"Part of this complete breakfast" 2013-02-05 19:49:26 Reply

Ever notice how literally every commercial for unhealthy children's breakfast cereals has to mention at the end that it's "a part of your complete breakfast"? And the cereal would be shown alongside glasses of orange juice and milk (the milk in the cereal bowl isn't enough?) and toast. And has anyone ever actually made a "complete breakfast" with those cereals? I really doubt this actually convinces parents to buy their Sugar Chemical Crunch (the "make everyone at Walmart hate you and your children" method is much more effective imo).

I think they meant to say "continental" instead of complete.

It's to cover their own backs, and to make sure that people can't sue them when they experience liver failure or whatever.

True story. You don't need to consume milk at all once you stop breastfeeding.

HA... I think that's funny... a "complete" breakfast would be: Eggs, slice of ham or some meat, cereal, milk, fruit (not acidy, unlike oranges or OJ since it would curl the milk in your stomach and probably make you wanna puke.)...
now... that being said... who the fuck has the time in the morning, when you're 1/2 asleep to make all of that? 1, 2, 3 NOT ME

Who has the time to make all that and not burn yourself or start a fire in your own home when half asleep

I wanted to actually make a "complete breakfast" like the one on TV once when I was a kid. We didn't have the necessary stuff (no OJ), so I made the breakfast without it. It didn't seem too special to me when I ate, so either the OJ is the proverbial lynchpin for the whole breakfast experience or the complete breakfast wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Either way, I didn't bother with the ordeal anymore after that, and just went back to having cereal only.

Considering youre breaking an 8hr fast, I think breakfast should be light. Some fruit or something like that.

The way it works: the kids watch the commercials, they go shopping with their parents, they beg and plead and whine and want the cereal and eventually the parents give up and buy it for them. Propaganda success!

Also, wouldn't drinking milk along side orange juice mess up your stomach or is that an urban legend?

Nah, it's not an urban legend at all. Milk really does mess up your stomach. :P

It used to be "complete balanced breakfast" when I was growing up.

Why do they put strawberries on the cereal box when there isn't any strawberries in the cereal?

That pisses me off!

I totally agree. I can't remember how many times I excitedly opened a box of Corn Flakes, only to be disappointed when there weren't any berries in the box like the picture on the cover of the damn box.

Raisin Bran, though, never lied about that. Good ol' Raisin Bran.

What about as a source of calcium? Don't wanna be getting no osteoporosis.

I noticed that when I was little; it's just to remind people to be healthy,you have to add the other vitamins that come from the other food items to make it a complete nutritional meal

All breakfasts are complete, because by the time you've finished it, you've had all your breakfast, therefore you've had a complete breakfast.

It's just another marketing phrase which has no meaning whatsoever.

If you don't drink Orange juice and Milk every breakfast, you don't count as a real person.

Are you actually complaining about breakfast cereals? Some people are born hungry, and stay that way until they are dead from malnutrition and starvation you over-privileged middle class douche.
