Were people having trouble meeting their Recommended Daily Intake of chocolate, so we needed to put it in their otherwise healthy breakfast cereal?

When I tweeted this photo the other day, a few people pointed out the horrifying amount of unnecessary packaging for 4 pieces of fruit. And while I agree that the amount of plastic used here is ridiculous, what drew my attention to this product is that it’s an apple that’s been made to taste like grapes. Why the fuck would anyone make this product? If I wanted the taste of grapes, I would each grapes. It’s not like grapes are hard to come by. They are right next to the Grapples in the grocery store. I don’t want my apples to taste like grapes! I want my apples to taste like apples! I have never – and I’m willing to bet that no one has ever – bitten into an apple and thought, “It’s OK, but I sure wish it tasted like a grape.”

  1. For my American readers, “Kraft dinner” is what we can macaroni and cheese in Canada. Well, it’s what we call mac & cheese that’s made by Kraft. []

    I’m going to have to admit that Chocolate Cheerios are a favorite in my house!

    Cheerios aren’t that healthy, really… not horrific but they have a fair amount of sugar. Chocolate Cheerios sound delicious.

    LOL! Wow, I did not expect so many defenders of Chocolate Cheerios!

    But, yeah, I agree that regular Cheerios aren’t the healthiest thing in the world, but they are relatively healthy compared to, say, the super sugary types of cereal.

    How can one NOT defend chocolate?!
