About this deal

On a similar note, Honey Bun cereal is probably not gluten free either as it contains whole grain oat flour (most likely processed in a facility that also processes wheat) and is not marketed as such. Lastly, because this cereal is so white, it has no artificial colors in the ingredients list. Twinkies Cereal As you might guess, all 17 grams are added sugar. Surprisingly though, the cereal has more sugar than a serving of the original Donettes which have 15 grams of sugar per 4 donuts. So from a sugar perspective, you’re better off eating the actual donuts. Donettes Cereal Nutrition Facts Donettes Cereal is made up of over 40% sugar. With ingredients such as dextrose, sugar, and corn syrup, it’s no wonder that this is the case. Post released Honey Bun and Donettes Cereal to the market in January 2019, but it wasn’t until November 13, 2019 that Post made the announcement about Twinkies Cereal. In the press release, Post stated that Twinkies Cereal would hit grocery store shelves in late December 2019.

To date, a cereal with one of the highest concentration of sugar is Honey Bun cereal. With over 48% sugar by weight, Honey Bun cereal is not the healthiest of breakfast foods. Sugar, Water, Enriched Wheat Flour [Wheat Flour, Niacin, Iron (Ferrous Sulfate), Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid], Palm Oil, contains 2% or less: High Fructose Corn Syrup, Soybean Oil, Glycerin, Cocoa (processed with Alkali), Nonfat Dry Milk, Defatted Soy Flour, Egg Yolks, Modified Wheat Starch, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Palm Oil Shortening, Salt, Baking Soda, Agar, Dextrose, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Propionate, Natamycin And Potassium Sorbate (to retain freshness), Mono and Diglycerides, Sodium Stearate, Soy Lecithin, Guar Gum, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Aluminum Phosphate, Turmeric, Karaya Gum, Dextrin, Annatto, Xanthan Gum, Titanium Dioxide, Enzymes. Obviously, right out of the box, the cereal is crunchy. I guess if you want that soft texture, you’ll have to let it soak in some milk for a couple minutes, although, this will probably result in a soggy mess. So Much Sugar In yet another attempt to make this cereal appear as if it’s healthy, Post fortified it with lots of vitamins and minerals like zinc oxide and thiamin mononitrate.This cereal is also a GMO product as the side panel has the statement PRODUCED WITH GENETIC ENGINEERING . You’ll also find at the bottom of the side panel a note stating PRODUCED WITH GENETIC ENGINEERING. This clearly means that Honey Bun cereal is not an organic food as most of us would have probably guessed. This comes as no surprise considering the first two ingredients of the cereal are dextrose and sugar. You’ll also find corn syrup on the ingredients list as well. Twinkies Cereal Nutrition Facts The big question: what does Twinkies Cereal taste like? While many consider Twinkies to be their flagship product, it’s important for Hostess to get the taste right.

Brushing excess flour from the dough keeps the coconut oil clean, allowing it to be reused up to 3 times. That means nearly half of every spoonful of the cereal is sugar! I guess this makes sense since the first ingredient is sugar. In a press release, Adam Lisook, brand director of Hostess Breakfast, said that the brand takes delight in offering customers ways to “indulge in small moments of happiness throughout their day.” For some reason, this video clip reminds me of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Taste and AppearanceAccording to John Riggs from YouTube, Twinkies Cereal is “really, really good” when it’s eaten dry, and “surprisingly good” when it’s eaten with milk. Just like most other cereals, Post has added a bunch of vitamins and minerals to make this cereal appear as if it has some nutritional value. You got everything from ferric orthophosphate to folic acid. Forming doughnut holes by hand creates the irregular shape of a real Donette, while also minimizing scraps (which can become tough through kneading and rerolling).

So according to Josh, this means that Post did it’s due diligence to perfect the recipe for this cereal to make it taste as close to a real Twinkie as possible. But what do the consumers actually think? Of all the Hostess cereals, Twinkies surprisingly has the least amount of sugar. Each 39 gram serving contains 16 grams of sugar. That means that every spoonful of Twinkies Cereal contains 41% sugar by weight. Donettes cereal pieces look like Cheerios, but larger and covered in white powder. Fun fact: the proper name for the shape of a donut (or Cheerio for that matter) is a torus. Although cheesecake didn’t quite make it to their followers’ list, we’re pretty sure that people will love it, nonetheless. After all, it’s still a sweet, summery flavor that no dessert lover can certainly resist! Similar to the other Hostess cereals, Twinkies Cereal is also a GMO product as the side label includes PRODUCED WITH GENETIC ENGINEERING below the ingredients list.

Compared to an actual Twinkies snake cake which contains around 14.5 grams of sugar, the cereal actually has more sugar. You’ll find that people describe the taste as butterscotch, vanilla, and/or caramel, but when we reference the ingredients list, none of these ingredients can be found. Gentle kneading provides the doughnuts with a smooth skin, so they hold their shape and absorb less oil.
