Alien Berry Punch Flavored Oat Cereal

This was the weirdest cereal I’ve had in a while. The cereal consists of yellow marshmallow stars, brown oat puffs, blue alien shapes, and a bizarre Cookie Crisp-style discus. It’s a good snack as a dry cereal, but once exposed to milk, the ingredients seem to break down and deteriorate into a frothy foam-like substance that isn’t very desirable. Even still, I ate it because it seemed cool and I liked the shapes.
