sixty-two: a letter to the folks at General Mills

While I know breakfast is touted as the “most important meal of the day” it’s never been a real favorite of mine. Eggs and I aren’t really pals you see. This is especially problematic when your friends (and all of New York really) consider Brunch an institution. I’m a cereal kind of gal myself. I recently discovered Fruity Cheerios and have been eating it by the bowlful–sometimes twice in one day (someone may have to stage an intervention soon). It is so delicious with a splash of almond milk—the perfect amount of sweet. The only thing that would make this better is a prize in the box (remember those?)!

Dear General Mills,

I am having a rather steamy affair with your Fruity Cheerios. Your promise of a “sweetened cereal with whole grain goodness” had me at first bite. I know this is a classic ‘kid’ cereal, but this grown up blames her mother. Don’t we all? You see, I wasn’t allowed sweet cereals as a kid so I’m making up for it now by the heaping spoonful. I think the orange ones are my favorite. I give the whole lot a standing ‘O’-vation. I actually look forward to breakfast now thanks to you guys!
