And whether or not it's OK to eat it for dinner.

Steve, thank you for having breakfast with me today. [MUSIC PLAYING] So I was going to ask you, what your favorite cereal was, but can you give me your top three. That would be-- I have four kids, so giving like I wouldn't tell you what my top three, four favorite kids are. Do you have a favorite mascot? Now that one, that's a little bit the same question, but I have to say Tony. Tony? Tony the Tiger. Can you give me your best impression? There great. Rice Krispies or Cocoa Krispies. Rice Krispies, I think. Why? Because we do Rice Krispies treats as well and we sell lots and lots of those. The treats? Yes. Breakfast or dessert? Both. Both. Why not? For breakfast. Yeah, and lunch. [MUSIC PLAYING] You playing three on three versus Snap, Crackle and Pop, what other two teammates do you choose? Tony the Tiger and Toucan Sam. Because Tony can box out anybody and Toucan can fly straight up to the rim. And what are you doing? Watching. What are your thoughts on having breakfast for dinner? Absolutely. Do you do that often? Yes, very much. Is there a breakfast food you just can't stand? Anything from any my competitors. You're only allowed one Pop Tart flavor for the rest of your life. What is it? Chocolate. Thank you, Steve. Now let's eat. All right.
