Some people have said that I'm an expert in the world of candy. Some people have said that I know everything about the sweet treats. Some people have even gone so far as to call me smart. Well I'm here to prove these people wrong. This one review can easily prove that I have no idea what I'm doing. Why would I put myself down like this?

It's pretty simple, I found this bag of Choco Flakes 'Milk Caramel' in a Tokyo 7-11 and I took it home, munched on a few, and I'm still not sure if this is candy or cereal. Choco Flakes are common cereal food all over the world, so that leads me to think its cereal, however I found these in the candy isle, and they're caked with a caramel coating. So you can see my dilemma, what does one do when presented with a problem like this?

I've decided to stick to my first instinct and declare that this is a candy. It's a special candied version of a popular cereal, and it tastes great without all of that healthy milk stuff. The coating is a little thick and the caramel flavour would have probably been a little nicer if it was less milky and a little more burnt in flavour, but it's not a bad treat at all.

If you happen to know for sure that it is a cereal please let me know so I can be properly put into my place.
