Favorite Cereals

As a kid, my mom wouldn’t let us have any cereal with preservatives, so we were limited to Cheerios (and Honey Nut Cheerios for those special occasions). Naturally, when I was awarded the freedoms of college life, I rebelled and packed so many preservatives in my body that when I die, my body will look the same for four decades. During this time, I determined that my favorite cereals were Lucky Charms and Frosted Mini-Wheats.

Nowadays, I avoid the “junk cereals” in all but rare circumstances. I generally eat the oh-so-exciting Healthy Valley Organic Golden Flax Seed Cereal, usually plain but sometimes with blueberries. But every so often I’ll revert and have a bowl of preserved, sugary goodness.

Now it’s your turn to share your favorite cereals, and see how they do over at the Empty Bowl cereal review site. -ram

Blueberry Waffle O’s were the greatest cereal EVER!! I mis them Ohhh so much!! I also miss Yummy Mummy/Fruit Brute, that was a very good member of the monster cereal group. Cookie Crisp used to be good.. they changed it somehow.. it doesnt taste the same. Fruity Pebbles is always reliable & i would have to say it is my fav, ever since they took my Waffle O’s from me…… (sigh)
