Cap'n Crunch's Halloween Crunch

One of the amusing little pleasures I enjoy once in awhile is Halloween cereal throughout the year, which is why the 'Falloween' months are great to stock up on a variety of practical items; but this was found just recently gracing a dark corner of an aisle. A cereal that "speaks to Me!"

Besides Count Chocula, Booberry, Frankenberry, Yummy Mummy and Fruit Brute, I had the pleasure of a bowl of {Limited Edition} Cap'n Crunch's Halloween Crunch earlier, and it sure is delicious. The milk does indeed turn "ghost green". Besides the attractive front box cover, and the Cap'n Crunch pumpkin template on the back, there are actually little gems of trivia such as:
  • "The largest pumpkin ever grown weighed in at 1,800 pounds!" Yes, I have seen photos of these monster gourds from the Ripley's Believe It Or Not files, raised by farmers and entered into annual contests for The Guinness World Records.
  • "Jack O' Lanterns originally consisted of candles placed in hollowed out turnips to keep away ghosts and spirits." According to arcane lore, yes indeed, as well as lighting the way for Mr. Jack; although I like to think of Jack O' Lanterns as lighting the way to and from Hell to bring forth the demonic brothers, sisters, and friends to celebrate the special Magic of this night.
  • "Did you know that pumpkins are made up of around 90 percent water?" I imagine dehydrating them would make for quite a raisin.
  • "Seeds that are related to the pumpkin have been found in caves dating back over 7,000 years in Mexico." Interesting. "Dia De Los Muertos", anyone?
This is great either in milk or by itself, even as a topping for ice cream, if so inclined. Plus, whatever remaining ghost milk there may be can be poured into one's coffee. ∞
