Grape Nuts are one of those food items, like Corn Nuts, that at this stage of my dental journey, would probably end with shattered teeth if I ate them as-is.

Other than that, those probably do taste pretty decent, since lentils make up a sizable percentage of meat substitutes on the market today.

Reminds me of this excellent show. Each episode looks at a different era. From the 70's back to medieval times and even ancient Rome.

Don't confuse the title with anything from Morgan Spurlock

Bleh, I'll probably watch this later.

Genuinely interested in it, but was hoping to just scan an ingredients list rather than watch the video. Not sure why he didn't post one--he usually does.

I broke a tooth on a goddamn snyders pretzel a while ago.. still need to get that fixed. It doesn't hurt, just annoying. Thankfully not a "cosmetic" tooth.

/ain't that America?

Yall got some soft teeth. I'm much more scared of taffy pulling out a filling. Damn you Now and Later. Hell, do they even still make that?

As for this crap, well. I never had grapenuts so I can't imagine, but it sounds too sweet for a real sausage taste. But I won't doubt, I made some good stuff out of old poor people food books. Could go for a tuna burger about now.

I've now removed the same tooth/fake tooth 4 times. And it's a front tooth.

It's gone from half a broken tooth to a pick to hold on the fake tooth to full removal and a rod inserted to hold a permanent fake tooth.

Jesus christ let's go with the last option from the get go. Rather than gods knows how much money at this point in a fake damn tooth.

Also watch where you're running kids cause eating concrete in your younger years will haunt you for a looonnnnngggg time

Grape Nuts at this stage in my life is a no go.  I'm taking water pills and they just suck out all the moisture from the Grape Nuts leaving you with a cement block to expel.

My local Kroger has Grape Nuts. Maybe there was a shortage for a bit?
