Anyway, this morning, I tried the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios. I was underwhelmed. They tasted a little stale to me, but that could be because they're not as flavorful as their zesty cousin, Apple Cinnamon. If I were craving cinnamon Cheerios again, I'd stick with the classic. I will say, though, that the Cinnamon Burst Cheerios are a little better for you. Like they say on the box, they do have more fiber--5 g compared to 1.3 g in Apple Cinnamon. That probably also explains why they taste duller, but you can't have everything.
Not all the new Cheerios are a bust, though. When the chocolate variety came out, I did enjoy those. They reminded me of a slightly healthier, slightly more grown up version of Cocoa Puffs. They would even turn your milk a little chocolaty if you left them in there long enough.
