Review: Kimble’s Georgia grown “Ole School Corn Flake Chewy”

On a night where we had gotten together to bake homemade chocolate chips peanut butter cookies much to my delight, my Sister pulled out a dessert from her purse unlike any that I had ever seen before. While on a trip to West Virginia, she and my BRO bought me a Kimble’s Georgia grown “Ole School Corn Flake Chewy”. The name reminded me of all of the Olde English malt liquor that I grew up on, so I already knew it would be a hit.


At first glance, I thought I had this all figured out – eating it with my eyes and suspecting it to be similar to a basic Rice Krispy, the only difference being that this was made with corn flakes. As I am always excited to try a new regional delight, you can imagine my increased interest when reading that this was made with creamy peanut butter. I’ve never even had cereal and peanut butter at the same time, but peanut butter makes everything better so onto the review we go.


The nutrition states that there should be 2.5 servings in the package, but the length and width makes that seem nearly impossible; however in lifting the package, the sheer heft of the chewy was notable and I suspect it’s the density that makes splitting up the square a consideration. At first bite, I was impressed at how soft and pliable the cornflakes were. Not feeling or tasting much marshmallow, the primary flavor was sweetened peanut butter. Even being so moist, I was surprised that the cornflakes were in no way soggy.


To be fair, I can’t remember the last time I bought any dessert that didn’t have chocolate as an element but this was incredibly interesting. You could bite away layers of cornflakes and the chewy seemed to remain to be the same size as before. This was so good that I would gladly buy this if I saw this anywhere.


Seemingly simple enough, it would be quite a fun recipe to try at home, assuming one could figure out how to keep the cornflakes as crisp at these seemed to be.
