Breakfast of Champions

There was an article in the newspaper today about how much sugar is in cereal. I've always known there's a lot, even in the "healthy" cereals. I've never cared. Mmmm sugar. The article compares how much sugar is in various cereals and chocolate bars.

They try to convince you cereals are bad by saying: "You'd never consider a Kit Kat for breakfast, but it contains no more sugar than at least one popular cereal."

Hahahaha seriously? I've had chocolate bars for breakfast many times!! Chocolate is great. Why not start the day with something so yummy? I do admit I don't do this nearly as often as I did in high school now that I'm more health conscious, but it's still not unheard of. I'd like to think I'm not the only one out there who's done this.

I'd also like to point out that yes, cereals have tons of sugar, but it's really unfair to compare them to chocolate bars. Chocolate bars are loaded with bad fats (mostly sats now) and cereals have at least some nutritional value to them. To conclude, all I have to say is stop dissing my Count Chocula!! ;)
