Belgium All Bran

So we are going to Europe for a month, just knocking around, visiting places we never saw before. And Barbara is saying she needs to pack on a load of Kellogg’s All Bran, because that what it takes to keep her fit.

All this time I’m thinking about Barbara lugging several boxes of All Bran aboard airplanes and trains, and I reassure her. I tell her she needs to think positively. I’m sure she can get Kellogg’s All Bran all over Europe, and I pull up a display from the popular Carrefour markets in Belgium.

Look, I say. You can get it anywhere in Europe. Do not pack a bunch of All Bran for the trip.

Then we go on our trip, and the following morning we take the train into Brussels from the airport, and we settle into out B&B. Then we go shopping, and look. There is Kellogg’s All Bran on the shelf. And she buys a box, and she is happy.

And we go to Amsterdam and then to Cologne, and soon the box of All Bran is eaten, and we need to get more. I assure you, we stayed a day in Cologne, seven days in Freiburg, five days in Konstanz, two days in Hamburg, and a few days in Copenhagen. And we never saw another box of Kellogg’s All Bran Original.

Yes, this is from a store in Freiburg. Only in Brussels do they like Kellogg’s All Bran Original. Travelers need to beware. We learned the lesson the hard way.
