If you’ve been curious about the TikTok trending cereal cup sold at Amazon and Walmart, you’re not alone. The viral sensation piqued our curiosity, too. Cereal can be a nice breakfast option, but it’s not always practical to eat on the go. That’s why TikTokers all over are saying a cereal cup like the CrunchCup can be a game-changer for cereal-lovers. With a separate chamber for milk and cereal, the cup promises a mess-free way to enjoy cereal on the go. Currently $30 on Amazon, Walmart has them in stock at $23 – $24 (depending on color), making it a pretty good deal if you’ve wanted to purchase one.
But how does the cereal cup work, and is it actually worth it? Here’s everything to know about the CrunchCup taking over our feeds.

“I bought this thing after seeing it on social media… Love to eat cereal in bed with this. No spills. Perfect control of milk flow.” — Amazon reviewer.
Additionally, it can be used for outdoor activities like camping or hiking, where carrying a bowl around may not be practical. If you have kids, this could be an easy way to feed them breakfast on the way to school or minimize the messes they make at home.

Consider how often you’d use a Cereal Cup to decide if it’s worth the cost.
The cereal cup retails for just under $30, but recently we’ve seen it go on sale for $19.99. When I really think about it, I compare it to a Stanley Tumbler. It’s something that you might not necessarily need for every day. But it’s definitely a different cereal experience. Several CrunchCup fans argue that it’s a clever and convenient way to enjoy cereal while commuting or out and about.
In the spirit of de-influencing and really thinking about what we spend our money on, let’s take a closer look at the CrunchCup. I can’t tell you whether or not it’s worth it for your lifestyle, but I can help you decide before you shop.
There are a few questions I like to ask myself before buying something that might be helpful for you too:
- How often would I really use this? Try dividing the price by the number of times you anticipate using it to get the cost per use. A cost per use in the pennies is usually worth it.
- Do I have the cabinet space for this?
- Is there something else that would be a better use of my money than this? Consider whether or not you’re saving for larger expenses or have bills coming up soon.
Lastly, I find it helpful to put things in my cart or on my wish list and wait a week. If at the end of the week, I still feel the same gusto for the product, then I get it. If I find I forgot about the product altogether, then I pass.
