Cap’n Crunch is one of those classic childhood cereals that never gets old. Even if you’re way past the age of settling in with a bowl for some Saturday morning cartoons, digging into some of the sweet cereal still feels like a treat.
Of course, it all started with the classic, original Cap’n Crunch, but there are now a ton of variations that have been introduced over the years: Peanut Butter Crunch, Crunch Berries, Chocolatey Berry Crunch, Oops! All Berries, Sprinkled Donut Crunch and Strawberry Shortcake Crunch. Now, a brand-new flavor is set to join the line-up: Cotton Candy Cap’n Crunch.
Kids love cereal, and kids also love cotton candy, so it definitely sounds like a match made in heaven. You can expect the new flavor to hit grocery stores throughout the United States this summer. The cereal will feature pink and blue cotton candy-flavored puffs. It will look more like Crunch Berries than the original Cap’n Crunch.
Instagram account @cereallife shared a sneak peek of the cereal box, and it looks like the stuff that childhood dreams are made of:
While we’re guessing this new candy-flavored cereal is definitely not light on the sugar, and therefore not the healthiest breakfast choice, there’s no one stopping you from indulging in it as a dessert every once in a while. Whether you choose to go classic and pair it with milk, snack on it straight out of the box or use it as a topping for some ice cream or frozen yogurt, Cotton Candy Cap’n Crunch is bound to become a staple in your pantry. And if you do decide to pour yourself a bowl for your first meal of the day, no judgment!
