So I know I'm supposed to be telling you about the skateboard graveyard and Buckingham Palace..but yesterday, in Walmart of all places, I had an epiphany ..
Lets wind back to Christmas and picture the scene.. 6 people sat round the breakfast table munching on thick buttered toast and homemade jam when Mother brings out a box of these... to me its like the equivalent of Angels descending...I am addicted to Crunchy Nut.
'Are they good?'
I nodded vigorously, unable to open my mouth long enough to talk without more cornflakes being stuffed inside..
'Oh, I'll try some then'
Well... I saw the same look on her face as I get on mine.. pure joy.. and she gobbled the lot in about 5 seconds flat!
Suffice to say we paid for extra luggage so we could get her a huge box home (and presents, else they would have been the most expensive cornflakes ever)
Anyway back to yesterday. I was meandering through Walmart getting all the non-food items for the month (so much cheaper than Publix on trash bags etc) when I spied an end-cap with what looked like the same gold colouring of Crunchy Nut... I picked up pace, knocking an old woman into some dish soap and running over a small, unkempt child.. and there they where... all stacked nice a neat..needing someone to boldly make the 1st move to buy some....
I bought 5 boxes... I mean what if they don't catch on? it's a security move.!
On further investigation when I got home (and after devouring a bowl for lunch) I found this article... apparently Kellogg's launched them over here January this year.. WHOOP WHOOP
They say... "Crunchy Nut's unique honey and nut flavor has made it one of the top cereal brands in the United Kingdom since its debut in 1980," Mike Morrissey, Kellogg's manager of brand PR, said in a statement. "We are confident that Crunchy Nut cereal's international popularity will continue in the U.S."
I used to be able to buy from the British Supermarket online... but its nearly $7 for a big box plus shipping.. and I can't bring myself to do it... so I'm super stoked they've arrived!
I spoke to my friend Anne after getting my fix, telling her how happy I was ..she said I was sad....
All my American readers... go buy some quick.. I need them to become a regular fixture .. PLEASE
Right I'm off for a bowl of Crunchy Nut!.. well it is 10.30am
