stupidity for sure

any grain that is made into another shape
such as this
loses most of its nutritional value

I think I have to agree with tempest. I know square sandwhich loses most of it's nutritional value when I eat it as a diamond. Still it's fun to eat those diamond shaped pieces of bread, but not too often. I hate to lose all that nutrition.

Recent advances in cereal technology have allowed us to take Shreddies cereal to a whole new level of geometric superiority.

Hey... that's not nice.

May you abstain from consuming Shreddies of any shape and thus be constipated for days.

This new diamond shape is far more likely to get lodged in the trachea. Damn these Canadian health standards.

Canadians are smart enough to see the humour though - it's our neighbors that will have that worry. ;)

No 100% Whole Wheat cereal would have that much marketing money put into it in America. We're too busy marketing marshmallows shaped like trinkets.

That's by far the most amusing/hilarious thing i've seen in a while.

But then again, you can see the strength of persuasion and peer influence. The mind is a weak thing, sometimes.
But in my opinion, that was pure genius.
