In a Pinch, Caramel Corn Can Be Eaten Like Breakfast Cereal

One of vendors at Downtown Summer Nights is R&J’s Kettle Corn. I was speaking to one of the proprietors of that fine establishment about people who buy kettle corn from them regularly. She said some buy a lot and freeze it so they always have some on hand. Other’s buy some to keep in their car when they go on road trips. She told me one buys the caramel corn and pours milk over it and eats it like cereal.

Eating caramel corn like breakfast cereal, you say? This, I have to try!

As soon as I got home, I pulled out my best cereal bowl (which is also my only cereal bowl), poured milk over it to try it out for myself.

Immediately, the caramel corn started to absorb the milk. At first, I thought to myself I was about to eat a mushy bowl of popcorn flavored gruel. As it turned out, it wasn’t half bad! Sure, the popcorn started sponging up the milk, much like puffed rice does, but the caramel part kept it crisp enough to finish your bowl. You’ll probably have to eat it pretty fast, or don’t do what I did and fill the entire bowl full of cereal.

So, just so you know, in a pinch, caramel corn can be used as a substitute for breakfast cereal. It’s probably just a healthy as most cereals on the market, too.
