DailyDirt: Breakfast of Champions...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Breakfast is supposedly the more important meal of the day. But does it matter what you eat for breakfast? There are plenty of incredibly unhealthy-sounding breakfast menus, but people are always coming up with even more outrageous breakfast items. Here are just a few examples of how kids can start their day. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!)

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Kickstart is pretty good, but I prefer an actual energy drink like Rip It, Monster, or Amp.

    Free breakfast

    The free breakfast at McDonald's was driven by the fact that a full belly leads to less distractions, and thus better scores. It was pushed mainly for low income families that might have to send hungry kids to school just because they don't have a lot of food in the house, so at the base of it was a core of good intent.

      I suppose, if you count a really excellent marketing opportunity as "good intent".

    Kickstart is okay, but it gives me heartburn.

    Not that much caffeine really

    Regarding Kickstart, most coffee people buy from places like Starbucks has 2-4 times the caffeine per ounce. This drink doesn't even have all that many calories, 80, relative to other breakfast drinks such as orange juice.
