Well... It is supposed to start shooting in mid-June, but over the weekend, the adaptation of the Stephen King-classic It, has lost its director, Cary Fukunaga. It is a shame, isn't it? According to Deadline, the True Detecti...

I'm not sure what to think about yet another reboot/prequel/whatever the hell this is, but Pan looks amazing. It's directed by Joe Wright, it's got a great cast with Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, and Garrett Hedlund, and I don't...

I have a hard time figuring out exactly who Pixels is made for. Is it for the man children that Adam Sandler has spent his entire career trying to sell to, or is it for folks who'd recognize videogames in general? In the same...

Although I don't remember liking The Maze Runner too much, I did appreciate what it did differently from all of the other Young Adult book films floating around. A testosterone riddled film full of run and gun dumb action. It...

One of my biggest issues with X-Men: Days of Future Past was how many characters it tried to squeeze into its movie (which is why I'm always worrying about the sequel, Apocalypse, which is ramping up that number everyday). An...

Snaxist: Kellogg's Avengers: Age of Ultron Cereal

Apr 30 // Nick Valdez
A little bit of background. I'm a cereal connoisseur, and I've spent the greater part of my life eating all sorts of sugary, life threatening cereals. From the ill-fated Oreo O's, King Vitamin, and Rice Krispy Treats, to the always welcome Waffle Crisp (RIP). Basically, I've worked for years on fine tuning my palette so I'd like to think I know a bad cereal when I eat one. But that doesn't mean I don't dig in on Malt-o-Meal every now and then. Oh, boy I better stop beating around the bush then and get right to it. This cereal isn't terrible, nor is it fantastic. It's aggressively average. That's the saddest cereal could ever be.  If the name didn't inspire any confidence, neither did the cereal's box itself. The front was clearly just bad photoshop, and the back had a neat little decryption puzzle, but nothing about this was screamed effort. The cereal itself is basically a generic Lucky Charms. But where Lucky Charms makes an effort to at least mold the little marshmallow pieces into distinct shapes, this cereal does the opposite. The marshmallows are all circular: one green, one blue and red, and one red. As you can see in the image below, the rest of the cereal is like if Alpha Bits only came in squares. Are Alpha Bits still a thing? I miss Alpha Bits. The amount in the box was enough for four bowls (but only three man sized ones), and I only paid three dollars so it was pretty much what it was worth.  As for the milk, I have some lactose issues sometimes so I always drink vanilla almond milk. It's fantastic stuff. I'd highly recommend almond milk over this cereal. I don't mean over as in on the cereal, but like instead. Do you get what I mean? I like milk. Anyway, where does the milk come out of? Is it just a name or is there a guy whose job it is to milk almonds? Or is it like a crushed almond juice or something? Would that be just a general paste then? That's why I only drink the flavored ones. The chocolate one is the worst, however.  Anyway, don't eat this damn cereal if you don't need to. But do drink milk. Heard it does a body good.

This is the kind of promotion I've been waiting for. When I started Snaxist with Max Roahrig (RIP) some years ago with Denny's ill advised Hobbit Breakfast Menu, it was the fact that'd I'd be able to talk about cereal someday...
