Flaky corn

The Students' Union shop sells individual portions of breakfast cereals, foil-sealed in plastic bowls with milk and a spoon.  Somehow this makes me want to slap someone.

The excessive packaging and waste of production/distribution resources comprise one major objection, but more than that it's the OTT convenience of it, pandering to and encouraging a total absence of forethought. Someone who can't think ahead far enough to organise it for him/herself doesn't deserve breakfast.

J. tells me this product line is nothing new, but it was to me.

It's marketed at students - what do you expect? :)

Maybe. In case my wording was ambiguous, it's sold by the SU, but not it's something they've devised themselves these are mass-produced packages from Kellogg's. I suppose students would be a major market, but I don't think it's student-specific.

In a way, it's even less appropriate for Lancaster students, as they're almost all within 1 km of their own kitchens.
