My current breakfast cereal of choice

is Kellogg's Special K with peach and apricot. The dried pieces of fruit give a really tasty boost to what would otherwise be, quite frankly, a rather dull breakfast of 'Crunchy Rice and Wheat Flakes'. This morning though I have been most displeased. "Where?" I ask myself crossly as I rummage deep into the cereal packet "are the peach and apricot pieces?" It is NOT good enough. If I buy a packet of Special K with peach and apricot then the least Kellogg's could do is to ensure I have a reasonable proportion of peach and apricot pieces within that packet. I could not find a single piece of either fruit. "Mr Kellogg will be hearing from me" I inwardly declared. On second thoughts however, as I have just noticed that I had in fact bought a packet of Kellogg's Special K sans peach and apricot, maybe I will just eat up what I have got in front of me and maintain a dignified silence on this distressing incident.


High time I brought you another historical 'fact' I think.

NUMBER 5 IN AN OCCASIONAL SERIES OF JANE'S HISTORICAL 'FACTS'

Kellogg's Corn Flakes were invented by a Dr. Kellogg in hopes that they would reduce masturbation. See here for further enlightenment.

They should have given them out free during May- which was masturbation month so that people could get on with their work.

Everyone must know that I certainly do not eat kellog's - otherwise, why do they know I'm a wanker?

Pixie said...

OH I'm so pleased I eat organic Dorset cereals, even if they are cardboard with fruit in.

Such a relief..... :)

I actually discovered masturbation after eating Kellogg's Cornflakes.

Yes Gill, I for one am so 'relieved' to see the end of May...totally exhausting as it was.

Reidski, I still can not comprehend how someone came across your blog by a search on the word 'wanker.' Funny though!

Pixie, why does 'organic' in this context make me think of 'orgasmic'?

Dandelion - I should hope so! I imagine you were quite young when you first had cornflakes. And where has your blog gone?

crikey, did kellogs print that bit of history on the back of the cornflakes packet then?

You know, you are allowed to add your own peach and appricot bits.

J.J said...

It is very strange Rilly, but they have been somewhat coy about thsi particular effect eating your cornflakes could have on your sex drive.

Ah yes Joe - although I am sorry to say there is a distinct shortage of fresh peaches and apricots around these parts.

JoeinVegas said...

Sorry, guess I am too used to living in the western US, where our supermarkets are always overflowing with assorted fruits.

Joe - I have just turned a rather unattractive shade of green with jealousy.
