Cinnamon Life Cereal

I have a huge double box of Cinnamon Life cereal and I tasted Lucy's leftovers this morning (dry we don't put milk on our cereal in our house!) and it is so good. I forgot what it tasted like. I haven't had this cereal since I was a kid (probably since they were still running the ad I posted above!).

I want to make something with it but can only find one recipe on the web. I guess I need to go through some of my cookbooks but thought I would give a shout out to all of you foodies out there and see if you had any ideas. With fall supposedly making an appearance tomorrow something with this in it would be really yummy. So please help me out if you can.

Life is good whether I get a recipe or not as I am sure I can make something up!

I don't have the recipe, but isn't there something that (1) takes yummy crunchy things and (2) stirs them into melted butterscotch (or chocolate) bits and condensed milk,and (3)drops them into globs on wax paper? That sounds good to me.

Oh, you could have said, "Cinnamon Life is Good" as your closing today - smile!

Anne - ooh that sounds good. I have made something like that with pretzels and other stuff and bet it would be good with the cereal too.

ps...too clever on the closing line I wish I had come up with!

You eat cereal dry? Huh. Why?

Actually, if you go to, they have some recipes using their different products. You have to click on the "products" section, and it'll be under the individual cereals. But other than making cereal/popcorn balls with it I'm kind of at a loss. lol. Good luck!

Ley - thanks. I didn't even think to look through their website for a recipe! Oh and we don't eat milk on cereal because I don't like milk. My son drinks a glass of milk on the side with his cereal and me and my daughter just forgo the milk.
