Love me Breakfast!

Another day, another breakfast!

I have a bone to pick with Post.  My favorite cereal of all time was Post Grape Nuts Trail Mix Crunch.  I had it every morning and I even had my hubby hooked.

One day, I went to pick some up at the store and sitting in it's place was another cereal.  What's this cereal doing sitting here in my Trail Mix Crunch's place?  There's been a mistake!  Who's responsible for this?  That day will forever go on as the saddest day of my life {not really, I'm just playing up the drama here}.

We went to the internet in search of our beloved and we left no stone unturned.  Alas, we were still left with no Trail Mix Crunch.  No information whatsoever as to the whereabouts of our beloved.  It just disappeared without a trace!  No funeral service?  No remembrance?  Post!  What's up?  How could you just ditch a wonderful crunchy lovely cereal with no notification whatsoever?   I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.....

Since that unfortunate day, I have been on the search for something to replace my beloved Trail Mix Crunch and that search has not been pretty.  Let's just leave it at that.  

Until yesterday!  I picked up Kellog's Mueslix with Raisins, Dates, and Almonds.

With low hopes I poured myself a big 'ole bowl and covered it with huge organic strawberries.  I delicately poured my no-fat milk as to not disturb my creation and poured my second cup of coffee and sat down.  I was nervous.  Please Kellog's don't disappoint me.  I love me breakfast.

OH happy day!  It was glorious!  Chock full of raisins, glorious raisins and that almond crunch was just what I needed!   My search has ended.  I will forever mourn my Post Grape Nut Trail Mix Crunch but a part of the void has been filled.

Do you have a favorite cereal you couldn't live without?

I was in no way paid for this post.  I'm just a venting consumer who sat down to write a blog post about breakfast and was overcome with a desire to blabber on about my feelings as all bloggers tend to do.  Post, if you're reading this and you have a few boxes of Trail Mix Crunch hiding in your warehouse please email me at and I will email you my address.


  1. What a great looking breakfast! I'm always on the hunt for new ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I hate to admit this but I kind of hate cereal. I can eat froot loops dry as a snack and corn pops but that is about it. I think the issue for me is the milk. I hate milk and am lactose intolerant. I seem to be able to handle some cheese but milk pushes me over the edge.

  3. Glad you found a replacement for your Trail Mix Crunch! I just hate it when products are discontinued without notice! Great little breakfast!
