Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats -- Blueberry Muffin

I don't usually eat breakfast. I time my wake up to the very second so that I won't be late, but maximize the amount of sleep.


Don't get me wrong. I love breakfast food. Bacon, eggs, Sausage, Mcgriddles, etc. Nothing like a cholesterol-laden meal to tide you over. But that would compound the problem of waking up earlier and making breakfast.

Cereal is good for 2 things in this world.

The first is get something in your stomach in a hurry. On weekends, I'll peruse the cereal stash in our house for something to tide me over till lunch.

The true strength of cereal, is to fulfill a need for a sugary snack right before bed. Ask my gut...he'll tell you it's true. Ask any random person's belly rolls...they'll admit the same.

Unfortunately, if you eat the "light-weight" brands like Fruity Pebbles, Reese's puffs, and Honeycomb, you'll find yourself sidling over to a second bowl. Eating some cereal is like mowing down on cotton candy. You'll need a double-dose to feel content.

This is why my wife single-handedly keeps the Kellogg's Mini Wheats franchise alive. She has eaten a bowl of frosted mini-wheats every day for the last umpteen years. She says that it fills her up more than other cereals.

Which brings us to the latest offering in the Mini Wheats family--Blueberry Muffin.
I cozied up to a bowl and noticed the neon-like color of the blue-berry. I liked it...perhaps the flavoring would last longer than other brands in this cereal line.

All in all, it was rather good. Enough sugary taste for a fatty like me, while still giving me some sort of feel-goods that I hadn't eaten sugar puffs in whole milk.

Besides the high carb content per serving (43 g), they do throw in a little fiber for good measure. (5 g)

If you like blueberry, and the mini-wheats are your bag, I'd take a chance here.

As always, I caution you to clear your schedule for a bowl of mini-wheats. If you get an errant phone call, or a need a quick bathroom break, you'll come back to a sludgy mess of wheat germ.

I've been on a huge Corn Pops kick lately. And you're absolutely right. One bowl will simply not do. In fact, I think even if the bowl was the size of a colander, I would need seconds.

In addition, Corn pops is number 5 on "things that make your pee smell."
