RememBear This: Frosted Flakes
I know, I know, these are of course still around and consumed often by some. But as we get a little older it’s gets harder and harder to justify a bowl full of sugar for breakfast.
There’s nothing better than hearing Tony growl “…they’re gggreat!!!” and what better way to “bring out the tiger in you.” For some reason, well their marketing really, I always felt like I was being an active/sporty kid if I ate these. I mean they were the best thing to wolf down on a Saturday morning before your soccer game (remember after the game getting orange slices, Kudos bars and CapriSuns?) They certainly gave you the fuel and energy you needed to attempt those bicycle kicks like Pele (this was WAY before trying to bend it like Beckham).
To me these were almost the perfect cereal (I do however know of some who aren’t fans), they retained their crunchiness for quite a long time and are low on the sog factor. Long enough to get me through The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show until Bobby’s World was on….either that or Garfield and Friends, it was so hard to choose….but after that was easy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, none of this TMNT nonsense.
Another thing is the end-milk is fantastic…mmmmm sugar milk. They’re also grrrrreat to mix with other cereals. They really complement any other variety well and won’t detract from them. I must say the the Gold version is no good in my book, if you haven’t tried it….don’t, there’s no use, just stick with the good old classic. I can see 50 years from now my grandkids eating these and thinking they’re retro-cool.
Honestly Tony the Tiger is the man (that doesn’t make sense because clearly he’s a tiger……whatever). I’ve got two questions for you 1) who is your favorite mascot? 2) What’s your favorite Saturday Morning Cartoon?
Did you know they were “vitamin packed”?
