Gentle Readers, in case you were not aware, Team Practical Cook, as a unit, loves cereal. We are committed to trying all of it. Yes, all of it, one box at a time. Okay, many boxes at once. In this quest, we get a new cereal almost every week.
Feel free to join the quest, submit suggestions as we go. We’ll highlight some favorites, and acknowledge the lows as well. As a long-time Buffy fan, I can’t believe I had never tried Weetabix before. (Bonus points for my fellow Whedon-ites who can name that scene that references Weetabix’s textural properties.)
I digress. It’s a cereal, it’s a biscuit, it’s relatively healthy, woohoo! Except, it dissolves into mush. The Practical Cooks Junior, ever adventurous, took the challenge, and both dismayed over the texture in milk. Warned by them, I added way less milk and ate fast. The flavor is not bad at all. The Eldest Practical Cook wisely ate her second biscuit dry.
But I’m left wondering–how is this cereal traditionally eaten? Is mush part of the appeal? I really like the simplicity of the cereal, and will probably convince TPCs Junior to consume the rest sans moo, but it was unappetizing in milk in a matter of seconds.
So send in your Weetabix ideas, I’ll keep trying. Post a comment below, or Tweet #cerealquest at me! And it’s Reader Question time on Friday. Submit yours today!!
