A quick stop at your local supermarket can turn into a challenge
for the taste buds, as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the
Crystal Skull tie-ins are appearing on everything from cereals
to snack crackers. But as my stomach growled louder than the rolling
boulder at the beginning of Raiders I held my ground, and
passed over some of the "action filled" cereals from Kellogg's
that filled the aisle end cap display. As I stared the tiger (Tony
the Tiger wearing a fedora on Frosted Flakes) down, I made my decision,
and carefully balanced different boxes of cereals, as not to have
them come tumbling down. I chose wisely, as it was a two boxes for
$6.00 sale, and picked up my box of Frosted Flakes and Cocoa Krispes,
and pushed my shopping cart as fast as I could before I ended up
buying the Apple Jacks and Corn Pops emblazoned with Indiana Jones
cracking his whip!
But then as made my way toward the bottled water, I saw more Indy,
this time on Cheez-It Crackers, again on sale two boxes for $4.00.
Okay, just these. I bravely passed up the Keebler Chocolate Mint
Grasshopper cookies offering the Raiders of the Lost Ark
DVD and head on to finish my shopping.
Almost done, I made my way to the milk, and there frozen in all
its glory, Indiana Jones M&M Ice Cream Cookie sandwiches. "No
more", I shouted; "No more"! Okay, maybe just one
box and then I moved on to the checkout lines. The cashier looked
at my items and said; "you must really like Indiana Jones,
huh" ( as if my Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal
Skull T-shirt didn't give it away). "Oh are those movies
back?" I shrugged, and made my way out to the car.
After all these food items I wonder if even Indiana Jones can help
me find my waistline?
