Making decisions in the cereal isle is tough. On one hand, you could satiate your sweet tooth with a sugary sweet or chocolate based cereal, which surely isn't the healthiest choice. Or, you could find a multigrain or bran cereal, though these are sometimes plain tasting and a little less appetizing. 

It's just like the classic Goldilocks fairy tale. Full chocolate cereals; too sweet. Full bran cereals; too plain. Kellogg’s® Special K® Dipped Chocolatey Almond...jussst right!!

This cereal combines multigrain flakes dipped in a chocolatey shell with cocoa-dusted flakes and sliced almonds. In addition to satisfying your sweet cravings, the cereal is made with whole grains and is a great source of fiber, antioxidants, and Vitamins A, C, and E.

According to Cindy Huntington, the Brand Director at Kellogg Company, the Dipped Chocolatey Almond flavor is "a deliciously unique, chocolatey experience...easily enjoyed during breakfast or any time of day."

It sure sounds delicious, but I wanted to taste it myself to see if it lived up to expectations. 

My first impression was that it looked very appetizing. The texture of the flakes look light and crispy similar to other Special K® cereals, but they also have a deeper golden brown color from the cocoa dusting.

The Verdict:

As you can see from the photo, there were less chocolate-dipped flakes than I was expecting, HOWEVER, the flavor was still the perfect amount of chocolatey-ness for me. The almonds provide a nice crunch and heartiness, and I could see this easily becoming a favorite flavor of choice for many.

Altogether, the blend of the chocolate-dipped flakes, cocoa-dusted flakes, and almonds is delicious. Every bite is interesting and flavorful, and it checks all my boxes for being creamy, crunchy, and wholesome. 

If you too want to try Special K®'s Dipped Chocolatey Almond cereal, it's is now available at retailers nationwide for a suggested price of $3.99 for a 13.1-ounce box and $4.99 for a 19.2-ounce box. Definitely give this one a try!!
