Snacks! Why did it have to be snacks!
28/03/08, 7:11pm EST

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?
