Team members will toss them out to spectators at all the races, they will be the only permissible food in team musettes, "Cyclocross got you down? How 'bout a Psimet Pierogi handup!?"

Dude, you should start a new company - it's be the next great thing!
Great idea. I would love to find pierogies in my musette. I will have to run that one by my mother...

OMG - entirely true for me. I was never allowed to have any as a child, so it is a huge treat for me now... even though I've eaten it more over the last decade.
I eat this stuff for snacks, dessert, and whenever I can.

Total parenting backfire! I was allowed sugar cereal once a year--I could choose between my birthday and Christmas, although every year my Mom would forget which one I'd chosen and I'd talk her into letting me have it for both. Then I'd go away to a week-long tennis camp and I swear I would eat Lucky Charms three meals a day.

Although I guess it wasn't a complete fail as my cravings are for Kashi stuff, Raisin Bran, Cheerios, etc.

MMMmmmmmm....musettes.

cereal - I stopped having it in the house because i could house it in one sitting if i wanted to.

Let tell of a story from my childhood. While living in Bloomington, IN around the time that breaking Away was shot - to set the scene for you - my mother brought home a dozen, warm, glazed doughnuts from the local Jewel (which last time I was in B-ton was a mr. D's - next to the Osco over on the East Side).

i sat down and had one. then I had another. I continued to eat the entire dozen. it was at this time it dawned on me that I was always pissed off because whenever the family had gotten doughnuts they had never gotten "enough" and I was only ever allowed to have "2" or so. This was truly the first time I had been allowed to eat what I thought each person should eat of these fine foods.

My mother was livid and I have spent the rest of my life running from doughnuts.

Negative. This evening I'll be attenting my other guilty pleasure: 5 and 6 year olds playing basketball at the school gym. My kid's got mad hops on the court.

Friday? Saturday? Sunday? Lemme know.

I was thinking about you guys on Sunday night - I flew over your pad on my way out of MDW, on my way to SEA... I asked, but they said we couldn't stop in, not even for a 3x5.

Peanut butter I "get", but Pop Tarts baffle me. They taste like what I think sugar coated cardboard would taste like.

they are like cereal - something I was Absolutely Never allowed to have as a child - so they have that going for them... but they taste enough like bad-tasting frosting on thick crackers for me to really enjoy it.

Some really expensive therapy might possibly cure this.

i generally eat the chive and potato ones. it is all i can get in the bulk "family pack" locally. i would love to try homemade ones. my fiancee says she is going to try to make some "healthy" ones for me someday (she is a health nut)

I used to sit with my mom watching monk and the two of us would kill a bag of the stuff when we weren't paying attention.

So good!

I loved the cinnamon ones but they don't make them anymore. That's probably a good thing.

In college our guy's team would go to the cafeteria after practice, get food*, eat, give a 2 minute warning, then descend on the cereal en masse. Lucky charms were a perennial favorite.

*I use this term loosely. Sometimes it seemed like cereal was the only they hadn't screwed up cooking.
