What Does Cream of Wheat Taste Like?
Somehow, cream of wheat is both bland and distinctive—you never forget the taste. That's usually a good thing as cream of wheat has lifelong devotees.

Cream of Wheat Texture
The texture is the best part of it. Like the name suggests, it's thick and creamy, even when it's made with water. Of course, vegan milk will make it even richer.
There's another side to this cereal. It's also a little grainy with soft wheat granules that you can almost chew, though they're too small to do so. This characteristic of cream of wheat is generally considered pleasant as it gives it a full-bodied texture.
