I can't see how something can be "donut flavored". Donuts are nothing but sugar, fat and starch.

In addition to the damage to the roof of your mouth, if you eat a 1/2 box of Capt Crunch All Crunchberries, then sleep and forget about it, when you go to the bathroom the next day, you WILL freak out.

Never ate Capt Crunch again.

I checked the Capn's crunchy nutrition label but found no mention of fiberglass leavings or diamond shards.  And yet I still lose a quart of blood with every bowl and still see a beam of light on my tongue when I stick a flashlight up my nose due to the hole this cereal bored through the roof of my mouth.

I can accept that cereal can have a Cap'n that valiantly fights against an anthropomorphised quality of said cereal, but I'll be dead in the cold cold ground before I accept donuts being crunchy. NO BUYS.

No it isn't.  Overindulgence is.  I looked up the nutritional info.  If you ate 2 servings at once, it is only about 220 calories.  Add a cup of milk, you get about 350.  And that's with whole milk.  350 calories doesn't seem like a terrible breakfast.  An egg mcmuffin has 300 calories, not counting the hash browns.  The problem is people eating half a box at once, every day.

My mom was a bit progressive for a mom in the 70s. She barred all sugared cereals from the house. She convinced other moms to follow suit. The kids in the neighborhood hated her for a while.

When I attended college, the dorm's cafeteria stocked a cereal I had never seen before: Captain Crunch. Good God.

Oh to return to those days, return to a cold autumn morning with a blood-orange sun sparkling through a stand of old oak trees, walking quietly to class, thinking about Milton's fields and Spinoza's God-space, absolutely positvely jacked out of my crackling mind on coffee and Captain Crunch.

No cereals allowed with sugar as the first ingredient at my house.

But I think it was Lucky Charms that I went nuts on as a college freshman.

Mmm, grad school...those sweet halcyon days of popping a couple Vivodin before getting blasted out of my head with triple espressos and an anti-anxiety pill.

Sure I was a little jittery, but by three in the afternoon I was finally coming down and ready for a tub of Frostred Flakes..and two sandwiches...and a swimming pool of gumbo... (I had the munchies is what I'm getting at.)

I disagree with you to an extent. Calories are good in the sense that they can be used to quantify the energy density of any given food.  However, the notion that one must count calories or take in less than one expends goes against everything that is known about biochemistry. Your body doesn't see food simply as calories. It sees it as the various macronutrients which make up the food you consume: namely sugar, fat, and protein. Your body metabolizes those three components in completely different ways.

If I were to eat a quarter pound worth of bacon, that would be on the order of around 800 calories, equivalent (by your reasoning) to eating 7-8 servings (~6 cups) of this particular cereal. But look at just one huge difference in the composition of that food: with the cereal I would be consuming around 160g of carbohydrates. With the bacon, zero. You think that the body is processing these two foods exactly the same, just because they have identical caloric content? That quarter pound of bacon won't even register with regard to insulin secretion, whereas the cereal will cause your pancreas to go into overdrive.

Additionally, being meat, the bacon will provide you with around 20g of protein, keeping your hunger levels down. The cereal, almost zero. After succumbing to the inevitable sugar crash, you'll be hungry again in no time.

And that's part of the real problem - we consume way too much sugar in everything that we eat. It's in everything available to us in the grocery store. Our bodies did not evolve in the presence of such unprecedented access to carbohydrates. Our genes have developed over time to efficiently utilize the proteins, fats, oils, and carbohydrates found in fruits/vegetables (and their associated high fiber contents, which prevent overconsumption).

So yes, you are right that overindulgence is part of the obesity problem. However, it is not overindulgence of calories. It is overindulgence of carbohydrate-rich foods. Isocaloric does not equal isometabolic.

I'm curious what data that doctors and researchers are using to determine that Erica has an obesity "epidemic". This is purely anecdotal, but I'm 6' 220 lb male and according to BMI, I'm obese. But I'm in excellent shape. I work out regularly and eat well. No doctor has ever suggested that I lose any weight at all. If data is included in the report, it goes under the obese column.

If they aren't using BMI to determine this, then what are they using. I know we don't have enough body composition data on enough people to determine how many of the supposedly obese are really just more muscular.

By that rationale, I can replace my meals with 3 tablespoons of kerosene.  As a very long winded farker who read a paleo book pointed out, there is more to the human body than simply burning calories.

I agree that moderation is key, but eating sugary cereal every day is still a bad idea.  Get a box or two a year.

my entire airforce career was spent either on the verge of being in the "fatboy program" or, in my airforce reserves time, on the "fatboy program". granted, by the time i was in the reserves i HAD gotten a bit pudgy...
but when i went in active duty i was by far the thinnest i'd been since i was about 5 or 6. i am 5'8 1/2", and when i went into basic i was ~160lb (down from ~195 less than a year before). no muscle. i had cut way back on food intake, on top of having an outdoor job in southern arkansas heat, plus i had been playing clubs in a band. due to my small neck and ever-present love handles, i BARELY passed the "tape test" every year

Sorry, you were looking in MY pantry by mistake.  Wait ... you don't have Trix listed there.  Carry on, then.

I will buy this new stuff the moment it hits the market. I just quit smoking so I can pretty much justify ANY caloric indulgence for the next six months or so.

And if you used meth in moderation, you'd be fine. The problem with most of this engineered junk is the same - it's designed to make you eat more and more and more. If you're eating whole wheat cereal with no additives, you're OK after a bowl. With this stuff you eat three times as much. Any dietitian who even mentions "calories in calories out" should be barred from ever working in the field again.

Oldiron_79: bungle_jr: tylerdurden217: I'm curious what data that doctors and researchers are using to determine that Erica has an obesity "epidemic". This is purely anecdotal, but I'm 6' 220 lb male and according to BMI, I'm obese. But I'm in excellent shape. I work out regularly and eat well. No doctor has ever suggested that I lose any weight at all. If data is included in the report, it goes under the obese column.

If they aren't using BMI to determine this, then what are they using. I know we don't have enough body composition data on enough people to determine how many of the supposedly obese are really just more muscular.

my entire airforce career was spent either on the verge of being in the "fatboy program" or, in my airforce reserves time, on the "fatboy program". granted, by the time i was in the reserves i HAD gotten a bit pudgy...
but when i went in active duty i was by far the thinnest i'd been since i was about 5 or 6. i am 5'8 1/2", and when i went into basic i was ~160lb (down from ~195 less than a year before). no muscle. i had cut way back on food intake, on top of having an outdoor job in southern arkansas heat, plus i had been playing clubs in a band. due to my small neck and ever-present love handles, i BARELY passed the "tape test" every year

maram500: August11: My mom was a bit progressive for a mom in the 70s. She barred all sugared cereals from the house. She convinced other moms to follow suit. The kids in the neighborhood hated her for a while.

When I attended college, the dorm's cafeteria stocked a cereal I had never seen before: Captain Crunch. Good God.

Oh to return to those days, return to a cold autumn morning with a blood-orange sun sparkling through a stand of old oak trees, walking quietly to class, thinking about Milton's fields and Spinoza's God-space, absolutely positvely jacked out of my crackling mind on coffee and Captain Crunch.

Mmm, grad school...those sweet halcyon days of popping a couple Vivodin before getting blasted out of my head with triple espressos and an anti-anxiety pill.

Sure I was a little jittery, but by three in the afternoon I was finally coming down and ready for a tub of Frostred Flakes..and two sandwiches...and a swimming pool of gumbo... (I had the munchies is what I'm getting at.)


Ah espresso. I reached a high-water mark of about three pots of coffee per day in grad school. When I look back, I am surprised my heart did not explode.

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: sniderman: ertznay: Screw that, when are they going to bring back Cinnamon Crunch?

Yes, yes, a thousand times, YES.

Who the fark is Jean LaFoote?


Cap'n Crunch's nemesis back in the '70s, always trying to steal that delicious Cap'n Crunch cereal, part of a nutritious breakfast! (And mouth shreddin'...)

Don't you know anything about 70s food nemeses?

/Next you'll be asking me about The Duke of Doubt and Captain Crook.

The jingle "They are little, crisp and light / With a crunch in every bite/ New Donutz! They're dough-licious!" just returned from a thirty-year hiatus in my head

In related news, Dunkin Donuts recently announced two new donuts available in February: Heart shaped cookie dough and brownie batter donuts.
