Goop in the Cereal: Received from England, Germany & the US

Wow, I love this Snoopy card so much.

It’s from England, from a Snoopy-infatuated post-pal who usually has a hard time finding Snoop-cards to send, but she tells me, “it was actually in my collection of cards and I had 2!”

I also really love this “aloha” card, which came to me from Düsseldorf, Germany via Postcard United.

The sender tells me:

I am a 30-year-old highschool teacher… at the moment, I am enjoying my holidays. Mainly by reading a lot because the weather is not very good and I do not have the opportunity to travel this time.

Here, from Sunnyvale, California via a Postcrossing Forum “food and drinks” tag trade, comes a fascinating fact about coffee, which is either true, or not so much:

The sender tells me:

This “fun fact” really grosses me out, yet here I am, drinking my morning cup of coffee!!

I was on my second cup as I read that.

I’m more grossed out by this cereal box panel, sent to me from Bad Meinberg, Germany, in a food package postcard tag

The sender writes about the cereal:

It’s a new edition because it is baked with popcorn. It tastes good but not as good as I expect it. Do you have similar cereal combinations in the USA?

No–or at least not that I know of. What is grossing me out is that once I read the cereal brand is “Vitalis,” it sparked some basic relic of information in my brain (which I confirmed with an internet search): “Vitalis” was a gross hair product men used to use in the 1970s. Now I know why the cereal isn’t as good as that guy expected.

Stamps! Some really special ones this time, don’t you think?
