Cap'n Crunch

One of my favorite chapters in Cryptonomicon by Neil Stephenson is all about the best way to eat Cap'n Crunch.

It's true. It is one of the contributing factors that make it a thousand pages long. It's interesting that this one book is about the same length as the entire three books in the Solstice 31 Saga.

Back to Cap'n Crunch. Yes.It is spelled that way. I spent lot's of time as an adult reading the box. Please note: I am a purest when it comes to CC. No Crunchberries or peanut butter or other contaminants, just the original.

Back to Cryptonomicon. Stephenson goes on and on about the proper type of milk, the temp of said milk, how to attain that temp, milk to CC ratios, form factor details of the tiny nuggets and even ideas regarding a custom CC spoon.

He even discusses how to eat it with maximum pleasure while at the same time protecting against the destruction of the roof of your mouth.

--This is the speculative fiction part. Cap'n Crunch always destroys the roof of your mouth.
