I just know there’s going to a mad cereal rush at the Supercenter after all five of you read this post. I have discovered a new cereal that may just compete with my Strawberry-Vanilla Wheat Square Extraodinaire. Actually, I was informed this morning at a children’s ministry meeting that Mandy has already climbed the mountain of surreal cereal discovery and planted her flag there. We shared a few moments of mutual praise for the cereal this a.m. when we both realized that we have fallen in love with it.

cerealI know, I know. “Say no more,” you’re thinking. “Tell us, for the love of spoons, what this wonderful morning taste sensation is!!” 

Please be patient. I too was walking in darkness for many a morning. A few more seconds of tastelessness can’t hurt you. Go ahead, eat your soggy Captain Crunch. It will be the last time that a bowl of those yellow pillows satisfies your senses.

Drumroll, please…

Kellogg’s Special K Fruit & Yogurt. 

Yea, I realize that the name is dull. Almost unappetizing. But you’ll have to forgive Kellogg’s again on this one. (They seem to have a knack for giving their best cereals weak names. Perhaps they do so to make the moment of discovery all the more sublime.)

Carolyn must actually be given some credit for making my mornings (and evenings) so wonderfully enlightening. She was the one who picked it up at Wal-Mart the other day. 

There’s a large banner on the bottom of the box that proclaims “Lose 6 lbs in 2 weeks.” I don’t know if she was sending me a message or not. One caveat, the weight thing will not work. The cereal is so good that you’ll find yourself, like me, devouring three bowlfuls in the evening when it’s “fend for yourself night” around the house. I really think I could eat this cereal for every meal. 

Then I find myself grabbing handfuls of it for a snack throughout the day. How I wish we had a pipe into a pantry from the Kellogg’s factory. I could just pull a lever and have Kellogg’s Special K Fruit & Yogurt funneling into my bowl without worry of running out.

Hmmm. All this typing has made me hungry. Off to get a spoon and a bowl.

On this day...
