I'd Rather Have A Bowl Of Co-Co Pops

Who's noticed that Co-Co Pops have changed recently?

I loved these as a kid, but over the years they went all hard, nearly breaking your teeth on them, without any chocolately taste like they used to have - they literally years ago were just like chocolate flavoured rice crispies....but over the years went hard, shell like, and really crunchy with very little taste.

However, a few months ago i had some for the first time in ages, and they were just like i remembered them again :D

I am going to write off to Kellogs and thank them, as they have made me a very happy man again :D

    Never eaten them, I don't think I ever will.

    I have a deal with my dentist; I eat porridge for breakfast, he doesn't give me as many fillings. So far, it's working.

    One of my cousins used to put sugar on their morning bowl of Sugar Puffs. Didn't think that one through, did they? :roll:

    I put heaps of sugar on my porridge, it needs something to make it palatable. The problem isn't the sugars so much as the abrasive properties of cereals. According to my dentist (who is the best I've seen), cereals are too hard for the teeth, and especially muesli, even when it's been 'soaked'.

    It's true. The Congo is full of Um Bongo litter. It's a shame that such a beautiful country has had to suffer at the hands of cynical British marketing.
