obsessed.: Marshmallow Mateys

When I was younger, I never really ate sugary cereals. My mom occasionally let me get a box, to try. I can remember one specific circumstance when I picked a box of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch. That was probably one of the worst decisions I've ever made.

When Colt moved in nearly 3 years ago, there was a gradual influx of new food items into my pantry. One of which was sugary cereals. Through him, I realized my love of Lucky Charms. One fateful day at the grocery store, we were being budget conscious and instead of going for the brand name, we picked up a giant bag of Malt-O-Meal Marshmallow Mateys. Say hello to this week's obsessed.
Pirate-themed cereal? Can it get any better?
How do you like that artsy macro shot I took with my cell phone?

I've also laid out the various pieces and labeled them, for your viewing pleasure:
I'm sure this cereal is playing havoc on my teeth, but looking at the back of the package, they are surprisingly good for your body. And you can't beat $5 for 38 oz of awesomeness.


  1. You took that pic with your cell?! That is amazing quality. And frick, now I want some. Wonder if we've got it up here.

  2. My phone camera is surprisingly decent. :)

    And if you don't find any up there, let me know. I would totally ship you a bag. <3

  3. Mmmmm....now I want some cereal.

  4. Haha, I'd totally share ... the bag is huge! ;)

  5. The green dolphins are my personal favorite part!
