Can Cereal Fight the Swine?

In a desperate effort to protect our children from the almighty Swine flu, Kellogg’s delicious Cocoa Krispies cereal now comes armed and ready for battle against the unsightly monster.

Kellogg's Cocoa Krispies Cereal

Kellogg’s has increased the levels of vitamins A, B, C, and E in all their cereals from a 10% daily value to 25%. Despite this, Cocoa Krispies cannot save you from the long arm of H1NI.

It’s great that Kellogg’s cereals are even more enriched, and it doesn’t hurt, but fortified cereals don’t give you nearly as much nutrition as a glass of orange juice, carrots, or an ounce of almonds.

Once again, another chance for a company to capitalize on people’s fears and to exaggerate the seriousness of H1NI to stick their products to the masses.

I’ll eat Cocoa Krispies for its delicious chocolatey taste and I’ll fight the Swine on my own.
