I'm such a cereal purist. My favorites are plain Cheerios, plain mini Shredded Wheat, Special K.
(I do right now have some lovely natural low sugar granola, that works quite nicely with yogurt and strawberries!)

I don't eat a lot of cereal these days. it's just too. . . disappointing for me. I do occasionally make homemade granola (whole oats + lots of nuts + a hint of brown sugar, all bathed in an oil+syrup mixture and baked in the oven).
What I want: For "organic"/"healthy" cereals to stop pretending that organic evaporated cane juice is, chemically, anything more than SUGAR. (Yeah, it's organic, which is, indeed, a good thing, but it's still SUGAR!!) Can we have something low sugar that isn't artificially sweetened? Please????

What I want: Banana nut cheerios
What I have: Banana nut cheerios.
Good for you!
I hardly ever eat cereal but when I do, it's Crispix or Oatmeal Squares and I consider both a great treat.

What I have: Granola from the Whole Foods bins
What I want: A certain Sam's Club brand granola that they discontinued several years ago. I still think about it after all these years...but now I can't remember the name. :(
What I have: Raisin Bran, oatmeal, Cream of Wheat
What I want: Fruity Pebbles :(
I LOVE Fruity Pebbles but can't find them here :(

I'm pretty satisfied with my Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, but I'd love some granola with yogurt and strawberries (thank you Kasey for reminding me to add that to my grocery list lol).

What I have: boring organic granola
What I want: Cinnamon Toast Crunch

What I have: no cereal
What I want: Smurfberry Crunch. It's the only cereal I've ever really liked... Last fall, they had various flavors of Kellogg's Pops cereal out. The strawberry tasted like the pink pieces of Smurfberry. If they'd only had blueberry, we'd have been in business.
I'm not so muchly so a cereal person at all. Other than Smurfberry, which came out before I was even in Kindergarten, there has never been another cereal I've ever cared to eat for breakfast.
Yeah, I know, it's weird...

what a funny thread :lol:
what I have: no cereal
what I have when I buy cereal (only a couple times a year): either the Trader Joe's version of cheerios or one of those flake type cereals with nuts from the health food store
what I wish I had: I used to love sugary cereals but I don't any more. I like the cereals I buy. I always liked Rice Chex though...I don't buy cereals that are $4+ a box, though, so maybe that's what I wish I had.

I'm not a cereal person either and don't eat breakfast usually. Though I have fond memories of Weetabix with warm milk on a cold winter day.
But I do love Harvest Crunch for a snack, though I don't buy it often.

Ah yes, Weetabix with hot milk and dark brown sugar on top, yummy :)
I also love Nestle Raisin Oats & More and Quaker Oats 'Oat so Simple' sultanas, raisins, cranberry & apple variety :)
What I don't have but like are Kelloggs Frosties. And porridge with dark brown sugar on top and a dollop of golden syrup :shuffle:
