There’s Chocolate in My Cereal!

In the US, we add so much raw sugar to our cereal that our teeth begin to rot before we even take the first bite. Dentists cringe when they walk the aisles of our supermarkets. “Breakfast” we label it, even though we all really know that it’s just an excuse to eat more dessert.

The Germans take this “dessert for breakfast” idea one step further. They cut to the chase. Instead of hiding the sugar within the cereal they just put the actual dessert right in there with the cereal.

And so, on a recent grocery trip, we discovered “Schoko-Honig”: a honey-rice puffed cereal mixed with flakes of real milk chocolate. A healthy start to the day? No, not at all. A divine treat for the rare special occasion? Absolutely. Yum.

What is your breakfast food weakness?

    Yay! Chocolate cereal. I remember this wonderful treat from Switzerland. I know it’s not an every day thing but soooo good. 🙂 Enjoy!

    I love hot chocolate at breakfast – especially since I am not a coffee drinker. But from your picture the best part is seeing the name on the box: Cerealien. What I saw was Cere-alien!
