    I think that Alice’s theory is quite plausible.

    It’s funny because it’s true! :) But what about cereal’s symbiotic, mutualistic relationship with the toys that sit at the bottom of the bag? Isn’t that the peak of cereal’s evolution?

    I believe that the toys are what marshmallows evolve into. ;)

    I wonder what Alice would think of Calvin’s cereal, Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs. Perfection in a box?

    And then once you get hooked on a particular flavor, they stop making it

    I don’t know, I don’t think Calvin has ever mentioned marshmallows being in his cereal, and that has always been important to Alice. In the very first strip, I believe, Alice was complaining about not enough marshmallows in her cereal that morning.

    In one strip Calvin did mention to his mother that they had a variety with marshmallows.

    I think in the evolution of cereals, chocolate appears much earlier: cf. Pebbles cereal.

    Either that or they “improve” it. The worst words to read on any box are “New. Improved. Now better than ever”. You know at once that even the dog won’t eat them, and your kids will hold you responsible.

    Chocolate comes before Vanilla in cereal evolution.

    what i ahte about cereal is that the milk gets into the marshmallows and they lose flavor. so i eat it dry.

    Or they make it in such small quantities that the only place you find it is in “bargain stores” in very small towns.

    A bowl of Peeps and Cheerios does sound good right now.

    I’d love to hear Alice’s take on the COMMERCIALS for breakfast cereals! Have you noticed how in many commercials the mere act of ingesting just one spoonful of Sugar Bombs triggers a hallucinatory experience? The child is transported to a colorful, magical land, or in some commercials even turns into a cartoon or video game character. Imagine the child’s disappointment when that promised wondrous transformation never happens – no wonder they go searching for bigger thrills! The conclusion is obvious: Breakfast cereals are a gateway drug.
