I’m a bit of a child. Not sure if you’ve been able to figure that out through reading this blog. Thankfully I have friends who will indulge my childlike nature. My buddy goes to Florida every year and brings me cereal treasures from down under. Ya see, up here in the true north strong and free, we don’t get Cocoa Pebbles cereal. Such a shame, really. We used to. I ate it as a kid all the time but then it was suddenly taken away from me (Ok, us). I googled “Why no Cocoa Pebbles in Canada?” and found my response. According to Gluten Free Doll’s blog, she wrote to the people at Post Cereal and here’s what they wrote back:
“Due to character licensing and copyright issues, the Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles cannot be sold in Canada at this time. It is also due to Canadian law popular cartoon characters on the television cannot sell products such as cereal. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for using Post.”
So there you have it. Looks like I’m going to have to continue to have my friends bring in Cocoa Pebbles through the US border for the forceable future. Thankfully I have good people in my life who value my childlike qualities.
