Cereal Boxes ... mini-rant!

Seriously. What is the point of having those tabs at the top of our cereal boxes? Am I the only person who finds myself tearing at the thing to get the slot open so I'll be able to actually USE the stupid tab?

I'd rather just empty the whole d@mned thing into a Tupperware-like container so I don't have to deal with the splitting and ripping and avoiding the tab. And it's not like a box of cereal lasts in my house for much longer than a day or two, so I don't know why I bother trying to keep it "fresh," when there's really no need.

ACH. Anyway, that's my mini-rant, gripe, whatever you want to call it, for today. Feel free to chime in with your own at your leisure!


  1. Packaging and I do not get along. It's not the cardboard tab, but the container inside that I end up tearing in about four places. Too much work and annoyance for Corn Flakes!

  2. I hear ya! Those drive me nuts, too. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one!

  3. Glad it's not just me. We should start a community for frustrated cereal eaters!
