Thank you, Foodimentary, for sharing food and food product histories with us:
On tablespoon.com, there is a recipe called, Bottom of the Cereal Box Cookies. What better way to celebrate National Cereal Day than to make a batch of these. I will copy the instructions to this on the Recipes page of this blog. The great thing about it is that you use whatever cereal you have on hand:
A Grain of Truth – or, My Thoughts on Cereal
- As a kid, I enjoyed Count Chocula and Franken Berry cereals.
- In college, the dining hall kept the cereal dispensers out all day, and not just at breakfast time. If nothing in the dining hall appealed to me that day, I had a bowl of Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries for dinner.
- I have used Coco Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles cereals in cookie recipes.
- When I taught second grade, we used the different marshmallows from Lucky Charms for sorting, graphing, comparing, and various other math skills.
- About 20 years ago, I discovered that I prefer eating cereal dry. I’m not talking about nibbling on a handful of cereal out of the box to satisfy the munchies. When I pour a bowlful of cereal, I no longer add any milk, enjoying the crunch as well as the taste.
Reply below and share some of your thoughts – favorite cereals as kid and as an adult, favorite sugary cereal and favorite healthy cereal, etc. Have a recipe which includes cereal as an ingredient? Enjoy eating a bowl of cereal at times other than breakfast? Have a favorite cereal jingle or commercial? Do you prefer Kellogg’s or Post Raisin Bran? Please comment. Thank you.
