Gorilla Munch vs. Corn Pops


Nowadays when you're out grocery shopping and walk past the 
cereal aisle, you can't help but notice an ever increasing display of
 healthy cereals determined to rival their well-known competitors


Envirokidz Gluten Free Gorilla Munch Cereal by Nature's Path looks like Kellogg's 
Corn Pops, but does it taste like Corn Pops? That's what we're about to find out!


Ingredients: Organic corn meal, granulated organic sugar cane juice, sea salt


Basically little puffs of corn, and some sugar


Now let's compare Gorilla Munch to Corn Pops...


Ingredients: Corn meal, sugar, corn bran, corn syrup, 
fancy molasses, salt, oat flour, baking soda, colour, bht


The added food colouring in Corn Pops clearly 
explains the cereal's darker yellow/orange hue


So who better to do this Cereal Taste Test than Mr. Corn Puff
lover himself, and 24-year-old birthday boy, my shirtless brother!


Review: "Mmm wow that's definitely similar to Corn Pops!
 There isn't much of a difference. Gorilla Munch is a bit sweeter 
and also crunchier. Where was this stuff when we were kids!

Gorilla Munch Cereal gets an A+

Love Gorilla Munch. It's one of my favourite cereals and I agree on it being super crunchy - one of the best parts of it!

Happy Birthday to your brother!

I've been wanting to try those and the leapin lemurs cereal..Only problem is, I usually snack on cereal that tastes extra sweet and delicious. :/

I love Gorilla Munch! I think I only had Corn Pops once when I was very young and on holiday...it was the only variety box left in a pack that no-one would eat, and I don't think I was too keen...

I totally grew up on Corn Pops, but I LOVE Gorilla Munch!

I've never been able to try Gorilla Munch because of that darn "May contain nuts" label! :P

I wasn't a fan of Leapin Leamurs (it was tasteless agony trying to use up the box... and cereal should *never* be agony!) so I never dared try Gorilla Munch. But with such a glowing review, I might have to!

I am so tired of fake ingredients in cereal. I just recently tried Cascadian Farms' honey nut cereal and I love that it actually tastes like honey!
