    Some Cereal History

    Americans at the time of the Civil War were increasingly plagued with gastrointestinal issues due to their unhealthy, meat-based diet. Reformers of the 1860s viewed too much meat consumption as unwholesome, both physically and spiritually. It was believed by some that a high-protein diet contributed to lust and sloth and that constipation and other maladies of the gastrointestinal tract were God’s punishment for too much pork and beef.

    But before cereal took on loads of sugar, cartoon characters as marketing mascots and high profit margins of today, it was a food product of quite a different animal. Cereal back then was quite literally hard to swallow. Made of dense bran nuggets the cereal was so hard it had to be soaked overnight to make digestion not so taxing. Its taste was pretty bland, too.

    I don't eat it any more, but my favorites were:

    Cap'n crunch until I eat too much and shred the top of my mouth.

    I also like cinnamon toast crunch the milk afterward should be bottled as cinnamilk.

    Apple jacks are strong and I like "healthy" Raisin bran.

    I can't have cereal that I like around the house because I would eat the entire box in a day.

    I eat less and less of it.

    Smaller boxes, less product and more air - but the prices go up. F them.
