Cereal Rant

As long as we're in the kitchen, I have a question for the people at General Mills. What the bloody freaking hell is up with the cinnamon on the Cinnamon Toast Crunch? Was it formulated to survive a nuclear holocaust? Okay, fine, that's two questions. My point is, I just put away the clean dishes from the recently cycled dishwasher. There were no cereal bowls to be found among those clean dishes. Among the clean dishes were a roasting pan that had bits of crusty, roasted veggies clinging to it before the dishwasher did its magical thing. There was a shiny soup pot that previously had potatoes and cream and smoked sausage simmered in it. And it sat out on the stove overnight before being washed! Everything else was sparkly and clean, just not the bowls that had been used for the Cinnamon Toast Crunch. They retained tiny brown speckles that had to be scrubbed off by hand! This concerns me. And flies in the face of my refusal to rinse the dishes before they are loaded into the dishwasher. Why not use a little soap while you're at it and put the dish in the drainer so it's totally clean and ready to be used again? Why bother with the extra step of running it through the dishwasher if it's already clean? The mysterious part is how the teensy cinnamon flakes remain only on the dishes that were used to eat the cereal. With all that water swishing about you'd think they'd contaminate everything. So I will ask you once again, people at General Mills, just what the bloody freaking hell is up with the cinnamon on the Cinnamon Toast Crunch? You may reply in the comment section. Thank you.
