Do you remember eating Cheerios as a kid? I do. I don’t mean as a baby, although I’m sure I received my fair share in a snacky cup or at a high chair. But I have distinct memories of sitting at the round table in my kitchen eating Cheerios on Saturday mornings while watching cartoons (remember those?). I may have put a spoonful of sugar on them (or three or four), I was a kid after all, I did that with everything. Well, not with roast beef or sandwiches, mainly I just mean breakfast cereal. Sugar on roast beef or a bologna sandwich would be gross.
My mother calmly looked over at me and said “try them without putting sugar on them.” So, I did, and I was in love, with Honey Nut Cheerios.
Sadly, Saturday morning cartoons and Schoolhouse Rock are no more, but my love affair with Cheerios continues to this day (and I have Schoolhouse Rock on DVD). And I have shared that love of cheerios with my daughter. Even at seven years old, it’s still one of our go to snacks. The wife is constantly telling us to pick up our stray Cheerios that we drop on the couch (the dogs get the ones that drop on the floor). But whether they’re in a bowl with milk at breakfast or eating them out of a box on the couch (after she has washed her hands. Ok, after we have washed our hands). Cheerios are something we love and we love to share.
