Actually I think it was Shredded Wheat, not Weetabix.

Yes?

I always felt like three was a lot, my now my two year old eats three, so I don't know what to believe.

Yeah, definitely Shredded Wheat. I feel like Ian Botham might have been involved.

It was Shredded Wheat, although you have to be pretty old to remember it.

The hotel kitchen staff are in disbelief. Someone in room 147 has ordered three Shredded Wheat. The maid transports them upstairs to find England cricketer Ian Botham waiting at a table, dressed in full whites.

The maid leaves. Botham hides one of the Shredded Wheat under a napkin and winks to camera. Cue music, as the slogan "Shredded Wheat. Bet you can't eat three" appears.

This advert and others featuring football manager Brian Clough and the actor Richard Kiel, who played Jaws in James Bond films, have not run for some time. Nestle, which owns the brand, says the last probably aired in 1984.

They had the advert on much later than that. I wasn't born until the year after and I remember it. It was also a cheat code on European Club Soccer on the Mega Drive to give you better players.

Maybe you were born earlier than you claim and you have just been lying to everybody about your age?

Maybe I've thrown off the shackles of the immutable linearity of time. That or my dad taped some cartoons for my older sisters...

This brings up the classic question, what is the plural of Weetabix? Weetabices? Weetabi?

I think your dad did it deliberately to confuse you into thinking that you had lived through the late 70s/early 80s.

I don’t know why he did it, but the evidence shows that he did and I would be extremely concerned that your entire childhood was a lie.

0. The correct number of units of disgusting shite to be putting in to one's body!

To be fair I used to eat them as a child, but have since moved on to more grown up breakfast options like Frosties and ice cream.

My kids used to eat them a lot around the age of 2-3 and would regularly have 2+ weetabix so I don't think a grown adult having 6 is that crazy!

Also what's with the sugar hate people? Obviously drowning weetabix in it is a Bad Idea™ but there's nothing wrong with a moderate amount of sugar in your diet - hell our bodies straight up NEED a degree of glucose to operate efficiently! The current anti-sugar craze seems to be making people think that sugar is inherently evil.

More people die per year in the UK from falling bags of sugar than motoring fatalities - sugar is a real problem.
