It's time for a roundup of some of the latest cereals hitting the shelves! I will note that NYC is sometimes a bit lacking on its supermarket cereal selections, meaning I'm sure I'm missing out on tons of new and exciting cereals. So if there's a new cereal you are particularly diggin', let me know!
Hershey's Cookies n Crème
Unlike other cereals, nearly every variation of Chex is good, and this version is no exception. I love when a cereal gives some attention to vanilla, a flavor that usually takes the backseat. Much like Chocolate Chex, there is a very pleasant coating that reminds one of Puppy Chow or some other Chex Mix-esque treat. It gives the cereal decadence, if you will, without being too sugary. This one really shines in milk, swirling with shiny sweet vanilla rivers in your bowl. Another winner for Chex.

Nature Valley Protein Crunchy Granola
Ah, Nature Valley bars. The font alone conjures fond memories of middle school. This cereal pays homage to one of the Nature Valley Bar's most telling traits: the fact that it crumbles into a million pieces if you even look at it. But contrary to the rage one feels when encountering the product is in bar form, it's perfect in granola form. In fact, it's almost as if Nature Valley bars were supposed to be cereal all along. I tend to stay away from talking about granola in this column because that's just one can of worms I'm not ready to open. But I'm making an exception because of the novelty factor. This granola is a trip down memory lane—and reminded me how much I loved Nature Valley bars. This cereal is absolutely delicious. That specific, familiar naturevalleyflavor is in there, and it's darn good. The dark chocolate doesn't hurt either. This is a dangerous little bag.
