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:

    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.

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

  3. Anjellica

    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.

  4. Becky Faye Penson

    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)! :)

  5. Scoon83

    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?

  6. Lore P.L.

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

  7. Mint Jang

    OMG TARDUS MUG!!!!

  8. luchana12

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

  9. Maricela Cendejas

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

  10. Ginaglu

    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

  11. askseungri

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

  12. askseungri

    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!

  13. Danielle J. Pekalski

    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!

  14. Justine

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

  15. 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.

  16. Literati Tempo

    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.

  17. QueenCL

    I want a tardis mug!

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

  19. MandiiLynn

    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

  20. 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

  21. Paola Diego

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

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

  23. 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!

  24. CeceAvila
    CeceAvila

    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.

  25. 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

  26. Sally Louw

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

  27. 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

  28. Gemma Deacon

    The tardis mug is so relevant for now! :D

  29. Starsania

    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

  30. shalina

    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

  31. kawaii_candie
    kawaii_candie

    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

  32. Zaahira

    You can legally buy those in Texas.

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. Daryl Stephenson

    Rick James and Eddie Murphy in one week.

    It’s happening again.

  37. I looooooooooooooove your doctor who mug!!!!!!! *_*

  38. Cristalle Smith

    i’ve never seen milk in bags in british columbia or alberta. i went to university in the united states and americans always asked about the milk in bags. but i hadn’t been exposed to it. it must be an eastern canadian thing?

  39. PunkyPrincess92
    PunkyPrincess92

    just yesterday i saw a pic of Oreo’s cereal on my fb feed from a Korean page i liked and i got so sad cos i wanted it so bad!!! it looked so cool and delicious!!!
    …but now…i guess it ain’t all that…haha!!

  40. Kessie

    Guys, I was just thinking about this cereal the other day and trying to tell my sister who is 9 about them. We had them in the US a looooonnnnggggg time ago. :) Thanks for sharing

  41. Mystification

    They might have discontinued it in the US, but I remember as a kid seeing it in the stores…but my mom would never buy it for me :(

  42. bingham3

    I swear I remember seeing this cereal (either in Canada or on one of my trips to the States) before and it just got discontinued like so many cookie/candy based cereals do.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oreo_cereal

  43. Suggestion: Get the mini Oreo packets and dump them in milk. BAM. Oreo cereal (:

    I haven’t had kids cereal is a long time. Nesquik and Reese’s puffs. I think I wanna go to Metro now lmfao.

  44. NANAandLIZZYfanatic

    The US had this cereal for years, and me and lots of ppl I know liked it.
    ..but we also haven’t had it for years because I’m pretty sure they discontinued it here.

    Edit: French Toast Crunch is another you mention that I really liked but seems to be discontinued in the US for quite awhile.

    Edit 2: I don’t really care for CTC anymore now that I’ve had the Cinnabon cereal. SOO GOOD!

  45. marbie

    In Hungary you can get your milk not just in boxes but in bags as well!!!

  46. TheArrowPen

    Wow, the Stay Puft Marshmallow man and a TARDIS mug in the same video! Be still my nerdy heart!

  47. LOL every time i go into our import sweet store, i always see the oreo cereal behind the counter.

  48. Abigail Hunter

    OMG!! I have that tardis mug!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. My OH discovered Oreo Oz when we went to Korea last year. They are sooooo expensive to buy in the UK because they need to be shipped from Korea. So now we get my sister (who is in Korea) to ship some to us every now and then. BTW I got bad stomach cramps after eating this too!

  50. Nicol Johnson

    The State Puff Marshmallow Man is his name. lol. I think this is the second video I have seen where you forget his name. They even blew him up with their laser thingies which I can’t remember the name of. ALSO, you are never to cross the streams.

  51. Reese Peanut Butter Cups Cereal?????? DAMN YOU SWEDEN AND YOUR RELATIVELY HEALTHY CEREALLLLLL

    • Fafou Them

      Don’t be too down! I had them once and they were kind of a rip-off. Too much peanut butter taste and not enough chocolate-y taste. Plus, sweden have the BEST chocolates! I’d take that over cereal any day.

  52. Liv Simae

    OHMYGOD SIMON CAN I JUST SAY HOW AWESOME AWESOME AND SUPER COOL YOUR TARDIS CUP IS?????
    I’m like, super jealous now xD

  53. ℳα¢αƴℒα ♔

    Marshmallow guy from Ghost busters = Stay Puff Marshmallow man…..yep some how I knew exactly who Martina was talking about

  54. kakashiandme

    Oh guise… it’s not only available in Korea. I buy my kids Oreo cereal all the time and I live in the U.S. I think in our family Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch is #1. :)

  55. You guise are adoooooraaablllle. <3

  56. Emily

    If you guys are interested in reliving childhood cerealing, they sell cinnamon toast crunch at Costco here in Korea. No need to go overseas.

  57. Persephone Basilissa

    As a young ajumma, I never bought my sons sweet cereals for breakfast; they always ate healthy ones like Chex, Cheerios and oatmeal. However, about once a month I’d let them choose “dessert cereals” to have for snacks. Since we don’t keep cookies, candy or ice cream around the house, Cookie Crisp, Froot Loops and Lucky Charms were my kids’ most common treat.

  58. Waha Melbourne

    I know this is completely off the topic but can you do a SUPER HYPER KOREAN SHOWDOWN :P Ive been always curious to know who is the better korean speaker :)

  59. Halophila
    Halophila

    In the US you can get boxed milk and other drinks, but it usually has a plastic cap that you can snap shut.

  60. Gabriel (Shallsaur)

    Oh no Simon & Martina….
    We can buy this in Singapore too…
    And it is in English language too… definitely not imported from Korea lol

  61. Sara Saliba

    You guys cracked me up! Also, Martina I like your hat. I can’t wait until I can buy it!

  62. Leina Grace

    Oh man! I miss this cereal! It used to be sold in the U.S. when I was a kid in the 90s. Oreo Cereal: Come baaaaaaaack!

  63. Fafou Them

    So speaking of things you can only get in korea, look what I found! (curtsy of Korea Town in NYC):

    Gel Lips and the Animal Hats with the mittens

    P.S. I just find this funny because I can’t decide if these two items proves or disproves the idea that they can only be found in Korea? Are they an exception to the rule or what? An interesting conundrum huh?

    • Rukie Andrei

      Even though they can be found outside of Korea its still from Korea. This only reason its in NYC is because its a Korean area so unless you normally shop there this items would be unknown to you.

      • Fafou Them

        Ah! That totally makes sense! I so haven’t though of it from that angle before. But still, I find them to be a weird kind of inception on logic and reasoning. It’s like: I found them outside of Korea, but did I really?

  64. Katie Allis

    Lol I totally Had this as a kid. I prefer my cocoa puffs but it was something I had to try. It definitely lacked the “Cream” so it was basically chocolate fruit loops lol. I’ll just stick to throwing a bunch of oreos into a cup and call it a day. : P

  65. G.Gee.C.

    I saw it last week at a local korean shop… now i am tempted to buy it. (I’m in Australia)

  66. Elizabeth 비에이피

    I used to have this in Singapore when I was a kid- like, about 10 years ago. I miss it haha; it’s really good.

  67. bobinlisa

    My parents bought them once, none of us liked them and the box lived in our pantry for a few years and got thrown away. Cool they still have them some where. Its really funny actually cause a couple of my roommates were talking about them last night. Did they read your minds or what?

  68. KatieKin

    OH MY GOD YOU FOUND MY CHILDHOOD!!!!

  69. DuchessRhea

    XD I almost bought those the other day when I was at eMart, because they advertised the whole “Oreos” thing. Kinda glad I didn’t (though I’m not too sure my actual choice was any better… 콘푸로스트, a.k.a. Corn Frost a.k.a. Frosted Flakes… XP). Do more only-in-Korea stuff sometimes; it’s fun!

  70. x3 They used to sell this in El Salvador!

  71. Handuo334

    GAHH..!! I hate it when I find out that I read the post in a wrong voice..! (Especially near the end). Simon, and Martina, can you guys come up with a solution to this problem? I almost thought Martina gets a headache when it rains.

  72. lady_kire
    lady_kire

    Sometimes, I get jelly of these choco cereals and choco foods… I really hate the taste of chocolate to the point where I gag. I can only handle Japanese chocolates (I dont think it’s real cocoa chocolate) cakes with white chocolate, choco syrup with a mountain of whipped cream, and red velvet Ii dont care what the world says, i refuse to believe its chocolate). Watching this makes me hungry and disgusted at the same time…

    Also, yay there’s someone else in the world who doesnt like cereal milk! I hate mixing milk with cereal. Makes the cereal soggy and the milk taste gross

  73. Keey Yee

    “SOOZEE SIMON’S PICKING ON ME!” ohemgeez so cute :]

  74. Sorry to burst your bubble, but this is STILL AVAILABLE in the U.S. At least, it’s still available in the Minneapolis area.

    • Sachimi

      This. I don’t like super-sweet cereal like that, but we’ve had Oreo O’s available for quite some time. I have no idea how it tastes though. I stick with regular Oreo’s.

    • irritablevowel
      irritablevowel

      Someone in Minneapolis is stocking blackmarket Oreo cereal! Either that or I’d check that expire date. It was a co-venture between Kraft and Post and they are no longer co..venturing (?) There is a whole explanation about why they can still make it in South Korea on Wikipedia.
      Maybe some scattered companies in the US have a similar situation to the South Korean company and can still produce it?

  75. hapagirl
    hapagirl

    When this was in the States, my brother wanted them and my parents bought it for him. He didn’t even eat more than like one bowl of it before asking for another box. I’ve always been the picky eater so I stick to Cheerios. But cereal really does remind me of my childhood, it was what we ate when we were hungry and wanted a snack. And how dare Martina take all your marshmallows and eat count chocula without you!

  76. unicornsgalaxy

    So COMPLETELY off the subject of cereal….I’m so bummed! The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special will be on later today and I don’t have BBC America so I’m going to miss it and have to wait A WHOLE DAY until it becomes available on Amazon. TT_TT

    …sorry..Doctor Who mug brought that on…and sleepiness…definitely sleepiness…

  77. Masonvd

    So, story time.

    I visited Korea last October and loved it to death. I can’t wait to go back.

    The only real downside was god damn Korean Oreos. My hostel was across from a 7/11 and I wandered down to it at about 10PM one night looking for a snack. I couldn’t read hangul at the time and didn’t know the Korean word for Peanut, a food which I am pretty allergic to. So I went with oreos, figuring I’d be safe since they’re peanut free in Canada.

    Turns out, not so much in Korea! They don’t actually have peanuts, but are made in a factory that also makes stuff with peanuts. So my friends asleep I had to try to explain to the people at the hostel what was wrong, as them to direct me to the nearest hospital and all that jazz.

    Luckily for me I was staying a very short distance from Seoul National University Hospital. Great right!? WRONG. I had to wave down 3 or 4 different cabs before one would drive me there. They all told me it was too close and not worth their time to drive me such a short distance (ended up being about a 5 minute drive)

    So finally I get to the hospital and now have to try to explain to the desk guy what’s wrong with me. After a minute or two of charades they finally get the SINGLE doctor on shift who spoke good English.

    From there it was actually pretty smooth sailing. The hospital was quiet and the English speaking doctor actually sat with me the whole time I was there and we talked about my trip and Kpop and all sorts of stuff…it was actually fun :S

    So anyway, that’s my story about Korean Oreos…not even once.

  78. Akira Miyashi

    There’s still some nasties chatting at the broken live chat video. Haahahah. XD

  79. /awkward moaning/ I want sugarrryyy cereals nowwwww uugghh why did i not buy some on my way home from work tonight??? ;_____________________________;

  80. JustDense

    I live in Mexico and I actually remember having some of these when I was a child! it was a somewhat small box that would perish in like… 5 days lmao (because I actually liked the flavor since my favorite part of the oreos is the cookie haha)
    I am sure my parents got it from this supermarket (HEB) that mostly sold imported products from the US, then I moved out from that town and never saw that brand of cereal ever again :(

  81. silverdoodles

    Always seen it during my childhood in US stores. Still have never tried it in my entire life.

  82. Vero Huipio

    I grew up and still live in Chicago and we used to that cereal here too. I loved it

  83. What if! You had to buy Oreo Cream to put on the Oreo Cereal to get that “True” Oreo taste O_o

  84. Crim~on hiatus~

    i remember eating this when i was a kid in Costa Rica, but i think it was limited edition or something like that… because it’s being ages since i found it…

  85. Carrie Rider

    I saw the box and read it as “Oreo o-ji” at first…. Which translated as “Oreo orgy” in my head….. Jeezums.
    Anyhow, I’m at least glad I can read the Korean now -.- lol

  86. SI306090

    Milk in an Aseptic carton is less odd to me that milk in clear plastic bags.

    Oh Canada…

  87. Seishin

    It’s Stay Puft Marshmallow man Martina. :D

  88. Mary G (매리)

    Totally didn’t start going “OREOS! HUH!” to the tune of Warrior. Don’t mind me. I’ve been up too long.

  89. gurglaugh

    OMG I’M A HUGE FAN OF OREO ASHDSKSALSHDGKSJAS.
