RememBear This: Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Hello everyone. Ryan has asked me if I’d like to write a little for GrubGrade. How can I pass up an offer like that? Two of my favorite things, food and writing! In all honesty I don’t eat out much so I’m not sure that I’ll be doing any current food reviews. I thought I might concentrate more on nostalgic brands, at least at first, and we’ll call it RememBear This. Ryan has also asked me to try and concentrate on regional items as the West coast correspondent, so I’ll try to work those in as well. For the first item in RememBear This, Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Man alive, this was like getting to eat cake before school. It was that good and that sugary.
It’s got “swirls of cinnamon and sugar on every bite!”
You know why I like these guys? At least they admit to it being a straight up sugar laden product for kids. They’re not hiding behind any veils nor are they touting any added benefits of the government mandated “enriching” they must all do because their products are lacking any nutrition or sustenance without. They’ve got a chubby baker as their pitchman, like a jolly Billy Mays but much less annoying. I think there should be more companies going this route with their marketing. Being honest and open, or I guess the buzz word for it now is “transparent.” Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s is a good example of this in recent advertising. I digress, getting back to the sweet siren song of CTC…not only do you get a bowl full of delicious, bounce off the wall, run amok like Billy from Family Circus (dotted line trail and all), coma inducing sugar shot but almost as if you’re getting rewarded for finishing your meal, you receive some of the most scrumptious “end-milk” ever to smack a kid’s lips.
Answer me this GrubGraders…what cereal produces your favorite end-milk?
Remember those TV commercials where they had the snobby adult who thought they knew why kids loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch but were always wrong? Classic. Oh nosy Mrs. Babbots, tsk, tsk. Have a look at Susan Boyle before she hit the big time and before she took on that lame excuse of a Scottish accent apparently (now Sean Connery’s is Scottish).
