Never use that anyway. I buy cooking margarine to fry things that
don't like to be fried in oil, like pancakes and omelettes.

Probably does.

I think there are about 20 different kinds of breakfast cereal in the
supermarket I go to, most of them the "healthy" kind; cornflakes and
rice krispies are old hat already. I remember thinking that
cornflakes were a fabulous foreign food when I was a child (in the
sixties) but I can't imagine them being unusual in the eighties.
Anyway, I spent 1978-1980 in England :-)

The only granola-type things I like are Jordan's maple and pecan (but
I prefer the bars) and Quaker's Energy Mix, which we call "exciting

I'll try the American deli in Amsterdam when I go there anyway on
Saturday (if it still exists). I have a strange craving for golden
syrup (probably PMT coming up). I happen to have plenty of maple
syrup, but somehow I don't think that will work, it's much too thin,
even if the flavour would be great. I also have some chocolate
krispies, just short of a portion, that I could experiment with.
