      Very tasty chocolatey cereal

      I get a variety of free cereals at work. Great. I haven't had a payrise or bonus in 2 years despite getting promoted twice but hey, who cares, I get free cereal.

      As a result, two things happen:

      1) I try cereals that I would never normally actually buy myself and
      2) I eat loads and loads of it as it is free to try to make up for the fact that I am paid badly.

      As such, I consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to the taste of cereal, even if not so the price (although I do often check out the cereal aisles when I am out shopping to ensure I eat the most expensive ones at work first he he

      You can buy this cereal from Asda for £3.50 for a big 565g box. This price didn't jump out at me as being overly cheap or overly expensive so I would say it's your normal kind of price for a cereal.

      The cereal itself is small discs that are light brown in colour and specklt - just like little cookies!!! The cereal tastes delicious. It really it lovely and crunchy and chocolately.

      The cereal is hard enough that even after a big bowl of it (did I mention that I eat loads of this stuff?!?) it does not go soggy in the bowl. The downside of this though is that it is quite hard to eat dry on it's own as a snack.

      The milk turns a little chocolatey but nowhere near as much as something like coco pops.

      All in all though, I think this is a lovely cereal and would certainly eat it again (and if I ever get a new job, who knows, I may even buy a box!)

        A good chocolate breakfast cereal that tastes great and doesn't go soggy.

        I was out shopping with my son and asked whether he fancied something new for breakfast and straight away he saw this. Hmmm....cookies for breakfast? Sounded completely unhealthy, but what the heck...it's half-term and we all deserve a treat sometime....plus it was on special offer, so into the basket it went!

        Being a bit of a chocoholic myself, I decided to give them a try for my breakfast too (I'm usually a toast and peanut butter person) and was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a sickly artifical chocolate flavour and soggy biscuits, but these were certainly not that at all!

        The little cookies are lovely and light, don't absorb the milk too quickly, so they stay crisp and the chocolate taste is quite good, though it is still derived from artificial flavouring.

        The grains used in the recipe are wheat, maize and semolina, so they are full of natural fibre, and they are also fortified with loads of different vitamins. It's a bit like healthy sinning!

        I kind of brushed over the fact that they have 375 calories per serving...rather more than I would normally eat for breakfast, but hey...it's half term and I need to keep my energy levels up!

        Anyway, as a treat, I think these are a lovely way to start the day and I would certainly recommend them. Kids will love the chocolate flavour and it's a great way to get them to eat whole grains, milk and vitamins.

        The ingredients are as follows:

        Cereal Grains (58.2%) (Whole Grain Wheat, Maize Semolina), Sugar, Wheat Starch, Glucose Syrup, Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder (2.6%), Vegetable Oil, Brown Sugar, Flavouring: Chocolate Flavour, Salt, Raising Agent: Disodium Phosphate and Sodium Bicarbonate,Trisodium Phosphate, Cocoa Mass, Vitamins and Minerals: Vitamin C, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, Riboflavin (B2), Thiamin (B1), Folic Acid (Folacin) ,Vitamin B12, Calcium Carbonate and Iron

        Tesco are currently selling them for £2.08 per 375g box, though this week they were on special offer at my local store.

        I'm not sure I would buy them every week, but as an occasional treat, I would certainly buy them again sometime!

        No other cereal tastes like this.Little cookies you can't resist! COooOKIE *Num**num*

        Coooookie Crisp!
        I'm not sure if this is new in the UK or not,
        but Cookie Crisp is a breakfast cereal was introduced in 1977.
        it was an attempt to recreate "the great taste of chocolate chip cookies and milk''

        this cereal is shaped like mini cookies,and they taste some what like cookies,i eat them with or with out soy milk.

        In October 2009, Cookie Crisp was made available in Canada, in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, after years of being banned by Health Canada. It was banned because it promoted cookies for breakfast, which was originally thought to be an unhealthy message to send to kids.

        but i say who cares if its a bad message let kids be kids,its not like they would eat a hole box in one day ,its okay in moderation and its whole grained,Look what they did to Cookie Monster they have made him mentally and emotionally stressed out! they replaced his cookies with veggies and fruit now cookie monster has really turned into a monster he has sugar withdrawals,and is unhappy. don't take away his cookie crisp too!

        It is currently unknown if the cereal will return for the 2010 holiday season.Though some locations still carry it.


        This cereal is available in :
        United States
        Ireland
        Germany
        United Kingdom
        Austria

        I love this cereal it's one of my favorites :)

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        The higher sugar and salt than many of its competitors bring down Cookie Crisp. 7/10,

        Nestle Cookie Crisp

        Nutritional Info (30g serving- % values of a 5-10 year olds GDA):
        - Calories = 112 (6%)
        - Sugars -10.7g (13%)
        - Fat - 0.9g (1%)
        - Saturates - 0.4g (2%)
        - Salt - 0.3g (7%)

        Description - Cookie Crisp is a children's chocolate cereal, with cookie shaped bites covered in chocolate chips.

        Taste - Cookie has a delicious chocolate taste with the added chocolate chip pieces simply adding to the taste and the whole taste experience. Cookie Crisp has a great sweet taste and is the closest thing you will get to actually eating cookies for breakfast!

        Healthiness - With its high sugar content (10.7g), which is also higher than rivals Coco Pops and Nesquik, there are plenty other cereal which would be kind to your teeth for breakfast. However, of course, everything should be taken in moderation and would be perfectly ok consumed as part of a balanced diet. The low fat content and saturated fat add to the positive aspects of this cereal whilst the salt at 0.3g is higher than Coco Pops and Nesquik (another Nestle cereal). Sorry, but it just seems ridiculous adding this much salt to a young child's morning meal, and more than other cereals under the same brand targeted at the same audience like Nesquik...

        Summary: Cookie Crisp has the inevitable pull of providing a cookie-shaped chocolate cereal which will draw in the young children, but I would choose Coco Pops or Nesquik instead due to the high sugar and salt. I am not one to dictate, but there is a choice of cereals and there are plenty more which offer lower salt and sugar. 7/10.

        4/5

        This cereal has been around for a while and it isn't my natural first cereal choice however this weekend I saw it on offer for about £1 something in Asda so I decided to treat myself.

        Cookie crisp comes in a 375g box with a big wolf thing on the front and on the back in a cartoony way which is ok but nothing majorly nice looking or anything. The back is actually more cartoony and has a big cookie slogan in cookie writing. This is more appealing and it shows the cereal in a more true, but fun light.

        The actual cereal is little, each piece I would say about the same size as a 5p piece. They look like little cookies with tiny chocolate chips on them. They are pale brown with the chocolate chips on them and they are really yummy. They do really taste like little crunchy cookies, and they are really quite adorable. They are a bit too sweet really though but they are yummy.

        Something is though that they can be a bit crisp which is great, but if you do cover them in milk and leave them for too long they go a bit soggy and disintergrate slightly. I think this can be good for children so they don't hurt their mouths but I hate them when they have gone like this.

        As with all nestle cereal, this one has the green wholegrain banner which is at least one good thing! It says it has 1/2 a serving of wholegrain per bowl which is at least good to know, even though that doesn't make much sense to me. The box says you should have 3 portions of wholegrain per day, so 6 bowls of cereal...!?

        Again as with most cereals, this has loads of vitamins in it and it is heavily fortified. It has allsorts like Vit C, B1, B2, B6, B12 and other things which are good for everyone to have, especially me as a vegetarian who lacks some B vitamins.

        Cookie crisp is nice for a treat and it's nice for me but I don't think I would want my kids to have it as an every day cereal as it is a bit loaded with sugar (16.6g per 30g bowl) eek! That or I would let them have it blended with another more healthy cereal!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          a poor cereal

          Nestle cookie crisp is a cereal I tried when I was a bit younger as the thought of a cereal which looked like cookies and had chocolate chips in appealed to me however I didn't have them again after the box had gone and I wouldn't get them again now either.

          These cookies crisps are aimed at kids in an attempt to get them to eat cereal I think. They do look like little chocolate chip cookies however they don't taste anything like that.
          The actual cereal bit of the "cookies" is really dry and doesn't really have a taste to it other than a bit like a watered down chocolate taste which isn't nice. And then the chocolate chips don't even taste like real chocolate either so your just left with a cardboard tasting cereal which looks like chocolate chips which isn't really any good when your trying to eat them.

          Because the cereal is so dry as well as soon as you add milk the cereal begins to dry up, again taking in the fact these taste like cardboard, they do also sog up like cardboard and if you don't wolf these down in about a minute then your just left with a soggy mess in your bowl with a few chocolate chips left over.

          This wasn't a cereal I enjoyed at all and I wouldn't advise it to any one unless you are getting it for a kid who doesn't eat any cereal as they may like these just because it looks like chocolate chip cookies, but they really don't taste anything like them, and there really not nice at all.

            Ok for a treat but their are better cereals out there!

            In an attempt to get kids to eat cereals for their breakfast the cereal makers are constantly looking for new ideas that will not only look attractive to kids but also taste good, Cocopops were the only kids orrientated cereal for a long time but now there are many with the latest being the offering from Nestle which they call the cookie crisp.

            Although these do taste quite nice and I can see the attraction of them to kids I have a few problems with them, the first being that they are called cookie crisp but as they are designed to be eaten with milk they are actually cookie soggy by the time you get to your third spoonful.

            Worse than that though is the fact that by getting kids to eat these we are turning them away from the traditional cereals that are not only much more natural and nutritional but also a lot less expensive than all these fancy new offerings they keep bringing out.

            So although they are tasty (better without milk), and they are still better for kids than eating junk, I really feel that the main advantage of these goes firmly to the makers Nestle and not to the buying public.

            PER AVERAGE SERVING:

            0.3g saturated fat
            0.3g salt

            This is cereal that makes me happy.

            I can remember when I was growing up. I would see commercials for this cereal and I was like I want that buy me that. Too bad for me the only one that would ever get it for me was my grandma. When I was with Grandma and at the market she would always get me a box.

            I was always a chocolate lover so anything that had chocolate in it was good for me. This cereal having little chocolate chips in it and being in the shape of little cookies just made it perfect for me. As an adult I recently had this cereal again. Needless to say it has now become a regular favorite at my house. Its a sweet cookie and a cereal. How can you go wrong.

            The first time I bought this cereal and actually ate some I was pleasantly shocked to see that they were just as good as I remember them being. I let them soak in my milk for about 7 min before eating them. I wanted to make sure they were drenched in ice cold milk.

            The first bite I took still had a slight crisp taste to it. The milk had not soaked all the way through. I was in heaven. I could taste the little chips like chocolate explosions in my mouth. This is still the best cereal I have ever had. Like I said it has now made its way into my house as a regular.

            What my kids love about it the most is that they are able to eat them just like little cookies. The are so happy to have a great healthier than normal cookie.

              Nice way to start your day,

              I've always been a big fan off cookies especially chocolate chip cookies. But when this cerial came out a few years ago i couldent really get it that you could get cookies as a cerial.

              Nestle as everyone knows are a massive brand and to think of a genius idea like this one is what i think is amazing. The packaging shows the main character/villain of the advertisment. It shows in the advert the wolf desperate to steal the cookie crisp of the children and eat it. Cookie crisp claim that all there cerials with the big green banner over there packaging are all whole grain cerials, cookie crisp is on of the them as shown on the packaging.

              So what are cookie crisps?
              Cooskie crisps are small and round cookie shapes made to resemble cookies. The cookie crisps contain small chocolate chips inside to make the cerial tastier.

              The nutritional information for the product goes as following for a 30g bowl of cookie crisp with semi skimmed milk:

              Callories = 173
              Sugar = 16.6g
              Fat = 3.0g
              Saturates= 1.5g
              Salt 0.5g
              (http://www.cerealpartners.co.uk/brands/cookie-crisp.aspx)

              In my opinion cookie crisp seems to be low in fat but quite high in sugar as long as you stick to 30g you will be fine for your daily intake. But having too much might go over your daily intake in just one meal. But this is a delicious cerial with whole grain in.

                best cereal in the world!

                What I want to know is how do they make all these different cereal's with chocolate and manage to stay low in fat?? Anyway I'm not moaning I think it's a rather good invention!

                My first incounter with Nestle's cookie crisp was whan my nanan bought them for me as they were on offer, oh and my family was buying me all sorts because I was funny eating kid and hardly ate anything, so If they found something I liked it was a God send!

                Ever since then (8 year on) I've always had a box in my cupboard. These are the nicest tasting cereal your going to find, and you can have them through out the day because they are a bit like a dessert! They are crunchy, Chocolatey and very moreish! so be aware because I somethimes find myself having bowl after bowl. They are aslo loaded with Vitamins and Minerals too, so are great for kids!

                Nutrition Information;

                per 30g with 125ml semi skimmed milk

                  Disadvantages

                  Why don't you try for yourself?

                  Nestle cookie crisp for children is one of the nicest cereals ever discovered, and after a few bowls myself I know understand why they love to have a bowl every day. It's good to know they enjoy eating a cereal.

                  I thoroughly enjoy the Nestle cereals as they recently started guarentee-ing whole grain in they're Cereal range, this means that the consumer will get 2 out of 3 of they're daily servings of whole grain. Whole grain is very important as it can help with certain illnesses and gather vitamins efficiently.

                  The packaging ties in with the discontinued campaign in which a wolf/fox/dog aims to steal the bowl of cookie crisp using various equipment, and always fails to the children. The advert at the time was entertaining, but now as with many cereals they don't TV advertise as much as they used too. What a shame!
                  The Packaging itself has the wolf/dog.fox on the cover next to a bowl of cookie crisp with his spoons out and ready.

                  The taste for me is perfect, it isn't sweet nor sour and it has just the right amount of the crunchy, crispy shell. Then once inside there is a light taste of chocolate chips which isn't too over powering and beatifully executed. However if you like to leave your cereal a while for it to soak the milk in, DONT it tastes horrible and sickly.

                  Disadvantages

                  It's a brilliant wake-up call

                  Cookie crisp cereal is wonderfully delicious. I am one those people that needs an extreme sugar boost in the morning to make it throughout the day. If I do not have a sufficiently tasty cereal, I could well be tempted to never get up for my lectures.

                  This cereal is especially good as it doesn't get soggy too quickly, this means I can leave it soaked in milk for quite a few minutes, to rush around and gather the things I need for the day. And when I come back it hasn't turned into horribly moist goop, but has only just absorbed adequate milk to make it just crunchy enough.

                  Another great thing about this cereal is that when you have only the milk left, there are tiny chocolate bits. I'm not a big fan of the original taste of milk so this means it tastes sweet enough so that I actually drink it and it doesn't go to waste.
                  You can buy 375g of Cookie Crisp from Sainsbury for £1.99.

                  Disadvantages

                  A lovely if bewildering snack

                  I must confess to feeling somewhat decieved the first time I ever had a bowl of Cookie Crisps - the box and the adverts made me think that the cookies were almost full-sized cookies, which sounded lovely. Whilst they're still a lovely tasting cereal, the cookies are only about the size of a 1p piece. I still maintain that their adverts and box design are very misleading - I wonder if it was just me that felt this way?

                  That aside, the cereal itself tastes great - it tastes just like cookies, with plenty of chocolate chips. It doesn't turn the milk chocolately like I hoped, but it's not really a flaw - it just would have been nice. That said, I do enjoy drinking the leftover milk once I've finished eating, because often there are plenty of chocolate chips floating around in it. This cereal really is a match made in heaven when you think about it, considering how well milk and cookies go together.

                  Although they're fine crunchy, I prefer eating them after a minute or two, once the milk has made the cookies go soggy. They still retain a light, satisfying crunch, and a great taste. Like most cereals, they're pretty good for you, and even if you have full fat milk like I do, they're not going to make you pile on the pounds. If you do feed them to your kids, though, I recommend that you let them down gently about the cookies being miniscule rather than full-sized.

                    Try Cookie crisp it makes a change from corn flakes!

                    As soon as I saw Nestle Cookie Crisp I had to buy a box, it sounded very tasty.

                    The box says that whole grain is guaranteed which most Nestle cereals state. It is definitely aimed at kids but still appeals to me, I must be a big kid. It would attract kids mainly due to the packaging but also on the side it gives guideline daily amounts for children aged between 5-10 years. So a quick reference for parents before they buy.

                    For a 30g serving there are 113 calories and 1g of fat this includes semi-skimmed milk.

                    To start with I tried one without milk and it was very chocolatey and had a crisp sensation when you bit into it. I was very surprised that it tasted so nice on it's own without milk. I could easily eat a handful just as they are. When you add milk they don't go soggy straight away which is good and you still have the crisp effect at least for a couple of minutes anyway.

                    In Asda for example the price is £1.98 for the 375g box which is the one I buy and the box never lasts that long. They are very moorish and one of my favourite cereals. This is definitely one for all the family but may cause arguments as you will all be fighting over it! Cookie Crisp would be better in a larger size but i'm not sure if a bigger box is available.

                    very nice taste but due to the sugar amount, should only be eaten for a treat every now and again!

                    Cookie Crisp

                    When I first saw Cookie Crisp, I was in the shop with my three young children! When inthe cereal isle they immediately headed for row of a variety of chocolate cereals. My children had noticed all of these different cereals, but the one that seemed to stand out to them the most was Cookie Crisp. Standing in the middle of the top shelf, they were pointing and reaching up, but the cereal was out of their reach. They were quite persistent (like kids are). I think it was the wolf on the front grabbing their attention. Under duress I placed a box of Cookie Crisp into the trolley. My first thoughts were not too good as I always want my children to eat healthy and nutritious cereal, but then I saw the big green banner across the top of the box of cereal! This stated that wholegrain was guaranteed in the cereal and straight away, I allowed my children to buy the cereal. As well as containing wholegrain, this 'mini-cookie' cereal also contains a 'taste to remember' and the eight essential vitamins and minerals which are essential to ensure a healthy diet for young children. As well as containing these all important vitamins and minerals, Cookie Crisp contains 10% of your child's (age 5-10) guideline daily amount.

                    The taste of these magical little cookies is almost addictive. They taste like normal cookies, they look like normal cookies and finally they are normal cookies, just of a smaller size! The smaller size enables these miniature cookies to be used as a breakfast cereal. As a breakfast cereal, with milk, Cookie Crisp are a delightful treat. Once all of the cookies have been consumed, my children then find the fun in slurping up the chocolate milk left in the bowl. Cookie Crisp are healthy all round and taste really sweet, but this is due to the amount of sugar. The slight downside to Cookie Crisp is that the guideline daily amount of sugar is probably slightly over average for a breakfast cereal, so I allow my children to have small portions a few days a week. This keeps my children happy and healthy and gives them a treat to look forward to every other day.

                    Ingredients

                    Cereal Grains (58.2%) (Whole Grain Wheat, Maize Semolina), Sugar, Wheat Starch, Glucose Syrup, Fat-Reduced Cocoa Powder (2.6%), Vegetable Oil, Chocolate Flavouring, Brown Sugar, Salt , Raising Agent: Dicalcium Phosphate and Sodium Bicarbonate, Cocoa Mass, Trisodium Phosphate.
                    Vitamins and Minerals: Vitamin C, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, Riboflavin (B2), Thiamin (B1), Folic Acid (Folacin), Vitamin B12, Calcium Carbonate and Iron.

                    As you can see there are a lot of less healthy ingredients in there. Sugar, Brown Sugar, Starch, Salt etc to name but a few. In fact 30g of this cereal gives 10.7g of sugar.

                    In summing up I would say it is a highly liked cereal but not the healthiest on the market. Maybe okay for a change now and again!!!
