Cereal Simplicity

Almost every week there is a single bite that stands out to me…a mouthful of food that completely satisfies my search for good grub.  It is a perfect meal that  leaves me smiling… where even the after-shock of burps that may follow are pleasant experiences that bring wonderful memories of that ‘Best Bite.’

Often times the ‘Best Bite’ of the week is something over-the-top…It may be an amazing home-made dinner that was carefully crafted, or an elaborate sushi platter from one of the city’s best restaurants, or even the perfect pie using tired-and-true recipes.

Cereal in all its simplicity.

BUT, other times, the simplest things can be the most satisfying!
This week, a humble bowl of cereal was exactly what I needed. No…the cereal was not ‘home-made,’ the milk was not organic, and not even sliced banana was added to the bowl…It was simply cereal.

There are many cereals to drool over…there are the classics and then there are crazy international creations. And we all have our own cereal addiction….but here is another cereal to add to your shopping list: Barbara’s Peanut Butter Puffins. This stuff has a strong peanutty taste and a solid crunch that holds up even after soaking in milk for a bit. The cereal is pretty healthy too by being low in fat and sugar, especially when compared to competitor’s peanut flavored options (I am looking at you Reese’s Pieces). the only problem with Barbara’s Peanut Butter Puffins is that it is pretty damn pricey and that a ‘full’ box quickly becomes an ’empty’ box in a scary-short amount of time.

Remember breakfast is important and too many people choose sleep over food… so get yourself some of this stuff and you may never ignore your early morning meal again.

    I once had a friend that called cerial ‘People Chow’. Not sure why, but this reminded me of it.

      I LOVE THAT TERM….I think I might start referring to my breakfast bowl as ‘People Chow’ !

        Usually, in the cerial aisle, if you look at the bottom shelf, you can buy some of your favorite brands in bulk in bags. Very much like buying pet food.

        Hopefully you NEVER get those two type of bags confused-haha

    I love Puffins! I kind of want to try making a pie crust out of cinnamon Puffins, though I’m not sure it’s possible

      Wow. a puffins crust would be amazing!

      I like to take the last bit of PB puffins crumbs from an empty box and use them to top everything from yogurt to ice cream and pudding.

    […] for taste, if I want a purely nutty taste, I have to go with some peanutty decadence in the form of PB Puffins. But if you want something that offers that grainy taste with a nice nutty vibe, that ALSO delivers […]
