    Then there's the ad with the farmer riding around on a tractor singing some crap to the tune of 99 bottles of beer on the wall.

    Yeah, I take a bit of offense at these. But I very much disliked the cereal manufacturers way before I became primal because even if you believe CW, the sugary crap they market to kids is disgusting.
    THe one with the farmer is the mini shredded wheats cereal.

      The only cereal I sometimes miss is Rice Krispies. I loved them as a kid. I can live without the squares you make with marshmallow, but sometimes a bowl of RK's sounds good.

      Then I notice that there's BHA in them, and I figure I'd probably get more nutrition if I ate the cardboard box...
      I was watching The Next Iron chef America Redemption, because I love to see what they come up with. I was a little put off when they were given Rice Krispys and Raisin Bran as their must use ingredients. As a kid I loved Raisin Bran and always added more sure.

        They might be dancing now, but check back when the sugar wears off.

          There are some commercials up here in Canada that question everything but decide they are going to trust nutrition they can can see...processed grains...sigh.
          Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

            Funny, because the only two cereals I used to like were unsugared shredded wheat and plain Special K. With nonfat milk because I didn't like the way whole milk coated my tongue. My how times have changed.

            Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

              My poison of choice used to be Kashi with non fat milk.

                  I used to eat Kashi with light Dannon yogurt. I'd destroy half a box daily.

                    Cinnamon Toast Crunch. My mom hated it because it came in a smaller box than the rest of them and I could chow the whole box in one sitting. Used to add half and half to the milk when mom wasn't looking.

                    And then was hungry by 10am at school. Maybe 1030 on the days that half and half was added. Never connected the dots.

                          Plain cornflakes, 2% milk. I could(and sometimes did) demolish an entire box and 1/2 gallon.

                          No wonder my Blood glucose was 447 on the day I was told I was a diabetic....

                            My favorite was grapenuts.

                            I hate the commercial with the mom teaching her cute little baby to eat cheerios. Say bye-bye to that nice wide facial bone structure on your baby. I also hate the one with the lady putting her clothes in the donation box while the other lady compliments her on her weight loss. Right...wholegrains do that fer sure.

                            I'm betting that a good portion of the protein in special k actually is in the skim milk you eat it with.

                              If it becomes a matter of survival, I'd have cat food before resorting to any cereal. I hate cereal with a passion and some of that Fancy Feast canned food looks and smells fairly appetizing.
