Chocolate cereals that are designed to appeal to adults - to women, specifically - rather than to children are one of the hottest new trends in the breakfast industry. Chocolate Oat Crunch Life is the first one out of the starting gate and is already available in stores. The cereal is regular, whole grain Life cereal that has had chocolate granola pieces added to it. It is touted as being low fat, high in fiber and as a generally healthy (2.5 grams fat, 190 calories per 1-cup serving), yet indulgent, breakfast option.
After trying a box, I think I would pass on this as breakfast food.The chocolate chunks are very chocolaty, not just cocoa-flavored, because they are made with melted chocolate chips and are quite hard, much like large chunks of dense granola. The texture of the granola doesn't really work that well with the rest of the cereal, especially as Life softens so much in milk and the chunks don't. On top of that, the pieces simply taste too much like chocolate to seem appropriate for breakfast, so the overall effect is that of a bowl full of regular Life Cereal that, for some reason, you decided to throw a chopped up candy bar (perhaps a very hard Nestles Crunch) into.
There is a fairly high ratio of chocolate pieces to Life cereal, so this could be a good snack option if you're looking for a chocolate fix that will last you a bit longer than a single piece of chocolate. Otherwise, you might want to stick to regular Life and save the chocolate for later.
