How old is too old to be buying Coco Pops?


#21

I’m excited to try these Maple and Pecan beauties.

I’m a get some tomorrow.


#22

Oh! Haha, is it!?! Fuck. If I’m being honest mine was from one of those variety packs…


#23

I just checked, it was the Dorset honey granola at 3.80 in sainsbury’s.

Baked oats, honey, almonds and pecans (it’s the pecans that make it for me), seeds and a hint of vanilla :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Phwoar.


#24

I’d say 7 or maybe 8


#25

but any younger than that is waaay too young


#26

There’s like a two-year window where you’re neither too young nor too old to eat Coco-Pops?


#27

Yeah the Dorset cereals are expensive. Most have raisins or sultanas in so there are only about 3 varieties I can buy, and one of those is half-chocolate or something crazy.

No Theo
Under 9: too young to eat Coco Pops on health grounds
Over 7: too old to eat Coco Pops on maturity grounds


#29

Your poor child. Never to know the sweet wonder of Coco-Pops.


#30

As a child who ate coco-pops for breakfast every day from the age of about 3 to the age of about 15, i can assure him my iron rule is better for him in the long run


#31

“Do as I say, not as I do.”

Fair to say you’ve got this parenting lark down.


#32

I bought a whole box when I was a student and completed it in one day having opted to have Coco Pops for every single meal


#33

I said this to him only this morning as he tried to snatch the lovely glowing rectangle out of my hand for the too-many-th time. but of course he still claims not to fully understand English. (I really need to stop looking at my phone in front of him)


#34

Not going to be popular this, but cereals are rubbish. Either little diabetes bombs packed full of sugar or completely boring like Weetabix or muesli.


#35

That’s not going to happen. F just tells us off. “Stop looking at your phone, dada,” or “Put your phone away”, over and over until we look at her.


#36

yeah it’s hard. mrs s has got a book about it which i think i should read.
