Chocolatey Peanut Butter Goodness

As I sat down on the couch on Monday with my breakfast/lunch of Reese’s Puffs in skim milk, I glanced at the back of the box for any interesting reading material. It featured a checklist of “18 Things To Do Before You Turn 18.” I didn’t realize cereal could be age-ist…eighteen seems like so long ago.
I turned on the TV and noticed that Fairly OddParents was playing on Nickelodeon — my favorite cartoon! To my delight, it was an episode I hadn’t seen yet. During a break in the program, a commercial for Reese’s Puffs played, starring two teenage boys consuming the breakfast food. It was then that I realized I was watching cartoons geared toward pre-adolescents while enjoying a cereal I am officially too old for. A sad revelation, but not one that stopped me from eating my fill while finishing the show.
I’d also like to note that Reese’s Puffs has more vitamins & minerals than the Kashi Strawberry Fields cereal I was eating before. Sure, there’s a lot more sugar in Reese’s Puffs, but I was surprised that the Kashi cereal [despite having all those whole grains] did not have any more vitamins than the paltry bit it contained. Therefore, I shall stick to my sugary indulgence!
