Dear Cap'n Crunch

I have never really liked you - you cut up my mouth and you leave this nasty sugar film on top of the milk. However, you found the one thing that would make me CONSIDER consuming you. Driving to work today, I passed a Carl's Jr. and saw you have become a featured shake at that fine fast food restaurant (if you followed the link, click on desserts and the Cap's Crunch shake is top of the list).

Truth - the thought of you blended in with ice cream topped with whipped cream makes my mouth water a little, but you don't fool me. Partnering with my one guilty pleasure - the one thing I usually never refuse - ice cream. Bravo on the marketing tactic. Cap'n Crunch + Ice Cream = No brainer (aka marketing success, right?)

Sneaky. Sneaky. But I see right through you. I'm suspicious that you will still manage to cut up my mouth with the cereal bits that are sure to be left unblended in the shake.

Nice try.

But I still think you are one of the most vile cereals on the market.

See...this is where you and I differ. I love me the Capn' Crunch, and I've passed that love on to my son. Well, at least I loved it until baby #2 decided that he/she didn't. Hence why Keegan got my whole box of it and developed his love. I don't think I'm willing to try it in shake form though.

Val, I could not agree with you more about the good 'ol Cap'n swashbuckling my mouth! He's a big reason why I don't eat sugary cereals.
