TV Dinners: The Breakfast Club - Pixy Stix Sandwich

In honor of national candy month, I thought I'd pull out a classic candy-related TV Dinner clip for us all. Do you remember the lunchtime scene in The Breakfast Club? Molly Ringwald confuses Judd Nelson with sushi, Emilio Estevez has enough food for a large family and Ally Sheedy perplexes everyone by tossing the pimento loaf out of her sandwich and replaces it with Pixy Stix and Cap'n Crunch cereal instead? If so, then have I ever got a treat for you! Not only do I have the recipe to recreate your own Pixy-Stix sandwich, but I've got the clip as well! To check it all out,

Pixy Stix Sandwich
From The Breakfast Club

1 slice white bread
1 slice wheat bread
2 Pixy Stix (flavored sugar in straws)
2 handfuls of Cap'n Crunch cereal

  1. Butter slice of white bread. You can also butter the wheat slice if you want.
  2. Pour contents of one pixy stix evenly onto white bread slice.
  3. Pour contents of one pixy stix evenly onto wheat bread slice.
  4. Sprinkle handfuls of Cap'n Crunch evenly onto white piece of bread. Smash cereal down with your hands.
  5. Repeat with wheat bread.
  6. Carefully put slices together, and enjoy!
  7. Wash it all down with a Coke!

Hilarious, but I'll pass. I think I might have done this when I was 5, though...

HILARIOUS. The Cap'n Crunch always made me curious...

It's delicious!! I would recommend every one try it. You could probably substitute another sugary cereal for the Cap'n Crunch. I always think rice krispies with sugar and peanut butter (and marshmallow, obv) is delicious.

I used to think it was salt she was putting on the sandwich - this sounds much better. If I liked Cap'n Crunch, I'd give it a try.

I never noticed that she had one slice of white bread and one slice of wheat bread! That's even funnier! Still, I probably don't think I'd eat this one. But it's good to know what goes into making it!

I used to do this with peanut butter and regular sugar when I was in college. Yum. Breakfast of champions.
