Fruity hoops suck

As a consumer of many parts of a balanced breakfast, I have this observation: I was in my friendly neighborhood supermarket and made a recent discovery. If you purchase a name brand cereal like, Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes or Lucky Charms, you may get a prize. The prize consists of some kind of decoder ring or car etc. Prizes that are actually fun. The back of the box you can have all sorts of fun with mazes and other games.
Whereas on the generic brands of cereal ie: Fruity Hoops, Flakes of Frosted Corn and Charmy Luckers the prizes you get are educational. In one of them you can get laminated Multiplication Table a Ruler or a Protractor. On the back of said boxes you can learn vocabulary words and their Latin origins. What the hell? Who wants to learn at breakfast. Give me my sugarfrosted, diabetes-inducing, carb filled bowl of joy and compliment that with a toy that will only stunt my mental growth. That is what breakfast is all about.

In conclusion, Long live Toucan Sam not the Generic Fruity hoops Monkey.
