hmmm. I'm gonna be honest- I feel really good about all of that. Marshmallow fluff? Peanut butter M&M's? Aunt Jemima? That's the makings for a nutritious and delicious breakfast. :D hahaha

I am totally on board with Reese's Puffs representing my culture.

So do Britons not have sugary cereal in their own aisles???

and you know i ain't gonna complain about lucky charms! they do have sugary cereals but they are of a different variety and have amazingly awesome names if they've an american equivalent.

so kellogg's 'ricicles' are frosted rice krispies. 'frosties' are frosted flakes. 'shreddies' are like chex. my favorite is 'curiously cinnamon' which is just cinnamon toast crunch.

agreed! i'm not so sure about the strawberry fluff though. have you ever had it? is it any good? there are multiple varieties of strawberry milk available at the grocery, so maybe the brits are just really fond of pink flavors?

so british cereal names are just a step closer to sounding dirty. RICICLES??
