Don't worry, you're not. I too was surprised at the number of people here who think marshmallow cereal is disgusting. Best part of childhood right there. I used to eat all the marshmallows before I ate the cereal. Then my mom would yell at me because I took so long to finish eating.

In fact, I think I might sneak "Lucky Charms" onto the bottom of the food shopping list for tomorrow. So what if I'm in high school? I hope it comes with a toy...

Are you saying cold oats? Or quick oats, boiled? For a while I was making oatmeal with rolled oats a lot in the mornings. In fact, I forgot that since I live near a Whole Foods again, I can buy rolled oats in bulk and start doing this again. But the cereal paradigm in my experience has shifted almost completely away from hot cereal to cold.

cold.

i just use the quick oats because they absorb the liquid quicker than the slower rolled oats.

I don't think marshmallow in cereal is disgusting, apart from the fact that I don't like marshmallow at all. I do think it's disturbing to need something that's that sickly sweet in cereal, though.

I think that the blueberry/strawberry frosted mini wheats are the best!
banana nut crunch...or whatever that is...is great too.

is anybody else partial to dry cereal? Milk doesn't do it for me...haha

pretty much anything other than oats, i don't put milk on. (well, i don't put milk on oats either. i use rice milk there. regular milk is pretty nasty stuff.)

i ate half a box of honey nut cheerios today. dry, and out of the box.
gave me a bit of a headache when the sugar wore off.
delicious, though.

It's not real marshmallow.

No one is saying they need it, but like it. It's our favorite type of cereal. How is that disturbing? They taste delicious.

Personally I eat all the non-marshmallow pieces and save the marshmallows for last.

Cookie Crisp, while delicious when I was eight, is actually quite disgusting.

I can see how the massive amounts of sugar can be too much for some people, but as long as the non-marshmallow bits aren't sweetened, it's a very nice balance.

And, thanks to this thread, I've been eating Lucky Charms nonstop since Sunday. :D

something i do:Some days I eat cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
in my opinion: I'm pissed off that Trix is no longer made in fun fruity shapes, just stupid round balls. and I say screw you for reducing the sugar content.
a question: What about hot cereal like oatmeal?
something humorous: Some moron sued Kellog's because they honestly thought froot loops has fruit in it.
a suggestion: Try using strawberry milk, I especially like banana milk.
a tip: Dry cereal makes a good movie theater snack, something different than popcorn.
a discovery: Cereal makes a good ice-cream topping.
maybe if this is witty enough, someone will finally love me

A long, long time ago, in a pantry far, far, away, Trix were originally round. And there were only three flavors: orangey-orange, lemony-yellow, and raspberry-red. And you enjoyed it. It wasn't until later that grapity-purple and lime-green became fixtures, and they were still round. It wasn't until some time in the mid-to-late-90s or early 00s that they became the fruity shapes.

But I agree about reducing the sugar content. I think all of the sugary cereals are doing it in order to win back the trust of both the kids and the parents.

I once had a recipe that involved using Lucky Charms, mixed with peanuts, M&Ms candies, yogurt-covered raisins, and Reese's Pieces candies, in time for St. Patrick's Day, called "Lucky Snack" or "Good Luck Snack". Mix above together, serve. Was an awesome snack to nibble on whenever I was hungry at work or at home.

I never cared for it, either. I remember when I was a kid, after having seen a Cookie Crisp commercial with the cop and the crook, making my own. I took a handful of chocolate chip cookies, crumbled them up in a bowl, poured milk over them, and nom.

Oh man, I remember when they added purple and green, there was a Saturday morning cartoon contest about what flavors made it in; you had to watch the commercials and mail in the UPCs, IIRC.

Never like Trix though, the ads annoyed me. I was a Cocoa Puffs kid. Ooh, and Reese's Puffs. Cocoa Krispies. There's an operative theme here.

Anything chocolate, particularly cocoa rice krispies. I don't eat cereal very often though.

I pretty much will only eat Rice Crispies (as far as cereal goes, I eat many other foodstuffs).
And even that is only a relatively recent development. I used to have issues with dairy products, so I wouldn't eat cereal at all.
I don't actually often eat breakfast though (I know, I know, most important meal of the day).
I mostly lurk. Hello.

I think I've eaten just about all of those for dinner at some point in my life.

Golden Grahams, Coco Puffs, Fruity Pebbles and Cheerios (honey nut or regular) are all some of my favorites. Grapte nuts too.
