Upcycled Treasures In The Colors Of Froot Loops

Growing up we were provided a healthy and almost completely organic diet.  Which means of course that all I wanted was Mac and Cheese and Froot Loops.  Once in a great while, during the summer, I was able to pick out a cereal that I wanted and that wasn't filled with nuts and straw.   I almost always picked Froot Loops; their bright cheerful color and fruity smell always promised me all kinds of fun.   But I have to admit they do look and smell better than they actually taste. 

I still think it is a fun cereal although not exactly something I would let my kids (or future Grandkids) load up on either but how could anyone resist their eye-popping rainbow of colors?
