Why did we review hot chocolate in the middle of a heat wave in Southern California? Because we’re effing loco here at Sporked, dude. Cereal-inspired hot chocolate is having a moment in the packaged food world, and Swiss Miss Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cinnamilk joining the fray seems like a no-brainer.
Of all the cereals, I think Cinnamon Toast Crunch leaves the best-tasting milk in the bottom of the bowl (hard to top Cocoa Pebbles, though). This sweet and deliciously spiced milk makes for excellent sipping after you’ve finished your bowl of cereal. Damn, actually, maybe we should rank cereal milks soon? That’s a good idea, Danny. Here’s a raise, Danny.
Swiss Miss is an iconic hot chocolate brand that holds a special place in the hearts of so many Americans. It has a delightful, condensed flavor and the tiny little dried marshmallows in the bag add a wonderful texture to the mix. Swiss Miss and Cinnamon Toast Crunch seem like a natural pairing, and cinnamon is such a lovely drink flavor. But do these two celebrated products work when mixed together? Let’s find out.

The package says you can make this hot beverage with water or milk, but why on earth would you pass up the opportunity to add milk to a cereal product? Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s natural partner is milk, not water, so I added milk. Well, we actually didn’t have milk, so I added half and half, which added an ultra-decadent flavor and creamy texture to this hot chocolate-like drink. It was almost like an eggnog of sorts.
As far as taste goes, I just love how simply spiced this is; you get a quality cinnamon flavor, and the sugariness shot dopamine straight into my brain. The marshmallows are tiny, sweet, and slightly “al dente” just like you expect from Swiss Miss. Cinnamon Toast Crunch-flavored milk just works, man. So of-freaking-course it makes a good hot chocolate. I would buy this again, no doubt. Heck, I might even spike it with a little booze this December. Holla!
