    My favorites are Raisin Bran, Shreaded Wheat, Grape Nuts, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, and Captain Crunch. Remember when Captain Crunch came out and they sent a small box in the mail to sample? Also love Chocolate Malto Meal. Got to cook it and add milk. Good hearty breakfast if eggs and bacon are not on the menu. For all of you who are getting older. Remember that our bones ai:)n’t what they used to be, so drink milk or eat cheese. You all have fun with this post. I’m sure I forgot a cereal that I like.

    "great grains" with pecans. I also add a handfull of cashews and dried cranberries...and super cold milk!

    When I am feeling naughty, Fruity Pebbles, and again, ice cold milk. One box of fruit pebbles for me equates to a single serving :D

    I like all the great grains stuff.

    Used to love peanut butter Cap’n Crunch

    Raisin Bran, which is great grains on a budget lol

    I love coco wheats with 1/2 & 1/2 for a hot cereal.

    Oh, forgot the fall back. Just combine a bunch of different stuff in a big bowl with Saturday morning cartoons.

    I'm okay with it if we only have coco pebbles.
    but I'm also okay if we have LIFE, frosted flakes, corn puffs, special-K and several others.

    I don't need to do the bran type colon blow specials.

    I'm good with anything a 6 y.o. would like [or want you to buy anyway] and will eat a bowl of cereal just about any time of day or night if it's something I like.

    Cheerios, sometimes with bananas or strawberries. Once in a while, I'll eat some of the wife's mini shredded wheat, if'n I can get away with it.:oops:

    I prefer nonsugared ceral. Especially basic Cornflakes, Cheerio Os and Bran Flakes. My "naughty" entry is Cocoa Puffs. I like the "chocolate milk" drink at the end.

    I dont care for milk so would be dry cereal. Only use milk in cooking. I just stick to dry granola and like the Nature Valley cereal and grain bars. I like the ones with peanut and cashew

    Cinnamon toast crunch! Cocoa Pebbles, Lucky Charms, Museli, broken up graham crackers, with dry marshmallow bits. Cooked rice, with butter, sugar, vanila extract, and cinnamon.

    I like Cheerio's, but I burp them for hours after eating.

    One of my favorites from when I was a kid that I wish was still around was the original Smores crunch , that stuff was the bomb. My girlfriend's latest greatest favorite is the honey oatmeal crunch Cheerios & her fruity pebbles. I also like the "Hospitality" Raisin Bran from Winco and the Strawberry Mini Spooners and Peanut Butter crunch. Other Staples in the house include Honey Nut Cheerios, Corn Flakes, fruity or cocoa Dyno bites with marshmallows, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Fruit Loops & Cookie Crisp :) . Once in a while we may grab some Apple Jacks or something else but you get the gist

    New York
    Our local independent supermarket had Smores by, I think, Post the last time I went shopping. Junior bought a box of that, and a box of Pop Tarts Cereal.

    This is why I hate taking him shopping with me.

    Being a diabetic I have a major problem with cereal and milk.Cereal can not be a sugery kind so I mostly do Cherrios and a bit of milk. Milk drives up my sugar and is a quick way to raise low sugar.

    As a kid how ever we had cream of wheats, maltomeal, coco wheats, rolston, rice with cinniom shredded wheat soaked in boiling water then drained add milk for hot cereal.

    Dad loved post toastys Hated them because they got soggy and were yukky but then dad enjoyed torn up white bread and milk too.
    Depresstion kid I guess.

    I liked coco puffs and the reeases pieces were better than potato chips right out of the box dry.

    Main breakfast these days is Eggs any way and sauage/bacon and a slice of toast. Biskets and gravey is also great when i have a day of hard work planed where I can burn the carbs off in a couple hours.

  19. Cinnamon Life cereal, Corn Chex, Cheerios and Raison Bran.

    I don't like overly sweet cereal.

    Nothing with added sugar since the Nixon administration.
