Anyone who has followed my blog for any length of time should be expecting a glowing review of Fruit Loops with marshmallows. While Fruit Loops with marshmallows are heavenly, that’s not where I was necessarily going with this post… Give me a little credit would you?
My favorite pre-ride cereal is Mom’s Best Cereals: Blue Pom Wheat-fuls. Blueberry and Pomegranate icing encrusted mini-wheats.
I like the stuff so much I’m even willing to overlook the fact that they have to charge more for their cereal to offset the cost of their silly decision to purchase wind energy credits against the fossil fuel they use to power their cereal plant. Talk about a twisted web of idiocy… Who knew they could top the Carbon Credit scam?
Anywho, unlike most cereals, it doesn’t take three bowls to fill me up. Just one does the trick, it tastes fantastic and doesn’t leave a nagging weight in my stomach. It’s what I depend on to fuel those long Saturday and Sunday rides: Mom’s Best Cereals Blue Pom Wheat-fuls.
Fruit Loops are perhaps the one sugar cereal that I find disgusting… now Lucky Charms… that’s real cereal
I loved Lucky Charms as a kid… You’ve got a point there.
Alpha Bits and Apple Jacks are awesome too
ALPHA-BITS! Woohoo! I forgot about those… LoL
Mmmmmmm. Magically delicious. . . .
I am a mini-wheats or oatmeal girl … both provide sustained energy to get the ride going. Blueberry Pom though sounds amazing!
It’s good stuff, no doubt about it – and I’m a tough sell.
I used to get by with a fruit smoothie in the mornings but have re discoverd a childhood staple. Weetabix with low fat milk before any ride helps me nail it without the starving hunger afterwards. I even have a supply in my office at work for the return home
Yeah, I can remember the days of skipping breakfast altogether. Simply impossible now.
