Fun Facts & Crafts With Anna Lineback

National Cereal Day Edition!

I’m sorry that I missed last week's craft :(

~ Astronauts ate Kellogg’s Corn Flakes aboard Apollo 11, the first moon landing ~

~Kellogg’s breakfast cereals “Honey Smacks” and “Golden Crisp” have more than 50% sugar~

~Advertisements of cereals started targeting children after the Second World War~

~Cheerios were first called “Cheerioats” but Quaker Oats complained so the name was changed in 1945~

~Corn Pops are one of the top 15 best-selling cereals worldwide~

~Cap’n Crunch’s full name is Horacio Magellan Crunch~

~Cap’n Crunch was also born on Crunch Island in the Sea of Milk~

~Thurl Ravenscroft, the man who voiced the Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes mascot, Tony the Tiger, was the same man who sang “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” in Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”~

~The pink heart in Lucky Charms is original, and has never been changed or excluded!

Three lunches and a meme


WELCOME TO SCHOOL LUNCH REVIEWS! MY NAME IS ANNA STUDER, AND I AM A FOOD CRITIC. I HAVE BEEN TAKING PHOTOS OF MY LUNCH SINCE THE THIRD MONDAY OF SCHOOL. I don’t want to make the lunch ladies look bad, because they have to make lunch for 600 students a day, and the government won't let them make things that they could last year, so imagine how difficult it must be. THEY WORK SO HARD, AND I JUST WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT. I HOPE YOU ENJOY!

Meme of the week:

If “my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard was in the renaissance era”

It definitely surpasses yours. Haha!😁🥛
