Candy Cereal. Nope, never heard of such a thing before.

Kids LOVE LOVE LOVE sour stuff; this will be very popular. Though I imagine the milk will be kinda gross.


#4

Sweet, yes. But sour cereal?

#6

This is a much healthier alternative. Skip the candy, have cookies for breakfast.

Pure sugar!

Pure! No grain, dried fruit, or other adulterants.

Eh, in the end I expect it will be barely distinguishable from any other colored cornmeal product.

December 26? Once again, Walmart on the front lines of the war on Christmas.

Sour + milk, a classic combination.

My sister inlaw would skip the cereal, and let her kids eat oreos for breakfast, arguing that they had the same nutritional value (0) :frowning:

I have a co-worker who was addicted to Sour Patch Kids, until she ate so much that she chundered in technicolor. She has not touched one since.


#15

Chundered?

(rushes to google)

Oh, projectile vomiting. Nice! I learned a new word today, thanks.

We have a 2 pound bag in our cupboard at home. Somehow I’ve managed to only eat 2 at a time. Maybe it’s the cheesecake in the fridge helping me control my SPK cravings…

That’s not milk pictured on the box, it’s Mountain Dew White. :open_mouth:

I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover, yeah

(Now you know what we are taking cover from)

And now I learned the REAL lyrics of one of my favorite songs from the 80’s. I always misheard that as “plundered.”

Well, I mean, that’s not exactly true, but it’s damn near true-enough.
