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 using plant fiber and tapioca flour instead of refined grains and stevia extract and monk fruit instead of granulated sugar or cane syrup.
The first major swap is using fiber-packed plant protein instead of 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 to add a touch of sweetness and help stabilize blood sugars.

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. SHOP NOW >>
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
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. SHOP NOW >>
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. SHOP NOW >>
Catalina Crunch Reviews: Honey Graham, Dark Chocolate, and Fruity Keto Cereal
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. SHOP NOW >>
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; Subscription $69 or $1.25 per bowl
6 pouch Variety Pack – One-time order $69; Subscription $55 or $1.35 per bowl
4 pouch Single Flavor or Variety Pack – One-time order $49; Subscription $39 or $1.40 per bowl
Did you know that Genetically Modified Wheat and Sugar are two 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.
Catalina Crunch sandwich cookies are made with a blend of non-GMO pea protein and prebiotic fiber from plants and contain nothing artificial (no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors). Each cookie is not only keto-friendly but also 100% plant-based. SHOP NOW >>

Catalina Crunch Review: Bottom Line
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. 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.
And while we loved the Catalina Crunch keto cookies and some of the cereal flavors, both are expensive compared to other cereal and snacking options. The price of both is more in line with a premium protein bar that you would eat for breakfast or a snack.
We would recommend Catalina Crunch keto cereal and cookies to anyone looking to reduce their sugar intake, those on a keto or low carb diet, and those looking for something sweet without artificial flavors or sweeteners. Get a coupon before you shop! SHOP NOW >>
