As the story goes – after the battle with the Titans, Zeus shared the world with his elder brothers, Poseidon and Hades by drawing lots: Zeus got the sky and air, Poseidon the waters, and Hades the underworld, where there are only chain restaurants and no Phatburn Studios.
Their sister Gaia, however, got all of the oatmeal and all of the raisins and all of the yogurt. Being the creative she was, she concocted what is known as today as “oatmeal raisin energy” – thus, having the world by it’s #####.
None of the boys had a chance.
Enjoy this treat from the gods!
