In Case You Wondered


Soaking all night in polyurethane doesn't do a Circus Peanut any good.

Anyway, according to Wikipedia:

In 1963, General Mills vice president John Holahan inventively discovered that Circus Peanuts shavings yielded a tasty enhancement to his breakfast cereal. General Mills formalized the innovation and created Lucky Charms, the first breakfast cereal to contain marshmallow bits (or "marbits").


So there you go.

Speaking of polyurethane, didn't Clark Griswold get a bonus for developing a new cereal shellac?

"it's a floor wax, it's a dessert topping!"
