Fun Facts About All Kinds of Stuff!

5 Cool Things About Cereal

My husband once told me that one of his childhood fantasies was to grow and get his own house so that he could line his pantry with all of his favorite cold cereals. He says the ultimate dream was to get up, walk to the kitchen, get the biggest bowl he could find and fill it to the max with Sugar Smacks and milk. I will admit that I love to start my day with a bowl of Raisin Bran so I kinda understand his fantasy. Anyway, today’s post is inspired by (you guessed it!), CEREAL! So, here goes 5 cool facts about this beloved breakfast item.
