Todays entry is for the whole week that I have been subjected to Kellogg’s Honey Loops, I haven’t felt too good so have been having very early nights and not updating the site so apologies to the 2 or 3 people who may possibly have noticed. I started the Kellogg’s Honey Loops last Thursday and was extremely excited to try them, I had been having some of the less favoured types of cereal in granola etc so was looking forward to a simpler flavoursome cereal, my goodness I was disappointed. I thought these would be covered in sweet honey providing me with a crunchy treat of a breakfast with a kick of joy. What you actually get are crunchy rings of cereal that don’t taste heavily of honey. They taste like someone has eaten some honey, waited 10 minutes then licked the rings of cereal, there is a slight taste of background honey flavour but really disappointing. They simply do not have the classic Kellogg’s quality taste. Highlights of the week included a pleasant mixture of sun and rain which now pleases me as I’ve reached the age where I think “well at least my veggies are getting a good watering.” and my wife insisting that the main reason she couldn’t apply for The Apprentice is because she can’t write whilst travelling in a car. One effect of the very disappointing Kellogg’s Honey Loops is spontaneous over reaction and excitement. We were in the lounge, I was lying on the floor and my wife was sat on the sofa watching ‘Child Genius’ it was the final, Holly had been watching this programme, I had not but I understood that these were meant to be super intelligent kids essentially being tested to find the best one, it came to the winning question, it was mental arithmetic (my forté) the guy read the question out and I answered it almost instantly, the girl (who eventually won) took ages then eventually said the same as me, I was correct I got it right, I was proud and delighted, so delighted that I threw the Sky remote in the air without a thought that my wife was behind me, it flew through the air and smacked her on the knee. She wasn’t best pleased, I don’t know what happened but it must have been something to do with the Honey Loops, mustn’t it? I have not enjoyed Honey Loops and I am glad that I won’t be celebrating my 200th day of the quest eating them tomorrow.
Here are the vital statistics for Kellogg’s Honey Loops:

Pros – Crunchy, nothing more.
Cons – No taste, a huge anti climax and clearly to blame for the bruise on my wife’s knee.
