No Willpower

Remember this cereal?


"It IS cereal mommy."

... I crumbled like a... well, like a cookie.


Apparently is it still as yummy as it was 25 years ago.  Not that I would know.  Because I haven't eaten 3 bowls  one single, solitary cookie...

(and no, the irony and humor of this post immediately following my post about our lovely garden and wanting to eat as naturally and as close to the source is not lost on me.  Cookies are natural... right?  Right?)

  3. You have no idea how much I adore the picture of princess #3 slurping up her milk from her bowl....that is soooo Paige! Oh, it makes me smile to know what good friends they'd be. :)

    I remember begging and begging for Cookie Crisp cereal as a kid and my mom never budged. "that's just a box of cookies, it's not healthy" (funnily enough, she never had a problem buying me Fruit Loops. ?? LOL). But one weekend I was staying with my auntie and she bought me the coveted cereal. And I thought Cookie Crisp was disgusting. LOL!
    I'm not the healthiest girl on the block, but my favorite cereal has always been Bran Flakes. :p

  4. p.s. When did the Cookie Crisp "mascot" become a wolf? Didn't it used to be a thief wearing a mask?

  5. Ah, Melissa. I did the same begging - all to no avail. My mom wouldn't spend the money. Of course, she'd also crumble like a cookie if my girls asked her for it now. LOL My fave cereal is Grape Nuts, so we might just be two peas in a pod. I know our girlies are! :wub:

  6. I love cookie crisp cereal...it's totally all natural...or at least because it's a "vintage" type cereal it gives the appearance of being more natural...I don't know how but trying to help you out...lol Keep on NOT eating it ;-) ~Kimberly

  11. oh yeah, I remember that cereal! My parents wouldn't buy it, but I would have it sometimes at friend's houses. We don't buy sugary cereal at our house, but when we go camping it is tradition for us to buy cocoa puffs for the kids. Good memories for them! :)
