I'm a label reader. *When I was at the grocery store yesterday I wanted

Oats' in one hand and a box of 'Cheerios' in the other.

A woman had just reached for a box of Cheerios when she noticed me
comparing ingredients. *She asked is there much difference? *Nope,
they're the same. *Except the Publix box of toasted oats contains 14 oz..
and the Cheerios, 11 oz. *And the box of Cheerios costs $2 more.

I've been buying the store brand "cheerios" for years. *They taste
exactly the same to me. *But I *do* check to see if they've changed
ingredients from time to time. *I don't eat a *lot* of dry cereal (what
might go stale gets tossed out for the birds) but I like to have some on
hand.


Well, how ****ing informative, Mrs. Horowitz. Thanks for blowing the
lid off of that one.

*yawn*
