Above: Marukin 5-Pack Honey Puffs.
You may be seduced, as I was, by these bunnies’ imploring eyes and coquettish posturing. The name “honey puffs” may conjure fond memories of certain breakfast cereals. And at least from a distance, these don’t look too bad, do they?
But be not fooled. Apply pressure with your molars, and those little balls turn into sugary dust. Which means, if you inhale as you chew, you’ll end up with sugar dust on your uvula & soft palate. Then it’s gag city.
Even if you don’t get dry-heave-inducing granules on your soft palate, though, honey puffs are bland–a little bit sweet and nothing else. Skip them, and save up for rice crackers, Yan-Yan or Hi-Chew.
