f is for flakes

it seems like every time i go to whole foods i pick up a box of this cereal and put it in the cart, only to put it back on the shelf because it is too expensive.  but yesterday?  yesterday it was on sale!

it wasn't until i got home that i noticed this little gem on the back of the box:

Spelt Flakes, "a Living Legendary Folk Cereal".  One of the first grains to be grown by early farmers as long ago as 5,000 BC, "nutty" flavored Spelt combines with fruit juice sweeteners in this whole grain organic cereal to offer you a good source of fiber and a low fat way to revitalize and energize your body.

living legendary folk cereal??!?  uh......what does that even mean??

all i know is that this cereal tastes almost exactly like wheaties.  and i love wheaties.

now if only i could have normal milk.....

That's some pretty flowery cereal box text.

how expensive is it on a non-sale day? enough to expect a folk musician or band to jump out of the box? that's what i think of when i read "legendary folk cereal." i wonder if bob or arlo are consumers of the spelt?
