Created by B&G Foods, the new Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cinnadust seasoning blend contains cinnamon and sugar, as you would expect, but also has vanilla, caramel, and graham notes within its aroma as well.

While you could just sprinkle it on actual Cinnamon Toast Crunch for some Inception-like flavor, it’s also recommended to put on everything from coffee and butters to ice cream, sweet potatoes, and other sweet treats.

The official Cinnamon Toast Crunch seasoning can be found at Sam’s Club locations nationwide starting in September. A 13.75-ounce container will sell for $5.48.

BJ’s Just Revealed A Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal PIZOOKIE

Cinnamon Toast Crunch was always one of those cereals that held a special place in my heart. I would enjoy the cereal in practically any fashion, whether it was eating them dry from the box or sprinkling them onto ice cream to give my soft serve a little extra texture.

For the not-so-secret society of Cinnamon Toast Crunch lovers out there, you’ll want to take a seat: BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse just launched the first in a line of new cereal-loaded Pizookies, with the first entry being a Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Pizookie.

A post shared by foodbeast (@foodbeast) on

Featuring a buttery sugar cookie that’s baked in a deep-dish pan, the cereal Pizookie is topped with vanilla bean ice cream, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, and cinnamon sugar, essentially taking the magic of CTC cereal and magnifying it tenfold.

If it’s anything like the restaurant chain’s previous Pizookie entries, you may want to bring someone to share with. But I’m not here to tell you how to eat dessert.

The limited-time item is now available at all BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse locations. Stay tuned, as new cereal pizookie flavors will begin unveiling themselves through the rest of the year.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Just Got Turned Into CHURROS

Cinnamon Toast Crunch is fusing together with churros in an Avengers style link up to save our bored palates from the typical blues of mundane breakfast cereal.

A new creation from General Mills, the boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros are a wheat and rice cereal that’s shaped like the iconic snack. There’s also hits of cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top to emulate it being sprinkled over a fresh churro to provide that extra crunch.

Boxes of this drop in grocery stores nationwide on December 17th, with a mid-size costing $3.99 and a family-sized box costing $4.99.

General Mills also has two other cereals hitting stores right now, one of which is entirely brand new. These Fruity Lucky Charms have the same marshmallows as the standard counterpart, but feature a vibrant pink corn cereal with a fruity flavor. They’ll be available at the same prices as the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros, and will start appearing on shelves on the 17th with a nationwide rollout to be completed by the end of January 2019.

On the same day the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros drop, Chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunch will also be returning back to shelves after a short hiatus. Combining the two together for chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churro cereal might be the game-changing breakfast move we need heading into the new year.

The Chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunch will be available starting December 17th, priced at $3.99 for the mid-size and $4.99 for a family-sized box.

Wienerschnitzel Debuts Breakfast Cereal Milkshakes, Kind Of Like Burger King’s

Last year, Burger King introduced a line of breakfast cereal shakes to the fast food world. These included Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Froot Loops, and Lucky Charms.

Well, it looks like Wienerschnitzel is following in Burger King’s footsteps by releasing their own line of breakfast cereal shakes.

Announced on their Facebook page, the three new flavors are: Cocoa Krispies, Trix, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

A Cinnamon Toast Crunch shake was also Burger King’s latest addition to their limited time menu last October. Wonder if the burger chain will reciprocate with their own versions of Cocoa Krispies and Trix shakes?

The three shakes will be available at participating Wienerschnitzel locations from now through April. You can get one for $2.99 with a coupon found here.

Hmm, if we had to choose, a trip to Wienerschnitzel would probably be more worthwhile for our gut. We do love our chili dogs.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Surprised DJ Khaled With His Own Limited Edition Cereal Box

If you’re familiar with DJ Khaled, you might know that he’s always wanted to see himself on a Cinnamon Toast Crunch box. So, you can imagine his excitement after his favorite cereal made his long time dream come true.

@cinnamontoastcrunch 🔑 wit @lovemysilk … almond milk 🔑

A post shared by DJ KHALED (@djkhaled) on

Khaled posted a video to Instagram showing off his new Cinnamon Toast Crunch box graphic.

The front graphic has a large chain with a We The Best Music logo and Khaled posing next to it. On the back it reads “All We Do Is Win,” with an image of his newest album, Grateful. 

This special gift recognizes Khaled’s recent Billboard Chart success as two singles — Wild Thoughts and I’m The One — have been ranked on the Billboard Top 10 for three consecutive months.

“First of all this is a dream come true. It looks like some things are about to happen. Man! They put it in a special glass frame. Wow! Cinnamon Toast Crunch, my favorite cereal, too. Look like somethin’ about to happen, stay tuned!” — DJ Kahled

This day was a long time coming. The I’m The One producer has expressed his love for the cereal and has even exchanged tweets with CTC’s twitter account. In 2016, CTC even mocked up a box graphic for him with the caption, “Is this what you had in mind, @DJ Khaled?”

This might just prove that DJ Khaled does have the keys to success. And this is probably the equivalent of a professional athlete getting on the front of a Wheaties box.

Congrats, DJ Khaled!

How Bad Do You Want These Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bites?

General Mills just announced what could possibly one of their sweetest additions since the original Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal: Bite-sized mini donuts.

In their recent announcement of new Summer 2017 products, the breakfast cereal and snack company revealed that they’ll be launching Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bites.

While probably still good with milk, these warm donut-hole like pastries are dusted with cinnamon sugar and filled with a sweet cinnamon filling and can be eaten on the go. All you have to do is pop those balls in the microwave for 30 seconds.

You can find the bites available at the frozen food aisle of your local grocery retailer in boxes of 18 pieces. The bites will presumably be around through the end of summer.

Watch Pro Eater Matt Stonie Devour 7,700 Calories Of Cinnamon Toast Crunch


The world’s most prolific and awarded professional eater, Matt Stonie, just finished a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch that totals over 7,700 calories. Stonie has eaten 200 Marshmallow Peeps in one sitting11 Pounds Of Canned Corn, a 12,000-calorie jug of protein, an entire Taco Bell Party Pack (in one minute mind you), so by comparison, a massive bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch is a Netflix and Chill type day for the “Megatoad.”

Regardless, the mountain of CT Crunch is a beautiful, mammoth thing to gawk at:
