Serving sizes? Wow. Okay, a small box of Cinnamon Life has twelve servings. So I filled three normal sized bowls and the box was gone. That’s incredible. I can understand how a modern bagel is much, much larger than a normal bagel from the 50s, which are now called mini bagels, but a bowl of cereal is a bowl of cereal. It’s already evident that the amount of food we’re getting for our dollar is less and less. You’ll notice this in bags of chips. A half of a gallon of ice cream went to 1.75 quarts, now down to 1.5 quarts AND the price nearly doubled. It’s crazy. It’s disheartening. Velveeta. Wow, I saw a large brick of for $13. Seriously? That little $3.99 brick is now $7-8. Talk about food inflation. Velveeta is not even cheese. Maybe it really is made out of crude oil? What has gone down in price? Soda? I have seen sales for twelve-packs, three for $5. Has it always been that cheap? I have no idea, I don’t usually buy it.
Back to cereal. I bought my Cinnamon Life, buy one get one, for $4.59. Both boxes combined are seemingly equivalent to an old box of cereal. So basically to get the same amount of cereal, today I would normally pay over $9. That’s INSANE! I don’t even eat marshmallow cereals. It is freaking flour, sugar, and cinnamon. PLUS, this cereal is aerated. It’s not even solid. So ingredients go further. I feel like we’re all getting John Shaft’d here. I’m not being gluttonous. I’m wondering why three normal bowls of cereal need to cost $1.53 apiece. I buy cereal every once in a while. Parents buy cereal constantly. That’s crazy. Here I’m complaining about some Quaker brands, go to the “organic” section. Ha, two boxes of cinnamon vegan bits and three goat tit yogurts, $37. Repressed.
