Based on the title of this post I am sure you thought I was going to discuss the oil spill, immigration laws in Arizona or the war in the Middle East. But that's not what's on my mind today. Nope today I am going to discuss cereal - namely kid's cereal. I love it - so much in fact that we always have a nice variety in our pantry (it helps that I have a walk in pantry and can dedicate a nice size shelf to breakfast food). Currently we have the following in stock at our house - Apple Jacks, Honey Bunches of Oats, Honey Nut Cheerios, Honeycombs and my all time favorite:
Yes I love Fruity Pebbles. I have been known to eat a bowl (or two but who's counting) for dessert (Chatty even requested a bowl for dessert too on occasion). Actually I tend to eat it more for dessert or a snack than breakfast - weird I know. Needless to say I was super excited when I saw Fruity Pebbles were $1 a box at the grocery store last Saturday. I picked up two boxes and seriously debated buying up to the limit of 4, but refrained (although the sale goes through today so I still have time..). I seriously love kids cereal - I haven't met many I don't like. My other all time favorites besides Fruity Pebbles are Apple Jacks, Lucky Charms, Golden Grahams, Crackling Oat Bran (OK not really a kid cereal), Captain Crunch, Frosted Flakes ... and the list goes on and on. One thing I don't like - generic store brand cereal (I know name brand cereal isn't cheap so I wait until it is on sale and/or I have a coupon)! Seriously if it isn't Kellogg's, Post, General Mills, Quaker, etc. it isn't going in my grocery cart. I am a cereal snob!
What cereals do y'all like? Am I the only 30 something mom who eats the cereal she buys for her kids?
