The Case of the Stolen Weetabix

September 25, 2015

No snack is safe on the Food52 editorial table.


When Sarah received a box of Weetabix in the mail (from the United Kingdom—straight from the source!), she yelped with joy. She absolutely adores this cereal, which is reminiscent of a cold, no-cook, mushier oatmeal. Shortly after the excitement started to subside, snack tragedy hit. Kenzi let Sarah down William Carlos Williams-style. The moral of the story: Hide your Weetabix.

Kenzi is riffing on Neruda - sounds like Sarah was oblivious. Eye roll.

Plums in the Icebox is a William Carlos Williams poem, not Neruda.
