      The Great Value Crunchy Honey Oats is a Walmart product that is based off of Post’s Honey Bunches of Oats. The Walmart cereal retails for one dollar and eighty-four cents while the Post cereal sells for almost two dollars and fifty cents. There’s a definite difference in price, but there’s not a definite difference in flavor, texture or overall quality. Plus, there’s more cereal in the Walmart brand compared with the Post brand, so the Walmart brand most certainly represents the better, more impressive value. The cereal though is nothing spectacular, regardless of whether I’m eating the Great Value or Post product. If

      anything, it’s really only slightly above average in terms of flavor and texture.

      There are cereal flakes that aren’t flavored with honey in this cereal. They actually don’t taste much like anything. Those flakes are not pleasant to the taste simply because they have no flavor. Then there are flakes that have a light layer of honey that coats them. Those flakes are reasonably sweet and so I feel this is a cereal that doesn’t require any extra sugar to be added. It’s still not though what I would consider to be a sweet cereal, and just for comparison purposes, it’s not as sweet ...


      • as another honey-coated cereal, namely General Mills Honey-nut Cherrios. There are also oat clusters mixed in with the flakes, and while there are certainly more flakes than oat clusters, I wouldn’t say the oat clusters are hard to come across. They represent the crunchiest part of this cereal and don’t become soggy in milk like the flakes eventually do, unless eaten quickly.

        What’s most impressive about this cereal is its very appealing price and the quantity that comes at that great price. The cereal itself is moderately satisfying, but that’s really about it. The sweetness that comes from the honey comes and goes because

        not all the cereal flakes have honey on them, so sometimes, I’ll get essentially a mouthful of nothing because of the plain flakes, but that doesn’t happen too often thankfully. The oat clusters offer more crunch than the flakes possibly could as well as a decent amount of flavor, and they’re more common than uncommon, so that’s also something the cereal has going in its favor. This cereal however is not one that I buy regularly simply because my enjoyment of this cereal is usually limited to being mildly satisfied and little more. I feel this cereal is deserving of a “6″ rating.
