It’s kinda slow on the trading floor today. This chick has an extra large box of Apple Jacks on her desk. As le cereal connoisseur that I are… I went on to talk about how the cinnamon toasty bites were always one of my favorites growing up – but that was back in the day when they were all one color. ORANGE!
Well the chick said that they have always been multi-colored. “Not!” I said. “The jenks was one color not this milti-deal.”
She said I didn’t know what I was talking about. To which I asked, “And how old are you?”
“Puuulease what do you know about the history of Kellogg’s, General Mills, Post or anything else for that matter. ”
That is when one of the traders from the back chimed in, “I have eaten at least one bowl of Apple Jacks per week for the last 35 years. I assure you that they were always two colors.”
“Bullshit!” I said, I know my damn cereal and imma look it up!
Sure enough… according to Wikipedia, “Originally, all Apple Jacks cereal pieces were orange and O-shaped, although they have become brighter and more orange colored over the decades. In 1993, O-shaped green pieces were introduced.
I told them to never question the cmac on cereal!
To which the 35 year eating Apple Jacks man said, “Hey you got a series 7? I need some help!”
This is going to be a great year!
