In the Thrifty Three-Pound Box

Today Ann, who is on the verge of her 4th birthday, said to me after finishing a bowl of cereal: “Could I have some more, please, sir?”

“Who are you, Oliver Twist?” I said back, though of course she ignored that. A more fitting response would have been MORE!?! but it hardly seemed called for over a bowl of Blueberry Muffin Tops. I gave her more.

Blueberry Muffin Tops, by the way, is a NEW! cereal (says so on the box, but the web site says since 2004). Available in a three-pound box at Costco, though it’s subdivided inside into three one-pound bags. A product of the Malt-O-Meal Co., Minneapolis, which I had no idea was still an independent company. I’d have thought it would have become part of ConAgra or Altria (Philip Morris) or the like long ago, but no.
