Throughout my childhood, most mornings spent at my dad’s house started off with filling my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bowl to the brim (at least once) with some saccharine-sweet goodness. Like any cereal addict, I had certain rituals for eating my favorite, Lucky Charms:
- Eat all the cereal pieces.
- Group the marshmallows together by shape.
- Eat each group one by one, in jingle order (“hearts, stars, horseshoes, clovers and blue moons, pots of gold and rainbows, and red balloons”).
- Repeat ad nauseum (literally).
What were your morning gustatory rituals as a child? Were you allowed to eat sugary cereal, and if so, which types are you most nostalgic for?
