Scott and I both love cereal. If we have a late lunch, or have a big lunch we will often grab a bowl of cereal for dinner. When I grocery shop I make sure to buy cereal when it is on sale, and when I have a coupon. I refuse to pay more than $2 for a box of cereal. That may sound really cheap, but when it is on sale AND I use a coupon I can get it often times for around one dollar. And when these cereal sales go on, I often stock up. Our pantry can often be found with twelve boxes of unopened cereal on the top shelf. Somehow I think having this type of cereal variety makes Scott happy. :)
I think most cereal can be put in one of two categories: Adult or child. Anything with Special K on the label is adult, as is anything by the Quaker brand. If there is a cartoon on the front of the box, then it is probably child cereal.
For the most part, I stick to the adult cereal. But every once in awhile I will stray away from my responsible adult cereal and indulge in a bowl of my all-time favorite cereal: Fruity Pebbles. This multi-colored sweetened rice cereal is so tasty. I remember when my mom would buy it for us as kids. I have always loved this cereal.
When I was in college my swim coach would supply breakfast to us during swim meets and training trips. She had a rule about cereal. She said that if more than half of the carbohydrates are listed as sugar, then it was off-limits.
I remember being thankful that Fruity Pebbles made the cut. And I was also pleased to see a Fruity Pebbles/ Coco Pebbles coupon this past Sunday in the paper.
Cereal, I love you!
