    You just gotta love it. I'm enjoying a bowl of Fruit Loops now, even though I think they've lost some of their luster over the years just like Apple Jacks.

    Heh...I literally just came upstairs from eating a bowl of Frosted Cheerios before heading to bed (after a short trip to the internet). I grew up eating Cheerios and still love them. Though I do love Fruit Loops too. But we always had to eat cereals like that at my grandparent's house [​IMG]

    One bad thing about living in the United states is that you don't get to buy "Crispy wheats and raisins." Simply put, no-one does the whole raisin and flake thing better. The raisins are plump and the flakes have just the right amount of sugar on them - plus they don't go soggy as fast.
    I could go for a bowl right now......any Canadians willing to send me some? [​IMG]

    I am a "cereal killa." I always have the classics on hand. Those would include:
    Cocoa Puffs ( A stoner classic, although I do not partake). It's chocolate, it makes chocolate milk. Oh the zen of Cocoa Puffs. Simply the best cereal ever made. Corn puffs, sweetened with Hershey's cocoa.
    Apple Jacks "fun to eat"
    Lucky Charms "They're magically delicious" General Mills oat classic.
    Cocoa Pebbles get the box with the Bedrock Riddles, for extra fun.
    Trix (they have switched this one up a bit, new shape, I like the old one better) but it's General Mill's, and they own cereal, fruity sweetened corn puffs!
    Fruit Loops (their is nothing lackluster about this fruity Kellogg's gem, they're fruity and they're loops ) Not a good value with the 11oz. box, go with the larger size.
    Life (not as classic, an oat cereal, with which its' checkerboard pattern retains milk real well)
    Cinnamon Toast Crunch (now this one, hasn't been around as long as the others, but kicks major a**, wheat and rice based, my only complaint is the 14 oz. box, they need a jumbo size, this General Mills outing is destined to be a classic)
    let's just say this thread was long overdue [​IMG]

    I think putting milk on cereal is OUTRIGHT, GROSS! Why would anybody wanna eat soggy cereal? I eat my cereal dry and with my had. Just reach in the bowl and grab a handfull an stuff it in my face.

    What's worse is when the person next to you is eating cereal with milk in it and he slurps it. God, it just makes me wanna puke.

    I still think it's funny that all of those cereals with "Sugar" in the name from when I was a kid have been renamed so they don't sound quite so bad for you, even if they are.

    Sugar Pops = Corn Pops

    Super Sugar Crisp = Super Golden Crisp

    Sugar Smacks = Smacks

    Sugar Frosted Flakes = Frosted Flakes

    and so on.

    I don't want to seem like and old fart ( I am only 21 after all) but Blueberry Morning is wicked good. Although I must say it is probably the most expensive cereal I have ever consumed. Something like $46 for one of those sample boxes you get in the mail. Well maybe I am exagerating on the price but it is way more than the "sugar" cereals.
    Oh, and Golden Grahams kicks butt too.

    I have what I call, "cereal-phases."

    Just as when we were young we didn't like certain things, and then we all "grew" into "them." (Well majority of people I know have same scenarios).

    I'll crave a cereal. Have my woman buy it (J/K, calm down). Eat it. After about a month (3 times of normal shopping rotation roughly) of consuming my once craved cereal, I dislike it for some time. Then I fall back on my old cereal that had it's rotation finish just a month earlier. So my alternative for every other month is the one I did not want the month before. "It's a fecious cycle.."

    But after about a year, I just get 2 whole new cereals to start another "cereal phase."

    I'm currently on Corn Pops this month, and then Cinnamon Toast Crunch next month, and so on. I have taught you well my son(s).

    -Bert

    They killed off two of my favorites, Berry Berry Kix and Rice Krispies Treats Cereal.[​IMG] I'm a very moody cereal eater, in that I go on a kick with a cereal for days or weeks, then get really disgusted with it and not eat it for a year. Oh yeah, and I'd rather eat my cereal with Raid on it than milk.[​IMG] [​IMG]
