The Cosmic Brownie wasn't my favorite Little Debbie snack. Whenever I had a chance to eat a Little Debbie, it was usually an Oatmeal Creme Pie or a Nutty Buddy bar. Which is to say that my expectation for this cereal was not particularly high. I mostly just hoped that it would be good enough to eat a few bites, and anything better than that would be a pleasant surprise.

I'm pleased to say that I was pleasantly surprised.

This Cosmic Brownie cereal isn't the best thing I've ever eaten, but it's pretty good! It tastes like the brownies I remember, it maintains its integrity in milk, and the milk that's left over is tasty. Despite the ridiculous conceit, it's a competent cereal, workman-like, the kind of thing you can imagine eating any time as a snack or a treat.

Verdict: 3.5 spoons out of 5.
