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:
