I've found my happy place. Sadly it's all the way in London and I'm not there anymore, but this was seriously one of the greatest establishments I've ever set foot in. It's called Cereal Killer Cafe and it is home to 200 different types of cereals, any of which you can choose to complete your perfect bowl of cereal to enjoy at this retro, colorful, hopping place. So many nostalgic childhood feelings emerged from seeing all the brands of cereal I grew up loving, and choosing just one bowl of cereal was probably the hardest decision I've had to make since coming abroad. You can combine any number of cereals with any choice of milk (options are extensive too - think almond, vanilla, and even banana!) with toppings like fruit, candy, and anything else you might find in a froyo joint. As if that all isn't tempting enough, they have twenty or so "cocktails," which are bowls they've created themselves that they thought were worthy of putting up on the wall for customers to order. For example, the Double Rainbow consists of fruity pebbles, fruit loops, lucky charms marshmallows, and strawberry milk. S'more Than Words is made of golden grahams, lucky charms marshmallows, and chocolate milk (this was Gwen's excellent choice). I opted for what was called The Nutcase, made of crunchy nut clusters, honey nut chex, crunchy nut cornflakes, hazelnuts, and almond milk. I managed to almost ruin the experience by spilling my milk all over myself, but the cereal was so incredible that I nearly forgot that happened! It was so crunchy and sweet and wonderful, and the almond milk added the extra nutty flavor that enhanced it even more. Gwen's was fantastic as well, and hers was much prettier than mine, which was all shades of brown and golden, but it disappeared so fast I didn't care at all what it looked like! I'm so glad I made it to Cereal Killer Cafe while in London, it was certainly an experience I'll never forget. The whole trip was truly unforgettable, and I hope to make it back to London for a longer period of time in the future! I felt so strangely at home there, even though the city had so many different people, accents, and vibes that I couldn't put any sort of label on it. Second best part of the trip? I found Lululemon!
