Serious question: Have the recipes for famous cereals changed over the years to achieve maximum crispiness?
I remember when Cookie Crisp first came out, it had a cookie-like texture. Now it’s so crispy that it’s almost jagged.
Same with Count Chocula. I remember when the marshmellows actually were soft and squishy. Now they’re almost as crisp as the cereal, which is much crispier than it used to be. I don’t even like the stuff that much any more.
The same thing has happened to Quisp. Also, I remember when the berries in Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries used to be more cookie-like in texture. The last time I tried this cereal, the berries were – you guessed it – crispy! Personally, I liked things the old way better.
Any info on this?
