a little less sweet than its brand-name equivalent, and the oat clusters are a little crunchier, but it’s essentially the same product. Which is to say, it offers a perfectly pleasant dining experience: tasty, substantive, and satisfying.

As for the box, it’s supposedly a “collector’s edition,” although I’m not sure why anyone would collect a cereal box. In any case, the cereal itself is worth eating, and if you can’t find Kamara Crunch, you can always get Honey Bunches of Oats.

Verdict: 3.5 out of 5 spoons.
