    Special K commercials

    I was sitting, eating my ribs, minding my own business and the commercial comes on. A lady in her car, drinking something. She stops at the intersection, this huge creepy cupcake comes up and offers her a cupcake. She rolls her window up, even though she is in a convertible and drives off. This is a new Special k commercial for their new protien cereal.

    I didn't see any bacon in the dish of this other commercial for the same product.
    Special K Commercial 2012 - YouTube this is the one where the little girl goes to the lady's door, to sell her donuts and the lady is eating the new "protien" special K.

    10g if protein oh well at least they are admitting it will help keep you full longer but the CW crowd will just say it is the fibre doing that.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    There's another cereal, (maybe one of the Kashis?) that touts that it has as much protein as two eggs. I looked it up when I first saw it and you have to eat like 230 calories of the cereal to get the same protein as in the 140 calories in two eggs.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It's rather laughable that the Special K commercial implies that a bowl of Chocolate Special K would be a heathier, more satisfying choice over chocolate. There's probably 3 flakes of mockolate in that shit and that ain't satisfactioning me.

    Wow! 10 whole grams of protein?

    I bet it's soy based protein too...

    Aw, but I'm sure it's low-fat and has a ton of hearthealthywholegrains too. It's good for you.....rolls eyes...
    These commercials get on my nerves. What really makes me snap the tv off is when cereal commercial is followed by one for lipitor..
    But, hey that's how big agra and big pharma make their billions........rant over.
