A Total Cereal…

“Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt(TOTAL)…” 

        There are many kinds of breakfast cereals out there…Of course, you folks do know what a breakfast cereal is, do you? Well, it is indeed a food product that is made from processed grains and that it is often eaten as the very first meal of the day, and can be mixed with fruit, milk, or even yogurt.

        So it is certainly no surprise that there happens to be a breakfast cereal in which also happens to be the very first and only one that supplies 100% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals by the United States Department of Agriculture(wow, and I thought there were only allowed in the vitamins that I take every morning)!

        Total cereal was made by the General Mills company, and had been launched in 1961; It is very well indeed the very first and only cereal that contains some of these following vitamins and dietary minerals: Vitamin C, calcium, iron, vitamin E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, pantothenic acid, and zinc.

        In addition to regular Total cereal, there are other kinds of flavors of that legendary cereal: Cranberry Crunch, Raisin Bran, Whole Grain, Cinnamon Crunch, and Blueberry Pomegranate(which, surprisingly, does not contain any actual blueberries or pomegranate). Of course, there happens to be other flavored Total cereals that have faded into oblivion: Corn Flakes, Protein, Oatmeal, and Brown Sugar and Oat.

        But the tried-and-true Total cereal remains standing on many a grocery shelf everywhere since it made its debut in 1961…Wonder how they got all of those vitamins in there?
