The Cereal Quest: Day 102 – Out with the Old, In with the Mue-sli

3 days is all it took to get through a box of Kelloggs Coco Pops Coco Rocks cereal, 3 days and 6 portions.  Not the advertised 13 portions, not even half the advertised 13 portions.  It took Jesus 3 days to rise again after his death on the cross.  It took me 3 days to finish a chocolate based cereal.  This in a nut shell is why Jesus is better than me.

I will cherish the servings I had of Coco Pops Coco Rocks.  They were a lovely way to celebrate 100 days of the cereal quest.  With their crunchy balls and their chocolate spread filled ovals mixed in to be found and enjoyed sporadically they brought me much joy.

Here are Coco Pops Coco Rocks vital statistics:

Cereal Cost:  £2.69.
Real Servings per Box: 6
Cost per Serving: 44.8p
Pros – Full of chocolate flavour, moreish, crunchy.
Cons – Not the cheapest cereal in the world.

One door closing (Coco Pops Coco Rocks) led to another door opening, the door opening led me to a return to muesli, more specifically Alpen No Added Sugar.

Muesli has a special place in my heart, my guilty pleasure.  I love the taste (pleasure) but my wife doesn’t like me eating it as it makes me particularly ill (guilt). I have already had Alpen right near the start of the quest so was excited to see it back in my bowl.  On opening the box I was impressed.  The tab which keeps the box shut when not in use is really sturdy, its trustworthy and reliable, so much so I could happily transport it to and from work in my trusty Nissan Almera Tino without even securing it with a seat belt, however as I am a law abiding citizen and I consider that on lone journeys my cereal is as closest thing to a passenger (aside from my ukulele) that I have that I should make sure it is belted in.  I had a bowl of Alpen No Added Sugar in the evening before a meeting and to be honest I just felt there was something missing from normal Alpen but right now I can’t seem to put my finger on it.

Alpen No Added Sugar, there just seemed to be something missing.
