As a kid, watching Saturday morning cartoons … I’d regularly settle into a bowl of Corn Flakes and watch commercials for Count Chocula and Frosted Flakes dance across the screen.
My mother NEVER bought these cereals – never even considered it.
And, you can be certain … her decision had nothing to do with dietary concerns over sugar content.
Her decision was 100% price driven!
So, imagine my delight, one Saturday morning … when I opened the cabinet and there … before my very eyes, stood a box of Cap’n Crunch!
I immediately determined there was no way Cap’n Crunch was making its way into ‘regular rotation’.
So, I instantly learned the concept of rationing.
Cap’n Crunch became a 10-year-old boy’s delicacy – enjoyed only on Saturdays – never during the week!
I’d fill a bowl with Corn Flakes and then strategically place 5 Cap’n Crunch pieces on top! (I think I managed to stretch that box to nearly 6 months!)
