The Cereal Thread

I like cereal. Maybe not as much as Seinfeld, but it's tasty. I'm a sugar fiend, so "healthy" cereals aren't my thing. My favs (in order of healthiness):

-Kellogg's Raisin Bran
-Honey Bunches o' Oats with Strawberries.
-Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
-Cap'n Crunch.
-Fruity Pebbles.

One more thing... a few weeks ago in the BA F Lounge at LHR, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER... I ate cereal with fruit it in. And it was decent (came about because all they had were corn flakes, and the fruit was right there... why not dump in a scoop?).

I know... I'm weird. At least I don't put mayo it my cereal

EDIT: Oh yeah... how much milk do you put in? I flood mine. And it has to be ice cold. But once the cereal has reached the soggy state, I stop... I HATE soggy cereal.

I like the Safeway knockoffs. Cheaper but just as good, IMHO.

I really enjoy cereal.

Honey-Nut Cheerios
Corn Flakes with Blueberries or Bananas
Rice Krispies with fruit as well
Honey Bunches o' Oats
Alpha-Bets (a favorite from my childhood)
Oatmeal with Brown Sugar (especially on the road in the winter)

I don't like Riasin Bran because I don't like raisins.

For me, cereal's great for an evening snack, but an insult at breakfast.

I like Quaker Puffed Rice, but it's almost impossible to find in stores anymore. It's still around, but in limited production, you can get it direct from Quaker's online store. The cereal section in the grocery store has 200 different kinds of cereal, but they don't have room for one stupid box of puffed rice anymore. Invented it 1904, hard to believe it lasted all that time and then disappeared.

Honey Bunches of Oats (HBO) - banana, is my favorite. Also as a late night snack and the cereal bars are good, too.

I am a cereal addict. But living in Switzerland I can't get my favorite American cereals.

That list includes:

Lucky Charms
Multigrain Cheerios
Honey Nut Cheerios
Life
Fruit Loops
Cinimon Toast Chrunch (Cini Minis do not compare)
Rice Chex

My favorite combination of cereals is Life on bottom and Honey Nut Cheerios on top. MMMM. The Sweetness of the Honey Nut balences very nicely with the Life and the textures mix very nicely together.

As for Swiss cereals go:

Crisp Rice (The kind you get at Migros but not Migros brand)


So anyone willing to help my cause of not having American cereal and ship it to me?

I do QuickOats for breakfast and lunch. 3/4 cup of Oats, add hot water, mix in one scoop of Whey Protein, and I'm good to go use milk instead of water, and it tastes like good 'ol Chocolate milk. Trying to stay healthy and fit
