Review: Kellogg’s NutriGrain Bakery Delights Cinnamon Crumb Cake & Mario Returns On The Nintendo Switch!

JFG Nation, when I was a little kid, I did not own a Nintendo Entertainment System. Instead, I went over to my friend Mike’s place often to play many video games on a variety of systems. Among Mario games, Super Mario Brothers 3 was my favorite:

The music, the gameplay, the Tanooki suit! IT WAS A CLASSIC! NOTHING could beat this game.

But then, in the mid-to-late 90’s, I borrowed my friend Dan’s N64, and played Super Mario 64:

HOOOOOMY GOD. Dude, that game KICKED. ASS. 3-D Mario?? AND you get to whirl around and toss Bowser onto spiked bombs????? My nerd senses were TINGLING!!

After that, I didn’t own any game systems in college, and to this day have only played a Nintendo Wii a couple of times, at best. The new Nintendo Switch looks pretty awesome; after this trailer came out, I was already pretty stoked. But then, THEN…I saw this:

GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY.

I feel like I’m having a slight panic attack. I need to play this game. I need to buy this game. I’m not even a gamer, but this game looks like my childhood all over again. How do I get this game into my life NOW NOW NOW???

Sorry about that. But yeah, Super Mario Odyssey: you look like a BOMB ASS GAME. Wait, and one more thing: you get to throw your hat and then jump on it???? WHAT.

What do you think, JFG Nation? Let me know in the comments below. Or, tell me what YOUR favorite Mario game from the past two decades was, and why. Let’s re-live this together.

Today’s review: Kellogg’s NutriGrain Bakery Delights Cinnamon Crumb Cake!

Kellogg’s NutriGrain Bakery Delights Cinnamon Crumb Cake were purchased the same time I got the Lemon Crumb Cake. I do love crumb cakes, with Drake’s Cakes being one of my favorite. Would a “healthy” crumb cake live up to its peers?

When I opened this Kellogg’s NutriGrain Bakery Delights Cinnamon Crumb Cake, it definitely SMELLED cinnamon-y, almost like an apple crumb cake smells.

The top of the Kellogg’s NutriGrain Bakery Delights Cinnamon Crumb Cake had a bit of streusel, but not a lot. Like my description of the Lemon Crumb Cake, the “crumb” was more of a hardened streusel-like crust on the top side of the cake square.

I bit into this Kellogg’s NutriGrain Bakery Delights Cinnamon Crumb Cake, and….I didn’t hate it. I didn’t find it as appealing as the Lemon Crumb Cake, which is sort of saying something. These weren’t bad – like the Lemon Crumb Cake, I was actually sort of surprised at how NOT-processed this tasted. That said, the flavor was just ok – good sponginess to the cake. Good cinnamon flavor, but nothing too bold. A sweet flavor overall in the cake and the crust. Hearty familiar cinnamon cake flavor. This bar was about as good as other cinnamon crumb cakes I’d ever had – nothing more, nothing less. There was no inspired butteriness to the cake, or anything bold in the flavor. Just a solid cake square.

I probably won’t buy these again, but if you do you won’t be disappointed – you just won’t be surprised. Unlike the lemon variety, I didn’t want to rush to put another square into my mouth after I finished this one. Hm.

PURCHASED AT: Safeway, Chevy Chase, DC.

FOUND AT: Display at the end of a checkout aisle.

COST: $3.99 on sale.

Sincerely,

The JFG

    Based on your lemon crumb cake review, I went out and bought a package. I haven’t opened them yet because I got noshing on some Krispy Kreme this morning. I also loved Super Mario as a kid. I haven’t played the new ones. The game I miss the most was Nintendo Frogger.

  2. Screw Mario. I want the kitchy Duck Hunt dog back!

    I think that the switch will make it IF it has enough games at launch. The mario game looks interesting, but SKYRIM!!

    Nope to the crumb cake, I have to make my morning calories count, too many carbs for too little nutrition.

    I cannot explain how horrible those taste.
