Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Bran Flakes Yoghurty
Posted: 12:50 Wed 20-Oct-2004. Price: Similar to Bran Flakes Classic. Location: Sainsbury's, North London . Nutritional unusualness: 1g more sugar, 0.5g more saturated fat than Bran Flakes (per 30g serving).
reports: You've guessed it, it's just normal Kellogg's Bran Flakes with occasional "Yoghurty" coated ones like they put in Special K that time. Biggest
disappointment? (Apart from that the Bran Flakes actually seem slightly smaller - I had a "standard" box recently where they were the size of small potato crisps!) That William Shatner hasn't advertised these on TV to the tune of his epic cover of "Common People" by Pulp (NME page has Windows Media streams of all 4 and a half jaw-dropping minutes of it) - "You want to *live* like All-Bran people/ You want to pooh - what*ever* All Bran people pooh..."
...In other breakfast bulletins: "jude" claims to have paid £6.45 for an unspecified quantity of famed US cereal Lucky Charms at "Let's Eat, Milton Keynes shopping centre"; "Actually quite nice!" was "bmq's" verdict on the increasingly widely available Bagels, Fruit-toast, and Oastso Simple porridge new breakfast options at McDonald's; and I couldn't quite see how they were making a tasty cup of porridge that I bought at the snack shop at Moorgate London underground station the other week, but am I correct in assuming that it somehow involves the espresso machine?

Comment: Let's Eat is, indeed, selling standard sized boxs of US cereal for over ten dollars - they have Apple Jacks, too, and Froot Loops with Marshmallows.
By standard, I mean small, of course.
In addition, you can swap one pound twenty for imported root beer and cream soda. They're also selling Mountain Dew at the moment, although, oddly, they'd previously told us they weren't allowed to for legal reasons.
Milton Keynes, of course, is virtually America these days - we've also go a Quiznos and a Dippin Dots. Not, of course, that that would tempt people here. After all, we've got *roundabouts*, haven't we? Oh... hang on... I think I'm heading off in the direction of a different rant...
