TINY TOAST

31 Aug

UntitledTiny Toast.   These represent everything cool about cereal.  It’s a super-simple concept, has a fun shape, is easily recognizable, and has fruit flavor….all the hallmarks of a legendary cereal in the making.   I loved the hell out of both of these.  They are highly snackable (both in and out of a bowl of milk) and they have nice little burst of fruit flavor.   I especially dug the Blueberry.  Slightly reminded me of my beloved BooBerry cereal…which is only available during Halloween..so…..booyah.

From what I read, cereal is on the decline. Kids are eating healthier (probably not by choice) so the “kiddie” cereals we all grew up with might fade away one day.  I hope not.  The whole concept of Tiny Toast is a callback to a simpler time.  When all you needed was a bowl of cereal and a four-hour cartoon block of Tom and Jerry to be happy.

ALPHA BITS

3 Aug

UntitledHoly Smokes, this is still around!!!!!   I haven’t seen Alpha Bits in years.   I had totally forgot about it until I stumbled across it at Minyard.   Ohhhhh trusty Minyard.   Always having the right thing at the right time.

Now the flavor and shapes look and taste exactly as I remember it. Sweet with a good and solid crunch for a good little while.  All the things kids love about fun cereals.

What I didn’t remember…and still have no idea…is what in the bloody blue hell is this SUPER WHY character is on my cereal.   I mean what does he have to do with this?

He has a book on his chest as a logo?   Is this to encourage me to read?   Instead of Super Why maybe they should have called him “What’s a Book??”  because kids today are not into reading.

Still a damn fine cereal  though.   One that obviously has very little in the way of budget because everyone should know it’s still around and a classic.
