New cereal sadly sums up problem

I just heard of this new cereal out there and here is what I think about it.

So, American kids aren’t getting fat enough, fast enough, so they have invented a new cereal called Krave. It’s a yummy, crunchy cookie-like substance with a surprise in the center. Yep! You guessed it. It has chocolate! Real chocolate, not that fake looking and tasting stuff.

Yep, kids (and some adults who “midnight munch”) now have a real chocolate cereal, not funny shapes dyed “chocolate color” or made with chocolate flavorings. You don’t have to worry about shoving all those Twinkies and Hostess and Lil Debbie’s pastries down your piehole, you will get your sugar and candy fix at breakfast. Now you can say, “All I eat is healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner, I don’t know why my blood sugar is up through the roof and I am morbidly obese and bordering on having diabetes.”

Bad parents can say, “I feed my child a healthy, balanced breakfast … how can you say I am a bad parent?” (Because all cereals claim to give us all our ‘National Daily Allowance’ of vitamins and minerals. No one yet knows what Riboflavin is, where it comes from or what it does but we sure eat enough of it; it’s right there on the ingredients label, next to Niacin.)

Shame on you Kellogg’s! Shame, shame, shame on you. Aren’t our kids obese enough for you? Don’t we already look bad enough when compared to other countries’ kids? Jeeeez, what’s next? Corn syrup IVs?
