Food Review: Millville Pumpkin Crispy O's

By Mike Thayer

'tis the season of Pumpkin Spice....

Millville Pumpkin Crispy O'sIt's in just about everything this time of year, pumpkin spice coffee, coffee creamer, pancakes, cereals, yogurt, Oreo Cookies, cream cheese, beer, a plethora of baked goods and more.

I've never really been a passenger on the pumpkin spice train, but when shopping for a few groceries the other day I passed by a display of pumpkin spice cereal and said, "What the heck, I'll give it a shot."

I picked up a box of Millville Pumpkin Crispy O's at Aldi.  Their Crispy O's are a Cheerios knock-off and I did a review of the Millville version last year and for the money, I actually prefer Millville over Cheerios.

But today is a different taste test...

It was a mistake buying a box of pumpkin flavored cereal, no matter the brand.

This stuff was overly sweet and I just couldn't get past that artificial pumpkin flavor.  I tried the cereal with milk, without milk, with milk & blueberries (NOT a good combo), it was all, UGH.  The cereal does stay crunchy though, because of the heavy sugar/pumpkin flavor coating......  When craving Crispy O's, I'll stick with the regular stuff.

Millville Pumpkin Crispy O's w blueberriesCosting me $1.99 for a 12 ounce box, I'm giving Millville Pumpkin Crispy O's just 2 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  While the price is wallet friendly, the bottom line is cereal and pumpkin is NOT a good combination and NOT worthy of a repeat buy. 

2 stars
