What The Sam Hell?

As if things were not driving me crazy before. Something just flipped my world upside down. I know what you are thinking.... "Seriously Jan? With all the tragedies going on in the world, in our own backyard, and THIS has your panties in a bunch?"


"The Soggies have finally won: 
Cap'n Crunch is quietly sailing into retirement.
Long derided by health experts for its high sugar content – a single serving contains 12 grams – the cereal is no longer being actively marketed by Quaker, DailyFinance reports. It appears parent company PepsiCo is forcing the good Cap'n to walk the plank."

How can they do this to me????

I am a good person... I don't smoke...I don't do drugs.... I have a glass a wine now and then, but I don't abuse it... I am not mean... I, I, I,... have a little addiction to Capn' Crunch cereal.

I have been lovin' it for 40 years! (yes~ I blogged about it before My Affair with the Capn' )
How can they stop selling this wonderful cereal?
What am I gonna do?
Is there an Capn' Crunch anonymous?

Am I going to turn out like the character Elaine Bene, from Seinfield, when they stopped selling her contraceptive "The Sponge"? {I could see myself running to all the stores buying it up}

All I have to say to Pepsi Company which owns my beloved Capn' Crunch is this...

It reminds me of when my favorite coffee/tea shop closed. I had this addiction to this drink called half and half. It was half white chocolate mix, half latte'. It was soooo yummy. I would get one ALMOST daily. You couldn't make them at home to taste the same. Believe me I tried. I bought every white chocolate mix I could find...nothing worked. I finally had to let it go. So sorry to hear about your Cap'n.

Good thing I've never liked cereal, lol.

Our world has pretty much been turned upside down right now and I'll be so glad for Monday to be over with and hopefully receive good news next week about Sarah. I hope.

Love, Linda

First: Do as I do get a hold of The Captain or a store and buy a bulk, I mean a truck load will last for some time.

Second: Realize your government is behind this to some degree in wanting to control what we eat.

Third: Find a new vice fast before you run out of your stock pile!

Years ago I had a Gall Bladder issue and when trying to diagnose the problem they discovered my cholesterol was through the roof <367> The Dr went crazy and started giving me this diet speech. I interrupted him and said Doc we need to be straight with each other now. I don’t get high any more, I don’t drink any more and I don’t chase woman anymore “SO YOU AINT TOUCHING MY FUCKING FOOD!” He is a friend now and I exercise and take Lipitor so we are both kind of happy.

My point is we need us some comfort food.

I agree with Mark, if you have too highjack a semi load of it. If they ever take Hersey's Hugs off the market I will go postal. My blow up would make the St. Helen's volcano look like a minor burp. DONT MESS WITH THE GOOD STUFF, we all need certain things to get us thru the daily bad stuff. You have my sympathy Janis.
