The Cereal Report (Classic): Rice Krispie Treats Cereal

The Cereal Report is a column in which PCFG conducts various cereal reviews, of new or limited products, as well as providing brief backgrounds on the cereal. Cereal is delicious and fairly cheap as far as meals go. Everyone should eat cereal!

 

Ever since Meg and I made our Rice Krispie Treat Pizza, it made me remember the good old days when Kellogg’s made a cereal entirely out of Krispie Treats. It managed to taste better than the disgusting pre-made treats you could buy at the store, and frankly seemed like something out of every kid’s most legendary breakfast-themed wet dreams. It was this miraculous, full-cycle of cereal where Kellogg’s took one of their cereals, turned it into a dessert, and then turned that dessert back into a cereal. Absolute genius. However that was back in the ’90s, which contrary to the modern day popularity of every frigging thing that existed from 1992-2001, we no longer live in that time period. And so for all intents and purposes, Rice Krispie Treat Cereal disappeared and we all forgot about it…

Pizza Lab #33: Marshmallow Krispie Treat Pizza

There’s not a lot of universal truths out there. It’s hard to make grand, sweeping statements that are actually true. And most professional writers and college professors will tell you the worst way to begin a piece is by doing basically what I’m doing here, but hey that’s besides the point. Anyway, here goes.

I venture to say, every single person under the age of 50 has eaten a Rice Krispie Treat, in America. Really. Come on, how can you not have? They’re a snack/dessert fixture for everyone. For many kids, that’s their first venture into the world of cooking, due to the overwhelming simplicity of them. Three ingredients, no knives or sharp objects, very little heating, and no complicated cooking involved. Everyone has to have had at least one in their life at some point.

Naturally, it’s about time we turned them into a pizza, don’t you think?

The Cereal Report: Frosted Flakes Energy Clusters

The Cereal Report is a column in which PCFG conducts various cereal reviews, of new or limited products, as well as providing brief backgrounds on the cereal. Cereal is delicious and fairly cheap as far as meals go. Everyone should eat cereal!

Frosted Flakes is cool. It’s a classic cereal that’s been around since the 1950s, it tastes good, and it’s pretty decent for you. I always liked that it’s sort of the meeting point between adult cereals and kid cereals, since it looks like a boring grown-up cereal, but it still has the yummy sweetness for all those of of us who don’t find cardboard and twigs to be particularly appetizing. Since they’re so successful, and considering their longevity, I sorta hold them in this legendary realm of God Tier cereals, ones that have been around forever, taste good, and are pretty much good on their own without need for tweaking. Very rarely does Kellogg’s release modifications or limited editions of Frosted Flakes, so when they do it’s a big deal. The last couple of iterations, Chocolate Frosted Flakes and Frosted Flake Gold (basically honey flavored), were interesting takes but ultimately fleeting. It’s been a while since their latest special edition.

The Cereal Report (Classic): Reese’s Puffs

The Cereal Report is a column in which PCFG conducts various cereal reviews, of new or limited products, as well as providing brief backgrounds on the cereal. Cereal is delicious and fairly cheap as far as meals go. Everyone should eat cereal!

So Reese’s Puffs are nothing new, they’ve been around for about twenty years, but admittedly I don’t eat them all that often. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I’ve actually eaten them, and last time I did was probably in high school. I recall not liking them very much. So I figured I’d give them another shot since they were on sale recently; maybe my adult tastes have become a bit more receptive of this blatant kid’s cereal, who knows.

Quick Recipe: Cereal Chicken

We’ve covered chicken cutlets before on PCFG. They’re easy, relatively quick, and require few ingredients. Today’s recipe is an alternate take on them, however. This recipe incorporates crushed up cereal, like Cap’n Crunch, as breading for your chicken. The result is, well, it’s pretty much what you’d expect. It’s yummy, crunchy chicken pieces with a subtle sweetness from the cereal. It might take a little longer than using plain old breadcrumbs, but it’s a fun change-up for this classic recipe. After you’re done reading, why not take a look at some Cereal Report posts to pass the time?
