Wanna feel young again? Wanna go back to a time where you had zero worries?
It hit me Wednesday night when I was at the grocery store. While walking through the cereal aisle, I stopped and looked at how ‘healthy’ cereal is now.
Immediately I went back to when I was a kid and all of those GREAT cereals were around. Some are still here but don’t have that same effect.
So here are my favorite cereals of all time. And yes, once you start seeing these and thinking about them, you will be 12 again.
A truly bad ass cereal. Look at that ghost. A combo of Don Rickles and your uncle. Plus, a bow tie. Only worst part of eating this?
Learning and eating at the same time. Truth be told, it was an awful cereal. But where else as a kid could you spell ‘fart,’ or ‘asshole,’ and then eat the evidence? No where. And yes, I had a peculiar upbringing.
The Wal-Mart version of Lucky Charms. Got the job done.
One of the most underrated cereals of all time. The Eli Manning of cereals. Not the best but in crunch time, Apple Jacks simply got the damn job done.
Had to put these two beauties together. Yummy Mummy? So incredible. Tell me, look at that smile on the Mummy? Only a kick ass cereal could get him to smile that way.
Now to my favorite two of all time:
Effin Franken Berry. My God, not kidding, just looking at that monster, I wanna hug him and eat cereal. I am 12 years old again. And a pop rocket too? Pure heaven!!!
AND COMING IN AT NUMBER ONE!!
NUMBER ONE BY FAR! OK, it is creepy now that King Vitaman looks like Jerry Sandusky, but besides that, it was THE best cereal growing up. In that cereal box, I was convinced I could be a king too.
And maybe, in some small way, I am.
Thank you, King Vitaman.
