It’s that time of year again when everything we hold dear is slapped with some red and green and sold to millions of adoring fans as extra special ‘Christmas‘ something-or-other. So yeah, Christmas Crunch just showed up at our local Giant Eagle but I see it’s on Amazon as well.
Cap’n Crunch Christmas Crunch actually debuted in 1988 but seems to skip a year here and there to be reincarnated with a new box design every cycle round. I just barely remember it as a kid though I can’t recall being the biggest Cap ‘N Crunch fan to begin with. Mr. Breakfast has a good collection of the boxes if you’re curious.
Otherwise, it’s a white box with the Cap’n in Santa gear and red and green Christmassy-shaped crunch. I think it was about as overpriced as every other cereal on the shelf so go on out and grab a box- or 20, because people get as fanatical about those holiday cereals as crack and this is one of those impossible to find after the day products. If you hate it, don’t fret- that’s what eBay is for. In fact hawking some crunch on eBay may be my new business plan for 2014….
