Sugar cereals of our youth


A look back at a misspent youth.

We were never allowed sugar cereals growing up until youngest-child Gideon became old enough to mercilessly pester our mother at the grocery store — I’d guess that would have been when he was about three, and suddenly we had Sugar Pops, From Loops and Captain Crunch in the house and on the breakfast table. We also had no TV in the house until Gid came along, so we didn’t know what we were missing.

Gideon went on to a very successful career selling real estate.
