  • Make womb for breakfast! 'UTERUS-shaped' cereal aims to normalise conversations about periods at the breakfast table

    A 'uterus-shaped' cereal has been launched with the goal of putting conversations about periods on the table. Feminine care brand Intimina developed its raspberry-flavoured 'Period Crunch' to encourage families to discuss menstruation more openly at breakfast. Despite being marketed as womb-shaped, the cereal actually resembles the entire female reproductive system. The wheat-based cereal — a PR stunt which won't actually ever go on sale — is dyed red to mimic the colour of blood. Intimina claims conversations about periods are not 'truly normalised' and it wanted to 'make a statement' about the issue. Although it won't ever be stuck on...
  • Kellogg Raises Sales Forecast After Hiking Price of Cereals

    New York Post ^ | May 5, 2022
    Kellogg raised its 2022 forecast on Thursday, banking on more price increases to help counter the impact of supply shortages stemming from a workers’ strike at the company’s US plants last year and the war in Ukraine. Shares of the Michigan-based company rose 4%, after it also beat first-quarter profit estimates. Costs from freight and ingredients such as wheat, corn and edible oils have surged in the last year due to pandemic-induced disruptions to the global supply chain, forcing the packaged food industry to raise product prices to cushion the hit to their profit margins.

  • How Cereal Became the Quintessential American Breakfast

    03/30/2021 12:08:52 PM PDT · by mylife · 55 replies
    Chances are, it's never struck you as particularly odd that there's an entire supermarket aisle devoted to nothing but cereal. For most of us, cereal is the ultimate convenient breakfast, and even the most sugary of varieties claim to offer nutritional benefits and a balanced start to your day. Every brand is trying to convince you it's something different, something better, and there's probably at least one you're buying into. The "kids only" sugar bombs boast whole grains, and Special K comes studded with chocolate bits and sweet yogurt clusters. But it wasn't always that way. Cereal's position as America's...

    Breakfast doesn't always get a lot of attention. When parents are trying to get their kids ready for school and need something quick to put in their stomachs, cereal is often the go-to. With dozens of cold cereals aimed at kids, there's plenty of variety to choose from and among the most iconic of breakfast cereals is Cap'n Crunch. The bright red box with the mustached mascot in a captain's uniform has been promising a sugary and crunchy cereal that won't get soggy in milk for over 50 years. Cap'n Crunch is one of those cereals that these days, is...
  • 2017: Joe Biden Recounts Nearly Wrapping a Chain Around a Gang Leader Named Corn Pop’s Head

    Joe Biden told a harrowing story during an event in 2017 about facing down a razor-wielding gang leader named Corn Pop in his youth by threatening to “wrap” a chain around the man’s head. The incident came back into the spotlight over the weekend when footage of Biden’s remarks began circulating social media. The former vice president, who has come under scrutiny in recent weeks for embellishing portions of his personal and political life, told the story when being honored with having a community pool named after him in a Wilmington, Delaware, historically black neighborhood. Biden had reportedly been the...
  • Twitter Users Needle Donald Trump For His Claim You Need Voter ID To Buy Cereal

    Trump then lobbied for voter ID with a bizarre statement that left many people scratching their heads. “If you buy a box of cereal — you have a voter ID,” Trump said. “They try to shame everybody by calling them racist, or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID. But voter ID is a very important thing.” As anyone who has purchased cereal might have noticed, you don’t need to show ID. Still, that didn’t stop Twitter users from milking the president’s comments for laughs.

    The White House says the changes could save $214 billion over a decade. “The Budget proposes to combine the traditional retail-based SNAP electronic benefit with the direct provision of nutritious and 100 percent American-grown USDA Foods to participating households. This cost-effective proposal maintains our commitment to helping needy families avoid hunger while generating substantial savings,” the budget said. Households receiving $90 per month or more would get a portion in shelf-stable milk, ready to eat cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit, vegetables, and meat, poultry or fish. The remainder of the benefit would go onto the debit card...

    You may want to rethink having that bowl of corn flakes for breakfast. New research by experts at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles show that cereal is making people obese. Published in the journal of Nature Communications, the paper states that chemical ingredients commonly used in breakfast cereals are having distressing effects on our bodies. Looking at the effects of three different chemicals commonly ingested or exposed to humans, they found that each one was damaging the hormones needed to communicate between our brains and our stomach. When all three were combined, the damage was worse. One of the...

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - Police need help finding a woman who poisoned her husband's food for months and then skipped town before her sentencing date. Andrea Araceli Heming, 49, pleaded guilty to tainting her husband's food with a substance called boric acid. The poison is usually used to kill cockroaches. "It slices your intestinal tract from the throat down," the victim, Ralph Heming, said. "If you start passing blood or spitting up blood, you're dead."

    Hillary is now speaking with ManBearPig at Miami-Dade College in Kendall, Florida. You can watch it HERE yet amazingly even though this is the busiest of feeds, LESS than 500 watching now. Compare that to Trump speeches which have over 20,000 watching on just one feed. Anyway, your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to estimate the paltry crowd size at this speech. Hillary started right off claiming that there was an overflow crowd. Really? And how small was this venue?

    Tiny Toast is designed to appeal to younger, health-conscious consumers because it's one of the few breakfast cereal on the market flavored with real fruit and has no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or colors. It will join the Minnesota-based company's already formidable lineup of cereals that have been part of American breakfasts for decades such as Cheerios, Trix and Lucky Charms.

    Why aren't millennials eating cereal? Apparently, it's just too much work. Almost 40% of millennials surveyed by Mintel said that cereal was an inconvenient breakfast choice, because they have to clean up after eating it, reports the New York Times. Instead, younger consumers are turning to convenient options with minimal cleanup that can be eaten on the go, from yogurt to fast-food breakfast sandwiches. Cereal sales dropped 5% from 2009 to 2014, despite the fact that more Americans are eating breakfast than ever before. ...
