Meet Tigre Tono

20110916-mexican-cereal-frosted-flakes.jpgThe food nerds over at Serious Eats conducted a super-scientific comparison of American and Mexican versions of the same sugary cereals, including Froot Loops, Frosted Flakes, Corn Pops and Cocoa Krispies.

Toño is boldly approaching you with some super tough eyebrows and a serious upper body, growling 'Grriquisimas.' No silly thumbs up for this guy, just a semi-menacing stare." [SE]
