Hallelua! It’s National Raisin Bran Cereal Day!

Something silly to draw about. : ) I do have a favorite Raisin Bran cereal, when I do buy the product: Skinners. They tout themselves to be the FIRST raisin bran. I prefer the brand because they don’t sugar-coat the raisins. Which I don’t understand in the first place. Why all the sugar all over the already sweet-enough raisin, Kelloggs, Post, etc.? What’s up with that..?  But really (as you can see in my cartoon on the matter), just combining raisins with your favorite bran or plain cereal is much better for you. And that’s what I pretty much do.

I had myself come up with a quickie cartoon. The results….

    Making your own combo is much easier, if obviously less dramatic. Which reminds me, today I heard they’re now making chocolate (!!!) Cheerios. Aren’t Cheerios supposed to be healthy?

    I wonder if they’ve arrived in Canada yet?

    Jazz: CHOCOLATE Cheerios? Why does that not surprise me. I think Cheerios thinks itself as healthy but I don’t know why. I’ll have to look that up. Is it really coming to Canada, too? Blah. I myself look for the one or two cereals that have no extra additives. Puffed wheat/rice is about it. Shredded wheat is right behind that, as I mentioned. All if I must do cereal.

    Doug: Hee hee! No, you didn’t! Now YOU look like one who would go for the CC or Count Chocula yourself!

    I love raisin bran, too. I have a bowl every other night or so before bed. It drives Daisy crazy. She just doesn’t understand.

    Paula- I stumbled upon your blog today. I am tickled by the darling illustration and fondness you have for Skinners. It was the first Raisin Bran and unfortunately has been overrun in the cereal aisle. You can definitely order it from us directly. Thanks for being a Skinner’s fan!

    Hi Annelies! Definitely good to know that there is a place to get Skinners if it’s not in any local stores. Wondering if you guys ship to Canada….
