Remember some of those great cereals we had in the '70's? Count Chocula, Boo Berry and of course the legendary Cap'n Crunch were (and are) soooooo good!
Didn't you love to wake up on a saturday morning, put on, "The Wacky Races" and cozy up to a giant bowl of Count Chocula?? Oh yeah! I didn't!! I wasn't allowed to have sugar cereals. I tried to explain that Boo Berry is good for you. I mean, it's made out of blueberries. Duh!
I was so jealous of my friends. It seemed that the whole world was enjoying a bowl of Cap'n Crunch while I suffered at home being "healthy". Guess what cereal I got to eat? Think gravel, think Grape Nuts. Waw, waw, waw.
For those of you who haven't enjoyed this cereal enigma, let me explain. First of all, their use of the word, "grape" is baffling. What does a box of rocks, ticks and sticks (sorry, fiber) have to do with grapes? I never understood that one. Look how appetizing...
Mmmmmmmm. My colon hurts just looking at it.
Guess what I got to have with it?! You guessed it! Skim milk! Yay!!!! Colored water!!!
Every so often I would be able to get a treat. That would be Rice Crispies without sugar of course. Whatever. I'm over it. Who cares anyway. It's in the past. What's done is done. I won't dwell on it.
Now, I appreciate that my mom wanted me to be healthy and eat right; but when you're a kid you don't care about that s&*%. You just want your sugar fix. I would have injected it into my veins if I could. Cap'n Crunch is the best of them all! Without the crunch berries though. I like the pure, uncut regular Cap'n. Everyone has an opinion on this one. What are you? A crunch berry or plain?
