1) Why does it have to be either/or? 3/4 of the cereal on supermarket shelves are junk food.

2) It's KLP. Of course it's shit.

I don't buy 3/4 of the cereal on supermarket shelves, I buy cereals that have nutritional value.

 

For Pesach, I can't eat my normal cereals, so the choices are limited.

 

According to an internet search, "Cake Meal" is ground-up matzah.  Is that accurate?  If so, then this product (Ingredients: Cake Meal, Sugar, Tapioca Starch) is basically just ground-up matzah with sugar added, as well as being over-priced, and I'd be better off just mixing matzah crumbs with milk.

Well, it also has Tapioca Starch, which is more of a cereal than a simple sugar.

 

But yes, it is just overpriced matza meal, and its only redeeming factor is it probably tastes marginally ok.

 

And you should certainly not break up matza crumbs in milk since that will taste horrible. It would be much better to just eat the matza and drink the milk.

Is this a leading question, or a rhetorical statement disguised as a leading question?
