Honey Nut Cheerios

As a kid, I was always averse to eating any kind of Cheerios because it was my oldest brother's favorite cereal, and he was molesting me. I was more prone to eating stuff I consider disgusting now, like Lucky Charms and CooliOs.

Hold on, I think my virtual reality device is still on. There we go – okay, I meant to say Lucky Charms and Fruity Yummy Mummy.

Somewhere along the way to old age, though, I started eating Honey Nut Cheerios. Then I stopped. A little later, I started again, and have continued to eat them off and on ever since. This is primarily because it is one of the few cereals that comes in a humongous box with two bags inside.

I guess that eating this cereal is "fun," because the bowl starts out as a heaping pile of wet, crunchy Cheerios, and as it winds down, they become softer and chewier. When all the cereal is gone, you're left with a small amount of honey nut-flavored milk that can either taste good or disgusting depending on how much time has elapsed since you woke up.

Also, the box (whether giant-size or normal) lasts a long time, and doesn't suffer from too much settling. There is a downside, however, in that if you're not careful, Honey Nut Cheerios can be very abrasive to your alveolar ridge, leaving your mouth sore for most of the day, and possibly even the next day or two.

Some seem to dislike the Honey Nut Cheerios bee, but I like it. I think that bee is integral to selling the cereal. Otherwise, it's just a box of Honey Flavored Torus Crunch.

Wait a minute, I don't know what I was saying earlier – I never liked Fruity Yummy Mummy.
