The Powerpuff Girls Cereal

The Powerpuff Girls Cereal

I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of breakfast cereals. Growing up in the seventies, my palate was honed on Honeycomb, Life, Trix, and Cap’n Crunch. There were periods of my childhood where I would scarcely eat anything else. On a recent trip to the store, I was intrigued by The Powerpuff Girls cereal, so I grabbed a box, and when I got home, I tried it out. The main part of the cereal is just plain old Rice Krispies, but mingled in among the familiar beige pieces of rice are what look like clusters of Fruity Pebbles, but they are actually something akin to Pop Rocks candy, so they fizz and pop in your mouth and in the milk. The idea is quite novel, but the cereal become ungodly sweet with the addition of the Pop Rocks. I think Rice Krispies squares made with Powerpuff Girls cereal might be interesting. Despite my reservations, The Powerpuff Girls cereal is certain to be a hit with the pre-school set and stoners everywhere.,
