Cereal Eats: 3 Cereals from Singapore

"You do realize that people in Singapore commonly eat rice cakes with preserved radish for breakfast...?" came Max's skeptical query. Shhh, please, Max, let me enjoy the fantasy that people around the world are enjoying cereals of unknown shapes, colors and flavors just waiting for me to discover them. More

Cereal Eats: Chocolate Lucky Charms

The combination of crunchy, tasty little chocolate cereal pieces and those beloved Lucky Charms marshmallows make for a cereal that would have altered my childhood universe. Forget cake and pie and ice cream—this is all the dessert I need. More

Cereal Eats: Eating Cereal In (Apple) Season

There is a very small but important group of apple cereals out there. I guess we should get right to the point and say that we have Apple Jacks to thank for bringing this strange cereal flavor into the mainstream. I mean, if you think about it, there are plenty of other assorted fruit flavors of cereal (Fruity Pebbles, Froot Loops, Trix, etc) but rarely has one single fruit flavor been celebrated in cereal form like the classic apple.

Thanks to Robyn, for Christmas I got the soon-to-be-most-vogue accessory: a spurtle. Yes, it's basically just a wooden wand (fine, a stick) but it's the official stirring device, particularly in the UK.

Cereals from the Super Hero Food Index

When they are not slaying dragons or saving distressed maidens, superheros keep busy working on cereal endorsements. Batman, Spiderman, and the Hulk have all been tied to sugar-coated flakes or O's. Many of them have even forayed into Pop-Tarts. Gotta pay the cape and skin-tight suit dry cleaning bills somehow.
