over christmas break, our family took an early morning trip to kellogg’s nyc in times square to have a crazy breakfast of cereal with anything you can imagine on top. or in other words, the kind of breakfast my kids (and me, let’s be frank) dream about. eleanor and samson were so confused as we were ordering and kept asking, “wait, i can have chocolate chips IN my cereal?!” lol.
we managed to spill something on our table a total of THREE times during our meal, absolute chaos at one point there! but you know, i call that a success in my book when there are large amounts of liquid in open containers on the table and you have a toddler who’s favorite thing to do is “help.”
the cafe is something fun to try at least once (although it is in the heart of times square, you’ve been warned!), but making up a silly cereal concoction and then eating it, that doesn’t get old, even when you’re 30. they do it with ice cream sundaes as well which could be really good, but we stuck to bowls of cereal since it was 9 in the morning. ;)
something that is fun about the cafe is that once you place your order, your buzzer will ring with a specific “cupboard” number on it. so you go up to the cupboards and get your breakfast from inside it! the kids especially loved this part of the experience!
there are some crazy creations on the menu, and we were a little skeptical to put things like vanilla cake mix on top of frosted flakes or lime zest and passion fruit jam on top of fruit loops! but we did branch out a little (i mixed apple jacks cereal and rice krispies cereal with mini marshmallows, pop tart crumbles and fresh strawberries on top. also, i should note, it was actually delicious and i loved it.) you can see all the creations on the menu here.
the “honey buzz” from the menu was probably my favorite though. it consisted of honey smacks, toasted pecans and banana chips with honey drizzled on top.
samson decided mid way through his bowl that he didn’t like having chocolate chips in his cereal after all and asked me to help him pick them out. haha! i guess it’s a good thing so we don’t start forming a habit of wanting them in our breakfast at home.
i’m glad our kids still love their morning oatmeal after this wild but fun breakfast and haven’t asked for marshmallows or pop tart crumble in their breakfast since. haha! have you guys ever put anything crazy into your breakfast cereal?
