I’ve been eating a lot of cheerios; so many, in fact, that we’ve switched to the non-brand cereal as a way to save money. Most every store sells their own version of Cheerios. I have to wonder who comes up with the knockoff names for this stuff. Cheerios ™ are now “Oatey-O-Shaped Product”, featuring a anthropomorphic dinosaur named, delightfully enough, Oatey. In this new alternative, cents-saving economy of non-brand cereal that imitates the genuine, we now have cereal with names like:
– Superstitious Elements (Lucky Charms)
– FooledYou! (Trix)
– Frosty Flax, featuring Terry the Tigress (Frosted Flakes)
– Sweeping Compound of Granola (Honey Bunches of Oats)
That’s all I can think of right now. The best part: Saving money. The worst part: the taste.
