Spartan Brand

I'm a grocery snob. I like my groceries to come in pretty boxes and be slightly expensive so that I feel I'm getting something good. However, now that I'm living on a budget, sometimes I have to scrimp a little, so on my last grocery store trip, I bought Spartan brand cereal. I don't know how wide-reaching Spartan brand is, so let me tell those of you out of Spartan's range that it's basically a generic brand with a label. It's cheap food in cheap packaging. It's Trader Joe's redneck cousin. With that said, Busch's, my neighborhood grocery store, was selling Spartan cereal at 4 for $5. We eat a lot of cereal in this house, so I decided to go for it, and picked out one box of each of the following: honey toasted o's, bran flakes, raisin bran and frosted shredded wheat. We started with the raisin bran... and it's okay! It tastes like raisin bran! I wrongfully judged you, Spartan brand, and I'm sorry. I still don't know if I'll make the switch to becoming a Spartan shopper, but I'll keep it in mind.

Spartan brand - B+
