How Do You Keep The Cereal Mix?

This will last about a week in an airtight container or jar on the counter. If you plan to make a large batch and keep it longer, you can store it in the refrigerator too. Because none of the ingredients really need to be chilled, it isn’t going to go bad outside of the fridge. It will just get kind of not so crunchy.

Who is Cupid?

“In classical mythology, Cupid (Latin Cupīdō [kʊˈpiːdoː], meaning “passionate desire”) is the god of desire, erotic love, attraction and affection. He is often portrayed as the son of the love goddess Venus and the god of war Mars. He is also known in Latin as Amor (“Love”). His Greek counterpart is Eros.” So basically, cupid is powerful when it come to love. That is why the arrows he shoots make people fall into true love. So of course, we should all make Cupid Crunch, right? His mother is Aphrodite and for the record, she is my favorite god is Greek mythology.
