Who doesn’t love the Honey Monster, eh? Yeah. And Sugar Puffs are also pretty darn scrummy. Well, they’ve just launched a new flavour – Choco Puffs – and this is utterly divine. I am not a fan of Sugar Puffs if I am honest, but these are too delicious for words.
I find that Sugar Puffs are a bit too sweet and get too soggy too fast. I like my cereals crunchy, so these are not my thing. The Choco Puffs, on the other hand, are crunchy and delicious, and surprisingly not too sweet.
I am the first to admit that I have one heck of a sweet tooth. I could happily die in a bowl of chocolate. So perhaps someone with a very savoury tooth may disagree with what I am about to say. The Choco Puffs leave a faintly bitter taste on the tongue after each mouthful.
Not a nasty bitter taste, not at all. It’s that rich bitterness you get from dark chocolate. Chocolate that hasn’t been overly processed. Choco Puffs have an almost connoisseur type flavour that doesn’t overwhelm with sweetness, but rather leaves a rich and pleasant aftertaste.
Choco Puffs don’t seem to get as soggy as Sugar Puffs either. Now, this could be purely because I ate them so fast that they never stood a chance of getting all that milk into them. Or perhaps they are slightly less absorbent. I honestly couldn’t tell you.
Interestingly, though, my daughter adores Sugar Puffs but really does not like Choco Puffs. She will not touch them. She says that she “doesn’t like them and doesn’t want to have them for breakfast”. She doesn’t eat her cereals with milk so perhaps that’s why.
Result? Adults in my house love Choco Puffs but the kids do not. Weird, but true.
