A Revelation of Experimentation

So, today at the grocery store i noticed a whole bunch of fun things in the cereal section... but looking at them i dont see breakfast at all. From cookies to cinnamon toast, to ship captains and vampires. Who can decide? Not only that, but you know the entire food world is screaming how bad kids cereals are for you. Just..... there are some days where you feel like a kid and who do you think Trix are for? I like to think of cereals like these as a nice little dessert to be enjoyed once in a while anyway... I also wanted to add some cereal into a pancake concoction soon! This brings me back to the point that if the number of cereal choices were people, the aisle would be China! But i forgot about the Fun Pack...
  • Golden Grahams
  • Frosted Cheerios
  • Cocoa Puffs
  • Lucky Charms
  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Trix
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  • and Cherrios (straight up)

Can you not see the fun?!?! Then, after reading the ingedients, i realize General Mills adds b12 into their cereals. While im not a fan of additives and things of that sort, it is hard for vegans to get adequate B12 in their diets so these will be nice (as far as a desert goes). Also, compared to ice creams, cupcakes and other typical dessert foods, the sugar content of these guys is low. Not to mention there are times where you need to feel like a kid again... which is good for mental health (something that often gets neglected in the current health scare).

So, coming up next....... the experiement of which cereal tastes best in the world of pancake. Who will win, who will be sub-par and who will flat out lose? In the words of Tobias Funke...


  1. Thanks for the comment. I appreciate a male voice haha. Good luck with the exercise situation. At first I was pretty anxious too, but I guess in time you realize life goes on whether you killed yourself on cardio machines or not ;)

    This is an awesome post-- kudos! I'd be afraid people would attack me for suggesting non-organic, non-health-foodie cereals. I really like your approach.. I love munching on cereal, and this would be a fun dessert :)

  2. <3 Arrested Development. You totally just made me want to watch all the seasons again. Nice.

    I love kid cereal, I can't buy it or I will eat it all in one sitting (not exaggerating!!)

  3. Aww I love kiddy cereal packs!
    I don't know if you remember me from the CC forum, like the "Weight Gainers..." thread and stuff, my username was Dollymixtures? You were so cool, glad to have found your blog Clay! Hope you're doing well :)

  4. When given the option of cocoa puffs or cocoa pebbles...the pebbles ALWAYS win. =]

  5. That's such a brilliant idea! Can't wait to see how the experiment turns out : )

    Thanks so much for the comment ~ I think in terms of exercising most people naturally either gravitate towards cardio or strength...I know that I'm definitely not a strength-orientated person and can barely lift anything apart from 3 kg hand weights!

    I love that picture of you eyeing up the prickly pear in your previous post...there's something Jim Carrey-esque about your expression (and I love Jim Carrey, so that's definitely a good thing!)
