Eh, I grew up with them.

I think they fell out of favor because of fears of salmonella with soft-boiled eggs. You can't get them in American restaurants any more.

We lay our own eggs, my reptilian queen and I. It's a bit of a chore getting them out from under the skins of our victims, but they really are delicious.

smurfs cereal was the best ever.

currently, a huge fan of cinnamon toast crunch, and golden grahams.

my step-family kept a mixture of cinnamon/sugar to put on butter toast. it's very yummy. i should bring that to my house.

i saw someone give that to their kids on Tv and have been tempted to try it ever since. i figure it's probably pretty good but on the other hand i'm a little afraid of the fluff. just seems weird to me.

i have to eat breakfast. a lot of the times i eat even if i'm not hungry. it's just what i do. i usually eat when i get to work so it's something easy and quick like muffins or banana bread or a breakfast cookie or yogurt w/fruit.
at home i may make myself scrambled or fried eggs depending on my mood. we eat cereal a lot but it changes what kind. what is in our house is usually what was on sale. i cannot let myself spend more than $4 on a box. even that much kills me. sometimes i make oatmeal w/brown sugar and butter.
on sundays we do a family breakfast which usually entails pancakes or french toast and smoked bacon from the butcher that is so so good.
at my house we eat breakfast for dinner a lot and if we do that i'll make a potato "hash" with peppers and onion topped w/cheese.

It's hard to find FLUFF up here, and when you do, it's invariable expensive. I remember we used to get it when we would vacation in Maine, and my six year old self loved it to death. I'd love to try it again and see if I can still stand it... and seeing as I also love strawberries, I'd totally be willing to taste the pink Fluff... but maybe before I spent $6 on a jar.

I remember once finding a jar of that stuff in my parents cupboard. I think it was probably 5 or 6 years old even then. I don't think anyone ever ate it. I don't think it occurred to me to even TRY to eat it.

When I was ten, I gave it to some people who came to the door needing it for a scavenger hunt. And that is the sum total of my life's experience with the Fluff.

I can't believe the things you guys eat for breakfast.

Dude, I'll send you a case of the white stuff, if you want it,
and not that cheap Kraft crap...
I hate strawberry Skittles, and strawberry Starburst, I always give them away...
They just don't taste as good as the real thing, and I feel the same way about pink Fluff...
Blame my grandma for making me strawberries in syrup with sour cream for breakfast...

That shit ran about 5 bucks-a-pop for a little box that probably contained 3 bowls of cereal.


Oh HELLS YEAH! That was the BEST! Nowadays, I prefer Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Fruity Pebbles.

Occasionally I branch out from my twigs into Raisin Bran....but seriously, have you tried raisin bran lately? WAAAAAAAAAY too many raisins. It's pretty much eating a spoonful of sugared raisins with a few bran flakes thrown in for color.

Pretty soon they'll take a cue from Oops All Berries!, and make Oops! All Rainsins!

BAH humbug.
