Yes, those are Apple Jacks. I had some for breakfast today. They are delicious.

That's not what the rest of the world (the US) calls rice crispy treats.

Quisps, eh? Hm...

I have Coco Pops for breakfast :)

Mmmm.

'Just like a chocolate milkshake only crunchy', as the ad goes.

Maybe this is telling of me, but I like the cereals that fuck up your mouth. I mean, I don't like them because of the aforementioned, but that's always a potential side-effect. I like granola that loosens your fillings, I like Cap'n Crunch, I like those weird, fried, sugary, brown bran rings, and if I recall correctly, the Reese's Puffs. If there was a way to combine blood-seeking Tootsie Roll Pops and milk besides the disgusting obvious, I would be on that like the clap.

They totally ruined it when they made it whole grain. Now it tastes like cardboard with cinnamon sugar on it. Not all bad, granted, but hardly my favorite.

I voted for 'healthy' as I often have Special K with sliced fruit for 'dinner' (late-night meal when I get home from work).

Froot Loops are good for a special treat, though.

If Cinnamon Toast Crunch had been put into a 'Cinnamon' category with Cinnamon Life, I would have voted for it, but I just couldn't resist all that honey goodness.

Although, I do love me a good bowl of Rice Chex...and heck, even those old Shredded Wheat bricks can be awesome every once in awhile...

It's odd to see Cheerios advertised with the Nestlé brand.

I don't think i've ever eaten cheerios.

Alas, for what I previously said, the new 'weet-bux fruity' which replaced the old fruity-bix that i loved, I have since remembered is actually quite bad. That was why I had not had them for so long.

As that particular box in Teapot's hands looks to be of the Multi-Grain variety...

They look like this
The regular kind looks like that.

Does anyone have a favorite way to eat their cereal? If it's something small, like Cheerios, I put it in a mug with lots of milk, and just drink it up, no need for a spoon. Cereal is awesome because, to rip off Jerry Seinfeld, you can eat and drink at the same time without looking down. With the mug and no spoon method, you get all those benefits, plus a free hand. Just be careful to have lots of milk left at the end so you don't have any stragglers.

I do that if I'm in a hurry. Throw it all in a glass, get in the car and go.

Otherwise, I prefer the blind shovel method - that is, pretty much hover my head over the bowl, set my eatin' arm on autopilot and read a book.

I will generally do this but with the newspaper.

I will sometimes do the cup thing if I am having it as a snack or something later in the day. I usually have more cereal for breakfast than can be fit into a mug.

I eat my cereal out of a bowl and watch every mouthful in case a bug or some random bit of crud ends up in my cereal.

Woah I don't think we have those over here. We just have multigrain and the honey variety. I wish they would produce a box of just the darkest ones and the lightest ones. Yum.

I generally like to eat lots of cereal with upto a pint of milk per bowl, preferably in either a tupperware container or a Pyrex glass jug. I usually eat Frosties, because they are cheap.

My record for Shredded Wheat is 12 ina single sitting. It was quite a long sitting. Went through a tonne of sugar too.

Also Chex are sold in the UK as Crispix. They are depressingly difficult to get hold of.

Are you sure about that? Here in the US, Chex and Crispix are two different cereals, manufactured by two different companies. Chex are square and come in different varieties by grain, whereas Crispix are hexagonal and are a combination of corn and rice.

If I am to eat cereal, it would have to be Trader Joe's Banana Nut Clusters. Sweet, but not too sweet, but just the right amount to taste good. Plus the flakes don't get soggy as quickly as most cereals.


Yumyum.

I like cheerios.
Back in my early childhood I had corn flakes with large amounts of suger and milk, then I found out about suger frosted cornflakes, lived in a few years of sugar induced bliss and then switched to cheerios for a reason I cant quite remember. Been with them ever since.

As much as I try, unless they're in a mug or something I can NOT pull off a blind shovel process for eating cereal. I always end up dropping milk over my face/shirt unless I look down to keep the spoon level. Its quite frustrating.

... again, the blind shovel method involves you leaning over the bowl so as to not accidentally soil your clothing.

Ideally, your head should be no more than six inches above the bowl. Or table.

The feedbag, not the disembodied horses head.

So many American cereal choices! Half of which mean nothing to me! I do like eating cereal though, at random parts of the day. I usually like honey laden things like Sugar Puffs, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes or some sort of honey oat nut cluster gubbins which catches my eye when i'm shopping.

Morning routine is fruit muesli on top of two broken up weet-bix. If my sweet tooth bites I hide a layer of dark brown sugar between the muesli and the weet-bix.

Used to like fruity-bix as well, glad I was never aware they'd been replaced.

It was a family tradition to get Cocoa Pops or Fruit Loops for the summer holidays or when something special happened, though. Still I have trouble understanding some American cereal options, marshmellows? Why?

Anything with ridiculous amounts of sugar, frosties, fruit loops etc. I don't eat them much though, for obvious reasons. Nut feast is nice, it doesn't have enough sugar to bake a batch of muffins with too.
Wheat-bix with artificial sweetener on top.

You missed the Granola/Meusli catagory. I clicked healthy, but not all granolas are really that healthy.

Also, granola is excellent with peanut butter.

I tend to like honey cereals because of how they flavor the milk. Mmmm. And they're good warmed up, too.


HOORAY FOR HONEY! It's so good, it tastes twice! When I drink the honey-milk at the end, I call it ambrosia in my head....because I am a freak.
How do you warm up your honey cereal? I've never considered doing that but it sounds delightful.


p.s. Honey Bunches of Oats should be in the honey category, not crammed in with those bastards Cookie Crisp and Cap'n Crunch (aka Cereals That Will Cut You). I'm just sayin'.

As is, Corn Chex or whatever the knockoff brand happens to be called is the best ever, and I'll knife-fight you if you disagree. Not to the death mind you, that'd be stupid. To the maiming.


That is bizarre. My girlfriend's favourite is also Corn Chex. I had never heard of them or seen them until she introduced me to them. I didn't actually think they were that great, though.

I like most of the healthy cereals, surprisingly. I like oats and nuts and fruit bits and everything else they have in abundance.
