Froot Loops

My childhood is ruined. Well, not ruined, but I have to admit a little part of me is disappointed at the findings on fruit flavored cereals. The folks at Relevant broke the news:

Your favorite breakfast cereal is nothing but one, big lie. The crushers of childhood dreams over at Foodbeast.com recently conducted a blind taste test to determine if consumers could distinguish the difference between the brightly-colored rings of sweet goodness found in Froot Loops (note: most likely for legal reasons, they can not be referred to as “fruit” loops), and found that each color was actually the same flavor. Not content on just ruining Froot Loops for generations to come, they also used the same methodology to discredit the disguising colors behind Trix and Fruity Pebbles. All of those glorious blues, eye-catching greens and bright-like-the-rising-sun reds are nothing but sugary lies …

All Chris Queen wanted to be growing up was a game show host, a weather man, or James Bond. But his writing talent won out. By day, Chris is a somewhat mild-mannered church communications director, but by night, he keeps his finger on the pulse of pop culture and writes about it. In addition to his Disney obsession (as evidenced by his posts on this website), Chris's interests include college sports -- especially his beloved Georgia Bulldogs -- and a wide variety of music. A native of Marietta, GA, Chris moved with his family as a child to nearby Covington, GA, where he still makes his home. He is an active charter member of Eastridge Community Church and enjoys spending time with family and friends. In addition to his work at PJ Media, Chris spent nearly a year as a contributor to NewsReal Blog. He has also written for Celebrations Magazine and two newspapers in Metro Atlanta.

No duh. I figured this out by the time I was 10. Probably would have figured it out earlier but the heavily sweetened cereals were a rarity around my house.

Honestly, one of my favorite moments as a mom was my 5 year old coming home from kindergarten wearing the Froot Loop necklace he made. The look on his face was pure bliss.

I never venture into Santa or Easter Bunny territory - too many minefields.

And Girl Scout cookies are still made from Girl Scouts and Girl Scout by products, as far as I can tell.

I eat cats. Predictably, they taste just like chicken.

Leave Santa and the Easter Bunny alone.

Final Warning.

Nest you'll be telling me that Girl Scout cookies aren't made out of real Girl Scouts. Or something.
