Cinnamon Toast Crunch made a big impact on the U.S. cereal market when it was first introduced in 1984. General Mills has released a wide range of Toast Crunch flavors over the years, some have become permanent, while others were only available for a limited run.
Not only have they introduced a number of cereal alternatives, but the Toast Crunch brand has branched out into all kinds of foodie areas, including cake mixes, cinnamon spreads, churros, and drinks. Check out the full range of products on the Cinnamon Toast Crunch website.
Here’s an accurate and up-to-date rundown of all the Toast Crunch Cereal varieties that are currently available.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
The cereal that started it all, Cinnamon Toast Crunch remains the most well-known and most consumed of the Toast Crunch range. Keeping things simple, the original consists of the brand’s signature whole grain wheat squares, that have been lightly dusted with Cinnadust. Cinnadust is the brand’s own unique dusting, which consists of sugar and real cinnamon.
Free of any artificial flavors, Cinnamon Toast Crunch has some level of nutritional value to offer. 1 cup contains 170 calories, 4g of total fat, 12g of sugar, 33g of carbohydrates, 2g of dietary fiber, and 2g of protein.
CinnaGraham Toast Crunch
One of the newest additions to the Toast Crunch range, CinnaGraham Toast Crunch introduces an entirely new cereal shape – one that’s inspired by graham crackers! Still made primarily with whole grain wheat, CinnaGraham Toast Crunch allows you to enjoy the classic U.S. cracker with a dusting of Cinnadust.
Nutrition-wise, CinnaGraham has a few things in common with the original. It also features 170 calories, 4g of total fat, 2g of dietary fiber, 12g of sugar, and 2g of protein. The main difference is that CinnaGraham Toast Crunch features 32g of carbohydrates – 1g less!
Dulce De Leche Toast Crunch
The defining flavor of Dulce De Leche Toast Crunch is cinnamon caramel, which is created using natural flavors. Caramel color is also added to change the shade of the cereal and enhance the milk. The caramel doesn’t distract too much from the classic Cinnamon Toast Crunch flavor, which compliments the caramel and creates the unique Dulce De Leche flavoring.
In a 1-cup serving of Dulce De Leche Toast Crunch, you’ll find 170 calories, 4g of fat, 33g of carbohydrates, 2g of dietary fiber, 12g of sugar, and 2g of protein.
Strawberry Toast Crunch
Strawberry Toast Crunch has been a favorite for a lot of people since its release, however, others are not too sure about its flavor. It undeniably tastes of dehydrated strawberries, but some simply don’t think it compliments the standard Toast Crunch taste.
Either way, the best part about Strawberry Toast Crunch is that it uses 100% real strawberries.
The ingredients list of Strawberry Toast Crunch includes dried strawberry puree, caramel color, and natural flavors. In a standard serving of Strawberry Toast Crunch, the calorie count is reduced to 160, while carbs sit at 29g. This cereal also features 12g of sugar, 3.5g of fat, and nearly 3g of protein.
French Toast Crunch
French Toast Crunch is made using primarily whole grain corn instead of whole grain wheat. This corn comes in the form of small, puffed-up squares, that have been flavored with Refiner’s syrup and cinnamon to perfection. These French Toast Crunch pieces contain several vitamins, including iron, zinc, and calcium.
French Toast Crunch also contains some colors, including caramel colors, turmeric extract, and annatto extract. Surprisingly, a 1 cup serving of French Toast Crunch contains only 15o calories. Inside a bowl of French Toast Crunch, you’ll also find 1.5g of fat, 32g of carbohydrates, 12g of sugars, and 2g of protein.
Chocolate Toast Crunch
Through the power of combining real cocoa and cinnamon, General Mills created Chocolate Toast Crunch – one of the few varieties that can compete with the original in terms of popularity! Featuring cocoa processed with alkali, Chocolate Toast Crunch is one of the sweetest varieties available.
Containing a high level of added sugar, you’ll find 12g of sugar in a standard 1 cup serving of these tiny toast pieces, as well as 4g of total fat, 24g of carbohydrates, and 2-3 grams of both protein and fiber.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Instant Oatmeal
Taking a slightly different approach to the classic Cinnamon Toast Crunch format, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Instant Oatmeal replicates the same great taste of the standard cereal in a delicious oatmeal format. Using a lot of the same ingredients, such as whole grain oats, sugar, and cinnamon, nonfat dry milk is also added to the mix.
The results are an appetizing competitor to other hot cereals on the market, with a healthier nutritional value than other cereals in the Cinnamon Toast range. One pouch serving contains just 140 calories, 2g of fat, 29g of carbs, 3g of dietary fiber, and 3g of protein.
Although not a toast-shaped cereal, it’s worth considering Cinnamon Toast Crunch as a slightly healthier equivalent to the likes of Strawberry Toast Crunch.
Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch
This release was originally billed to be a limited edition Cinnamon Toast Crunch. However, Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch returns to shelves every year throughout the festive period. The reason for this is due to the distinctly festive taste that the sugary cookie flavoring brings.
It has grown somewhat of a following over the past few years and is guaranteed to be unavailable by January. With 12 added sugars and 33 grams of carbohydrates, it is recommended that you eat Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch in smaller quantities than you would with other varieties of cereal.
It also contains 2g of insoluble fiber and just 2g of protein.
Blueberry Toast Crunch
Blueberry Toast Crunch, like Strawberry Toast Crunch, is made using 100% real blueberries. Instead of puree, however, this variety uses blueberry powder, which creates small and distinct little chunks in the toast-shaped cereals. This powder gives the cereal some bonus nutrients, but not an awful lot.
In terms of overall nutritional value, a 37-gram serving of Blueberry Toast Crunch would provide you with 160 calories, 4g of total fat, 29g of carbohydrates, 1.3g of dietary fiber, 12g of sugar, and 2.7g of protein. Like most Toast Crunch varieties that come with a fruit flavor, Blueberry Toast Crunch should not be considered a healthy cereal.
Apple Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Another fruit flavor, Apple Cinnamon Toast Crunch promises to contain real apples. For this product, General Mills uses dried apples to create a more authentic taste and a brighter fruit flavor than the likes of Blueberry Toast Crunch and Strawberry Toast Crunch. The results are good and go really well with the Cinnadust.
For nutrition, Apple Cinnamon Toast Crunch is similar to most other varieties in the range, with 160 calories, 4g of total fat, and 1.3g of protein in each serving.
Is Cinnamon Toast Crunch a healthy cereal?
None of the cereals in this range are particularly healthy, especially not the likes of French Toast Crunch or Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch. Every product in this line contains sugar, and none are high in fiber or protein.
Which Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal is the newest flavor?
According to the Cinnamon Toast website, the newest flavor is the CinnaGraham Toast Crunch cereal.
Toast Crunch is not a particularly healthy breakfast cereal, but it is certainly a fun one to eat. Plus, with so many varieties to try – from Apple Cinnamon Toast Crunch over Blueberry Toast Crunch to French Toast, it has to be the most diverse breakfast cereal in the U.S.
