Ok, yeah, it's on now. It's going to be one heck of a summer...in terms of superhero food. You've probably seen these already but I would be remiss in my duties if I didn't have the Superman v. Batman cereal blog entry. Up, up and away:
I recently referred to Marvel & DC's summer movie promotions this year as quality vs. quantity. But don't mistake that for an unnecessary slam against DC. There is definitely something to be said for quantity and DC is definitely going for it with the whole "one of each" approach.
So we get Superman Caramel Crunch Cereal and Batman Chocolate Strawberry Cereal. Two for the price of two! When it comes to this clash of titans you really can vote with your wallet. But let's face it, you'll probably just buy both like me. Now, let's crack 'em open:
My take is that the Superman cereal is way better. Chocolate and strawberries may taste great together but but artificial chocolate flavoring and artificial strawberry flavoring do not. But I do appreciate the little bit of extra effort of making them in little bat shapes and little "S" shield shapes. Now let's flip over the boxes and do our morning reading:
On the Superman cereal you get the standard Superhero Quiz and on the Bat Box you get a rundown of each of their abilities which serves to highlight the absolute absurdity of a fight between a person with god-like powers and a person who has a rigorous workout routine.
