I just had to through this one out there.  Cereal is a ubiquitous food in our house.  It is consumed 24 hrs a day.  It’s always a good time for cereal.  We have all kinds.  Linda is a traditionalist, sticks with the classics – Raisin Bran, Crispix, Rice Crispys maybe a little Cheerios  once in a wile.  Sarah follows her mothers lead.  Katie and I will take a walk on the wild side.  Apple Jacks, Lucky Charms even the odd Capt’n Crunch will find it’s way into our shopping cart and cereal bowl.chocospecialk02

But there has to be limits.  We don’t do Syrup coated Cinnamon Roll Krunch or “This weeks hit movie in icing and cinnamon”.  I have tasted my share of grain gone bad but I don’t think I have ever had anything worse than . . . Special K Chocolatey Delight.

One of my kids, I won’t say which one because Katie, you know who you are, brought this one home.  She had one bowl, stuffed the box in the pantry and ran off to school leaving her unsuspecting dad to gag alone in the kitchen.

Special K – not a bad cereal by itself, kind of boring but not offensive in any way.  Now take a hand full of fake chocolate chips and through em in your bowl with your K.  You go from boring to nasty faster than you can say “partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, cocoa processed with alkali, cocoa, soy lecithin, artificial flavor

You can try this yourself.  Grab your favorite regular cereal put it in a bowl, next grab a hand full of chocolate chips – you can even use the real ones, drop em in and add milk – dig in.  It’s just not right, and they all gather at the bottom of the bowl so just when you think you can’t take it anymore you dredge up a spoonful of chips with some milk and an embarrassed flake.  Nasty!  If you insist on a chocolate breakfast look no further than the timeless classic – Coco Puffs
