Breakfast: A Warning

I love sugary cereal. I eat it every day and my kitchen looks like the cereal aisle at the grocery store. This week I bought Cap'N Crunch : Crunch Berries, a longtime favorite. I didn't notice, but the box said: Watch Shapes Turn Blue! So I poured the milk and made the discovery that the shapes don't turn blue; but the milk does. Very blue. It's totally revolting, and even worse, it makes the whole meal taste less like Can'N Crunch and more like that metallic-flavored red frosting that they always use to create decorative roses for cake-toppings. See, no blue shapes, just blue milk:

And I will also admit, embarassingly, but for the sake of all cereal lovers and interested parties everywhere, that I found out the next day that the milk wasn't the only thing that turned blue. Ahem.

There's not much cereal left in the bowl. Please tell me you didn't eat that much. That's disgusting. I wonder, though. If we were under the age of 9, would we think it was so disgusting? Or would we beg our moms to buy it for us?

Hot Babe is right. We would have really wanted this stuff as a child. You should really just but the malt-o-meal bags of cereal. They taste the same and you get more for your money. Yum!

LOL! I can only imagine your reaction to the side effects!

You know what you should do? You should email them and tell them of your horror and then they'll send you a coupon for a free box of any of their cereal! Free Capn Crunch! Who could ask for more? I got free pickles that way once...yep Gedney State Fair Hot and Spicy Pickle Spears...YUM.

I was thinking about writing them a letter to make them aware of my disappointment, but I read the side of the box and it said that if you are unsatisfied with their product then you can send the unused portion back to them for a refund, and the thought of spending three bucks to ship a half-eaten box of Crunch Berries cross-country seemed a little ridiculous.
