I go in and out of cereal kicks, but it’s been a couple of years.
(It’s also been a few years since I had to really wake up and eat “breakfast,” which may account for something. If I can go straight to lunch I generally will). When I get onto a cereal I stick, I pick one type — granola, oatmeal, rice-puffed cereal — and stick with it for a while until the novelty wears off.
Cherrios and Honey Nut Cheerios are a classic brekafast cereal: It’s got that ying/yang between the crunch of the O’s and the slurp of the milk. Cute bee mascot, colorful packaging, and have you read all the health benefits cereal boxes boast of these days?
So my a.) interest in and b.) delight with my bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios this morning naturally makes me wonder: Is this what’s next?
