Alright, so, even though today’s LiveChat was a big failure, I remembered that we still had to publish our WTF, so we at least have something this weekend! Yay!

Ok, so I wrote this blog post a few hours after having filmed the video, and something I didn’t get to say on film because it was too soon to process: my stomach felt TERRIBLE after eating it. Whoa. I’m not sure if it’s because I haven’t had cereal this sweet in years, or because it’s raining and I had to take some Advils before to stop my headache (I get headaches when it rains), or something else, but – whoa – I didn’t feel good after eating this.

Fact is, I got more excited at the concept than the actual execution: this barely tasted anything like Oreos! Oreos are dense. This cereal is fluffy. Oreos take a while to chew because they coat your mouth in black crumbles. These dissolve like cheese puffs upon touching your mouth. It didn’t taste like Oreo whatsoever. SO DISAPPOINTED!

Now that I think about it, what would be the harm in making cereal out of real Oreos? Take a bunch, crack them into smaller pieces, cover them in milk, and scoop that up. No harm in that! Apart from the rampant unhealthiness of it all, I think it sounds delicious.

On another note, we were surprised that this was the first time we ate junky cereal together. When we first got married we’d get healthy-ish stuff like Oatmeal Raising Bran or whatnot, but we never bought the good stuff: the kids cereals. Cinnamon Toast Crunch? Haven’t had that since I was in my teens. We just asked Soo Zee about it as well. She’s never had CTC before. She’s going overseas for her vacation in January and we told her she had to try some. I wonder if she’ll like it. I mean, it meant a lot to me as a kid, that and French Toast Crunch and Reese Peanut Butter Cups Cereal, but will a grown adult like the taste if they didn’t have it in their youth? I don’t know.

Wait: I just remembered…WE DID HAVE KIDS CEREAL SOMEWHAT RECENTLY! Back in our old apartment in Bucheon, someone sent us Count Chocula cereal and put Mordney Present on the cover, and it was hilarious. I don’t remember eating it, though. WAIT A SECOND! Did Martina eat it all without sharing? Holy snapcakes! She’s got some explaining to do. You should click on this button here while I go interrogate:

    Here is the link. It says it went off the market in 2007, but may still be found in South Korea. Its called “Oreo Os.”

    Haha. This is awesome!!!

    Oh goodness! These were the best when I was a kid. These and Reese’s Puffs. And I didn’t see them again until just a couple months ago. When I moved to my college town I randomly visited the local HEB even though I don’t really shop there and there they were, just stacked on the cereal shelf and I heard angels sing. I’ve asked friends at school from all over Texas and apparently Waco is the only place you can really still find them here.

  4. They actually sold this cereal in the US years ago. They might still sell it here but I have not seen it recently.

  5. Yeah I live in the USA and as a child I lived with my grandma and she used to buy me this cereal until it disappeared off the shelf.

    Martina, you were trying to think of the name of the marshmallow man from Ghostbusters (1 specifically)?

    It’s called the ‘Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’! (Picture below~^^)
    I hope this nastie helped you out nastily! ;)
    (I apologise if someone else got there before me)! :)

  7. i want oneee :<

  8. One of the best things about your videos is all the funny subtitles that pop up on screen. When they got blurry because Simon was eating the cereal, I absolutely cracked the f up lol Good job whoever does the editing; is it Suzee or Leigh?

  9. we have those in México!, i don’t like them :P

  10. OMG TARDUS MUG!!!!

  11. when i used to live in jamaica i used to eat that cereal

  12. Maricela Cendejas

    yeah, we use to have this cereal back in the day in Cali….so good!!!! Don’t know why it was discontinued :(

  13. NO WAY, I HAVE THIS. I’m from England and there’s a chain of Korean supermarkets that sell this :) It’s around £4 for a box but I wanted to try it because it looked so cute :3

  14. Oh and BTW Martina, he’s the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. ;-) kekeke! One of my all time favorite movies~ ^_^ <3

  15. You know what I thought of while watching this & when you said, “You can’t have any.” What happened to when you used to give the WTF’s away to a lucky Nasty??? Then! And only then…could we easily try some. XD

    Simon picked on Marina for saying “nannie, nannie boo, boo” recently, now Simon’s doing it and Martina gets to pick on him, hehehe!

    i <3 Oreos, but haven't had them in ages. In cereal form, that makes me worried…Speaking of headaches when it rains, I had that same weird issue. For me it triggers migraines which sucks (as does dim sum, sooo good!) What I found that works really, really well is Nasonex (aka Mometasone Furoate). In the US there's no generic, but I found it made a world of difference!

  17. umm i like live for oreos!! wanna send me some pls?!?

  18. canada rocks Nicole_P

    my mom works for Kraft which owns the oreo so the fact is, is that the oreos are different in asia because the people in asia dont like how sweet the american oreo is so Kraft modified it to fit Asian taste. so the oreo might tast weird or diffrent.

    I have a TARDIS mug…. I also loved this cereal. I feel like the US version was better. It was crisper and there were no marshmallows. One of my favorite cereals for spoiling myself.

  20. I want a tardis mug!

  21. SIMON! I want your TARDISmug!! where did you get one?? that is so cool!

  22. My roommate and I went to the grocery store the other day and she was talking about this cereal and how she loved it as a kid and was very upset when they stopped making it. And when I saw this video I told her about it and she now demands me to find a way to ship this out to us in Arizona.
    EDIT:
    Scratch that, she just bought it online for 12 bucks… I shouldn’t of told her

  23. Alexandra Huang

    Aw. Looks like these really aren’t exclusive to Korea guise haha. I don’t think I ever got too attached the the “kid”s cereals because they were always too sweet for my tastes BUT everyone once in a while was a treat! I still don’t eat cereal much but my favorites right now are Honey bunches of Oats, Cherrios, and Kix – the latter two are eaten without milk more often than not haha

  24. Paola Diego

    this is sell in m countrY but its the most expensive cereal XD BUT i buy it anyway XD

  25. Im from Mexico. And the Milk comes in a box as well. Recently they started selling it in gallons.

  26. Ok, I don’t really care about cereal, so my only comment to this is… Is it weird to have milk in boxes? haha here in Brazil it’s like the normal thing. Can someone tell me if in other parts of Asia (or the world, maybe) it’s like that, too? Now I’m curious!

    I find it weird that you all made a video for this. They used to sell it in the US a few years back. I loved it.

  28. Pfft NOTHING beats Corn Pops!! ( I almost had a case of dyslexia there, ehem, ‘porn cops’ O_o waaaaaat! xD) <3 I would eat them straight outta the bag. I had that cereal when I was tiny, I remember eating it at gma's house! :0

  29. Sally Louw

    Here is how we do it, mini oreos and milk DIAbETES

  30. Here is how we do it

  31. I’m sorry, I wasn’t paying attention to nothing but that TARDIS mug lol…it was the night before the 50TH anniversary so my mind had been on Doctor Who all week long. I hardly got any work done because of the Doctor, but alas its over after today so is time for me to get back to work lol

    I used to eat that stuff when I was little, I guess I haven’t seen it on the shelves lately. I don’t eat cereal anymore either so I haven’t noticed it was discontinued XD

  34. The States used to have it but I guess it got discontinued but now we have S’mores cereal. I wonder if I should mail it to you or to just keep the glory all to myself *mordney present laugh* BRO HOHO BRO HOHO

    definitely jealous! In Japan, you can get exactly 3 kinds of cereals.

    1. fake brand frosted-flakes
    2. fake brand frosted-fakes chocolate
    3. some musli-type ceral with little dried fruits in it.

    that’s it. plus they all come in these ridiculously tiny boxes, and cost like 5$. not worth it!!!

    this post is making me nostalgic for cereal from home… also i suddenly want to watch Ghostbusters again. :p

  36. You can legally buy those in Texas.

  37. ooooooooo it looks really good, but when u guys go shopping for food take us with u so we can see more of a verity.

  38. Jessica Verrette

    I remember having these as a kid. They used to have them in North America. Crazy. I remember them just tasting like mini stale glazed chocolate donuts.

  39. Blissfullygone

    Hmmm.. Tiny milk Containers. Im curious about something, though I am having trouble wording it. When I go grocery shopping here, I tend to get enough to last me 2 weeks without having to go back. (Pay Period) Though, in alot of the dramas I watch, Ive noticed they will shop daily on the way home from work. Is this just drama lore, do most Koreans shop daily, weekly? Hmm Just curious is all.
