I had Gronk Flakes for breakfast

Jpan99 Nov 6, 2012 08:54 AM

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!

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

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

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

            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!

                I hope you spiked the box first!

                  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!
