Except that it is better that they are made from wheat and barley than from grape nuts. Cheerios may have traces of oats in them so we can draw some parallel with Lance who has traces of many things in him, or has at different times. Cheerios go soggy very quickly and tend to be thrown away quite quickly. Crack may be better value for money.
