Where the hell is Toucan Sam? I want to barbeque his blue-feathered ass.
Whatâ€™s up with this 1/3 less sugar in his Froot Loops?
Doesnâ€™t Toucan Sam realize heâ€™s ruining the lives of grade school children everywhere? Sending them to school without adequate sugar levels is a recipe for failure in the classroom.
I hate to imagine where would I have been without sugary breakfast cereals? I probably wouldnâ€™t have survived grade school. I wouldnâ€™t have paid attention to my teacher, gotten good grades, completed my math worksheets before anyone else, gotten gold stars on my progress chart, become the tetherball king of the playground, or be able to handle the beating I received for being the biggest nerd, geek, dweeb, and dork.
For me, sugar was like steroids. It made me a better student. Sure I was a little â€œhusky,â€ but I excelled in school and thatâ€™s all that really mattered. Itâ€™s better to be a smart â€œhuskyâ€ kid than a stupid â€œhuskyâ€ kid.
For a while the cereal companies had it right by adding more. They were adding more chocolate, more marshmallows, and more rainbow fruity colors.
But now the trend is to have less. So eventually is there also going to be less chocolate, less marshmallows, and less rainbow fruity colors?
Whereâ€™s the neural stimulant that kids are going to need to make it through lunch? They canâ€™t drink coffee, because no grade school child can afford Starbucks everyday.
Despite having 1/3 less sugar than regular Froot Loops, I was surprised that it tastes almost like regular Froot Loops. But still, I wish it had more sugar, some marshmallows, and more rainbow fruity colors.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Itâ€™s where we all get the energy to make it through work and school. For many adults that energy comes in the form of caffeine. For kids, that energy comes in the form of sugar, because I donâ€™t know of any parents that are irresponsible/cool enough to allow their kids to drink soda with breakfast.
So Toucan Sam, please put the sugar back into Froot Loops.
They still sell regular Froot Loops?
Oh, never mind.
