I’ve been over cereal flavors for quite a while. People will just not shut up about Capone though so it filled another hole in my $25 order for free shipping. My being over cereal flavors makes this a little hard to rate. It is possible it should be slightly higher, because it is a very solid cereal flavor at an unbeatable price.
Now it has been a while, but I feel like this is very comparable to Sammie or Looper. It is in the citrus realm of cereal flavors. There is a nice amount of cereal grain up front as well as some deeper berry and tart flavors. The back end rises up into potent citrus flavors of lemon and orange. It’s bitey but in a good way. I don’t notice excessive throat hit. Again, the finish is reminiscent of Looper or Sammie. Beneath it all is a milky flavor that tries to balance out the citrus but doesn’t quite make it. The focus here isn’t on the milk though. It is a nice complimentary flavor that keeps the citrus from becoming too cloying or even boring.
I think Capone is a flavor worthy of your time. I hate to say “great for the price” because while it is based on the frequent Sauce LA sales, it’s pretty great on it’s own. If you like the citrusy fruit loops or fruity pebbles style cereals you should definitely check it out.
