Ye Olde Cereals

I'm not sure if my taste buds changed or if Cookie-Crisp cereal changed. But I don't buy it anymore when we hit Price Chopper on a day trip to the States. I find it too sweet.

Yet when I stumbled across the Cereal Box Archive, the first one I looked for was Cookie-Crisp.

The box pictured is from the early 1980s, I think. Much better than the crap illustrations used today.

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away

In April, we reported that the popular restaurant Arahova was coming to the Queen Mary Rd., just west of Decarie. Arahova was to become another Greek food option, joining the deliciously inexpensive Amazona not far away on Côte St. Luc Rd.

But alas, the universe is a fickle place and my dream of two chicken-pita options within walking distance died. A sign on the covered up windows of Amazona announces that it has closed its doors forever. I am glad that I got the chance to enjoy a final meal there a few weeks ago. Had I known it was the last one, I would have tried to finish the side order of roasted potatoes.

In the place of Amazona will be Carmine's Tuscan Grill.
