I do let them eat those frozen waffles, so I'm not sure why I won't buy the cereal, but I never have. I also refuse to buy cereal that is miniaturized cookies or donuts or whatever (I did ONCE buy Cookie Crisp, but that was an anomaly).
This is how it looked when I served them
It was a surprise all right. A surprise to find out that your cereal and milk were FROZEN! April fools!!!
You simply prepare a little bit of cereal & milk the night before and freeze them. Let them sit out of the freezer a short time before serving. Add some more milk and cereal to camouflage the frozen goodness and serve your children a lovely, surprise breakfast.
As a bonus, they actually got to have the real deal, freezer-free.
