More grocery snapshots

Fancy a Rice Bubbles treat anyone? Erin? I had to throw in the box of Milkies bars, Pea's favorite snack. It's described as "a creamy banana mikshake flavoured filling wrapped in a soft muffin coating." I've not tasted it, but it must be fabulous because The Pea loses her shit whenever she spies the box in the pantry. The bovine flatulence on the back of the box cracks me up.

Wait... you haven't tried the Milkies? How can you deny that which is described as a creamy banana mikshake flavoured filling wrapped in a soft muffin coating????

You are the zen master!!! Look at that self control!!!

If you ever have one, please let me know what it's like

The Rice Bubbles sound gross, but I would buy the Milkies for the farting cows alone!

Something about the combination of the words "muffin" and "coating" creeps me out. How does one "coat" something with muffin? It sounds like it involves a liquification process and a spray gun, which are not necessarily culinary preparations that entice me.

But the farting cows are to die.

The Milkies description sounded a little dirty to me...

No wonder the Pea loses her shit over the Milkies. The cows told her to.

And, mmmmm, Rice Bubbles!

Are the Rice Bubbles the same as Rice Krispies?

Raina said...

Yep. Same cartoon mascots too. The third dude, "Pop," is obscured by the Milkies box.

Why Kellogg's thought "krispies" wouldn't translate is beyond me.
