In appreciation of our modern times

I would like to take a moment to give due recognition to a fantastic product known as Multi Grain Cheerios, and to the General Mills corporation to produces it.

Multi Grain Cheerios taste great, have limited sugar content, and contain nearly every vitamin the human body needs to survive. Before I go into more detail, here is what is contained in one serving of Multi Grain Cheerios plus milk (i.e. about 1/12th of a box)

Calories – 150
Calories from Fat – 10
Total Fat – 1g
Cholesterol – 0mg
Sodium – 160mg
Potassium – 85mg
Total Carbohydrate – 23g
Dietary Fiber – 3g
Sugars – 6g
Other Carbohydrate – 15g
Protein 2g

Vitamin A – 15%
Vitamin C – 25%
Calcium – 25%
Iron – 100%
Vitamin D – 25%
Vitamin E – 35%
Thiamin – 100%
Riboflavin – 100%
Niacin – 100%
Vitamin B6 – 100%
Folic Acid – 100%
Vitamin B12 – 110%
Pantothenic Acid – 100%
Phosphorus – 20%
Magnesium – 8%
Zinc – 100%

To begin with, you should notice that this contains 100% of your daily recommended iron intake. Iron is critical for maintaining adequate oxygen flow in the blood, and many Americans are chronically malnourished when it comes to iron.

Secondly, nearly every vitamin is covered. Short of Vitamin A and Protein, a human can practically survive on Multi Grain Cheerios and milk alone. There is substantial potassium, adequate fiber and carbohydrates, limited fat, and a reasonable amount of the other key vitamins the body needs. A diet rich in whole grains is terrific for the heart and helps one maintain good body weight and physique. In short, Multi Grain Cheerios are an outstanding product.

Best of all, I bought my 2 boxes in a buy 1, get 1 free sale. The total cost to me was a mere $2.00/box! With a deal this good, how could anybody say no? Thanks to the marvels of modern supply chain management, this product should be available at any 7-11 or corner store in the United States, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. I feel truly blessed to live in these modern times.
