Once I was home alone and decided to play League of Legends. I was hungry in the middle of the game so quickly I made a bowl of cereal. Then my dad came home. He did not like me playing video games and he also did not like me eating cereal at lunch time. So I ran and covered the bowl of cereal with a paper towel. He came in and said he bought some nut bars that I could eat when I was hungry so that I wouldn't eat unhealthy stuff.
And so, I had to juggle playing League, eating cereal, and talking non-suspiciously to my dad. The cereal became soggy and I lost the game.
I am currently eating cereal.
It may just be nostalgia, but does anyone else miss the proof of purchase offers that cereals used to offer back in the 80’s and 90’s. Prizes offered nowadays (if they’re offered at all) are pretty lame compared to the toys (frisbee, super ball, silly putty), action figures, and collectible bowls/glasses that were once offered for the low, low price of a few proofs of purchase.
ive already read somewhere that the extra vitamin E comes from a vitamin supplement added to the cereal, and not the cranberries themselves, which are a mediocre source of vitamin E
but ive been buying the cranberries one since its pretty good, and recently saw they stopped stocking it. so i bought regular raisin bran and some cranberries and made my own (using real dried cranberries tastes way different). thats when i realized the bran in the cranberries one seems way sweeter and less branny.
What a great idea and awesome cereal. Post Bite-sized Bran Shredded Wheat is my cereal staple and I'm a fan of dark chocolate. I desire as low sugar as possible in my breakfast so I'm on two cereals but this one has around 5g of sugar per cup which is nice. No extra garbage ingredients.
Taste wise it is the right sweetness for me, others may want it sweeter. You do get a good amount of DC in each bite as if its fully loaded. It doesn't absorb milk as much as the regular one. Milk doesn't turn chocolate brown. I can still easily open the bag from the middle (other cereal companies have bags I can't open by hand).
Only minor downside is there is less per box (480g) and the bag seems half full. Next I would like a peanut butter shredded wheat and/or a chocolate PB version.
I hope this one sticks around and catches on. It doesn't say limited time! If I catch wind that its about to be discontinued I'm stocking up on this gem.
Those old Sugar Crisp Commercials - which were later on, banned - had the cartoon character: Sugar Bear. If one was paying attention, his voice was an imitation of Bing Crosby. The commercials were great, but today, their emphasis on sugar, and cartoon characters, would strike most parents as a horror.
They had a TV where the cartoons were just vehicles to sell products or cereal. Sugar Bear appeared on the Llnus Lionhearted Saturday Morning Cartoon Show - a show essentially made to sell cereal.
