These aren't the cheapest breakfast cereal by any means - but they do have offers on quite frequently. I buy them basically because they're so darn tasty. I've found Kellogg's Crunchy nut corn flakes in three different box sizes: (Asda's prices) 500g currently £2.68, 750g currently £2 (yes, that makes no sense but that's what it says) and 1kg boxes for £3. (Prices from mysupermarket.com as at 18/07/13).
The box tells me that each '30g serving' contains 121 calories, 11g sugars, 1.5g fat, 0.3g saturates, 0.3g salt. That sounds brilliant until you actually weigh out 30g into your breakfast bowl. A serving for a supermodel maybe - but not for me. I would feel seriously deprived. Quite unrealistic too, I think, to market a foodstuff with the motto 'The trouble is they taste too good' and then call 30g a serving. So the 'serving' figure is something to bear in mind, especially as a 750g box is noted to contain 25 x 30g servings. They might not last as long as you'd planned.
The ingredients in this product are maize, brown sugar, peanuts, sugar, honey, barley malt flavouring and salt. Thus, there is an allergy warning about the peanuts and barley on the box. The cereal has plenty of added vitamins: B1, B2, Niacin, B6, B12, folic acid and iron to make it more nutritious.
The cereal itself is golden flakes of corn, covered in honeyed sweetness and tiny peanut flakes. It has a delicious crunch to it too. Traditionally served with milk at breakfast time - in our house people have been known to pour out a dry bowlful and wander off to eat it in front of the afternoon film as if it were popcorn. It is very moreish.
Kellogg's have been selling Crunchy Nut Corn Flakes in the U.K since 1980 and it is one of our most popular cereal - it bears the 'By appointment to H.M The Queen' coat of arms on the box - so V.I.P's like it too.
Tasty way to start the day. Would recommend.
Mmmm I love crunchy nut! I remember the adverts were all over the place when it first came out but I was against trying it for ages because I don't like cornflakes very much as I find them boring and I had a feeling it would be pretty similar. However crunchy nut is much more delicious than I thought it would be.
Crunchy nut (used to be called crunchy nut corn flakes) is made by Kellogs so its pretty common to find it in most shops and supermarkets, its packaged in its golden yellow box with the Kelloggs logo. The price is around £3 a box, pretty standard price in line with its competitors. I find there are usually five bowls worth in each box although on the box it says there are seven servings in each but I've noticed with every cereal I tend to eat more than the recommended serving size.
Because this cereal is quite sweet I find that I prefer to eat it as supper or a evening snack rather than first thing in the morning, but I'm not much of a breakfast person really anyway.
The taste is really great for a cereal and whilst I find myself getting bored of other cereals really quickly I enjoy eating this again and again. The cereal itself is cornflakes, sweet honey and nuts and together they taste fantastic. A regular sized bowl keeps me satisfied for a couple of hours until I have a meal or go to sleep if I eat it at night time.
This sweet and nutty cereal is really tasty and one of my favourites, I'd highly recommend it.

I think that Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cornflakes are probably one of the best cereals you can buy. There is just something about them that is so very moreish and quite addictive. We always have a large box of these in our house and I enjoy eating a large bowl of them every morning before I leave for work. The little lad also enjoys them though he has a much smaller bowl than I do.
We buy the large box from Asda or Sainsbury's and they contain 750g of delicious cereal and cost approximately £2.99, though sometimes we are lucky enough to get these on special offer. These delicious flakes are very different from 'normal' Kellogg's Cornflakes - they are so much more tasty and crunchy, to start with. They are made from maize and hey have the addition of peanuts and honey and PLENTY of sugar. The combination of all of these ingredients just makes for one delicious snack at any time of the day - not just at breakfast. In fact, I can often be seen eating a bowl of these at night, just before I go to bed.
Although, as I say, they are coated in a lot of sugar, they definitely do not taste too sweet. I also like to eat these dry without milk, but at breakfast time they are great served with nice ice-cold fresh milk, straight out of the fridge. They are crispy and crunchy and melt in my mouth and they are a great start to the day and really keep me filled up until mid morning, when I tend to have a chocolate bar before my lunch.
The flakes are of a medium size and the texture is perfect. They look slightly 'glossier' than your standard Kellog's Cornflake, but I think this is due to the added coating of sugar on top. They are a pale brown in colour and jagged all around the edges. The box is bright yellow and the packaging is, I think, very eyecatching and certainly stands out on the shelf, amongst the other cereal boxes.
I really rate these delicious flakes from Kellogg's and a box stays fresh for a long time after it has been opened too, which is always an added bonus. Highly recommended.
OMG have you tried Kellogs Crunchy Nut Cornflakes recently? If you've not I bet you've forgotten how good they taste! It's one of my favourite cereals ever but I try not to buy it very often as I can't resist it and it's not the healthiest option for breakfast.
I do believe Kelloggs is the best range for this type of cereal. In my opinion I have tried supermarket own brand versions but they never quite match up to Kelloggs. The packaging on this cereal is a bright golden colour and immediately catches your eye. It is a fairly standard cardboard box that they come in, with a little flap on the top which you can use to close the box and keep the cereal dry and crisp in between uses. Inside the box the cereal is packaged in a plastic wrapper, very similar to other cereals. It is easy to open the plastic bag and pour out the required amount of cereal (which is a lot if you have my portion size!)
This cereal contains flakes of corn very similar to normal cornflakes although these are a deeper golden colour. Clinging to the flakes are brown sugar, peanuts and honey - I imagine they have been dipped in the sticky mixture. They are incredibly crunchy, in fact if you're not careful like I'm not because I eat them so fast, you can accidentally scrape the inside of your mouth on the rough edges. If they sit in a milky bowl for a bit the flakes will go soggy so if you like them crunchy you need to eat them quickly like I do! There is a nutty sweet smell when you eat them which is pleasant enough but it isn't very strong. The taste is just amazing, all sweet and nutty and so so tasty! I think they are highly addictive though so be warned!
They are quite sugary and I wouldn't recommend it as part of a daily diet. In one serving there are 180 calories and 4g of fat which is higher than most other Kelloggs cereals. A 500g box costs £2.68 in Tescos which is similar to most other supermarkets too. I don't think this is very cheap at all for a box of cereal but as a treat it's definitely worth it!
I don't eat cereal every day, but on the occasion I do, Crunchy Nut remains a firm favourite, both for myself and also for my children. They are made by the cereal God Kelloggs and they are the quality that I would expect from Kelloggs. A large Value Pack of Kelloggs Crunchy Nut that contains 750g of the flakes costs £2.98 from Tesco, which I feel is a really good price for such a quality product. They come in a large yellow box which has a picture of the flakes on the front and there is an bad inside the box which the flakes are stored in to keep them fresh. However, this bag cannot be sealed and I always think it's a shame that it can't be sealed to keep the flakes fresher for longer - although the bag can be rolled down. The box also has nutritional details on the back of the box and instructions on how to make up the cereal - although clearly this isn't rocket science!
The flakes are made from maize and then they are coated in sugar, peanuts and honey. The flakes are made by pouring them in a bowl and then adding milk over the top of them. I personally prefer not to add too much milk because I find too much milk makes them go soggy and I like to have them to have a bit of a crunch to them. I have also found that you should add them immediately after adding the milk or you'll find they go soggy also. The flakes are quite sweet but not overly sweet, but you certainly shouldn't need to add any more sugar to them and so you can eat them as they are. The taste of the nuts is not particularly obvious, but I think it's the nuts that add to the lovely texture of the flakes and give them that delicious crunch.
Overall, I really like Crunchy Nut Cornflakes and think they are a really good quality breakfast cereal. They are quite filling and so make for a good start to the day.
I always call this product Crunchy nut cornflakes just as the Dooyoo heading but actually they are called Crunchy Nut - no cornflakes!
Bright yellow/orange colour with the name Kellogg's in red and large black letters saying Crunchy Nut. There is a stripy bowl full of the flakes and the milk is spilling out and a few nuts at the bottom of the box and some honey dribbled off the wooden honey twirler.
On the back of the box is some advertising about other products by Kellogg's and a large piece of information on the ingredients, nutritional information, guidelines and Kellogg's guarantee.
Maize is the largest ingredient and then brown sugar. There are 7% peanuts and 2% of honey. Other ingredients include barley malt flavouring, salt, niacin, iron and vitamins. There is a warning that it does include Peanuts and Barley in case of allergies.
I have weighed my bowl of crunchy nut so I know what 30grams looks like, it isn't a great big bowl, and so if you are calorie counting, it is worth weighing to get the right amount! A 30 gram bowl with 125ml of semi skimmed milk is 180cals, there is 6grams of protein and 3.5grams of fat, 0.4grams of salt. The vitamins may be important to people and some are better than others, Thiamin is 29% of RDA (recommended daily allowance), Riboflavin 44%, Niacin 26%, Vitamin B629%, Folic Acid 54%, Vitamin B12 76% and Iron 17%.
It is important for people on Folic Acid tablets, so they don't take too much and a badge on the top states that they contain extra Folic acid.
You can't get too much folic acid from foods that naturally contain it. But unless your doctor tells you otherwise, do not consume more than 1,000 mcg of folic acid a day. Consuming too much folic acid can hide signs that a person is lacking vitamin B12, which can cause nerve damage.
They are suitable for vegetarians, and the best before date on my packet is March 2013, so a good shelf life.
Taste and Smell
Once you've opened the sealed packet inside the box the lovely sweet honey smell wafts up to stimulate your sense of smell. The flakes are still quite crisp even when in a bowl of milk and certainly don't need extra sugar as they are quite sweet and nutty. I personally prefer these to Cornflakes, they are full of flavour, providing you like honey and nuts.
Currently half price in Tesco a 375 gram box costs just £1, instead of £1.99. The 750gram box costs £2.49 and is better value than the 1Kg box.
Definitely. A bowl of Crunchy nut and milk and some fresh fruit on top fills me up for breakfast and is better for me than toast and marmalade. I'm too old for having children but it is good for women who want to get pregnant and need extra Folic acid.
The box can be recycled but not everywhere can recycle the inner bag yet.
Currently for £2.37 you can purchase a 500g box of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes from the Tesco website, a breakfast cereal which I have always really enjoyed eating. I have always considered this variety of cereal to be a bit of a novelty for adults much in the same way types like Coco Pops and Frosties seem to be targeted more at children.
This cereal basically is your normal cornflakes but with added honey, brown sugar and peanuts and when eaten with milk is absolutely delightful. I like to pour the milk in to the bowl and then eat them as quickly as possible as if they are left too long the flakes can become soft and are no longer as nice in my opinion. This product is marketed as irresistible and often in their advertising campaigns people are shown going to all kinds of extreme lengths to eat this giving the impression that people are almost addicted to the taste. I have to concur that the crunchiness and taste of this cereal is fantastic leading me in the past to eat two or three bowls at a time morning, noon or night really proving the claims about how much folks love this brand.
A serving of 30g with semi skimmed milk contains 180 calories and 3.5g of fat which doesn't seem too bad to me although I think the sugar content is possibly fairly high. This cereal would be a great start to your day and makes a nice change if you are getting bored with something like cornflakes or Weetabix
I love to start the day with some Crunchy Nuts and milk, and plenty of it. It sys on a 500 gram box that it should do about 16 servings. Not when I'm around. It does more like 5 servings, it's just toooo good. I used to think that eating cereal was just for breakfast times and that later on I would snack on something different like sweets, chocolate or even fruit but not any more. I feel now that Crunchy Nut makes in fact a great afternoon snack.
Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cornflakes - to give them there full name - are as you will have gathered very tasty indeed. I love I must say though most cereals and I don't think there is anything particularly special about Crunchy Nut. Yes they have a smooth texture and taste lovely but for me so do many other cereals such as Ricicles and they pop as well which I like.
Kellogg's Crunchy Nut adverts are entertaining as well and they fit I think perfectly with the brand. They are slightly crazy and don't take themselves too seriously. The latest advert features Rob Brydon as a newsreader who rushes his line just to get some Crunchy Nuts. Previous adverts have included shop staff stealing Crunchy Nuts from customers just so that they can have them.
Nuritional Information (typical value per 100g)
Energy 402 kcal
Carbohydrate 82g - won't please Mr Atkins
Fat - 5g, of which saturates 0.9g
There is also pretty much you recommended daily allowance for a fair few vitamins and minerals. Most notably Iron and Vitamin B.
Sounds to me like a fairly healthy start to the day and you can enjoy it rather than force yourself to eat it to be a bit healthier which results in less enjoyment.
Contains peanuts and barley
this cereal sucks its just too sweet for the flakes. the flakes are not that great with all that sugar. believe me i enjoy good cereal i like reeses puffs and cinnamon toast crunch if youlike these cereals just buy those. the cereal crunchy nut seemed good. it sits in my cupboard with my fruit loops and cocoa pebbles. Im not gonna eat this really S much as my cinnamon toAst. crunch id rather stick to tony the tiger frosted flakes. so in conclusion i rTe this cereal as sucky because i had to write a review about it, i never do. cinnamon toast crunch will win me over any cereal. i am an 18 year oldguy in socal who enjoys a good bowl of cereal with whole milk. i know whats up when it come to cereal and this cereal crunchy nut just doesnt cut it. I wish it did.....
Kelloggs always deliver and provide great tasting cereals! Crunchy nut is flakes of corn with brown sugar, peanuts and honey and is a lovely way to start your day. They melt in your mouth! The taste is great but I don't think you can taste the nuts enough and the flakes seem to be a bit thinner then some of the other kelloggs cereals. But besides that they are delicous!
It comes in the standard cardboard cereal box with a plastic bag on the inside which contains the flakes, be careful when opening the plastic bag as if you don't make a clean cut opening it can be a nightmare to pour the flakes out as they can go everywhere!
If you pay full price for Crunchy nut you can pay a bit too much but if you keep your eye out they often have offers in asda and it's worth stocking up.
If you are on a diet then if you choose crunchy nut it's not as healthy as special K but it still only has 121 calories for a 30g serving which i personally think isn't bad and if you are eating it in the morning you have the rest of the day to burn your calories off!
This is one of the best breakfast cereals out there. You can buy cheaper store versions but they are never as good as the real Kellogg's ones! You can usually get them on offer for around £2-3 for a large box which is great value for money.
Basically these are corn flakes but with peanut, honey and brown sugar. I really don't like honey at all but these are very mildly flavoured with it so it's not overpowering and the brown sugar mellows the taste of it. They have a lovely peanutty flavour too which goes well with the sweetness of the sugar. The flakes are very crisp and crunchy and feel fulfilling compared to some cereals which have no bite to them. My only gripe is that I have to eat them quickly after putting milk on them as I hate soggy cereal and these do go soggy if you leave them too long - as any cereal will. You could also eat these straight from the box without milk quite happily. They are quite sweet but not overly so compared to something like Frosties as they still have a nice savoury flavour and texture to them.
For those on a diet these are probably not the best choice as each serving (25g) contains 12% of your RDA of sugar. However they are fortified with vitamins so there are definately worse breakfasts you could eat!
If you like nut-flavoured foods then you have to give these a try if you haven't already.
Corn flakes have become most people's option for breakfast due to the taste, nutrition and convenience. Kellogg's is the brand that we all trust for its quality, taste and freshness of the product. My family eats Kellogg's crunchy nut cornflakes for breakfast. I often eat these delicious sweet cornflakes without milk as snacks. It is hard to resist temptation with a few spoonfuls. The packaging is good and the freshness of cornflakes is very well maintained. The only thing I worry about is the quantity of sugar in this product. Honey though added is only 2%.
I often add some raisins and nuts in cornflakes and give to my child. We can add our favourite fruit bits in the cereal bowl and make our breakfast more nutritious and enjoyable.
I buy Kellogg's cornflakes from super markets. I buy minimum 750gm packet as they don't last longer in my house. I often get tempted to buy supermarket own corn flake brands seeing their low price, but the quality of Kellogg's cornflakes overcomes any other temptations.
As this product contains peanuts it might not be suitable for people with nut allergies, and due to the sugar content it might not be suitable for people with diabetes.
What is it about Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cornflakes that makes them so addictive and moorish? Well its not that fact that with these being a breakfast cereal there is a strong possibility that its really early in the morning, when you are most likely to be sitting down to a bowl of these. Who invented breakfast anyway? Who cares at least we all know who invented Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.
Well according to Kellogs 'It's the Honey, Nuts and Corn that makes it so ludicrously tasty' and I seriously think they may be right. Open the box and what you find are lovely little crispy flakes of corn, generously coated in honey and then dusted with crunchy chopped nuts. These aren't just any old cornflakes they are Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cornflakes and they are very yummy indeed. The crunch and taste are really good and they don't go soggy as quickly as normal cornflakes.
Vegetarians will be pleased to know that these are a vegetarian friendly product, they are also both Kosher and Halal certified. Stats wise each scrummy 30g bowl of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes contains approx 177 calories, when served with 125mls semi skimmed milk.
The fat content per bowl is roughly 3g, there is a whopping 17g of sugar, ouch! Along with 0.5g of salt for the same sized serving. In a way its rather shocking to see exactly how much sugar they contain, but if you stick close to the amount of cereal in the guide here, 177 calories doesn't seem too bad for a filling breakfast.
You can buy these in a selection of pack sizes ranging from a 500g box for around £2, a 750g box at just under £3 and 1kg box at £3.40. This does not allow for in store offers and promotions so you may be able to buy them for less. There are other cheaper store own brands, which on the whole do taste good, but the Kellogs Crunchy Nut Cornflakes do seem to have the edge on flavour and crunch.
The ingredients which make up the cereal are: maize, brown sugar, molasses, barley malt flavouring, salt and glucose fructose syrup. The product contains 7% peanuts and 2% honey. Vitamins have been added to the cornflakes and these include niacin, iron, vitamin B6, riboflavin or B2, thiamin or B1, folic acid and vitamin B12.
There is also a Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Nutty variety and the taste and crunch you get from these is really good. Almonds and pecans have been added to the usual peanut base to give an extra nutty flavour. A 375g box of this super nutty variety will set you back £2.60 ish and per 40g serving served with skimmed milk they provide 226 calories per bowl. Both varieties are nice so its just a matter of choice as to which you like best.
Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cornflakes are yummy any time, all the time.
My cereal preferences are first and foremost:
*Golden Grahams (ha ha...vintage)
Anyway my partner raves about and loves crunchy nut so here is me trying the crunchy nut lane...
Resembling shiny cornflakes Crunchy Nut flakes are Cornflakes, from what I gather, coated in honey and nuts...there was a bit of a nut shortage though I believe...as there wasn't much nuttiness to be tasted on these flakes! Although the flakes look like they are glazed in honey and sprinkled with nuts i tasted none : (
Crunchy Nut cornflakes look good and are very crunchy...nice! But they're a bit too sweet for me to the extent of being sickly, the flakes did not particularly taste of honey or nuts so...
1. They were crunchy
2. They did not taste of Nut
3. They did not taste of honey
Well 1/3 isn't too bad???
Really after eating just a small bowl of Kellogg's Crunchy Nut I felt a bit sick and confused as to what all the fuss was about...Crunchy Nut are advertised as an 'Adult' cereal but it just tastes sweet, sugary and syrupy a taste sensation that I think children would much prefer to adults. Surely this cereal cannot be healthy or good for you when it tastes like crunchy Golden Syrup?!
Each 100g of Crunchy Nut provides;
82g carbohydrates (35g of which sugars)
5g fat (0.9g of which saturates) and
Ummmm....so the calorie content is not actually particularly low when compared to other brekkie cereals, when you consider a serving is recommended at 30g...and who actually measures a 30g portion of cereal? I for one just bung it in the bowl!!! So goodness knows how much sugar and how many calories I am ingesting!!!
Nevertheless there are many different faces of Crunchy Nut such as:
* Crunchy Nut Clusters Chocolate Curls
* Crunchy Nut Clusters Summer Berries
...to name two. I don't think I'll be trying them though, if the sweet, sickly taste of original Crunchy Nut is anything to go by then adding chocolate into the mix too must be revoltingly sweet!!!
There are many delicious breakfast cereals out there...I don't think Crunchy Nut is one of them....please though try it for yourself but if you don't have a sweet tooth...especially at breakfast time either give it a miss altogether, or buy a very small box first.
