On Trying Generic Raisin Bran (Don’t)

This morning, eating my Whole Foods brand raisin bran (which I had to plunder to find raisins, and don't get me started about the 'bran'), I said, “This raisin bran is really bad.”
Ben said, “Did you try adding sugar?”
I said, “I never add sugar.”
He said, “Maybe you should try.”
I said, with a mouthful of gummy fake raisin bran, “I don’t think sugar would help.”
Ben said, “What?”
I repeated, “I don’t think sugar would help.”
He said, “Oh I heard what you said. Did you?”

Moral of this story: Sugar always helps. Except with generic Whole Foods Raisinless Gummy Flakes.

I have that same awful cereal. Trust me. Not even sugar and caramel and chocolate on top would help.

BTW, I dig that your posts are now at the top instead of way, way down.

ugh that sounds hideous. if sugar wouldn't help it, that's food not even a dog would eat.

Callie, it's true, this morning I just couldn't eat it. I think I got most of the raisins out yesterday anyway. I'm confused about the posts at top - I haven't done anything different - are you using a different browser maybe?

You should try the new chocolate lucky charms. They are soooo good and the marshmallows are still the same!
