I have a fond dislike for chocolate cereal. This is probably due to my mother's refusal to buy it for us as kids and the constant reminder that chocolate cereal is gross. And so I now think this way too. Chocolate cereal IS gross. This is probably how my strange obsession with healthy fiber filled cereal began. I LOVE a cereal that has fiber in it but it has to have a lot of fiber in it. Actually I will admit I love ANYTHING with fiber in it. I just basically love fiber. I enjoy, despite much ridicule from my friend Michele and sister in law Liz, fiber filled yogurt. Yes it's really good, although they do not agree. Woohoo 6 easy grams of fiber in that tasty little cup. Ok, well sorry for my fiber tangent and we'll go back to chocolate cereal (it has no fiber I might add as my last fiber comment).
Leo bought the kids Coco Puffs, shockingly they were on sale for $1.68 which is unheard of for a box of cereal these days, (hmm..I wonder why...). I thought well surely the kids won't like this cereal, because hello!!! it's gross. What the hell was I thinking? What kid wouldn't like chocolaty goodness filling their breakfast bowl changing the milk to some nasty color of brown resembling the color of my previous wall paint? Oh certainly not my kids...WRONGO. They loved it, they welcomed it into their morning routine with love. I am grossed out. Why can't they like Fiber One? I might have to turn into my mother on this one and refuse to buy it again. Maybe their love of it will wear off quickly as with everything else they run into these days. I can only hope...I must begin my plan of making them love fiber as much as I do.
