Welcome to my blog for reviewing the best Mexican restaurants and food in Orange County, CA. I intend to cover as many as I can . . . and all sorts and price ranges: "From taco trucks to fine dining . . . and everything inbetween." Newer entries tend to focus on photos more than words. Number of restaurants covered so far: 268+. See The List
Recently ordered a couple boxes of Quisp, a cereal introduced in the 1960's by Quaker Oats. I would've ordered a Quisp t-shirt at the same time but they were out of stock when I placed my cereal order. The cereal's mascot is a quirky little pink alien with a green outfit and beanie-like propellor sticking out of his head. The cereal was discontinued sometime in the early to mid 1970's but was reintroduced a few years back as the only cereal you can only get over the Internet (there is a very small handful of supermarkets in the mid-West that sell it). Apart from the fact that each piece of cereal is shaped like a flying saucer (i.e., an indented disc) it is exactly like Cap'n Crunch but somehow it tastes better when it comes out of a Quisp box. The back of the box features Part 1 of a Spumco cartoon created by John Krisfaluci, the guy who gave us Ren and Stimpy. Part 2 is on the Quisp website.
Now what connection does this have to Mexican food? Not much except that the commercials for them were animated in Mexico by the same studio that animated the old Rocky and Bullwinkle show.
