I had Gronk Flakes for breakfast

They are like Frosted Flakes only bigger, thicker, Gronkier!

I believe they are only available in local (New England) Stop & Shop's, I got mine in Watertown.

I bought my brother a box for his birthday and he refuses to open the box, thinking they are going to be a collector item. (Yeah, maybe, but not in my brother's lifetime!) So I went out and bought my own box. A tasty breakfast with some sliced bananas and skim milk!

    I had a box of Flutie Flakes that I was keeping as a souvenir, but I got really poor in college and had to eat them. Saved the box though!

      I hope you spiked the box first!

        You spelled it wrong.

        It's GRÖNK flakes.

          Yeah, I have an umlaut deficiency. Better eat some more cereal.

            Penance for misspellers: march around like "that little nutcracker dude" for five minutes. Absolved.

              That was so funny! I wonder if Gronk eats his own cereal every morning? Apparently he grew up eating Flutie Flakes!

            Hilarious. I'm getting my husband a box. Thanks for the heads up!

                They've got them at the Reading S&S as well. Thanks for the report!

                    Yeah, I've been sitting in front of my computer all day, trying to resist the urge to spike my mouse.
