CEREAL BARS and coffee creamer

I went shopping yesterday and grabbed some Special K cereal bars for my morning meal.  I'm not really a breakfast person, but I'm trying to get healthy here so I'm trying to start a routine.  Cereal bars seemed like a good start.  So anyhow, I get home with my little prize and decide... hey, lets try these little puppies out and see how they taste!  It was Peaches and Berries... mmmmmmmmmm!  I should have read the wrapper.  If I had, I would have seen that the bar only weighed .81 oz.  Then I wouldn't have been surprised when I ripped open the packaging and revealed this teenie tiny bar that couldn't be but maybe 1x3.... inches that is!  Its not even a full ounce for crying out loud!  It has maybe the equivelent of 3 spoons full of cereal.  But.... it did smell amazingly good, and after I scarfed it up in 4 bites, I was surprised to admit that yes, I was satisfied!  And so I give my unpaid and unofficial product endorsement to Kellogg's Special K cereal bar, light (.81 oz!), satisfying and only 90 calories!  Shoot, come to think of it chocolate cake would only be 90 calories if you cut the serving down to a 1x3 inch slice!  Yah know what... I may be on to something there.... diet breakfast chocolate cake!

I got some coffee creamer while I was shopping.... LOTS of coffee creamer.  And the real stuff, with all the fat and sugar and carbs a growing body needs!  Dickidoo keeps buying the Fat-Free and Sugar-Free stuff.  He acts like its an accident, but I know better!  He wants me to slim down so he can play with my 'super-model' body.  Yeah, well, buy me a membership to Curves, but don't mess with my coffee creamer!  In the mean time you better get used to my Super-Sized-Model body, cos its not going any where any time real soon.  I read somewhere yesterday that I'm 'volumptuous', not fat!  I like that... volumptuous!  It sounds like a loaf of soft bread, fresh from the oven... with lots of butter dripping over the top! Okay, you know what, this cereal bar is not cutting it.  I need more coffee!

I just called my husband before I sat down to the computer and told him I was out of creamer! I do like the fat free kind, I get the cinnamon vanilla or the carmel. I love em and I need some RIGHT NOW!  I have my mug all ready, the coffee is smelling good and all I need is for him to get his butt home with my cream!  LOL

I'm not a breakfast person, because 1) I usually don't have time, and 2) when I do eat breakfast, it's this huge, honkin' breakfast with eggs and toast with cream cheese and if I'm feeling frisky and there is a baked potato in the fridge, hash browns.  And don't lay that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day" on me either.  Coffee is.

Years ago when the Milky Way Lite bar came out I decided to try it. I soon figured out why it was lite. It had the same ingreadents as a regular Milky Way, it was just smaller. Why pay the same amount for a smaller candy bar? Who wants a Lite candy bar anyway? Surley not me.
Hugs, R.C.

I have tried the special k they are good but small.
I tried the south beach breakfast bars because they were on sale and they were great and I think they are a little bigger.
I ate them all so I cant say for sure...lol
The only one I didnt care for is the chocolate because I felt like I was eating a candy bar for breakfast.
However I would have no problem eating chocolate cake for breakfast....lol
