Grape Nuts versus Grape Nut Flakes (marco.org)

In my big ranting post about Steve Jobs’ death, I managed to briefly mention some of the Apple-related sites I read and why I enjoy reading them. I think I might have left Marco Arment out of the list however, and now’s as good a time as any to rectify that.

It’s not that the Flakes taste bad — rather, like Ocean’s Twelve, they’re bland, unmemorable, and a complete waste of a cereal-eating opportunity.

I’m not there with Marco on his love for coffee, but I’m certainly there for this. Breakfast cereals are my favourite class of food, easily. It was a sick irony that by the time I took my trip to the US - ground zero for some fucking crazy breakfast cereals - I have had to all but give up on the stuff.
