So many tasty things in one bowl!

While many sugary breakfast cereals like to branch out with a whole bunch of spinoffs, sometimes you don't really want to mess with success. That seems to be the case with Cinnamon Toast Crunch over the years. Sure, French Toast Crunch occasionally surfaces, but for the most part General Mills has a formula and they stick to it. It's certainly not like Pebbles, where there are both Fruity and Cocoa varieties that share equal billing.

Which is what makes the release of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Chocolate Churros such a big deal. First spotted in September but supposedly on various store shelves now (or at least very soon), this new variation on a classic combines the delightful cinnamon taste of churros with an extra layer of chocolate decadence. It's like getting one of those Disney churros, except with chocolate instead of toffee. Still sounds pretty good, honestly. 

If something about this particular edition of Cinnamon Toast Crunch spinoff feels familiar, you're not imagining things. 2018 saw the brief existence of both Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros and Chocolate Toast Crunch, though this would seem to be the first time that those two great tastes were made available in a single box of goodness. 

According to @CandyHunting, you'll find a listing for Cinnamon Toast Crunch Chocolate Churros up on Walmart's website, but it sounds like it might not be ready for sale just yet. Still, this is the kind of breakfast that's worth waiting for if it comes to that. 

Is this the kind of holiday edition cereal we're used to seeing this time of year? Certainly not, but that just means the good times can roll on into 2021 if you happen to score a few boxes of this stuff. At the very least, it's probably a lot easier than making churros, sprinkling on some Cinnadust, and then dipping everything in chocolate.
