Mine was and is Golden Grahams first with honey combs second and cracklings oat bran third
corn flakes, actual whole milk, a little sugar pure plain and simple. don't complicate with bananas! DAY OH no!! not needed.
Peanut butter and Choc Cheerios/Mixed whole grain Cheerios are both in the house now. I like to mix that with original Life.
Honey Bunches Of Oats and plain old Kelloggs Corn Flakes with sugar, eaten fast before they get soggy.
I don't eat much cereal these days, but as a kid I favored quite a few:
Nabisco Shredded Wheat
Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries
Count Chocula, soaked in milk for a minute to develop some softness of texture.
Wheaties, with strawberries. No added sugar needed.
When I was a kid Cocoa Puffs then Captain Crunch. Today, Cream of Wheat.
I remember kings Vitamin. I wondered what happened to it.
I remember well the cocoa pebbles commercials with Fred Chasing Barney also
When I was a kid-Jets
Now-Grape Nuts (with warm milk)
Rice Chex and Cheerios
These days I eat oatmeal and occasionally Malt-O-Meal at breakfast (and the only cereals I eat to which I add a bit of sugar):
I've tried Chocolate and Maple Malt-O-Meal but didn't care for them. Just the original.
There are quite a few cold cereals I enjoy and will eat for Saturday morning "breakfast."
Eaten only with milk:
And a few I keep around for snacking - usually *without* milk (although sometimes with milk as breakfast):
The first time I had Grape Nuts (not flakes) I made my normal bowl full. That was a mistake! I was so tired of chewing by the time I finished that bowl that I didn't purchase them again for years. I now get them occasionally (once every year or so) but put a very small amount in the bowl. A few years back I decided to try them hot - after all I really like other hot cereals - thinking it would soften them and make them easier to eat. Nope. They stay just as hard cooked as cold and tasted the same so why bother.
As a kid:
As a 60-year-old:
My favorite of all time is Honey Nut Cheerios.
Favorite all-time for me, are the Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles. But the Peanut Butter Cocoa one is horrible, and this coming from someone who loves chocolate and peanut butter together.
I do like a lot of different cereals, and get whatever ones that are on sale in my local supermarket.
