Stella, May I know what you think about the new Caramel Popcorn Crunch?

 Following last week's Fiddle-Faddle Friday, I thought I could review Cap'n Crunch's newest cereal! I wasn't kidding when I said I am just attracted to new types of cereal. Today I have the Caramel Popcorn Crunch. How could I not take this home to try! I love popcorn (& Popcorn!) and I really like regular Cap'n Crunch. I also really like how they have played up the popcorn imagery with caramel popcorn with the Cap'n and the red stripey box popcorn comes in. However that milk spilling out looks just a little too fake.
One of the things I like most about regular Cap'n Crunch cereal is how long I can keep it in the milk without the cereal getting soggy. And I think they have translated that well with the popcorn version. I should let you know I don't eat cereal in a normal way. I like to have the milk in my bowl first and then add in the cereal a bit at a time. Usually I like to add the cereal so that it just covers the surface of the milk. That way there is enough time to munch on the cereal without the entire bowl getting soggy. With this Caramel Popcorn Crunch cereal, I almost feel like a can wait a little bit before munching down. It's not as "hearty" as regular Crunch, but it will last longer in milk compared to non-Crunch cereals. I was a little disappointed with the shape of the cereal. It is just round balls, which is like the mushroom shape of popcorn. The other shape is a butterfly. It is a pretty (boring) standard shape of cereal. Before we get onto the taste of Caramel Popcorn Crunch, I want to mention that when you first (and every time thereafter) open the bag of cereal, you are immediately besieged with a strong sugary aroma. I would classify it more sugar than caramel. There isn't a caramelizing note when you smell it. However you do taste the caramel. It really is reminiscence of caramel popcorn. Cap'n Crunch cereals are probably the only types of cereals I do not eat dry. They are a too crunchy and I feel like that soak in milk removes some of the outer shell. The same could be said with the Caramel Popcorn Crunch. I also can't have a lot of this cereal. As I have it, my mouth is slowly coated with a sugar corn taste. It is more of a dessert cereal. Caramel Popcorn Crunch is a nice little snack when I'm craving something a little sweet.
Overall, I like the cereal, but I would still choose Cap'n Crunch. I could see myself growing tired of Caramel Popcorn Crunch really quickly, so I will be saving it for special occasions.
