Ep 16 - American Breakfast Cereal Taste-Testing Showdown!


In Episode 16 of the Film and Food Podcast Chris had returning guests Clayton Waters & Charlie Bennet plus new guest Ben Vozzo to try 6 American Breakfast Cereal varieties. This idea was formed from the cereal bar at Zoe's workplace in the show Zoe's Extraordinary Playlist which we discussed on the episode. Go check that episode out to hear our reactions to each cereal plus all the movies and tv shows that were discussed!


The 6 Cereals were:


Cap'n Crunch

Cinnamon Toast Crunch

CTC Churros

Lucky Charms

Oreo O's Cereal

Pop Tarts Frosted Strawberry Cereal


Ratings:


We gave a score out of ten for each of these categories: taste, texture and x-factor. This gave each cereal a score out of 30. Each guest also then ranked their six cereals from to score to bottom. At the end we added up all the scores to give ultimate score out of 120 for each cereal plus our ultimate final rankings.
