Magic Spoon Peanut Butter Cereal

In case you haven’t been following, I ordered a 6-pack of Magic Cereal protein cereal because well, I love cereal and it’s the middle of winter and I’m trying to bulk up a bit! Mixed with some whole milk and the concept of a protein-rich cereal as a late-night snack is a tempting proposition!

So far I’ve tried the Cinnamon Roll and Blueberry Muffin flavors. The Cinnamon Roll was terrible and I couldn’t honestly recommend that one to anyone. The Blueberry Muffin flavor faired a bit better with a surprisingly intense blueberry flavor but still not great so I ended up mixing that one with another Golden Grahams type cereal.

This peanut butter flavor on the other hand is without a doubt the best flavor of Magic Spoon I’ve tried thus far. By itself it wasn’t fantastic, like say a Reese’s Puffs or anything but it was at least palatable and when mixed with a bit of Cocoa Krispies (or Crispy Cocoa Rice from Mom’s Best in this case) was absolutely delectable!

So a theme I’ve noticed with Magic Spoon is the cereal by itself just isn’t that great which I suspect is a tradeoff when you’re trying to cram so much protein into a rather small mass (remember most of these crunchy cereals is air).

That said, if you plan ahead a little bit and pick up a regular cereal that overlaps with your Magic Spoon cereal’s flavor and blend them together you have a very tasty, higher-than-usual protein content snack.

So in regards to this peanut butter flavor, it’s definitely peanut buttery, there is just a slight off-putting aftertaste of the protein. If you layer on a bit of non-protein chocolate cereal however that extra flavoring and sugar seems to be enough to take that protein flavor out of the equation, resulting in a genuinely tasty experience.

So, if you’re not comfortable adding extra sugar to your Magic Spoon and are on a super clean diet then this stuff just probably isn’t for you, although we all have different taste preferences so you should give one box a go at least.

If you’re trying to bulk however and don’t mind adding in a bit of a less-healthy cereal then I think this is great. Heck, you can make things a little better by mixing in whole grain versions of popular cereals from your local health food store like I did. Less guilt, happy stomach, more protein than normal. I’ll call it a win!
