Why aren't there "cereal bars" in supermarkets?

You know ... rows and rows of bins filled with cereal where you can mix and match any combo that you want and then pay by the pound? The way you might do with with things like bulk rice, beans, grains, etc.?

How nice would it be to indulge once in a while in a nice mix of Honey Bunches of Oats, with some Cocoa Puffs, topped with some Cap'n Crunch, and then sprinkled with a bit of Cinnamon Life? All shaken, not stirred, of course.

If I wanted that combo I'd have to buy, like, four boxes of cereal.

And, yes, I know there are cereal restaurants where they can mix and match for you, but why not at a supermarket -- where they could have bins and bins of cereals and you could mix and match to create your own "cereation" (cereal+creation) while picking up some kale, a bottle of Stag Leap's Chardonnay (2008), and some Fuji Apples?

Is there such a setup in a grocery store where you live?

I have yet to find one where I am ... sadly, enough.
