Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs

I had never tired Cocoa Puffs until last night. I was sampling the chocolaty cereal for dinner, of all things, after receiving a very high recommendation that I absolutely had to try it because it turns milk into sugary, chocolaty goodness once you reach the bottom of the bowl.

I've always been a huge cereal person (I love having cereal for dinner when I get a craving for something crunchy and ice cold milk- now soy- as much as I did as a child). Growing up, my favorites included Cheerios, Frosted Flakes (until my mother banned them because our pediatrician told her it contained too much sugar), Rice Krispies, and Muslix. Yes, I was indeed a child with sophisticated cereal tastes by liking Muslix, which contained a usually anti-kid combination of almonds, clusters, raisins, dates, and dried fruits.

However, I hated the raisins in there (I'll only eat raisins if they're covered in chocolate or in the form of white wine), so I would pick them out of my cereal bowl before pouring milk and would then proceed to place them back in the box. Much to my dad's amusement annoyance, when he went to pour cereal the following morning, he'd end up with nothing but a ton of raisins. :)

What were some of your favorite cereals growing up?


  1. I love Cocoa Puffs! Serioulsy the best ever! Did you like them last night?

  2. Yes, I loved them so much that I've had them now *two* nights in a row for dinner, haha. I have a feeling if I keep this up, I'm going to be sick of them real soon, but right now they're too yummy to give up!



Thank you for reading and for your comment! Have a wonderful day!
