Apple and Honey Cereal: Yay or Nay?

I grew up eating cereal everyday for breakfast. Long story short, I love cereal. Japan has a lack of cereal options, so when a new flavor comes out, I get a bit overly excited.  

About a week ago, I saw this beauty in the supermarket:

That's right, APPLE AND HONEY!! 

I love the Calbee brand of cereal and I love apples, so I really wanted to try this! I thought about it for a day since cereal is so expensive here. In the end, I convinced myself that I needed it! 

So how is the taste? I actually prefer the original to this flavor. The apple flavoring was very strong, and I loved that there was chunks of apple, but there was little taste of honey. The apple was almost too strong.

Oh, well!

What's your favorite cereal in Japan?

    I love granola, but because of the cost, also don't buy it often. The last one I got was Calbee's walnuts and maple syrup - yum!

    I was also thinking about buying this, because - as much as I remember - it is one without raisins. The package of the one I am eating so far got smaller (for the same price, for sure) and I am looking for an alternative now.
