"Post Dunkin’ Caramel Macchiato Cereal is brought to life with crunchy cereal pieces and caramel-swirled marshmallows, creating the deliciously indulgent taste of the layered iced coffee beverage,” announced the Post/Dunkin’ joint press release.

A cereal that tastes like a coffee beverage? What took them so long!

All they needed was some good old American ingenuity...plus a few vats of corn flour, sugar, modified cornstarch, corn syrup, dextrose, gelatin, sodium hexametaphosphate, Yellow 5, Red 40, Blue 1, Yellow 6, corn meal, canola oil, salt, coffee concentrate, natural and artificial flavor, trisodium phosphate, BHT, and a handful of vitamins and minerals. Yum!

The Mocha Latte Cereal has nearly the same ingredients. And—attention added-sugar lovers!—a 150-calorie serving of either cereal racks up about a third of a day’s limit.

“The new cereals contain very small amounts of caffeine, roughly a 10th of a cup of coffee, so all can indulge in the rich coffee-forward experience,” says the press release.

“Now you can have your coffee and eat it, too!” adds the products’ website.

That’s true...if your coffee is roughly half corn flour and half sugar plus food dyes.
