Ready Brek Advert

Ready Brek was (and still is) a breakfast cereal that looked like sawdust, and you added hot milk to make a sort of smooth porrige. You could make it very thick and stodgy or as runny as soup. It was one of those things my Mum usually wouldn't buy, so of course I always wanted it. I think there was also a chocolate version.

The TV advert for Ready Brek had two kids going to school on a cold day, one kid was shivering and miserable, and the other one - the one who had Ready Brek for breakfast, of course - was outlined in red, and was warm and happy. I think the slogan was something like "Central Heating for Kids".

    The only cereal that allegedly gave you a radioactive orange glow according to the ad. Never saw my mate who ate it regularly get one though!!!

    I remember Ready Brek. Various adverts were used over the years. There was indeed a chocolate version, I think it was originally called Ready Brek Chocolate Flavour, but was later renamed Coco Brek. Also along came a Golden Brek, can't remember what flavour that was. I think the orange / red glow was a TV trick somehow, whether you had it cold or hot wouldn't give you that glow in the real world.

    I never got that orange glow either. Was quite tasty in winter with some sugar on it. Kid's porridge really. ;0)

    I remember that Ad. I remember my sister having it for breakfast and asking me if I could see the red glow yet, and my reply was - not yet, you betta eat more. My mum used to let us put coco powder in it as it made it taste better.
