Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll 1/18

I expect today’s poll to be controversial and fraught with indecision for our dear readers. This highly-charged debate has been raging for years and has been known to break up friendships and marriages alike. I ask you: what…is your favorite cereal?

Now, you could go in a few different directions here. I, for example have a different answer for favorite actual breakfast cereal, favorite childhood cereal, and favorite midnight snack cereal. (Honey Bunches of Oats, Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs, and Special K Chocolatey Delights, respectively) So, have at it. And keep it clean, folks.

I’m curious as how you thought people would get dirty in a cereal thread, but this is the internet and there is much I don’t know.

I’m a huge fan of Cracklin’ Oat Bran, which looks like kibble and tastes like heaven. I like Cocoa Krispies when I want something sugary. As I get older a lot of kiddie cereals give me something I call Captain Crunch Mouth, wherein the cereal shreds my gums.

Also a huge fan of plain Cheerios with sliced banana.

I’m with Luci–Lucky Charms or nothing. I used to love Captain Crunch (the kind with red berries) and went through a brief semi-healthy phase with Frosted Mini-Wheats and expensive organic granola. Now I pretty much only eat cereal when I’m visiting my in-laws, and they have lots of the sugary good stuff.

I feel like a cereal nerd, but my two favorites have always been Special K and Post Shredded Wheat – but it has to be Post, not the other one. The fun thing about Shredded Wheat is that everyone has their own ‘sweet-spot’ for eating them. I have debated at length the merits of eating them right away, while they’re still crunchy, or waiting – as I prefer – till they have soaked up enough milk to be soft, but still maintain their shape. The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that once they start to fall apart, it’s too late.
