After recent trips to various supermarkets, I was disappointed that I was unable to find a certain breakfast cereal on sale that I used to be rather fond of – Golden and Cinnamon Grahams.

I looked high and low in Asda, Morrison’s and Tesco, but was unable to find the cereal. All Bran, Weetabix and Shreddies just aren’t the same.

Then I looked on the source of all knowledge, Wikipedia, and was disturbed to learn that the once King of Breakfast Cereals had been discontinued in the UK. It would appear my love for the sweet morning treat was not shared by many. Or, it was shared by too many and was being blamed for the nation’s obesity problem.

It appears they still sell the cereal in America and many countries throughout Europe. Is it worth moving to another country, simply for a nice breakfast? No. Is it worth importing them at £6 a box (plus p&p)? No.

It looks like I will simply have to do without. Both Golden Graham and his cinnamon-coated cousin have been exiled from the UK supermarket cereal aisle, along with Corn Pops and Lucky Charms.

The Yanks, French and Spanish don’t know how lucky they are.

    Curiously, they’re now called ‘curiously cinnamon’ (as per recent ad on telly) and available at our local Sainsburys @ £2.15 a box.

    So next time you’re up @ the Bescot Stadium to see Bath or Leeds get their asses whipped, pop into Reedswood ‘n fill ya boots lol 🙂

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
