Unfortunatly cereals is one item that I have had to strike off my diet because of my diet, they are just too fattening with the milk and sugar .

When I did eat cereals my favorite cereal was definitly Shreddies, unfortunatly, despite being manufactured by Nestlé they are not sold in Switzerland. I used to comes back from the UK with about 4-6 boxes in my luggage.
When I used to drive over to the UK, I used to come back with about 2 large boxes of 12 packets.

Fiber gives me bowl movements. I like frosted mini-wheats. they have a lot of fiber, and nothing feels better like having to crap, but you hold it in until you get sick, and then you let it all go. It feels better than... other things, you know.

Hey Mikey! He likes it!

I like a variety in my cereal. When I was a kid it had to be loaded with sugar, but I can't stand things like Frosted Flakes, Cap'n Crunch, Froot Loops or even Honey Nut Cheerios anymore.

Quaker Corn Bran is good. A healthy amount of fibre, but not so much that it rips a hole right through you like a big bowl of raisin bran will. I also like Multigrain Cheerios, Just Right and Oatmeal Crisp with Raisins.

i actually rarely eat cereal in the morning; i'd rather gnaw a bagel or something. i snack on cereal all the time though: multi-grain cheerios, special k, and smart start are all favorites. not too sweet, but they don't taste like gravel, either.

...mum, of course, stopped buying special k when i started poncing around the house with the box of it in my hand, singing placebo's "special k" at the top of my lungs.

I don't think I've eaten cereal for at least a dozen years, just kinda lost interest or something.I usually eat bagels or granola bars (which I guess are cereal in bar form anyway). Nowadays I live with a vegan, and even if I got a craving, soy milk is just no substitute.

I've always loved cereal as a quickie snack, not just for breakfast. When I was real young, we were allowed to have Corn Flakes as a before bed snack on weekends. The one I really hated as a kid was that atrocious "puffed wheat" -- it was like eating styrofoam! Jeez, if my parents thought they were getting us healthy stuff; they never realized how much sugar it took to make that stuff even midly palatable!

To this day, now that I have my own house; I keep a good stock of cereals, since I like a lot of variety. My totally "spoil myself treat" is HoneyComb, followed my MiniWheats. I also have Cheerios, Lucky Charms and Wheetabix. I go nuts if I don't have milk in the house -- cuz then I can't have any cereal!! Arrrgggh!

I'm going to have to go with Cinnamon Life.

Of course, CTC (cinnamon toast crunch) is always great. However, I can't make myself buy that, it's too sweet to actually eat for breakfast. When I had a meal plan at school and I could randomly get CTC once or twice a month it was perfect. Those were the days.

Since I'm taking that tangent, Colorado School of Mines has an excellent cafeteria.

Um, I think it might be drugs actually.

At home I eat shredded wheat, rice krispies and raisan bran all layered up in one bowl. Mixing cereals is yummy, but I can't afford to do that here in school so I usually just go for raisan bran. Of course, if I see golden grahams in a dining hall I do not resist.

Quisp and Quake were both Cap'n Crunch cereal reformed into a different shape. I loved the commercials, but went back to the Cap'n.

All three were products of Quaker Oats.

I often wish that mfrs would put a web-museum of their past products for research purposes.

I used to eat a lot of cold cereal, especially in high school and college. Honey Nut Cheerios is my favorite, but I haven't eaten it in quite some time. January, 1999 I went on a diet and ever since I have eaten oatmeal for breakfast nearly every day.

With the exception of Honey Nut Cheerios, which I haven't had in a while, I pretty much prefer something plain in the morning, like Crispix or Rice Krispies (which I also haven't had in while). Reading between the lines in the above sentence, I mainly eat Crispix these days in the morning - it just tastes good, and doesn't wake me up too much - that role is left for my nice cup of coffee which is made whilst eating the Crispix, and had on the commute and in the office/class (whichever comes first).

Gosh, I don't realize how long time, I have never eat cereal since I was young. My favorite was any goodies cartoon on the cereal box.

Today, things are, sure, change alot. For rare time, I eat for breakfast are dount and egg/bacon - Mmmm!

you're so right about anorexic-brian, excepting, perhaps, the bit where you referred to him as a guy. i'm guessing that that would offend him.

When I was a kid, I was into that stupid marshmallowy/chocolately stuff--Count Chocola, Cookie Crisp, Lucky Charms. I used to actually pick the marshmallows out of my Lucky Charms and eat those. My favorite was Cinnamon Toast Crunch, though.

Eventually I went to Pop Tarts, then to Frosted Mini-Wheats. Now I'm on Honey Nut Cheerios.

I'm getting so old and conservative.

My Favorites are as folllows,
Rasin Bran, Frosted Flakes, and Cocoa Pebbles,
they are all pretty much right there on the same level too, I mean each provides something I like,
Rasin Bran, has rasins and that semblance of being heawlthy, that and I can mispronounce it as "Rasin Brains" when I feel like talkng like a Zombie,
Frpsted Flakes , aah whats not to love about flakes of corn toasted and coated with a metric ton of sugar glaze?
and lastly Cocoa Pebbles, it gives me that morinig chocolate fix that lasts me all day, and you just cannot beat it with a stick, , , well you probably could beat it with a stick, but it wouldnt accomplish much, but make a mess, and well since Crazy Cow is no longer on the market, its probably the best cereal out there that turns your milk icky brown.

Of late, actually, I've become a big fan of the Quaker bagged serial that is a knock-off of Cocoa Pebbles, which itself is little more than Post's answer to Kelogg's Cocoa Crispies. Whatever -- the Quaker version has the best balance of sweetness and...um, not-sweetness, and costs less than either of the aforementioned delicacies. Win win situation.

However, I have to stop eating them until my triglycerides (whatever those may be) go down to respectable levels...

I'm a big Corn Flakes fan. Yeah, I know, boring....

Cheerios are good, but only if they're eaten straight from the box. They get too soggy in milk. Rice Krispies are the same way.

When I was younger, I liked Alpha-Bits, Apple Jacks, and Honeycomb.

Me either, but I do love the Quaker frosted mini-wheats as snack food.

Beverages on cereal are just great, but people give me funny looks when I pour bourbon on my cornflakes so I don't do it any more.
