What’s the best way to start the day? Getting a prize in your cereal!

Wow! A Breakfast Prize!

Totally unexpected and delightful. It just fell out as Larry was pouring the cereal into his bowl. Do you remember HOW COOL it was to get the prize out of the cereal when you were a kid? I remember tipping the cereal boxes, trying to catch a glimpse of the toy inside, and reaching my arm all the way down the box to nab it before my brothers got it.

(And ahem, we do not eat children’s cereals around here. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is made with whole grains, people. It’s definitely an adult cereal.)

    So that was YOU!!! I always wondered why I could never find the prize…any why I once found a lee press-on nail in my coco-puffs.

    A good rule to go by is if it has a toy…its a children’s cereal. Sorry, but it is time to face the truth.

    Wow. I did not think they still did that with cereal. Yeah, eating breakfast with the siblings was always an adventure - between fighting for the prizes and playing the games on the back of the cereal boxes.

    My sister always beat me to the prizes and now that you mention it, I’m still a little pissed about that.

    I’m going to call her right now.
