How ‘Bout a Stone Cold Bowl of Reality?, Reality, Surreality & Cereality
University of Pennsylvania students are supposed to be some of the smartest in the country. It only took them 4 years to realize that they didn’t need to pay $6 for a bowl for Capt. Crunch. It’s true: the Cereality Cereal Cafe at UPenn, the last PA outlet, has sunk to the bottom of the entrepreneurial bowl like so much shredded wheat.
Who could have guessed? A cereal cafe that didn’t make it? When I called Cereality (215-222-1162) to place a take-out order for a bowl of Coco Puffs, the Cereality answering machine broke the news: the West Philly branch is no longer open for business.
What a shocker! When the much-hyped cereal cafe concept was first introduced, several people exclaimed: “Why has no one done this before?”
I guess we have the answer.
This leaves one franchised cafe location in California, one university food court location in Arizona, and a handful that were put inside Cold Stone Creamery locations under the “Two Wrongs Might Make a Right” program from parent Kahala Bad Ideas in Bowls Corp.
