Some of you may remember that I was asking about cereal in the last forum, and my interest in getting some American brands. One of my friends went to California for a trip to get his heart completely broken. Fortunately he picked up some cereal before he got fucked over by her.
He picked me up some 'Fruit Pebbles' and 'Apple Jacks' (both aren't sold over here in Britain 'cause of a ban on a certain E number).
I gotta say, it's like eating coloured sugar. I thought they'd be pretty nice, but I can just feel my teeth rot with every spoonful. I got another friend heading out to San Fran later this year. Is there any really nice cereal you could all recommend?
Well it's nice to see our governments concern themselves with things that truly matter. Anyways, I would have to recommend both Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It's impossible to choose between the two. They are both amazing.
Nowadays I'm more of a Grape nuts/All-Bran type. But when I was younger, I used to love sugared cereals. If we were ever stuck at Grandma's house where all she had was corn flakes, I would drown them in sugar.
Ahem. My childhood favorites:
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Cinnamon Life Cereal
Cocoa Pebbles/Cocoa Krispies (almost the same thing)
Super Golden Crisp (used to be called Super Sugar Crisp)
In my adolescence I favored Frosted Mini-Wheats and Raisin Bran (eat it quickly, or it turns to mush).
Most every food from America is going to taste like a bowl of sugar to you Robot Fighter. American food is pretty much just varying forms of high fructose corn syrup. When I had two very good friends visiting for an entire summer from Northern England, they were blown away by how #1. Our food is all sugar and seems to last forever and a day before going stale and #2. Americans live up to the stereotype that we all need to lose 20 pounds, drive entirely unnecessarily large automobiles and have great teeth.
