    It’s all the blame of the packaging. Put it in a plain grey box and the kids won’t want it.

    I remember our school PT coach telling us it’s healthier to eat the box than eat what’s inside (it was kellogs cornflakes). He was ahead of his time. 😁

      Well, sure. They are pretty labels, and pretty full of sugar.

      Isn’t it Roald Dahl who said breakfast cereal was pencil shavings? Both ahead of their time…

        Give them an egg for breakfast instead. Draw an amusing face on it first. 🙂

    Sadly, cereal has long been a sugar bomb – it just wasn’t quite so blatant originally.

      Well, maybe the insulin-producers will be happy. :/

    Need a quick “Pick-me-up?” Head on over to the breakfast aisle.

    Chocolate for breakfast followed by a fatty sausage has my vote! (Reverse the order for dinner).

    Show me a boy child who hasn’t added sugar to Sugar Frosties and I’ll show you a pantywaist. 😉

    Type 2 maybe, Type 1 is more related to genetics

      😀 😀 Exactly. I wonder why they don’t hire you to the marketing department.

        I’m open to all well remunerated offers. Now if they just sweetened the deal…

    As someone who grew up on Cocoa Puffs and Lucky Charms, I am outraged at this!

      No! *runs to Google* ha ha! I’d forgotten. It’s really funny to read the Wikipedia page, detailing the creators and their relationships.

    I try to limit the number of pop culture things in my home, but I do have all seven Freakies toys on my bookshelf. The result of me eating way too many boxes of cereal back in 1974. And they all rest right next to my other childhood obsession, little W.C. Fritos pencil erasers. Some things are just too hard for me to part with.

    Really ? Back in my day in the 70’s and 80’s cereal was nothing but 100% sugar with a toy inside the box.

    Dippin Dots is ridiculous, unless each box contains some freeze dried ice cream, don’t market yoursrlf as such

      I wondered that! Why buy ice cream cereal if it doesn’t have it?

    Louis CK has a rant about how our bodies were really only designed for us to eat like a little bit of lettuce here and there and maybe occasionally we hunt a wild boar and get some meat but that’s it. Then God comes down and is like why are you idiots putting bacon and chocolate on everything?

    Obligatory disclaimer I don’t approve of Louis’ perversions.

      HA ha… disclaimer noted. God did tell His chosen people to avoid bacon, so there may be some truth to this idea.
