Listen: Kellogg, Syria, Hostess Brands discussed on The Empty Bowl
"It brighter news Syria wise this week. We've got the subsiding. It looked the shot that I saw like it was in stores was not in stories yet is peeps cereal. You know, it actually is in stores now really you can find it. Yeah. It's been spotted at target. I think almost exclusively at this point. I think it will come elsewhere. But that's probably your I bet to look if you want to find peop- cereal now, this was another serial that we had heard rumors of like months ago because we found some snack food sort of researchers scientists very elite corps found a product listing for Kellogg's cereal. Peeps. So there was really a battle of semantics back, then what was more likely AP flavored Kellogg, cereal or Kellogg, cereal flavored peeps. Because peeps has done all kinds of crazy varieties before you could totally see them doing like a cocoa Krispies fruit. But then we got this early blurry confirmation of the box. And then finally the real thing here today, it looks kinda dislike selectively hued for lives with marshmallows. But it's the description that really gets me because on the box. They're not even sort of subtle about saying, this is a marshmallow flavored cereal with marshmallows. It's just sort of. I don't know. There were done. See of this weakness is really it's perfect for peeps. Because that's kind of a candy that feel a lot of people have a complicated relationship with. It's very divisive. It can sort of strike fear into the people who really hate that sort of like glittery chewy texture. I don't know how you feel about peeps. I like peeps. Personally in moderation. I think what they're going to have to get is that I think you're right to make it a peep cereal. I think you're gonna have to get some of that granulated sugar texture in there. I think that is such a big part of the of the peeps experience. I feel like you. I feel like using classic mar bits is not gonna cut it. Because I think the experience is going to be too close to eating extremely stale. Peeps now, slightly stale. Peeps. Very good. Extremely good. How long recommend sort of barely aging your peeps for five five three days. Open three day three days open. If you go too far give up, but I think usually three days open. They get a nice chew to them. And it's a whole it's a whole sorta it's much more adult. With a fine Patino. Exactly. So the marveling. It's really nice. Yes. So this is another serial that I feel like kind of the opposite of chicken in waffles, and it's really not gonna have much without some sort of beverage added to it. And last year, they had they released peeps flavored milk, but nobody has spotted at yet this year, which feels like sort of a horrible missed opportunity because instead they released peeps. Coffee Creamer this year, which just really feels like a slap in the face to put those two things. So Jason Lee close to each other yet. No one would recommend that you do it. Maybe next year. We will get sort of a hard liqueur to amp up even deeper. A lot of those big January cereals that. We've been waiting on have been showing up at the doorstep, and we have a bus to talk about cer- not gonna spend too much time on any single one. But I would love to start with. I'm gonna go ahead and call it right now, I think at this point. And so this isn't saying because it's so early, but I'm gonna go ahead and call so far powdered doughnuts. Doughnuts cereal. My favorite cereal twenty nineteen so far it's crazy that you say that because I'm a hundred percent in the same boat. So these were to hostess brands neck, Kate cereals that came from post recently, as well who has really been on a tear, creating these crazy cereals, and obviously it's kind of hit or miss with woodlands in terms of the become common limit of sanity. But so we were kinda surprised they didn't choose twinkies. Cupcakes as their snack cakes because instead they chose Honey bun and powdered Donut cereal now. Honey bun. I I don't know if you've tried that one.."
