If I Could Create My Own Cereal

If you could create your own cereal, what would it taste like? What would you call it?

I guess I would like a cereal that gave me a strong bacon and chocolate flavour. I tried to look out for what weird but strangely appealing flavours are out there. You soon will be able to buy chicken-and-waffles and maple-bacon-doughnut-flavored cereals. But one that I would love to try is the Cookie Crisp cereal which offers sweet flavors for people of all ages. One of the biggest visual appeals of this cereal is its chocolate chip cookie shape. However, it doesn’t taste like an authentic cookie is what I have been told.

As a part of General Mills’ Monster Cereal Lineup, Count Chocula offers a unique twist to cereal with marshmallows. It has ghost-shaped crisps and bat-shaped marshmallows to give it a spooky vibe. Unlike most of the chocolate cereal on this list, it’s only available from the beginning of September until the end of October. Another chocolate cereal that promises cookie-like flavors in every bite is Oreo O’s. Unfortunately, despite its chocolate flavor and cream coating, it doesn’t capture the authentic flavor of an Oreo cookie.

I wonder if there is an eggs and bacon cereal. I couldn’t find any in the quick search I did. Pancake flavoured? Pizza flavoured – ok, I better stop.

Good Places To Drink & Read A Book

Share your favorite coffee shops or places to read a good book.

Not that I have been to a coffeeshop or any place to read in a very, very long time. I just don’t read books anymore and that is a shame. I just don’t find much time to do that and I wish I could. However for quite a while – I would say from 2006 till like maybe 2011 – I used to frequent quite a few coffeeshops and read books while chilling in there.

So during those times the two Cafe Coffee Day outlets – the original one at Shenoys Junction and the other one near Medical Trust were my favourite coffeeshops. Another one was Kawaha Cafe which unfortunately has not survived Covid 19. Coffee Beanz, Fort Cafe and Coffee Cube also were good options but they don’t exist anymore. But yes I have enjoyed many hours in there with a book and some good coffee/frappe when I am not with somebody else.

But the one I really miss is not a coffeeshop but a bar! Oberoi’s bar and attached family restaurant was a favourite of mine and the good thing is when I went in the afternoon, I usually would go in with a book. I would pick a seat next to one of the large windows and move the thick  curtains a bit so I got in plenty of sunlight. Then I could read several chapters of a novel while I drank my beers or vodka + Sprite and ate some good food. Good times!
