I’ve been a fan of Matt Groening and The Simpsons, going back as far as the fourth grade when I discovered the "Life is Hell" strips in the Oregonian's weekly A&E pullout. A lot of the strips from that era were lewd and unnerving for someone so young to be looking at them but the "School is Hell" compilation was considered comedy gold by my friends and I back then.
So obviously I've been digging all of the hype surrounding The Simpsons Movie and I've made repeated stops at 7-11 for Squishee-branded Slurpees. I've got a 6 pack of Buzz Cola chilling in my fridge and I even bought a box of Krusty-O's. But as Bart could probably tell you (if he actually existed and all that), Krusty-branded products tend to be hit or miss.
Krusty-O's are definitely a miss. I opened my box expecting at least the same sort of half-hearted but still somewhat original teeth-rotting sugar glop typically found in other movie-tie in cereals. Instead, Krusty-O's are nothing more than...
...yup, generic Froot Loops. Still, generic Froot Loops are better than generic Froot Loops with a "free jagged metal Krusty-O in every box!"
