Japanese Granola

There are a lot of reasons why it's great to have visitors.  It's nice to see friends and family.  It gives an excuse to go sightseeing, eat out, and relax in the onsen.  And sometimes these visitors bring home interesting things from the grocery store that somehow missed my eyes.  I suppose this one that my friend left could easily be passed over as a typical cereal, but upon closer inspection, there is a lot more to it.

Yes, Goo Ta.  Once open and in a bowl, one discovers even more excitement.  Just as the picture on the package would suggest, it is a cereal of beans: red, green, soy.  And even better and more amazing is that the little white squares are not the scratchy marshmallows of Lucky Charms, but dry tofu bits that rehydrate in milk.  Brilliant.  A cereal with tofu.  Japan, I have arrived.
