Honey Smacks Same as a Doughnut!

Consumer Reports claims that Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal contains as much SUGAR as a Dunkin’ Donuts glazed doughnut. Health officials are urging caution:

"Be sure to read the product labels, and choose cereals that are high in fiber and low in sugar and sodium," Gayle Williams, deputy editor of Consumer Reports Health, told Reuters in a statement.

Good advice, but most cereals are crap! They're PROCESSED foods; filled with trans-fats, artificial ingredients and high levels of acrylamides. Not to mention, refined foods are LOW in nutrients.

Oddly enough, a year ago Kellogg’s started phasing out advertisements aimed at children. I wonder why!

And the donut tastes better! Plus you can get some really good coffee with it.

It's hard to find adult cereal that's low in sugar. I find regular oatmeal made with a spoonful or two of raisins is plenty sweet. If you want to get really crazy put some unsweetened applesauce on it too, or chopped nuts.

If you really want to know what goes into things like doughnuts and Sugar Smacks, read the book Twinkie, Deconstructed, by Steve Ettlinger. It involves some massive industrial processes to make all the synthetic ingredients with infinite shelf life.
