On Cereal? Kids got it bad today.
When I was young, sugary cereal was authentic. Today? Knock offs.
What's a kid to do, when parents are struggling? Look at the other cart- they got Fruit Loops, while the poor kid has Tasty-O's. WTF? Big ass plastic bag, can't hide it in a cart. Too big.
Plus Cheaper ingredients, usually chemicals in place of food.
Instead of Sugar Smacks, they got golden puffs. I guess next to Capn Crunch will be Private Crunch. Next to the Alpha Bits Cereal is A thru Z cereal.
Even the boxes are cheap. A kid knows the deal when they turn it to the back. Capn Crunch would have a maze...help him find the treasure. Oh, what a treat at the breakfast table eating Capn Crunch while following the maze.
But not wit A thru Z cereal...that maze on the back cover looks like 1/2 an intestine. U see the beginning & end of the maze....all before getting to the checkout line.
Instead of Fruity Pebbles...Fruity crisp rice. Damn...they don't even try to hide the fact they're knockoffs.
I've tried the raisin bran knock off (bran flakes), and the difference for me is the brans, they soak so quick, that they literally become soggy within a minute. I will not eat soggy cereal.
Anyone ever bought something from a cheap franchise to consume? Dollar Tree has something that looks a LOT like cheese. Problem? It doesn't really say it on the bag, rather words like:
American shreds, Pizza Shreds. Well once in my life I bought a pack. After 15 minutes in the oven, not ONE SHRED melted. If there were a hundred shreds...when I took it out the oven, there were 100 browned shreds. Not one shred melted.
Video above, the guy sets the cheese looking chemical...on fire! Doesn't melt.
No longer does it say cheese, just say American Singles...
Ever caught yourself trying to save some money only to realize it really isn't a generic brand as much as a generic brand piggy backing off a brand name hoping people will associate it?
