In the vein of the usual hard-hitting, existential questions that we ask, here comes another doozy: Which chocolatey breakfast cereal do you like best?
- Cocoa Krispies
- Cocoa Pebbles
- Cocoa Puffs
Obviously, this ultra-deep question boils down to the differences between Krispies, Pebbles, and Puffs. The definitions of the cereal types were derived from seconds, nay even minutes devoted to making some stuff up in my head.
Krispies are the result of blasting rice grains with hot air, thus aerating them into the holey, “krisp” form. The hot air consists of 78% nitrogen, 20% oxygen, and 2% cocoa powder, giving the krispies their chocogoodness.
Pebbles come from an ancient Mayan quarry found in South America. This quarry is the only known source of cacao rocks. The rocks are pulverized by a large club wielded by a powerful baby named Bam-Bam, thus creating the beloved pebbles.
Puffs are produced by cuckoo birds that are fed only Hershey’s chocolate bars. The puffs are aged one year in hidden areas of shelves and pantries before being boxed for consumption, thus creating their crunchy texture, which seems contrary to their light, fluffy name.
Cool Mum prefers Cocoa Puffs. She likes their crunch, which stays crunchy in milk. I dislike soggy cereal as well, but I actually like Cocoa Pebbles the best. There’s something about their flavor – they seem to have a unique flavor as opposed to the Puffs or Krispies. It may be a South American thing, or the plastic bags in which they’re stored might just be made out of flavorful toxic chemicals.
Which do you like best: Cocoa Krispies, Pebbles, or Puffs?
