I’m going to risk my reputation here and admit something. Even though I’m 59 years old, I still eat cereal for breakfast on most mornings. Some habits are hard to shake off.
For the most part, I eat “grown-up cereal,” but that’s just a rationalization.
Over the last few months, I have noticed that cereal boxes themselves have gotten flimsier, tearing and ripping. The boxes themselves are just not as sturdy as they used to be.
Let’s not even talk about the inner bags. We can do open heart surgery on a baby still in its mother’s womb, but we can’t figure out how to engineer a re-sealable bag for a box of cereal?
Am I the only one who has noticed?
