#100BlogFest

Here is something else I am honoured to be a part of. One blogger sharing his childhood memories with 100 others blogs and their readers. Truly spectacular!

By Martin King

We all have memories that we can recall from yesteryear, some huge and some miniscule – but then there are others. What do I mean... others? Well we all remember going to the zoo or being smacked, these are our memories we recall at the drop of a hat. But then they are others that aren’t really about us, they were about how we lived...the little things.

As I tell my stories, I try to keep it in line where possible to the author’s website, so it doesn’t look out of place. As I was reading Pandora’s (or not Pandora), I came across the fact that she liked coco pops. Suddenly a faint memory flickered inside of me. The memory of cereal!

“They’re tasty, tasty, very very tasty, they’re very tasty.” Do you remember the little jingle of Kellogg’s cornflakes? Or what about Tony the Tiger shouting “...they’re great!” for frosties. Then there was the advert for ready break showing two boys walking to school glowing. But then we don’t have winters like that anymore and most kids don’t have to walk to school.

Can you eat three shredded wheat? My particular favourite was golden nuggets. I loved them. You must have a favourite. Let’s not go too far back, what about Kellogg’s pop tarts? Do they still make them?

Another classic was weetabix. I remember having them in a bowl and pouring half a pot of sugar on each one. But another thing we did with them was eat them raw. We called them ‘weetabix things.’ My mother would put some butter and jam on and we would eat them as a snack before we went to bed and for those of you reading this blog in England, you will know what I mean when I say ‘for supper.’

So what was or still is for that matter your favourite cereal?

These blogs are all about fun and sharing. Thank you for reading a ‘#100blogfest’ blog. Please follow this link to find the next blog in the series: http://martinkingauthor.com/blog/7094550076Link
