How the fuck do cereal companies get away with selling junk food as something to eat for breakfast AND are able to put shit like this on sugar delivery systems? I've heard that when American cereals/Pop-Tarts are sold in UK import stores they have to cover up these claims with tape. Is that true?

I'm an American who has always been amazed cereal companies get away with this. I remember it used to be worse in like the 90s/early 00's too.

Well, they technically aren't lying. Even with all the fucking sugar and preservatives and chemicals they add to breakfast cereal, it's still made with whole grains which have fiber. They're also usually fortified with vitamins too.

Not defending sugary breakfast cereals, I think they're disgusting but it's not like they're lying about the contents.

There's probably a market for it, and there's no reason why they shouldn't be allowed to sell cereal.

There are lots of cereals to choose from, and plenty that have little to no sugar, it's not hard to avoid the bad ones.

Fruit Loops aren't even cheap, I don't know why they're so popular. I can buy shredded wheat for like 2 or three dollars a box, and the box is bigger and heavier than the Fruit Loops one.

It's not illegal. Also, sugary cereals can contain vitamins and be considered a LITTLE healthy.

Anyway, hot cereal best cereal. You can add whatever you want to it.

pretty much the problem

well that and properly educating the society/children on nutrition and phasing out these companies by simply neglecting their products

All breakfast cereals are shit. Even the ones that aren't loaded with sugar. Overprocessed grains are a terrible breakfast. Eating this stuff is a good habit to kick. Replace it with vegetables alongside a glass of milk, and I guarantee you'll feel a health improvement within a fortnight.

'froot' loops are legitimately the worst cereal, tastes like artificial shitty fruit
>>
>>7126692

Yeah in the uk all cereal from America has coloured tape covering the front parts of the box so you can't read all of it
>>
>>7126776
Toucans are colourful, and tropical. Fruit loops are colourful and most fruits are grown in or near the tropics
>>
>>7126692
OP, are you that stupid? Marketing and advertising degrees. How do morons such as you get away with living?

You mean it's not sugary. Youre a tasteless sugar zombie
