Sprinkles!

Post by Green Gibbon! »

I just found out about this.

This is huge. I know I've said that before, but this is, like... cosmic huge. This is measure-in-light-years huge. Has the cereal market finally returned to such a state of maturity that it's possible to market vanilla cereals again?

Could I dare to hope that this is Vanilla Wafer Cookie Crisp, one of the original three flavors, reborn and rebranded?


Has anyone tried it? Is it... is it freaking awesome?

All they sell here is Frosted Flakes and Cocoa Krispies. :(

Do you remember Sprinkle Spangles? Those were so flipping good. The sprinkles were really hard, almost hard to chew. My mother would give it to us as a reward for doing good deeds.

I don't think I ever had Sprinkle Spangles, but I do fondly remember the one box I had of Hidden Treasures. I always thought that was a pretty good idea.

All this talk of discontinued cereals makes me want Triples back. :(

I refuse to eat the cereal since they changed Chip from a fat burglar dog into a skinny naked wolf.

I thought he was just barefoot; he's gone all naked now?

Well, that box pic certainly is missing his shirt...

In all the commercials I've seen, he goes about with a dumb highschool-style jersey. Kind of like Sonny the Cocoa Puffs bird, before he became a naked crack-addict type.

I personally miss Rice Crispie Treats cereal. To the best of my knowledge, it isn't sold it in the Midwest anymore.

That cereal was the first thing that came to my mind when I read GG's opening post also. Dang did I love that cereal, even though it was probably more unheathly than any of the other "kid" cereals at the time.

Whoa! I just checked out Wiki on Sprinkle Spangle, and it claimed that Sprinkle Cookie Crisp taste similar to it. :O *dashes to the super market*

Goddamn you Americans and your large variety of breakfast cereals. Canada used to get all these cool flavors but now we have the bare essentials.

Yeah, really. We have fuck-all in Australia. And complaining about the mascot? They still look way better than any mascots I've seen over here.

I remember Sprinkle Spangles and I also remember hating it.

I admit that if Sprinkle Spangles was never brought up I might've been intrigued by the new sprinkled Cookie Crisps.

I tried this cereal a month or two ago.

I didn't like it. Save your money, GG.

Sprinkle Spangles was delicious, but I almost feel like it was more of a snack than a breakfast cereal.

I haven't eaten breakfast in years. I eat cereal for supper, usually.

That amount of sugar in the beggining of the day sounds like an abomination of nature.

I eat bread for breakfast. And chocolate milk.

I used to eat a lot of Cap't Crunch for breakfest; It's true when they say that it cuts the roof of your mouth. Anywho, my point is that it has tons of sugar. And yet I never felt hyper after eating it, but rather lethargic. I'll bet something's wrong with me.

And worse yet, my favorite breakfest food is butter-soaked, cholesterol-ridden fried eggs... with melted cheese. Everything I love to eat is practically a death-sentence for my cardiovascular system.

Man, you just can't get a break in this life.

Does sugar actually make people more hyper? I thought that was just an urban legend.

Sugars store chemical energy that biological cells convert into energy. So yes, eating sugar will give you energy and as a result can make you hyper.

There is no way I could be excited for this.
I sleep past breakfast and hate the taste of milk.

So?

A lot of people I know eat cereal without the milk!

Sure, it mostly the chocolate or the fruit flawored one...
