I remember the fateful day when I saw my first Kix Commercial with its slogan "Kid Tested, Mother Approved." In my ten-year-old mind, I'd finally found the loophole in the cruel system of parental cereal control. Somehow, my mom actually obeyed this mantra. Kix occasionally landed in our cabinets, a brightly colored beacon in a sea of white and brown boxes. Recently, I bought a box to see if they were still as great as I remembered.
