Beyond Froot Loops

We eat a ridiculous quantity of cold cereal, around here. On any given day our pantry has four or five boxes in active rotation. The kids eat it for breakfast and snacks. Sometimes we eat it for dinner when we’re in a time crunch or we’re not very hungry or I’m just plain being lazy.

So I may have done a little jig when I spotted Amazon’s January promotion on Kellogg’s cereals: Now through January 31st, 2007, buy $39+ worth of qualifying Kellogg’s products, and take $10 off your order with coupon code KELLOGG7.

This is a particularly awesome deal if your kids (or you!) like the various individual serving packs, as this is hands-down the most affordable way I’ve seen to stock up on those. (I’m torn, because on the one hand: Buy a big box and some baggies and save your money. On the other hand: They can grab their own perfect serving size without making a mess or waking you up, and you really can’t put a price on that.)


  1. Can I just point out that individual serving boxes more than quadruple the packaging of one big box? So conserving types may want to save that sort of purchase for special occasions and not for every day use.

  2. Great point, Millie. (Like I said, I’m torn about them. Personally, I don’t buy them, but I do understand the appeal.)

  3. What am I missing? How do we know which cereals “qualify”?
