This morning brought the unparalleled delight of Sainsbury's own-brand Frosted Flakes, with a generous helping of semi-skimmed milk. How luxurious.  Yeah sure

Shame, it's really one of the best cereals! I've heard of the Lucky Charms, but to be honest they sound a bit sweet for me. I will, however, trade you for a box of the Cinimon Toast Crunch  Smile

I love a big pile of Kellog's Corn Flakes (taste better than other corn flakes I think) which are drenched in the coldest full milk possible without actually freezing it.

Then dusted with some sugar.


A close second is either Golden Grahams or Cinnamon Grahams.

Sod cereal. A full English farmhouse breakfast, made from only the best ingredients, none of which should come from a supermarket (and all preferably organic):

Local sausages, eggs straight from the farm (fried), fried mushrooms, locally-produced bacon, baked beans, doorstep-sized fresh slices of toast, top-quality black pudding, and if any are available - fried potatoes. Also, not forgetting a pot of tea on the side.

All in all, an extremely tasty way to kill yourself.

Cinnamon Toast Cruch is awesome, I just polished off a box after not having it in years, I need to go get some more at Costco. Honey Nut Cheerios and Blueberry Morning are awesome as well.

This has come up recently, and everyone makes fun of me for it, but.....

Does anyone else eat their cereal dry without milk?

I have never been able to do it with milk, I don't like the soggy cereal I guess, am I the only one?

I know quite a few people that do that. Although some because of lactose issues.

Personally I would find it way too dry. Imagine eating Weetabix with no added moisture! I know some people that do that! Bleh.

Well, you are quite right to not like the sound of it - I don't either, but unfortunately it can taste awesome, so you just have to try and forget what's in it. Basically, it's a pudding made of blood, cereals etc.

Read the ingredients on the side of the box- most Corn Flakes are LOADED with sugar, even though they don't have a particularly sweet taste.

My absolute favorite cereal is Lucky Charms, but General Mills changed the recipe a bit on the real ones a while back so I slightly prefer the generic/store-brand version now. A close second favorite of mine is Honey Nut Cheerios.

This might be a bit hard-core, but I wonder if I'm the only one who does this: Get a mouthful of dry cereal, then take a swig of black coffee and swish it around in my mouth to hydrate the cereal? That method of eating cereal is especially good with Honey Nut Cheerios and Sugar Smacks/Honey Smacks/Smacks (sweetened puffed wheat).

Hmmm... I like Southern-style fried green tomatoes for lunch or dinner, but they're battered and dealing with slicing, battering, and frying fruit first thing in the morning is about one step too many to ask of someone. I'm curious as to what one looks for in a suitably "fry-able" morning tomato in the UK... any of our UK friends care to enlighten me?

Money was tight at our house. My favorite was Rice Krispies. Mom would usually buy the imitation brand of Corn Flakes & Rice Krispies. Dads favorite was Cheerios. What ever we had (Cheerios, Corn Flakes, R. Crispies, Wheates, whatever) I usually loaded the bowl about half full of sugar. Now I dont eat cereal.

Kellogg's Corn Flakes has 2g sugar and 24g carbohydrates. It has 21g 'other carbohydrates'. I have no clue what that is. I don't think that's a lot of sugar. Regular Frosted Flakes have 11g sugar.

I try and buy different cereals all the time. Just finished of a box of Cherrios with oat clusters (must be new, I've never seen it before), it was pretty good. There's so many cereals I like, but Lucky Charms will always stay my favourite.

EDIT: Sorry, I lied, my aboslute favourite were E.T.'s back in the 80s. The E's were chocolate flavour and the T's were peanut butter flavour. Haven't seen them since the 80s though. And no, Reeses Pieces cereal just doesn't taste the same.

You are one of the select few who believes in the power of Start. And, fear not, they still stock it in my local supermarket! I can't believe they still produce it, because sure as hell nobody seems to buy it! A bit of a niche product - when every other cereal is trying to be low-calorie, Start is all about maximum energy possible!

Awesome. I can't believe nobody buys it. You probably just don't get up early enough to see the long queues of athletes buying their Start first thing, clutching their javelins, discus and running spikes.
