Curevac’s Covid-19 Vaccine Disappoints in Clinical Trial
"All right. Let's kick off the podcast with a kind of a dish on the week's news and we should definitely start with cure vac Meg what happened to curevac co vaccine. Yes this was hugely surprising wednesday afternoon. The news came of the company's results from their late stage. Clinical trial of forty thousand participants of another rene vaccine and of course with the success of madeira advisor. The expectations were very high that the efficacy would be very strong and it was forty seven percent now. The company cited a large number of variants. That were in the trial though. Wasn't clear the exact impact of those various on the efficacy. And there's some speculation that it could be the differences in the vaccine from modernize and visor biotechs damian. You looked into this pretty deeply. Yes so not all. Mr nays are created. I shouldn't say equally the same so pfizer and medina both use an approach to work in a tiny modification that is meant to basically avoid the immune system from attacking the marnie strand that you insert curevac used an unmodified marnie for its vaccine and the company's reasoning was you know for an mri therapeutic. Yes sure you'd want to avoid an immune system reaction but for a vaccine an immune system reaction is kind of the name of the game and so that was kind of their thesis going into it but as a result of using the unmodified marnie. They used a smaller dose than pfizer. Madrid Which most likely was to avoid any kind of too much of an immune reaction and so a lot of people. Curevac didn't say this and they haven't provided really enough detail on the data in question for us to really dig in but there is a theory going around out there that enserch of this kind of goldilocks dose of this unmodified. Marta they might have had simply too weak of a vaccine to get the kind of efficacy numbers that we've seen from the pfizer vaccines.
Harriet Tubman, the Ultimate Outdoorswoman
"Everyone knows harriet. Tubman as an activist and freedom fighter. We all learned about her in school. Growing up how she led slaves to freedom on the underground railroad but there was a lot more to her than what you probably remember from history class. She was a daughter a wife an entrepreneur and she was something else too. When you think about it she had to be the ultimate outdoors woman. Do what she did. That's right an outdoors woman. We don't often talk about. Harriet tubman in that light. Or if we do. It's kind of cautionary tale. Her experiences in the outdoors must have been so awful. So why would any sane black person wanna go into the wilderness voluntarily it feeds into the narrative. We often hear that african americans are not outdoorsy. But what if there's more to the story. What was harry. Its relationship with nature. How does that shape. The way african americans with the outdoors today and how might a closer look at harriet. Offer a new perspective on who belongs outdoors victoria. Marin has the story so this story was inspired by a podcast called following. Harriet which is about harriet. Tubman the show pulls back the curtain on harry. It's life giving listeners. A deeper context to her story. A story that i think is more layered and probably more relatable than many people realize most of us enter. Harriet tubman is life when she was in her thirties forties fifties and often times. We don't sort of think about how she came to be. Harriet people of my generation people who grew up in the nineteen seventies. We first met harriet in a photo in the corner of a textbook. She looked old. Her skin was stretched tight on her face. Her mouth was pinched. Her head was wrapped in a dark. Kerchief

Exactly and What does it look like sure. So old growth forest. There's kind of the the official definition. And then there's a y you think of when you hear the words old growth for us so the official definition is that on the coast where where the growing season is longer in tends to be wetter. That trees that are older than two hundred and fifty years are considered to be old growth in other parts of the province. It's trees that are one hundred and forty years old. But i think when when people think of old growth imagine those kind of icon ick photographs of these enormous cedar. Douglas fir trees that are as tall. Skyscrapers in is wide as a boss. The the old growth forest because the trees are so large the kind of the light filters through them in a different way they're draped in mosses and lichens and just kind of fallen logs. Over centuries have become nurse logs for for other trees but the the will growth force are much more than the trees. Of course there. Hot spots for bio-diversity their home to all kinds of species including a species at risk of extinction that to depend on these forests on the interior of b. species like a caribou on the south west mainland part of bc.

"Health is becoming front and center and for very good reasons so talk to us a little bit about virtual health. How are you guys adding value to the ecosystem.

I found it extremely frustrating experience as many people. Do and the one thing when the you know the individual ultimately ended up passing away. And i think the one thing that i really had difficulty with was the first one was high risk. There were forty year. Smoker ended up having lung cancer. You would think that if you're proactive in healthcare you would suggest maybe a just a basic x ray lung x ray right and if you've been able to discover this early you know that person still beer which is obviously the most important thing but i also have spent we also have saved the Health systems and the amount of time spent the waiting rooms and dealing with chemo. And the amount of money and resources were taxed from from a system that's over and then having the insurance companies spending millions of dollars for end of life care when it again. If they had been proactive. It wouldn't have had to spend that money right so for me. It was just a very simple concept of if all of our incentives are aligned. And we're all lying to find conditions early especially in high risk populations in. Why aren't we being proactive. And white we all work together. So that was my my impetus to start virtual health inspiration which was basically the technology that we're using for aging place it also could be utilized for any type of high risk ovulation. Obviously the elderly in a part of apple also people who are underprivileged underserved and using data to essentially detect those high risk individuals and intervene at the proper moment to save healthcare system.

A in the market recently. How about the company's order situation and quote with translated answer reading quote the company strictly abides by the customer's confidentiality requirements.

"forty" Discussed on The Empty Bowl
"Cornflakes. And it's really delicious and we usually make it for easter or other big holiday catherine Thanks for your show. Hey oh this is a bear north carolina than pronouns at. I don't really remember. This is kind of cereal recipe. You're asking for because i'm kind of drifted on the sleep right now. Extra wonderful podcasts. Thanks thanks for making it But my favorite sword cereal Like thing of made has has been as just a bowl. Cereal some stuff in. But it's the The banana raising prey on less Milk a little bit of cold. Cold brew concentrate While notes some regular bananas and a scoop of peanut butter chocolate chips. And it's it's like a whole it's like a like a smoothie of monopoly is great. Thanks for the podcasts. I love that energy bringing it reminded me of Sleep with me. Which if you haven't listened to it as a massive. I i mean for me was a big influence on this podcast hosted by housekeeper who does It's just boring podcast. Stories to put you to sleep. I was definitely getting like some of that energy from from paris. Listen to sleep with me by the way and you're still awake by the end of this show And you're trying to find a way doesn't falsely highly highly recommended Did you have a. I hear you had a recipe. Wanna share them yes. This is one that i heard about From friend of the show. Kim who has sort of a very unique addition to checks. Mix that when i heard about it. I thought this so insane that i've never done this before. But it's basically just like you take normal checks mix. But i don't know if you've had these before you add the sesame out brand sticks that they so Those things are so good. And they. When i think about them in a checks context it reminds me of sort of like the ride ships. They have in the package tex-mex because both of those have this sort of just almost like burnt bread sort of richness to it when you when they melt into your mouth and i just can't stop thinking about how good of a tex-mex edition that would be and how much now recommend that even if she also i'm told Reduces the pretzel count in her checks. Mix as well. Which i know. You're you're pretty vehemently. Anti pretzel checks. Mix yourself so. Yeah wasn't sure if i wanted to breach that started topic here because i love the pretzels personally. I don't wanna get into a lawyer huge into but hey speaking of mixes I i have this Found this caramel snack. Mix on all recipes. Which if you go to all recipes dot com and search for caramel snack mix. You will know it because it is the one that has a description. I've memorized because i've read it so.
"forty" Discussed on The Empty Bowl
"List. There are only nine ingredients. There's whole grain oats honey rice. Sunflower seeds dried apples almonds. Coconut oil. Seesaw and cinnamon now the actual eating experience of apple pie cereal. You really only taste one of those ingredients. Which one do you. would you think it would be. What do we cinnamon no even less likely to appear in a real apple pie and it is honey. These are like. I made a joke that they should have called honey crisp cereal because it would have won been a delicious piece of wordplay into it would have been far more accurate because i don't get a lot of Cinnamon out of it. Unfortunately this is for serious supposed to be about apples and cinnamon. It's managed to be the most honey flavored cereal i've ever had more honey than honey nut. Cheerios more honey than honeycomb. It's just all like genuine literal floor. Oh honey look you would get straight out of the golden bear squeeze bottle and i will say that there are things to like about the cereal. I kind of like the real honey profile especially when you get into milk Because it adds a bit of a caramelized effect to the pie and there's also a really really strong crunch with these flakes but at six hundred ninety nine a box. I feel like i've been misled. Even though i didn't pay for it you know. I just didn't that at seven dollars. You could probably buy like a box of the apple cinnamon. Honey bunches of oats or two of those boxes And probably have a much better time. what better time did you have a better time chocolate honeycomb i did but this one also brings out like my inner stand up comedian. Because i'm wondering what's the deal with all the pouched cereals lately So i think we talked about either in the previous episode of the before it about honeycomb releasing these big bites of both normal honeycomb and chocolate honeycomb in pouched form and they're supposed to be bigger pieces thinking this might be just like a copycat of the kellogg's jumbo snacks that came out recently shirt right but it just seems like for the past decade really serious companies have been obsessed with capturing this sort of mythic on the on the go breakfast or audience trying to make cereal more snack. -able mobile and portable for something that never. I never really had trouble carrying a box around and shoveling out dry handfuls in the first place. Yeah so you end up with these smaller serving sizes. Like i i was eating some cokes. Jimbo snacks today. And i was disappointed to see that there were only twenty two literal fruit loops in one single pouch I think chocolate honeycomb faces the same problem. Where you're paying about the same amount that you would forbach a box of cereal. And you're getting about three four bowls worth of cereal so again. That's like a dollar a bowl but we're talking about the actual serial itself. Chocolate honeycomb is something that has been out in the past. And it's pretty solid. It's not it's no strawberry honeycomb. It's not my favorite of the varieties But i think it's it's similar to cocoa puffs but with a better sort of more pillowy texture I would say if this were in a normal size cereal box for normal price. Sure go ahead and try it. But as it stands. It reminded me a lot given the shape of honeycomb reminded me a lot of the chocolate eggo cereal that we discussed in our last episode. And i think because chocolate honeycomb lacks a lot of actual honey flavour and the chocolate ago. Nevertheless happened to have this good buttery nece to it. I can't help but compare the two and think that Chocolate ago is the winner in my book Yeah i had the same. I know we're going to talk about a remix here in a second but i to see a similar issue with the patches of the i got the cinnamon toast crunch or your mix And it seems like the the portion sizes so it's so strange to sort of decide on that for you ahead of time Because you know. I what i did was i opened them up and put them into a bowl and then i ate them. Which is you dry. Just the regular inches. If immerse it was good it was really good. That just sort of like. I wish it was a serious i don. I don't need it individually packed for me. Sorry but you were going to talk about toast. Crunch chocolate caramel remix which is a mouthful in addition to being an awful i assume so yeah also saw the remix pouches at my local store and they come in three different varieties. I passed on the basic cinnamon toast crunch one. Because if i recall correctly it's cinnamon toast crunch squares cinnamon toast crunch. Rose and vanilla checks all in one pouch and for me. It's like if all you're really offering to. The equation is a mix of existing cereals. Might as well just do the mixology myself. And there was the same thing with the second remix pouch which was golden gram s'mores Go gram squares. Cocoa puffs and marshmallows. Which is something that general mills probably should have been making a decade ago because other companies have done the same formula and done very well. But that's beside the point. Because i picked the third remix pouch which features chocolate toast crunch aubanel checks and caramel corn pieces. And yeah What i learned. And this is something that i learned also from the cereal some of the serial algae heb cereals. We tried as well as the smart food. Cap'n crunch mix that popcorn and a serial. Context is totally underrated. Yeah sure you've got the whole and colonel issue that's definitely sort of downplays. The rapid munching factor. I think the caramel corn really made this stuff like it made me think how embarrassing comparison like cereals that tried to be caramel. Corn are because i know there was a caramel corn cap'n crunch also that was only. Okay like why not go the extra mile and put some actual caramel corn in there because it adds this really robust buttery pop. That's more authentically caramel than i've seen in most cereals and with something like harm corn too. I also poured it into a bowl with milk and found that the caramel corn has this natural like milk proof armor to it that kept it from getting soggy at all. So yeah it's an amazing. It's an untapped innovation scuba divers. It's driving them crazy. How they can't match that technology but yeah. If you're willing to deal with the smaller serving size i think this is definitely a. I can't say definitely because i haven't tried the others but i think this is a really good remix variety and i would encourage a cereal maker to make a full size. Popcorn based serial without any questions asked now. I'm completely in the dark about this. Next one wonder works. What's what's that so wonder works. Is general mills attempt at you know sort of cashing in on the big up. Cereal market. that we've discussed in bits and pieces over many episodes of this podcast. You're your magic spoon. Your cereal schools your three wishes and all these cereals that are trying to make it. More appealing to a grownup by you know Having less sugar or more protein or appealing to specialized diets or whatever Obviously don't subscribe to all that. And i'm just trying to get the download on which of these flavors might be the best or if they're worth trying at all And that said no. They're not really worth trying at all. And the case a one cereal They come in three flavors. Peanut butter cinnamon and chocolate. They are also priced at six ninety nine a box Which is a very steep entry tag for something that texture wise is really threw me. It's like chewing on overly flowered cookie dough. It's just really really powdery. And it sort of ways down your tongue and palate that way so you have this like vick. Barrier that flavor has to cross before it even reaches your taste buds and the case of these. The flavor was just not strong enough especially with the peanut butter and cinnamon. I think the chocolate comes the closest. It's kind of like a a light. Cocoa puff But even then. I don't know what it is manufacturing why they found some puffs that were straight up naked without any flavor dusted on them. At all It was ten generally enjoyable. But i think if you're looking for akito friendly cereal better off Supporting independent cereal makers like magic spoon or the cereal school because i think they.

"If you're a fan will chocolate aga- ceo become my new gold standard waffle base cereal If you're looking for chocolate cereal maybe a chocolate go cereal which i also tried recently unfortunately lacks any maple nuance To be fair the box never really claims that it will have maple flavor but it's kinda what you expect out of an cereal So besides the lack of mabel. I think chocolate eggo. Cereal does a lot of things right and kind of sets it apart. Such self apart from the likes of cocoa puffs by having a base grain made from wheat oat flour primarily so you know that gives it a very dense earthy in solid crunch and off of that comes a pretty familiar chocolate flavor. That you'd get out of lake again. A cocoa puffs or Cocoa pebbles but when it's got that hardier crunch and it's also got a buttery sheen of sorts Doesn't have really bonilla but it's got like that buttery syrup nece So it's basically everything you'd hope from chocolate cereal without the maple touch Yeah it's not super memorable but like as a chocolate staple i could see it. Upsetting certain other Cereal veterans in my pantry we Ask you find folks to we talked about miniaturized foods in cereals sub-genre of cereal. But this is a weird sub-genre of podcasts. So hey I feel like we've earned it. We asked you. What food would you like to see miniaturized in syria and these are your responses hello. Dan adjusted my name. Is mickey and i use she or they pronounce my idea for a miniature. She is serial is inspired by a caller. You had on the last episode. I think a wonderful miniature serial would be miniaturized red being balls a small toasted sesame ball filled with a little little.

"Shea toast crunch. It looks pretty similar to a lot of other limited edition. Toast crunch we've seen in the past but in this really really delightful burnt sienna. Sort of goldenrod hugh and This is kind the first time that we've seen an american soldier. Delay chase cereal in about ten years. Which was when dole delay. Cheerios came out. And i don't really remember a lot about those off to admit that i was writing about this. I had to look again. Exactly what ultra delayed shea really is and if you're like me and are curious it's basically what carmel is made by cooking down. Sugar and water slowly indulge. a delay. Che is slowly cooking down sugar. Plus so yeah you can actually make your own dulcie. Say delay che if you put It's a. It's a real thick caramel syrup. But you can also make your own They'll say if you put Sweetened condensed milk into like. You can slow. Boil that like literally in the can You can slow. Boil that and Make your say delay. I've been offi pies and stuff like that or are you a big fan. Is that why you think this is going to be the serial of the year. I just love the combo that caramel flavor. I love the idea of like. They'll say delay trae slight j. like bring it bring in And i also think that like reaching outside of strictly american flavors now like dosa delays most like exotic exotic reach. but like. It's certainly a little bit more intriguing than like another pumpkin spice or apple cinnamon or whatever. Sure someone did bring up interesting point though. Is jay toast like an actual thing or do you think cinnamon toast crunch is out stepping the boundaries of its original blank. Toast inspired combos. Yeah i feel like that. Ship sail with like blueberry and strawberry tests crunch like through. Who was that being if nothing else. I hope this bodes well for return to peanut butter toast. Crunch which is still my favorite of all time. Here's hoping next up a sticking in the world. Caramel with caramel corn pops. Does that sound familiar to me for very good reason because last year when kellogg's debuted it's jumbo snacks line which was he's pouched versions of some of their famous serials and they made the pieces oversized to be better for snacking and one of the four. So you had your fruit loops. Apple jacks frosted flakes and then the fourth one was jumbo corn pops but they were caramel corn pops but also they used Like a puff sphere texture. Which is what you would get from canadian. Corn pops and You know obviously different from the american corn pops which are very very unique. The only cereal that has like this sort of half deflated popcorn type texture. That's really weird but also really weirdly enjoyable and so now we are getting caramel corn pops. Officially which will use that familiar limply chewy texture and have this baseball themed box. Sort of going off the whole Cracker jack's angle. And i guess we can probably presumed that because of that it will release around april when the mlb actually starts up makes sense. got more speed you mentioned chamber snacks. We have more nba sacks news. How about a jumbo news lately. So i i wasn't aware that the jumbos next line was extremely successful but it must be in that coexist making a big deal about adding some of its other famous serials to the lineup and I'm actually kind of proud of them this time because the two that they're adding are kind of like be team cereals for them. It's not the ones you'd really expect from them. We've got s- moore's and cinnabon cereal coming to jumbo snacked form send bonds barely a serial like. It's weird that such weird paul. While there are conic brands cinnabon one looks pretty straightforward like oversized pieces of the serial But the smallest one is a bit more interesting because smarr cereal has these sort of chocolate grand pieces and marshmallows but they ditch the marshmallows for the jumbo snack version and then took their pillow squares. Which are really great. It's why likes more cereals. Because the texture of those and sort of punched a hole in the middle of them so they look more like oversized. Jeff cereal pieces. Which is again a very specific. Callback to You know kellogg's lower of old. But i think that it'd probably still be really good. You don't get a whole lot of each jimbo snack pouch. it's kinda why haven't really bought them again. But if you want oversight cereal. I think this is one right Gosh see that last. One tricks finally a product that captured us the bold flavor drags. It is interesting though. Because this is the first i think of. The tricks actually released easter related product. Which seems kind of like a no brainer for a rabbit frontier cereal but this year. We are getting tricks fruit snacks. And it's really hard to say whether. I think these will be good ahead of time just because when it comes to fruit snacks i feel like you're either gonna get really really good. Gummy like type furred snacks or the really like chewy chalky like a grocery store brand. Its next which just get wedged into your molars. Yeah i know. Do you have a favorite kind of fruit snack. Gushers gushers. yeah what i like about. Gushers is the addition. The texture thing in the love that that liquid center A big fan of all of all that gum. Gum central of that I also like the. They're pretty sour. Which i think helps to offset the The Sort of like cloying nature of the candy mannequin remember. The last time had a gusher. Feel like one of the things that i'm afraid to try again just because it i don't know if it'll be as good as i remember it. That's my problem with. Scooby doo fruit snacks. Which were always my favorite as a kid. And you try them now. They changed up the recipe whole bunch. And it's it's just really sad. So i hope that Tricks fruit snacks are more like the former and the latter going to get into reviews For our the new releases I'm worried that i'll forget so. I wanted to mention that. I of our beloved listeners. Actually sent me maybe. They d two Two entries from heb which which is honestly one of heb which is sort of. I guess they're mainly texas based in that in that area but one of the most exciting cereal manufacturers going there cereal's line we talked about Extensively and get this they blow listeners. Sent me a whore chata Like chris rice cereal. Her chata crisps. It's called which basically like Rice krispies with like a sweet and cinnamon kind of thing but also a trace leitch as oh boy cereal which had flakes Some of which were all which was. Sugar frosted but some coated in yogurt. Yogurt arm guide younger. Cut the absolutely fantastic. I just plug for these cereals and.

"Spring is on the way and with it the blooming fancy of i forget the thing but the important thing here is that this is a podcast about serial and it's getting somewhat warmer which makes life somewhat more tolerable here on our hemisphere. Welcome to the empty bowl. a meditative podcast about serial. My name is justin mcelroy. And i mean cereal enthusiast. My name is dan. Gilbert and i am a Probably one of the closest things to a real life cereal mascot dan. I'm freaking out over here. A you know i am. Just there's i'm sure the listeners can hear it in my voice but i am so excited. It's been a little bit since we recorded due to a life and I mean people can hear it in my voice. But i'm actually just freaking out with all these amazing cereal headlines. We've got to talk about today. Your voices crackling like a bullet krispies. Anticipation yeah i. I can't wait and you know what. I'll be a little bit more assertive than that. I'm trying to do that my day to day life. I need you to hit me with that. Serial those Right this second so this first year. We're gonna talk about. That's new and upcoming is one of the most fun cereal names to say that i've heard in a long time. And the full name of cereal is shack in tony's frosted flakes with crispy cinnamon basketball's so out of all of the people in the world to get their own sort of cereal team up Shaquille o'neal himself is extending his Long lineage of tie in products that spanned everything from the game shack food to the the long lost showed that soda shek which is also really fun and difficult say But this new team with frosted flakes is aiming to support Sort of this mission tiger that they talk about just trying to help get kids access to sports. So you see both tony and check on this box and Just the phrase crispy cinnamon basketball's Place is yes absolutely. I've been saying in my head again and again and again. Crispy cinnamon basketball's I'm sure it's probably a little bit more fun to say than it will be to eat because when you look at the actual serial itself. It's basically just frosted flakes mixed in with these Sort of cinnamon puffs There's there's a little bit questionable to me. Just because the first thing i think of when i see this is why wouldn't they. Use cinnamon frosted flakes which really exist already and are actually really good. I'm just a little hesitant about using frosted flakes as a mix in just because it seems to be pretty one note and its sweetness and i was hoping they would level that up a little bit here on. I'm interested in something on this box art Besides it's just great. I mean it's it's amazing. It's shock peeking out from behind. This is seriously shack. Peeking out from behind. A box of frosted flakes with shack. Face on it like precursor shacks but I'm curious about in the in the icon there. The logo for frosted flakes. They've slipped in a of corn at the end. So the full title is frosted flakes of corn. Is that a new a new development. And why did that need specified. It's funny that. I think it's been around for a while but it's something you deliberately don't notice i'm not. I'm not sure why they felt the need to do that. I mean we're going back to some. Old box are not all box art. But you know other box are and they do sneak it in a little bit. There's just a of of corn. Yeah i'm not sure. Are people getting confused. That it's flakes of dr goalie. Dominik worth six hundred dollars. Yes oh shocking. Tony's frosted flakes of corn crispy cinnamon basketball's also probably of corn Debuting just in the next couple of months here and it's interesting to note that is also releasing the next in their cereal mashups series which you might remember. Last year. they did fruit. Loops mixed with frosted flakes and now instead of using any other more interesting cereals. They're going to do frosted flakes mashed up with apple. Jacks which the more. I think about it. The more it sounds exactly like shack antonis frosted flakes with crispy cinnamon basketball's away one to the ears. Why what is the obsession. That kellogg's has right now. With mashing things up with frosted flakes or like adding things into frosted flakes. I really don't. They just have a lot leftover or something. I feel like it's one of those cereals. That actually doesn't go because of the speed with which it saw gues compared to some of these others like fruit loops or or apple. Jacks i. it's not a great partner for for another serial yet. No i get that. They wanted to use their more famous. Ip's but i also just think it's probably a matter of you know. Laziness and costs production to cross a few tubes down the kelloggs factory and call it something. New mixing wonder if shelf space figures into it too if they can if they can carve out a little bit more re- real estate if they've got new product like that. I don't know much about that world I'm going to make a huge announcement actually Prognostication that your are. The topic of our next story is going to be the of twenty twenty one. Oh my god. That's a very bold. It's huge right but it has the potential you see it there. I see it. i see. It's sort of name that it's not crispy cinnamon basketball's but when you hear doce delay toast crunch set off a lot of alarm bells in your head. A lot of pavlovian drool instincts and this new sort of just came out a couple of days ago right around national cereal day which was on the seventh. And you know it wasn't a official announcement leaked by our friend. Cereal life on instagram. Who's really really good at Leaking new general mills cereals specifically. I have to imagine they have like a wanted poster of him up in their office just because he keeps sort of getting a getting the jump on all their new serial news but he showed this new box of dole delayed shea toast crunch. It looks pretty similar to a lot of other limited edition. Toast crunch we've seen in the past but in this really really delightful burnt sienna. Sort of goldenrod hugh and This is kind the first time that we've seen an american soldier. Delay chase cereal in about ten years. Which was.

"Really really hyper collectability. Aspect of cereal. Which kind of all falls apart when you realize that. They're just selling these in the serial next to every other box of cereal. And yeah and if you look today at your local facebook marketplace for racist puffs you're gonna find two or more dozen people still selling two or more dozen boxes of travis. Scott reese's puffs trying to sell them for like twenty bucks a pop so i think this is a very very weird Corner of cereal crops. Branding that i don't know if i'm all that into it personally. But as just sort of this weird mutant evolving phenomenon. I find it interesting to watch the app to center for the you know. I don't eat a bunch. I've never cared about box areas I don't look the cereal boxes while i'm eating them. A man so all kinds of great different of adult man who has kind of great different things to look at like screens. I mean visit. Good now i am more exciting news more consumable. I would say pink lemonade. Pop tarts may come back. So this is probably one of the last Limited edition pop tarts flavors. That i ever thought would make a comeback who was way back in two thousand sixteen that pink. Lemonade pop tarts. I came out and I'm not saying that they're bad. I actually thought they were really good. Because i like sweet lemon flavor. I like lemon bars. Lemon pound cake and things like that I especially liked about pink. Lemonade pop tarts. How good the box art was and the actual pastry design. It was the super super vivid hyper saturated box With fleming goes all over it and the actual pop tarts themselves were hot pink do sprinkles and had a bit of sour bite to and it was because these pop tarts were so obscure that i never thought we would hear about them again but they have been rebranded as lemon grew pop tarts and are now back with sadly A much less cool design. I would say a mini. Maybe more cool literally in that. It feels a lot. More frigid in the design is to sort of like washed out tie dye and instead of actually having the pink frosting. they're doing this printed fund approach again. Our they're putting these sort of pink and yellow gradient lemons dressed up to look like musicians on every pastry I i don't know. I'm not really big into the printed fun pop tarts personally. Yeah similar similar here Almost just makes me think of like the paper towels fund designs on and that kind of appetite a little bit. This one of the ways. I like to think about our show is that it's about the future and the president and the past and That sort of future looking. What's coming up but what's On shells right now that you've been enjoying since our last episode dan so the latest thing that i tried was new cinnamon. Roll frosted mini wheats So this isn't an entirely new concept. There have been cinnamon. Roll frosted mini wheats little bites before which already sets a pretty dangerous precedent. Because have you had any of the little bites. Variants frosted mini wheats before. I don't know if i have or not. No i don't think so. They don't come around very often. But i think the most common one would be the chocolate and those are probably my favorite frosted mini wheat. Ever just because they actually thoroughly the thatched tweet itself and sort of having that smaller cumulus density to it makes the frosting shine through a lot more brightly. But that's beside the point because these are full-sized frosted mini wheats the cinnamon roll variety. And i guess to describe the flavor of these would say picture a cinnamon. Flavored frosted mini wheat. Okay i'm doing it. Yeah that's it. Okay not a whole lot about it. It's like it's very very straightforward. Exactly what you would expect because frosted mini wheats as a whole. They tend to be much more subtly flavored. Because you're getting like eighty percent Toasted wait flavor and only twenty percent of these sweet dusting on top and because you have less of that sort of mouthful real estate to capitalize on. There's a lot less depth to the cinnamon that we're getting here. There are a lot of new cereals that come out all the time. Each of them try to put their own nuanced spin on cinnamon toast crunch formula and the way it comes across here is just off. Uh cinnamon sugar atop lots and lots of actual weight. And i think this works a lot better in milk. Wear the the flavors conservative meld together and you can as always soften that that weakness and make it more of just swollen milk pillow but as for me personally i think if i were going to get a frosted mini wheats. I would tend to look for something a little bit more nuanced Like the brown the maple brown sugar one now. That sounds at least a little bit intriguing. But speaking of a lack of nuance. I hear that this next area really takes the cake. As or it's it's really sad too because this is dunk larussa cereal and Anyone who knows a thing or two about dunker ruse knows that it is a nostalgic juggernaut These things were around from nineteen ninety. Two thousand twelve was when they were officially continued. For the first time these sort of little pouches of cookies and frosting that you could dunk and then sort of a wit into your mouth. I believe is the proper nomenclature but the problem with dunker routes and translating that to a serial is that dunkers are so good. Because you're getting this literal actual frosting and it's just this compact bit of decadence and that's something that's really to translate to an entire cereal. You know yeah a lot of times you see. Milk brought in to do the The share of the the creamy. Like when you were frosting element the sort of like potter from the serial mixing with melted. Be a little bit of a frosting ish vibe but the problem is there's not any powder here to speak of these are these are basically Cookie crisp pieces. And if you're familiar with the holiday sprinkles cookie crisp or the fun fatty cereal. That came out recently. That when i believe is actually a puff. Sorry but It's just as very very shallow vanilla and sugar flavor that if you're trying to eat cereal why not go for like one or two levels of flavor rather than like a solid like half of something. That's kind of our sugar redefined..

And i am a serial enthusiast. My name is dan gilbert and i m a walking cereal almanac of sorts We are going to take the next few minutes and we're going to focus them on cereal And we would kindly invite you to do the same You can just relax and think of nothing but cereal We hope that provides you. Some respite. Help varieties us. I spent you know it's a it's a it's a circle of giving we have here We're gonna talk about news. We're going to review some new serials and think about syria for a little bit. Let's all give ourselves permission to do that. and dan. I couldn't be more excited about this first news. One of our big slam cereals from twenty twenty s getting a spiritual successor so. We all remember oatmeal cream pies cereal. The collaboration between kellogg's little debbie. That was first announced last september and eventually hit stores are right around december. I believe and all the fanfare has been shared for cereal. I believe it was in a top. Five of two thousand twenty might have missed. Missed the mark. A little bit in terms of often In terms of accurate depiction of everyone's favorite little debbie snack gig. But what a lot of people might not remember. Is that when the news first leaked about oatmeal cream pie cereal. It came through this video that someone posted of them doing a live taste test of this. Ocp cereal and they had the full box of it and everything and you could definitely tell that. This was a legit cereal And they also had with them this blank box that they claimed contained a cosmic brownies. Cereal they it as well. They put it into a bowl but no one really knew for certain this official as compared to the very real looking. Ocp cereal and when the news officially broke from kellogg's i reached out to them and ask them if there would be a cosmic brownies. Cereal as well and they told me that it wasn't releasing at this time. So back then it kind of made me think that it was a concept that got scrapped. Didn't really follow through. But now that i listened back and read those words again. I can tell that that was just sort of a roundabout pr way of saying that. Yes there's a cosmic brownies cereal. But they weren't allowed to talk about it at the time so it's really really good news to hear now that it has been fishery announced that it cosmic brownies. Cereal from little. Debbie and kellogg's is dropping. This may. i don't know if you've gotten a chance to see the box art for this. So colorful so beautiful. It reminds me of like the backdrop and a super monkey ball game. It's all Shine happiness and rainbows. And i think they actually the concept version that we were shown in the video. Didn't have sprinkles and now there's actual rainbow sprinkles on it. So i'm very very excited about this concept. I think that cosmic brownies were the little debbie snack cakes that i probably grew up on the most. It was definitely a cafeteria lunchroom staple that had a very very high trade value. Believe i could get a whole bosco breadstick by trading one of those back in the day which is a very very high value transaction but with such high expectations comes pressure to make it into a great cereal. And i for one. Tend to err on the side of caution with things like this. Just because when you think of a cosmic brownies cereal. There's a there's a lot of fuzziness to the cosmic brown yourself. Too dense Very dense and moist and the the sprinkles are very very hardy and they're almost like nerds the point of how much they crunch and i just feel that might be a little bit hard to represent a serial form. I'm really hoping we get a bit of that second crunch. Which is a concept. I believe you talked about with the crayola cereal last time. The second crunch So it really remains to be seen whether these will be closer to the cocoa puffs brownie crunch. The general mills did which basically distasted exactly like cocoa puffs wasn't really that impressive or i could also see these pieces kind of look like the puffed square pieces from kellogg's cereal and if they can bring it closer to that type of texture which is a bit fluffier and more powdery. This could actually be hit. I'll be interested to see also the scale. That's really hard to judge from from the picture. They shared like at these. Look like to do a spoonful to me. And i think we've struggled with that kind of proportion one thing. I do enjoy About this j peg that have here on seriously. Dot net is at the bottom of it says sample not intended for sale and that is a mockup box so i will honor their wishes and not attempt to sell this game. Yeah i think that that probably discusion that this is not final boxer which yeah almost kind of hope that is because it looks really really very cool. I think what i was gonna say in terms of like the peace size. I almost think it would be cool to get like you know how. Sometimes when you're eating frosted mini wheats and there. Two of them stuck together if they could try to do that. With every single piece that would probably be like the most authentic way to go about it. Just because you know. The real thing is like has that perforation in between. Yeah so we've heard some rumors a ghostbusters cereal. But it sounds like it's it's maybe a bit more official. Yes so this ghostbusters cereal. We first heard about it. Much like cosmic brownie syria. We didn't get a look at the box art or anything about it. It was kind of sandwiched in between news of the legendary monster. Mash cereal that we talked about a few episodes back as well as a new upcoming cheerios. Oat crunch almond flavor Just because licensed cereals don't tend to excite me that much. I didn't really put much stock into what a ghostbuster cereal could look like It's also unclear when exactly it's dropping. I know the movie. The new ghostbusters movie has been delayed several times in his supposed to be coming out This november i believe so you can expect the serial probably in a few months. Yeah but we do get stale. The movie will be. Yeah but we do look at it here. And i know hyped it up a lot in what i've been working here for the past minute but it also doesn't look all that great. I mean. the box looks pretty good. Yeah it's like a really really smart. This area looks goes boring like some pink puffs with green and white marsh. Yeah like a slimy marshmallows and ghost marshmallows. I i just think with ghostbusters universe. Obviously they can't do a twinkie cereal. Because that's already existed from a cereal company But the least they could give us a feel would be like an active cooler cereal Just because i will take any opportunity to for more orange flavor. The breakfast style absolutely out. We all know about wheaties but dan. Are you here to tell me that they are now. Supreme ladies supreme wheaties. Unfortunately it's not a sort of better form of weeds. It is instead. A collaboration between wheaties and street wear brand supreme Would you might you might know from being a brand that just basically puts the red box logo on shirts and up charges for like a lot more money so this is a really weird bit of cereal news just because this idea of like hype. Beast collaborations between cereal and brands seems to be becoming a lot more popular lately I was like Kith i believe is a street. Where brand that teamed up with cap'n crunch and likewise you've seen Musical artists like travis. Scott and lil. Yati get there. Reece's puffs boxes. So i think this is just another attempt to sort of get in on this..

I would say just because the the name recognition attached to it and the the sort of universal beloved -ness of oatmeal cream pies as a snack. Cake really obviously are going to get a lot of people to try this just from that alone shoreham. We heard about a few months back and also rumors of a cosmic brownies cereal. Those rumors kind of died and just december oatmeal cream pie. Cereal hit the world. And i think it fell a little bit off the mark when it comes to accurately tasting like Little debbie oatmeal cream pie. But it still was extremely solid It was good. I couldn't really find a lot bad about it. Beside- besides not living up to sort of that golden brown standard which is really really high to be honest in the first place But yeah. I found this. I looked for this area. Not since i think Gosh probably not since The twinkie cereal was there. One that i look forward to as much as i look forward to this when i was constantly checking to see who is available. Desperate to get my hands on it. And and you know a very solid cereal. That i think was just not quite up to the the original snack. Cake you know Maybe a little more raisin flavor few marshmallows. I'd love to see that. But i think overall it's it's very respectable. Yes they did. They did a lot of good with molasses in this one. I think that's what really gives the edge over just another Cereal that you might see day to day. So i really think it was an admirable effort as you sort of mentioned. There's just something about snack cakes in serial form that. Draw out the anticipation. And i like to hope that since post teams up with hostess twinkies and kellogg's now has some sort of deal with little debbie. Perhaps we can get a a modern cereal console wars of some sort of who can do the these net cake zero game better because i think in the years to come there still a lot of potential in the desert of Discography lack of a better word of little debbie and hostess when it comes to all their many hits so i'm excited to see what comes from that. Yeah the rumors are still there about Causing brownie was originally rumored When this down there was someone who who. I posted images of the oatmeal cream pies cereal. They had a photo and video of the whole box. But when it came to cosmic brownie cereal. They didn't really have a box. They only had the serial which looked a lot like cocoa puffs brownie crunch which also released this year. So it'd be really weird for them to do a sort of half hoax there. Yeah so. I really hope that that one actually makes the shelves because th-they brownie christ from cocoa puffs was a little disappointing. What's what's number four. So this one's not a traditional cereal. But i think still earns a place Just for blowing expectations out of the water is sort of The opposite of what oatmeal cream pie cereal did. And that was the cap'n crunch and smart food popcorn mix This was something that when i first heard about it. It's basically literally just crunch berries and Berry flavored popcorn in the same bag. It sounded extremely simple. Extremely weird extremely Abrasive to the insides of your mouth. So i didn't really think much of it. But i brought some on a beach day The beach and it was kind of the perfect summer snack Really really.

"So i ended up eating a dozen or more of them before sort of giving giving away a lot of them But they were pretty good. There's these soft little. If you know fiber one brownies basically that size and texture And so those lucky charms blondie got rebranded as lucky terms soft baked bars and they're now out in smaller block sizes general mills then decide to pair them as they always seem to do with lucky charms. Licensed products with a cinnamon toast crunch version as well and i'm happy to say that these are pretty great like they're small they're super small. Unfortunately but they're basically like softer and cinnamon brown sugar pop tarts so they taste almost exactly the same in my opinion. If you like those pop tarts he'll definitely be down for those and the ironic part is that i feel like having six in a box is not enough and this is what. I'd rather have a thirty six of them. In case now you lucky look so and so got your hands on some mexican waffle crisp. He south of the border holding it down for us. Cereal wise A lot of innovation and adherence to the classics down there How was waffle crisp of mexico. This is an interesting one because first of all Waffle crisp has been discontinued in america for a while now and we did talk about how they were spotted in mexico. The the continued existence of waffle crisp But i didn't really know how to get my hands on them for a while but thankfully The mexican candy lady who you may recall. We both bought tropical fruit loops from and those were amazing She also is selling waffle crisp on her website. So it's not necessarily me being lucky. Because i invite all of you to go to her web store and get some for yourself. If you're interested. But i i get first dibs. Because we're recording this sorry suckers they're all gonna be growing. I bought them up but yeah I'm not sure if the production timeline of these. I don't know how long they're continued to be made in mexico but what really confuses me about these waffle. Crisp boxes for mexico is one that is not really mexican waffle crisp because the whole boxes in english and spanish stickers. All over it So it's really unclear. The location of production manufacturing and even more confusing is that maybe. Maybe it's just been a long time since i've had waffle crisp but this doesn't look like the same serial it doesn't taste exactly like the waffle crisp i remember. I was going back to all my photos of waffle crisp in the past and sort of crossing thousands of the canberra's duar. The geometry of mexican waffle. Crisp feels slightly different. It seems slightly more square than the more rounded american crisp and the the little checks or holes. Whatever you would call the sort of Square pockets that make a waffle waffle. Seem a lot. More uniform and crisp crisply cut out of the center and the taste. It's it's the same taste motif but it's a little less strong as a little bit more of a sweet butter twist to it. It's still good still really great. But it's sort of driving me crazy. That i can't tell whether this is waffle chris or some sort of close changeling well that i mean it's frustrating but it's good to know that it's out there in the world nor argument. They're both a lotta mexican cereals that i'm not have before. Sorry everybody but me buying all of them. We asked you for your favorite Or or your dream. I should say Pebbles product a lot of pebbles products last week and We ask you for your you know how you'd like see pebbles us and We're going to play those voicemails for you now. Hi dan hi justin. this is jordan from connecticut. product. That i'd like to see of the pebbles variety would be like those strawberry shortcake ice cream bars except with fruity pebbles cocoa pebbles. Any pebbles would be amazing. Almost a little shocked. It doesn't exist yet. It almost feels like such a no-brainer. Thanks guys podcast haydn justin. This is lily from california. First off thank you so much for this wonderful podcast. The pebbles products that i'd love to see would be sort of truthful. You could use it to top a coffee cake or instead of a top crust on. Maybe a fruity flavored pies. I think that this really delicious and the rainbow colors of thirty pebbles would how anybody who's receiving the pie. thanks again. hello justin and dan. My name is josh from oregon. What i see in an new pebble cereal to warm. Our hearts and minds is coffee flavored as a second year undergraduate study. I've become well acquainted with the caffeinated concoction. And i believe nothing else would truly pair better than a cup of medium roast in a bowl of coffee pebbles and milk. Who's to say we stopped there. Maybe we substitute the milk with actual coffee to create a culinary coffee cacophony. A potential advertising point post could go for as a sort of play on the cocoa puffs. Drink chocolate milk thing instead. It could be advertised as similar to drinking. A smoothed iced coffee. I recently discovered your podcast and it's become one of my favorites. Thank you and always remember to drink the coffee. Thank you everyone. I would like to for a new Voicemail segment for x. voicemail round voicemails. I would like to divert this into a new discussion. You know it's rare. We have new bits dam. And i wanted to right. We didn't talk to you about this. But i didn't talk about this. We use the roadway. I didn't talk to you about this before. But i would like to start a new ongoing discussion between you and the listeners. Are you down for this. Sort of free form odyssey. Well that is pretty vague. But i'm going to say yes good. So here's the question that i would like to pose to you and to our listeners for this next Ran away. smells is serial. This is something that. I have been Dabbling with a bit getting into some some dark dark work. Wet work some some dark web serial things i it started when i made this really delicious Cereal snack mix. There was sort of caramelized version of cereal Sorry kamli snack. Mix that had Critics and i threw it some crunch. Cheerios and because they are fantastic. And there's some nuts and you know butter sugar caramel stuff and he basically cooking for an hour. It's fantastic with the recipe up somewhere it but anyway I was making this. And that night as i was about to go to sleep. I thought wait a minute. I have all these extra. Chris picks what i'm gonna do is. I'm gonna fill a bowl with. Chris picks half. Chris picks and caramel cereal snack. Mix why not right. But then i started thinking if i just fill the bowl with caramel snack. Mix and put milk on it. Is that serial man. I want to get your thoughts on that. But i also want to get your thoughts on another serial additive that i wonder if it cereal or not and that would be peanut. Butter filled pretzels. Dan if i filled a bull peanut butter filled pretzels. The you know the small ones right if i poured a ball of peanut butter filled pretzels and i poured milk on it. Is that cereal. And those are two the first two that i would like to get your the closest thing. I have to serial expert. Mind i would like to expert check speier. Thank you to get your adjudication on these two options. I is a. I've described them both detail. These first two injuries into this ongoing series is cereal and it is caramel. Syria-based caramel snack. Mix and peanut butter filled pretzels. Okay well i guess my first clarifying question is have you ever had pretzels and milk before. I'm trying to think if we have had a cereal that had i'm thinking i mean we've talked about like pretzel pop tarts. I don't know that i i mean. Are you asking if i had an officially licensed pretzel cereal. Because that's probably a no. But have i done some dark stuff in the past that i don't necessarily wanna talk about. Yes absolutely of course yes okay. It's just difficult for me because it throws me back to this one experience. I was a middle school child child in middle school. Obviously one of the worst ages to be as a human being but do not recommended listening to skip. It skipped if you can but as a as a middle school boy in the lunchroom me and my friends were once tasked with creating the worst possible smelling thing we could buy. A mixture of simple foodstuffs and i found that by putting pretzels in sunny d. it was the most putrid smelling thing i've ever smelled when i when i hear pretzels and milk..

"The world is frozen at least half of it is usually comes and goes the other half the world Continues in the sun. But we hear this ephemeral podcast hover between the two between the heat and the cold between the soggy and the crunch we are simply present. Welcome to the empty bowl. a meditative podcast about serial. My name's justin mcelroy. And i m a serial enthusiast. My name is dan. Gilbert and i am a serial checks burt as a serial expert With a specialty in check studies A focus in all. The quests that those checks may go on dan. I'm so happy to be with you and i'm happy you at home or are listening. I hope you are comfortable Maybe you've got a bowl of cereal. Maybe don't either way is fine but this is a chance for you to just relax. Sit back and do nothing but think about serial. We're gonna have some news. We're going to have some reviews and we're just gonna kinda think about syria for a little bit you've earned it. You're worth it. Let's do it dan. What is going on in the world of cereal. Actually dan sidebar with you for a second before. Show listen folks. This is me just macaroni. I need your help. If you see oatmeal cream pies. Cereal out in the world anywhere. We just let me know at justice. Macaroni twitter. Just give me a shout. I keep looking for it and i really wanna try it. It's supposed to be out this month. So if you see that or innovate other one. That's very strange. Tan is that honey made serial. Really i don't know if it ever made it into wide release because i have never found it like anywhere and i like i'm not above checking ebay stuff like that like i have never found this cereal exchange. I've do imagined that the empty bowl effect just caused it to fly off shelves so fast. Maybe that's it. Have you seen either those just on your shelves in the wild. I think i've seen honey made cinnamon but oatmeal cream pie. Cereal only got a wide release starting in december so still be slowly rolling out. Its way out. But either way. I think you're about to get like a hundred boxes in your po box. There are worst things to happen than cream pies. Both the cereal end the products to po box. Fifty four hundred seven zero six enough of me monopolizing the conversation. What is going on in the world of cereal. Damn well in five and a half years of cereal journalism. It takes a lot to really get me excited about a serial news item. But this might this could potentially be the biggest thing to happen in a decade So i saw this tweet. From an account called ghostbusters of michigan So representing my home state. Here is also the noble ghostbusters who serve our nation. Thank you for your word year but they posted this really really blurry screenshot of what looked like a preemptive list of upcoming product releases for general mills. And we'll get to the other one minute but obviously the star here was something called monster mash cereal This wasn't entirely unexpected because A lot of people were disappointed this past year and twenty twenty that nothing really happened on the whole monster cereal front. They didn't get new box designs. They didn't Sort of change. The gimmick at all they just kinda did this giveaway of Three really really gratuitously graphic busts of the monsters But but some of us were theorising that because twenty. Twenty one marks the fiftieth anniversary of the monster cereals. I release of contract and franken berry in nineteen seventy-one that maybe General mills just doing a slow year this year to really build up to something for twenty twenty one and it looks like monster mash. Cereal might be fulfilling that promise We've gotten a clearer. Look at this concept box art so far. It's certainly not a finalized box art but it shows all five monster cereals one box. So that's chocula franken berry blueberry fruit and yummy mummy the latter two Being very very cult favorite versions of the monster cereals that came out in reduce continued in the eighties and nineties respectively. They came back for year and twenty thirteen and people have been really jonesing for their return ever since and rightfully so so. This monster mash aerial. It's still unclear exactly what it is By the looks of it could be all the fives monster cereals. In one bag They could be taking more of a kellogg's altogether cereal approach where it's many boxes in one big box but either way. There's a lot more questions than answers here. And since october of twenty twenty one is obviously still so far away. A lot of people are hoping that this could may be be the chance to remind general mills just how much a very very dedicated Sect of monster. Cereal fans want the return of out flour as an ingredient Just because the the reduction to just a corn basis kind of dampened how good these serials actually are so if bruton yummy. Mummy are gonna come back. They really deserve that star treatment in terms of hearty based cereal grain. I would love this. I have fond memories of the early days of these cereals and they just don't stack up any more they're a fun novelty but they are not To to use the loss of the marketing folks crave -able. I'll say in the way some of those early serials were yeah. I'm also curious whether if they're really really doing a true A celebration of the old cereals whether fruit in yummy mummy might get their original flavors back..

"I've been trying to find a serial that i had as a child. I don't remember what it was called and have made absolutely no progress and figuring out. I was really hoping you could help. It was a lucky charms slash marshmallow. Macy's like cereal but the bits banana flavored. They weren't advertised this way but they definitely were may have been a store brand. I live in south carolina. If that helps it may even be discontinued. It's such an important flavor of my childhood is. I'm sure you can understand if you're not able to help. I totally understand. I just didn't know where else to turn. That's from sweet crusade in south carolina. Does this ring any bells for you. I don't think it does and part of the reason. I wanted us to read it on. The air is just in case and you went out. There can identify what this is. Because i really really. I get a fair number of emails from people trying to identify these very very vague cereals from their past memory. And i'm really sad when i can't contribute any sort of Confident suggestion to that search. So there's gotta be someone out here listening to our show that this rings a bell too. So yeah if you know what sirius' can head to mail dot rest and we can link you up link your answer up with sweet crusade in south carolina While we and we will also had definitely a read it on the show.

Crunch dust mites sweden. Everything up. i do worry that will end up eating the scrubs before we can give them but regardless. It's something i'd be willing to try this year. Thank you so much for this podcast and this space take good care. Hello cereal lovers sir. Adrian from boston. I'm here to share my idea for using cinnamon toast crunch dust. I have a treat. I used to make growing up around the holidays. When i'm baking pies for this you'll take scraps of pied don't get used or trimmed off. Roll them out again and cut them into strips.

"Afternoon They ever chronicle of just every cereal that's ever come out and people can leave comments and like even the most obscure stuff you'll find someone in the comments. He's like my best stuff ever ever released. Get rid of this. Why would they get rid of cupcake. Pebbles i read this this one this one review come from somebody who says the texture the taste the presentation. It's got it all life hack if you let it sit for a little like thirty minutes it gets all soggy so you can drink like a smoothie. Thought i'd let my fellow civilians. No peace love and happiness. Did you ever try. Candy corn pebbles. No i think there was a bit before my blogger. Lee time ask i guess. Two thousand fourteen I'm just looking at the list of of different pebbles varieties because we're trying to remind myself. There's any other biggies that i i do. Remember cookie pebbles. Yeah it's time the best smelling cereal. Not even talking about tastes because he was only right but the smell was candle. Where we've got an update here monte cleon So if you remember a while back we were introducing the pebbles candy bar from frankford We also mentioned how they were releasing a pebbles white chocolate bunny for easter next year. we kind of gave the The note that you need to wait for those for a while. Obviously but you do not need to wait if you want to get a giant hunk of a white creamy and pebbles because they're also releasing fruity pebbles bunnies much like we saw with fruit loops last year. Oh nice yeah. And that's from frankfurt. Who i learned are also the ones who make gummy crabby patties. So great come in a plastic candy cane full of crabby patties for my children. They candy canes. It was a huge plastic candy. Cane full of cabbie betis are they all individually wrapped or is it no. Yeah yeah yeah they don't skimp on the plastic okay This last story is It's this is a challenging one. dan. I'm not gonna lie. Yeah i mean trying to think of the most obscure consumable product that pebbles could be infused into and you're probably not going to land on number ones. Antifreeze number is pebbles protein powder from diamond ties. I believe how it's pronounced and these are giant giant giant thump tubs. That you've probably seen of just the most pebbles protein powder you could possibly imagine. They have them in both fruity and cocoa varieties. Don't get don't get it twisted. There's something for everyone here. I guess these are pebbles that you actually could use in a smoothie like that guy was mentioning earlier But it really doesn't become that weird if you think about it instead as the modern successor to the flintstones vitamin yeah. Let's violence for ups. Yeah we the a whole suite of flintstones lifestyle products for the active adult. The i don't know about this one. I don't know i feel like it would be disconcerting to have the flavor in in something. That's that healthy. But hey i don't know. Yeah i mean you gotta call it when you have to get. Why not do it with fred and barney the game the shining icons the beacons ripped masculinity fred and barney. Dan fruit loops candy. Canes how close we have run the gamut. I feel like on fruit loops products. How closely do these nail of the those. The distinct flavor of fruit loops they. They're kind of glass canons. I mean any. Any candy cane is because the crush so easily but they they nail the fruit loops flavor but it does not last long and it's very sort of like surface level so you can enjoy it. You can taste taste the fruit loops goodness but once you get to the cane beneath it. It's just really really unpleasant. Like it's it's not even as good as sort of a pixies not the the walker fun dip liquor stick. That's what i would have loved beneath the sort of fruit loops glaze. But really it's just this sort of boring flavourless candy cane based that unfortunately does not make the experience worth it. In my opinion it needs to be infused down to the molecular level of every single adamant that candy cane. If this is going to work and has it. I mean it looks. It looks super cute. Though i would hanging last year with that did you try a mandalorian cereal. Yeah i've had this fridge for a while now just because i keep forgetting that it exists. I haven't actually tried it. Because i was busy with other blog articles but i just finally cracked open yesterday and it is just bad. It's really bad. I hadn't it's really bad. It's like you can have whatever opinions you on the star wars franchise but it's funny. How the metaphorical decline of quality of star. Wars cereals seems to matches seems to match a lot of people's criticisms of the series over time. It's just gotten very very bland. They don't even try to shape. The corn puffs into low x wings anymore. They just give you these round corn puffs and a single a single shape of marshmallow in the baby. Yoda green and the whole thing. Just kind of tastes like not tricks but tricks flavored medicine. And i don't think there's much redeeming one in my opinion. Oh that's heartbreaking Yeah i had is a real. It's a real disappointment. Dan i and i you know it's bad enough. Stars cereals are pretty What you said bland but this one is just beyond beyond it also has the wildest back of box i couldn't make heads or tails of it. It looks like a zoom in of star wars trading card ganic. And there's no information it's so inch a mosaic mural piece. Yeah it's so bizarre. At least they they liked the little. Yoda marshmallows my two year. Old is obsessed baby at as she picked out the marshmallow tonight them. I just close. You can get the baby. Yoda consuming him into her human body. I had i had a serial this week. Only tell them the alpha shelf sugar. Sorry l. from the shelf. Katie king cookie crunch. I think it's called. Oh i was looking for that one. I couldn't find it. Yeah just to give you a heads up. I don't want to bias your you're reviewing process It is the faintest possible mint flavor. Man i think they could possibly have done. You know the weirdest thing about it is the marshmallows which are if you remember the last for the shelf very small. I mean microscopic marshmallows Have a stronger mint flavor. But they're so rare it feels like you've been down. Some sort of incorrectly blended cereal like all boy. That's a lot of mit and that little bite of the rest of it is the is the hint of mint. It's like mitt live there for a few months and then moved out and there's just a little bit of like mitt left in the coroner's from time to time if you let into the carpet yeah Now now and the sad thing is they only sell these things in like family size boxes. I have an engineer a purpose. Nobody in my house likes the cereal. But can't even hang that stuff on the tree like candy canes Here's an email from a listener Our email addresses male apple dot.

"Gratitude it seems to me should not be confined to a day or a week or even year gratitude. I think is a mindset. Every day i try to find something to be grateful for and every day that thing is serial hello and welcome to the empty bowl meditative. Podcast about serial. My name is justin mcelroy. And i am a serial enthusiast. Dan gilbert and i may serial archaeologist in that. We're talking about a lot of pebbles products. Today all the finest serials have been unearthed from the dust and shoveled their ball as we know Dan i'm so happy to be here according to the show with you To find the moment of this show brings me a lot of peace to record as hope it does for our listeners. That was the gap for you to say that you enjoy doing it too. Damn but you let it go by. And i don't oh boy so no godly added. This is a time for you to relax to not think about anything other than cereal. Or i talk about. News some reviews and You know some other stuff. Ephemera cereal ephemera. You promised pebble news. Do you wanna start with pebbled news or we want to go a little bit outside. The pebbles homered off with. Let's start with a sort of a more open prologue before we get down to the nitty gritty stuff sure So this is news of another new cheerios addition in the last episode. We talked about a couple. Different new cheerios items and one of them was multi grain cheerios with dried strawberry pieces. So that's exciting for the those of us who like a plain plain cheerios and the unique chew dried fruit But for those of us who prefer to have our fruit flavor baked in with little bit a little bit something sweeter in their general mills has just the solution with upcoming chocolate strawberry. Cheerios These are debuting on the star. Twenty twenty one just in time or more than just in time for valentine's day these are stylized like and appear to be very similar to chocolate peanut butter cheerios. Those came out a couple years back and they were probably one of the best cheerios of their time. Probably one of the greatest of all time just a very very richly powdered Cheerios so i think that will translate very well to chocolate and strawberry. It makes me think particularly of if you remember when i talked about the holy flavor trinity of cereal off course. I remember but if you could refresh our listeners. Sure so my theory is basically that three different flavors in combination thereof could more or less gave you the greatest spectrum of cereal enjoyment out there. So you've got chocolate peanut butter and strawberry with chocolate and peanut butter. We saw that with the cheerios. Pretty great with chocolate strawberry. I'm sure it's going to be pretty swell to but that sort of implies that the next space that general mills and cheerios need to enter would be that of. pb and j. cheerios. So bringing the fruity and nutty together. And if that's how this cheerios trilogy ends. I am in the front row seats. The platinum bowl the gilded spoon laugh when he bought that platinum bowl. They said dan don't spend tens of thousands of dollars but loose who's laughing now so many stories about pebbles have to wonder is pebbles going to be new cinnamon toast crunch. It may sound like that given with given all the things that we're about to talk about but it is interesting to note that this is the fiftieth anniversary of pebble cereals. So when you see post going into a across branding blitz. it's probably mostly all to celebrate the unique occasion in really cash in on What do they call it anniversary. The we'll call it the grand anniversary for the but the first item on our pebbles watch this pebbles giving is pebbles coffee. Creamer in both fruity and cocoa varieties this interesting It comes pretty closely on the heels of cinnamon toast crunch coffee creamer and it. It's kind of a mixed bag in my opinion. I think fruity pebbles coffee. Creamer has a really really distinct unique flavor to it that could be really really fun That necessarily wasn't the case with the the fruity cereal coffee that we talked about a few episodes back. Those kind of really really stringent in a sense So i hope they can improve on that which it probably will. It'll be a lot sweeter but cocoa pebbles. I have trouble seeing how that might taste any different from. Just like a mocha creamer. Yeah it's a specific flavor. It would be. I mean. I think that would be quite a feat. L. the exact cocoa flavor of cocoa pebbles they do it might be interesting but I think fruity pebbles definitely the well. It's a stranger combination to Fruity cremers are not are not super duper common Oh sorry no that's a. Where do you stand. On the issue of cocoa pebbles versus cocoa krispies I personally i. I think that in terms of form factor crunchy texture The cocoa pebbles pieces are the pebbles pieces. I should say are the peak of cereal engineering. I don't think there is a more pleasant than than pebbles so criminals would take it over cocoa krispies. Okay i definitely liked the audio logical factor of the krispies. I think that means means a lot to me I don't know. I kind of a weird thing with pebbles which like if i eat it too meditatively as this podcast would recommend it gets a little too soggy in a sloppy tower. Through for sure. One time that serial should be Sort of fast i guess. What else more. Pebbles mobile's so. These are rumored to be coinciding with the fiftieth release of pebbles fiftieth anniversary. And these are birthday. Cake pebbles Why is that. Ring a bell for me in twenty ten. There were cupcake pebbles. That as maybe what. I'm thinking of you. So i'm guessing probably taste very similar to those which means very very severi suite with probably a dash of buttercream It's funny. I was thinking like who who is very excited for birthday cake puzzles and then i went back. And i read more about the cupcake pebbles and If you've ever been on mr breakfast dot com and if you haven't That's a good way to waste in a good.

You're going out wayne if you're going to wayne county that's what the wayne county and refer to it as i think as well but i found a weird bizarro Way at walmart way out there and wing county way out outweighing which is only bizarre because it is not the one that i typically go to not that i frequent lately but they had huge boxes crates of the stuff of the spongebob. Cereal and i was really way down by trying to decide. How much of this series. That i needed to i to secure myself as a as a great dad while understanding than it was likely my only chance to buy the cereal before it disappears completely. And how much did you buy. Four boxes is what. I went with dan on. That seemed the best. I could do without getting kicked out of the store personally but Captain crunch i. I'm remembering that story. Because i i believe i saw it there. The christmas crunch. But it's i hear it's got new box artists at is that accurate yes. This is the significant to the sort of kamprad banham just because For a long long time the captain would change the sort of gimmick behind christmas crunch and have some sort of you know interesting twist on this serial that has essentially just cap'n crunch with crunch berries but the crunch berries are sort of holiday shaped they are red and green. That's pretty much. All there is to it but since two thousand sixteen. I was the last time that they changed the box heart. So you've probably seen in the past four years this version of cap'n crunch dressed essentially as like clark. Griswold strange lights all wrapped around him. And that is actually the same mainline. Christmas crunch box boxer. That's being used in most mass retailers but when it comes to the double box pack which includes again two boxes of christmas crunch in one larger box. They actually changed that one something new and rather quite beautiful. As far as i'm concerned is it's very nice to look at. Yeah it's got this ugly sweater themed and the cabinet is not dressed up. Usually in previous years he'll be in some sort of christmas attire. But at least in this case the font on the cap'n crunch logo is great. Now i do okay then if you enhance the image. I think the captain is in a sweater version of his normal apparel. Hold on if you if you enhance enhance. Expect a lot of details in this box. Just because oh my god. I didn't even see that. There is definitely do it. Yeah wow okay. Serves me right. He's on his epaulettes. Alum are kind of fuzzy at around the. There's like a cinched sleeve stripes on or a little fuzzy too. I think it is all right. I stand corrected. This is probably the most intricate christmas crunch box are. We may have ever seen. But outside of the sort of wardrobe it also features the cabin pretty eagerly grabbing this present that he has for you the serial consumer and if the rest of the boxes any indication. This president of his is filled with cereal and milk. So this beautiful sluggy gift that he has for us regardless of the sort of logical inconsistencies of the boxer. I just think it's really really satisfying to get a new christmas. Grunge box art for once. And i was hoping we could use to review three of my favorite christmas crunch boxes from years. So these are all based on sort of longtime friend of syria. Leslie and i guess my inspiration. For blogging dinosaur dracula who has a very rich history of covering the cabin and he's written three different articles on these different boxes to discuss. So if you want to learn more. I recommend you look for them but first off in chronological order is nine hundred ninety one christmas crunch which you know the actual box art was pretty standard but this christmas crunch came with a special gift attached and this is no standard cereal box prize whereas at the bottom of the box rather this was an additional cardboard cylinder attached to your cereal box at the top that contained the immediate result. The ultimate result was a little bit disappointing in that it contained a coupon for fifty percent off your next chris. Cap'n crunch purchase a contained a container of rain.
