The FDA Classifies Cheerios as a Drug
This bit of news has been making its round around the Internet for a few weeks now, but it you haven’t heard, the Food and Drug Administration is classifying the cholesterol-lowering cereal as a drug.
In a letter to General Mills from the FDA, a passage states:
“Based on claims made on your product’s label, we have determined that your Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal is promoted for conditions that cause it to be a drug,”
Since the marketing of the cereal focuses on the claim …
Did you know cereal was created in the 1800’s? Neither did I!
Here’s the first paragraph of the article:
During the early 19th century, most Americans subsisted on a diet of pork, whiskey, and coffee. It was hell on the bowels, and to many Christian fundamentalists, hell on the soul, too. They believed that constipation was God’s punishment for eating meat. The diet was also blamed for fueling lust and laziness. To rid America of these vices, religious zealots spearheaded the country’s first vegetarian movement. In 1863, one member of this group, …
I love to eat Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, but for the past 6 months, I switched over to eating Kashi cereal because I was getting bored of it. Well, this morning, I was perusing the cereal aisle and I noticed a new variety of Honey Bunches of Oats. Was this product going to bring me back to my HBoO roots?
Not exactly. So what’s it like? About half of the flakes are covered in chocolate, and the oat clusters seem to held together with chocolate as well. …
Kelloggs is shrinking the box sizes of several of their well known cereal brands by an average of 2.4 ounces. So if you’ve been eating items sold under the Apple Jacks, Cocoa Krispies, Corn Pops, Froot Loops and Honey Smacks brands, be prepared to pay the same for less. This move was fueled by the rising commodity and energy costs.
I was at Whole Foods looking for some Kashi Heart to Heart cereal. They were sold out, prompting me to look for an alternative. Looking up and down, left and right, the Whole Foods Organic Brown Rice Crisps caught my eye. I was a fan of Rice Krispies while I was growing up. I would pour half a jar’s worth of sugar into the milk and cereal to make it super sweet. I don’t do that anymore as I’ve realized that processed sugar is not good for your body. These …
I mentioned in an earlier post that I got banned from eating Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Oat Cereal because it crunches too loud. Well, since I’ve been banned, I had to look for an alternative cereal. It’s probably not the brightest alternative, since it has the word crunch in the name. I’m talking about Kash GoLean Crunch! Cereal. It’s louder and crunchier than the other cereal. I’m sure to annoy a few more extra rows of cubes while I’m munching on this …
So I pretty much got banned from eating the ‘Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Oat Cereal’ at the office. The reason? I was crunching way too loud and it started to annoy my coworkers and neighbors in the adjacent cubicles. I’m impressed, it took them two weeks before they said anything. Hey, tt’s not my fault that the cereal is full of wholesome crunchy goodness! Now I can only eat my cereal when no one is around. Looks like I’ll be eating breakfast at home in …
There are two things I hate about cereal. It’s expensive and I go through an entire regular sized box in half a week. Still, I love cereal. In fact, I can’t live without cereal. I’ve managed to ween myself off of Corn Pops and other high sugar cereals, but where did that leave me? Cheerios is good for you but had no flavor, Honey Nut Cheerios was too sweet for me. Honey Bunches of Oats was good, but I only liked it …
