Catalina Crunch

Catalina Crunch brings you low carb, high fiber keto cereal, smoothies, and cookies developed by a diabetic so that he could enjoy delicious tasting sugar-free products.  They’ve done this by swapping out the bad empty carbs and sugar for healthy alternatives.  The first major swap is using fiber-packed plant protein instead of the genetically modified wheat in order to help you feel full longer and promote gut health.  The second major swap is using monk fruit and stevia instead of sugar (or in addition to) and artificial sweeteners to add a touch of sweetness.

By removing the empty carbs, artificial ingredients, and most to all sugar and replacing them with natural ingredients high in protein and fiber you are not only eating a keto cereal that is low carb, but you will also stay full longer and feel better.  Read on for our full Catalina Crunch Keto Cereal and Cookie reviews.

What We Like

  • 8 keto cereal flavors and 4 keto cookie flavors to choose from
  • Cereal: Keto, low carb, gluten-free, 0 sugar, high in fiber and plant protein, and all but Honey Graham are vegan
  • Cookies: Keto, packed with plant protein, no artificial anything (WE LOVE THESE COOKIES!)
  • Subscription (save 20%) and one-time purchase available
  • Free shipping on all orders

What We Don’t Like

  • Some cereal flavors have an after-taste
  • More expensive than sugary cereals or cookies (read why, because it’s worth paying more for quality!)

Catalina Crunch Reviews: Keto Cereal

Catalina Crunch believes in only using high-quality, all-natural ingredients because what we put into our bodies makes a difference.  They only use non-GMO plant proteins and fibers, which are gluten and grain-free and designed to keep you full longer and promote gut health, and never use artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors.  You can actually eat less Catalina Crunch compared to normal sugary cereals and feel full longer.

Catalina Crunch Keto Cereal Best Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Maple Waffle, and Cinnamon Toast

Catalina Crunch Reviews: Mint Chocolate, Maple Waffle, and Cinnamon Toast Keto Cereal

For our first Catalina Crunch keto cereal reviews, we tried 3 of the 8 flavors including the Mint Chocolate, Maple Waffle, and the Cinnamon Toast over the course of a week.  My husband and I tried all 3 flavors both with and without milk.

My husband, who is on a low-carb diet and a mint chocolate lover, preferred the Maple Waffle and Cinnamon Toast flavors to the Mint Chocolate.  This was a total surprise!  He said the Mint Chocolate had a dark chocolate flavor that made it taste “dry”.  I didn’t get that and liked the deep dark chocolatey taste.

He also liked that each serving was 2 Weight Watchers points (without milk) so he could snack on these during the day or after dinner when he wanted something sweet and not go over his daily points.  His favorite, the Cinnamon Toast, had a sugar-like coating on it that he liked and compared it to Cinnamon Toast Crunch (but without the sugar).

I preferred the Maple Waffle because I love that flavor profile (who doesn’t?).  If they could throw in bacon that would be next-level amazing!  I enjoyed the crunch and did feel full after eating only a small portion.  The other two flavors were fine, but the Mint Chocolate left a weird after-taste in my mouth that I think is from the monk fruit sweetener.  The other two left less of an after-taste for me and my husband didn’t seem to get an after-taste with any of them.

Catalina Crunch Reviews: Honey Graham, Dark Chocolate, and Fruity Keto Cereal

catalina-crunch-keto-cereal-reviews-2

For our second Catalina Crunch keto cereal reviews, we tried the Honey Graham, Dark Chocolate, and Fruity flavors.  My favorite flavor of this group was Dark Chocolate.  This flavor was more complex than I expected from a bowl of cereal and had a wonderful deep, dark chocolate taste with no aftertaste.

My husband and I were split on the Honey Graham.  He found this flavor tasty with a nice graham cracker flavor, but I thought it had a weird aftertaste.  I do tend to be more sensitive to both Stevia and monk fruit, though.

Last we tried the Fruity.  This was an interesting one, reminiscent of the fruit loop cereal we grew up eating, but slightly different.  I liked it better with milk than plain.  It was my second favorite of this group.  My husband thought this one was just ok, but he doesn’t really like the fruity flavor in cereal.  Catalina Crunch coupons >>

How much does Catalina Crunch Keto Cereal cost?

When you order your Catalina Crunch cereal you receive a 30 day supply for both one-time orders and subscriptions.  You will receive four or six 9oz pouches with each pouch about the same size as a normal cereal box.

  • 8 pouch Variety Pack – One-time order = $89
  • 8 pouch Variety Pack – Subscription order = $69 or $1.25 per bowl
  • 6 pouch Variety Pack – One-time order = $69
  • 6 pouch Variety Pack – Subscription order = $55 or $1.35 per bowl
  • 4 pouch Single Flavor or Variety Pack – One-time order = $49
  • 4 pouch Single Flavor – Subscription order = $39 or $1.40 per bowl

A Quick Lesson on the Cost of Ingredients

Did you know that Genetically Modified Wheat and Sugar are 2 of the cheapest ingredients available?   According to Catalina Crunch “wheat costs about $0.35/lb and sugar costs about $0.15/lb.” (Side note – this makes me think about how much I’m overpaying for a pound of sugar in the grocery store!)  Catalina Crunch only uses high-quality, non-GMO ingredients in their cereals which, as a result, are more expensive. For example, the Organic Pea Protein ingredient costs over $6/lb and Monk Fruit (for sweetness) costs about $175/lb.

Looks like you get what you pay for!

Catalina Crunch Reviews: Keto Cookies

For our next Catalina Crunch reviews, we purchased the Keto Cookie Variety Pack.  This sandwich cookie pack includes 1 box of Chocolate Vanilla, Mint Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Vanilla Creme.

Catalina Crunch Reviews: Chocolate Vanilla Keto Cookie

  • One of the finest Dutch cocoa powders combined with a delicious vanilla creme filling delivers a signature cookies and cream flavor.”
  • This cookie delivers on its promise of the classic cookies and cream taste you would expect from a chocolate cookie with vanilla filling.  It tastes like an Oreo, but without the gross super sweetness.

Catalina Crunch Reviews: Mint Chocolate Keto Cookie

  • Decadent chocolate cookies and refreshing mint filling come together perfectly, giving you a flavor combination that is hard to resist.”
  • These cookies taste just like Thin Mint Girlscout Cookies, but without all of the sugar!  If you love the classic chocolate and mint combination you will love these cookies.

Catalina Crunch Reviews: Peanut Butter Keto Cookie

  • Smooth peanut butter filling sandwiched between two peanut butter cookies offers a delicious combination of sweet, salty, and nutty all wrapped into one.”
  • The first thing you notice when you open the package is the sweet smell of peanut butter.  And the peanut butter flavor shines through in every bite.

Catalina Crunch Reviews: Vanilla Creme Keto Cookie

  • Crunchy vanilla cookies paired with creamy vanilla filling create a delectable vanilla flavor that will keep you coming back for more.”
  • Another winner!  This vanilla sandwich cookie has a wonderful vanilla flavor that’s not fake at all, with no aftertaste.

Catalina Crunch Review: Bottom Line

catalina-crunch-mint-keto-cookies

If you are looking for a low-carb, keto cereal made with all-natural high-quality ingredients Catalina Crunch is a tasty option.  The plant protein and fibers keep you full longer and promote gut health, monk fruit and Stevia add sweetness without the sugar, and the “extra crunchy” texture helps you eat less (see below for more details).  We love the unique flavors, like mint chocolate and maple waffle, which means that you will never get bored, but will note that some flavors we tried did leave an aftertaste.  We also like the fact that you can buy this cereal in large bags vs individual bags.  Give it a try for yourself!

The Catalina Crunch keto cookies will not disappoint!  All four flavors taste wonderful and will curb those sweet cravings without packing on the sugar.  And best of all, no aftertaste!  We recommend trying the variety pack so that you can try all of the delicious cookie flavors.  Catalina Crunch coupons >>

A Quick Lesson on Potatoes and Corn from Catalina Crunch

Potato Fiber vs. Potato:  “Potato Fiber is made by grinding up a whole potato into potato flour and removing the starch (carbs) and protein, leaving mostly insoluble fiber. Since insoluble fiber is not digestible, potato fiber is thus Keto-Friendly and Low Carb.”

Corn Fiber vs Corn:  “Catalina Crunch is Grain-Free because Corn Fiber is NOT the same thing as Corn! Corn is a Grain. Corn Fiber is not a Grain, it is a Prebiotic Fiber.”

Class dismissed 🙂

    They’ve also designed Catalina Crunch low carb cereal to be extra crunchy.  Want to know why?  They say that crunchy foods high in fiber and protein take up more room in your stomach and keep you full longer, they also take more energy to chew and therefore burn more calories, and that they are more pleasurable to eat causing your brain to tell your stomach you are full sooner so that you don’t overeat.  Very cool, right?
