Okay, so I’m at the supermarket shopping for breakfast cereal, since sometimes I just like to grab a quick bowl of something before work.
“Hey, Rice Krispies!” I says to myself, thinkingsweet thoughts of Rice Krispy squares. “Let’s get these, they’ll be yummy!”
So I buys the Krispies and takes them home. Next morning, I hop out of bed, wash up, then pour myself a big heapin’ bowl of Rice Krispies with milk (lowfat).
… WTF?! These things are bland!
Not wanting to waste food, I resign myself to my fate and finish off the bowl. The matter keeps haunting me, however … where are those yummy Rice Krispies of my youth?
Wondering if I was just unlucky enough to get a bad bag, I hunt down a friend who also eats Rice Krispies. “Lemme have a bowl,” I said.
He gives me an odd look, but agrees.
I pour in the milk, dig out a spoonful… bland. Yuck.
Maybe it’s my memories playing tricks on me, or maybe Kellogs has changed the formula since I last had 'em, but I can only conclude that today’s Rice Krispies have as much flavorful appeal as soggy tissue paper.
And now I’m stuck with a box of taste-deprived Rice Krispies that I’ll have to force myself to finish off, just because I’m not going to waste the food.
Damn you, Rice Krispies!
(Okay, so it’s not much of a rant, but I wanted to rant anyway. Anyone for a bowl of Rice Krispies? )
