Doughnut Seeds

Growing up, I was a dedicated fan of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes. If I didnt’ have an egg and bacon breakfast, usually prepared by my mother, I had a bowl of Corn Flakes. I never tired of it. I looked for the gimmicks inside the box. I saved the box tops so I could order magic rings, etc. Even when I was in the Navy, I frequently picked up a box of Corn Flakes from the chow line. However, when Frosted Flakes entered the scene, I began to opt for them instead of the to-be-sweetened Corn Flakes. I gradually became accustomed to the sweet taste and, since they were made by the same company, I didn’t feel as though my loyalty had been compromised. However, for the last couple of years, I have betrayed the Kellogg’s company and have been purchasing from General Mills. The reason: Honey Nut Cheerios. I don’t remember how I was first indoctrinated into this breakfast cereal, but whatever the draw, it was compelling. I now watch for the coupons for this cereal and wish, like my assistant pastor who told the story, that Cheerios were really doughnut seeds and planted would bear doughnuts.
