Listen: Ono Dan, Syria, Steve discussed on The Empty Bowl
"Yet. You just kick it off with sort of the internet breaking story of this past week. Yeah. It's very hot very now. Yes. So you mentioned there is no hard hitting news. But this is definitely some heart hitting news. So I got this this rumor on my blog in sort of the comment section a little while back when I was talking about how waffle crisp rest in peace, by the way, had recently been discontinued. But somewhere in the comment section mentioned how I'm going to get sort of a revival come national cereal day, which if you not familiar is March seventh of every year creeps up on every year. But I didn't really know what he meant by that. And he left another comment regarding some sort of southern comfort serial involving waffles. So it didn't really take too much effort to piece together what he meant by that. It seemed like sort of a very like worryingly specific thing to start a hoax about. So I kind of just took it on its face that that would be real since. I was you know, I still have half a box of sour patch kid Syria on top of my fridge. Really anything's possible. So I kind of just let that Steve for awhile. I reached out to him, and he wasn't giving any hints until Instagram account called Canadian candy hunters posted this picture of Honey, brunches of oats, chicken and waffles cereal. Made in Canada releasing in the US for national cereal day. It's so. Dan. When I I saw this story appear on Syria, Leslie dot net. My first thought was Ono Dan's been fooled by a house. There is no possible way that this serial is is is a real thing on earth for starters. What company changes the name of the right pun? That's not how brands work you don't like turn them into puns for a single product that that's so strange. I know it's just. Of all things to choose the Honey bunches of oats brand because it doesn't really resemble that cereal in any sort of common in a logical way. It's got these literal chicken drumstick shaped pieces that are just you know, this rusty Brown. Coupled by what looks like waffle, crisp pieces, and that's what immediately cosmic caught my interest is that. So this is what waffle crisp died for. They've really had a need to use the world last remaining supply of waffle, crisp or I guess and make something like a bold statement like this maybe to sort of, you know, reestablish themselves as the company without cereal boundaries at this moment. Do you find the idea of this serial repulsive? On the face of it. Yes. But once you look deeper into it. Yes. It's just. Yeah. You can't leave flavor. You can't put meat flavor. My prediction is of course, that the meat -ness of the chicken and waffles is going to be a very fin sort of hint of savory nece. Right. Like, it's not gonna be a real chickeny chicken flavor. But it's still you just can't you can't do it not in a flake. Please. Yeah. I don't really know why they decided to go so far with it. I also heard a rumor that it will be accompanied by a maple bacon Donut cereal as well. Don't have visual confirmation of that yet. But if you just considering the exponential growth in ridiculousness between sort of this hour patch kids, and then to here, you have to imagine that the next step is going to be like banned in several states. The very least. It's completely think. I hope. I would like to say that that will be brave enough to try it for this program. But I can't I can't promise that, Dan. I honestly can't. I mean, I'm definitely gonna try it. It's not made with real chicken ingredients. If you recall, but. I guess I mean, it's worse. Yeah. I don't know. Listen, my main has is that if you pour milk into it will the end milk be gravy.."
