I like things just right

Today, my wife got mad at me for buying Raisin Bran without almonds. I offered to add confectionery sliced almonds, which we already had at home. Her response, “That’s not the same thing.” It is exactly the same thing. FML

Same thing different taste

It's not. The almonds in the box have been soaking up the branniness for weeks or months. You ******' carpet-bagging almonds are unwelcome interlopers. Now, put on your big boy pants and get the right cereal this time!

Also texture, probably. If raisin bran slices them one way and the confectionary almonds are sliced another that’s a whole different beast

You might want to rethink your future with this woman.

It's not about "We can add almonds", it's that you didn't care enough to get the one she liked in the first place. Probably sitting right next to each other, and it doesn't taste the same. Welcome to married life

It's similar, but not "exactly the same thing" and it's important that you respect your wife's food preferences. This isn't her trying to change you or anything, this is her making a decision about her food choices and you fumbling the bag. She's allowed to be annoyed with that.
