Rice crispies + Sprinkle chips ahoy cookies.  I can't believe I got though my childhood without developing diabetes.

Garbage list.. CTC is not even in the top ten

I'm with the rice crispies crowd.

ProTip:
You want a chocolatey cereal?
Use the regular cereal with chocolate milk or plain milk with Hershey's.

Cracklin' Oat Bran.  Growing up as a kid in a household of adult cereals, this was actually really, really tasty.

"Raisin Bran"?  If you don't know the difference between Kellogg's Raisin Bran and Post Raisin Bran then please kill yourself before you write another article, you felcher.

Quisp is the correct answer. To pretty much everything.

Yes, this was an actual cereal. Be glad it wasn't Waterworld cereal because nothing is worse than the one time as a kid when you were out of milk and you tried using water instead. Water and cereal simply do not go together.

No Super Sugar Crisp. Boo!

WTF is wrong with you people?

Capn Crunch is the undisputed king of cereals.  Everyone knows this.

Kix is a favorite!? They taste like farking pencil shavings, mixed with with Elmer's glue! I couldn't ever add enough sugar to make it palatable.

Why do most Americans seem to desire candy for breakfast?  Everything on this list is expensive, sugary, crap.

I haven't eaten cereal in 12 years, 4 months, 11 days, 3 hours, and 8 minutes. Still no cure for lactose intolerance.

Or just pour in orange juice instead...works better with less sugary cereals like grape nuts or whatever because orange juice is already pretty sweet....

brimed03: dopekitty74: I'd put Lucky Charms dead last, and move raisin bran up much closer to the top.

Therapy and medication.

There is hope.

/not really


I like the marshmallows in the lucky charms but the cereal pieces are nasty. Count Chocula was always my favorite when I was a kid.

Frosty_Icehole: tuffsnake: And platinum goes to the old Nintendo cereal that was half Zelda, half Mario

Oddly enough, the taste was oddly similar to Rainbow Brite cereal.
That was a delicacy easy to miss out on if you weren't a girl or didn't have sisters.


Sometime in the 80's there was Pacman cereal (marshmallow ghosts!) and Strawberry Shortcake cereal, which made your milk taste like strawberry quik.

ndeans: My Colon Blow.

It was on the Deadspin list referenced in TFA, albeit at a very low ranking.


I remember those. I loved them. They tasted like little oatmeal cookies.

D135: REESE's PUFFS!!!

Triumph: What kind of lunatic lists that Reese's Puffs garbage and not Peanut Butter Captain Crunch?

Whoa, whoa, wat?  that's a thing?  I need to find these!


I always thought it had a slightly peanut buttery flavor anyhow when i was a kid. Now i find they just taste like corn pops

Oldiron_79: elysive: The best cereals in no particular order:

Life
Chex
Cheerios
Captain Crunch (lost weight on a Capt Crunch diet before, yum!)
Kix
Crunchy Corn Bran
Rice Krispies

Well no wonder you lost weight on Cap'n crunchndiet, the shiat cuts your mouth where you can't eat.


I lost a baby tooth to a bowl of Cap'n Crunch when I was 8

Flavored with the extra hint of blood from ripping your mouth apart.

No Love for Honey/Sugar Smacks? I mean, come on! They look like a tasty portion of female anatomy. They should be a part of every complete & balanced breakfast. I can't be the only one...can I??

hundreddollarman: I'm sorry but Cinnamon Toast Crunch is farking disgusting. And Corn Pops are overrated. You leave them in milk for more than 2 minutes and they're this slimy squishy mess.

/Rice Krispies for life.


HEATHEN!!

Did you think I said All Bran?  Because that cereal truly did - and probably still does - taste like cardboard.  Only it was unsweetened.

My Colon Blow.

Thanks to TFA, I had to go running around to find a box of it. I held off on my craving until this morning, then set off to Hellmart. The whole aisle was stocked and pristine except for two spaces, one for some odd flavors of Kellogg's flakes, and the other for Cracklin' Oat Bran. I even had the guy check in the back, since the website said they had them. Nope, there was supposedly a case in stock, but none in the back. So my adventure continued. Next was a few miles down the road to the ghetto-ish supermarket. Finally, they had them, and on sale to boot. I got the only two boxes they had. So freaking good.

Barbara's Peanut Butter Puffins.

//good enough to eat 'em raw.
//the chocolate & peanut butter is just as awesome.

apoptotic: Multigrain Cheerios are better than Honey Nut, and the list fails without any variety of Total or Oatmeal Crisp.


I would like to know how General Mills takes a really good cereal (Cheerios) adds more ingredients, (barley, wheat, rice, & corn) but it tastes like cardboard?

Cheerios is my #1 cold cereal.

anyone who doesn't prefer cinnamon life over regular life is out of their god damn minds.

qorkfiend: 1. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
2. Cinnamon Toast Crunch


QFT

Golden Grahams and Fruity Pebbles would be in the top 5.

I am flat-out excluding chocolate cereals, that is cheating. They should be their own category. In which case Cocoa Puffs and Cookie Crisp would be up there. And there are those chocolate filled ones that I cannot remember, starts with a K?
 
2014-02-28 04:40:43 PM
I'd like to see Team flakes back as well.  I also like most cinnamon-flavored cereals, but most chocolate
ones are crappy (two - and only two - exceptions: Cocoa Puffs and Cocoa Krispies; NOT EVER
Cocoa Pebbles, Reese's Puffs or Krave).  Also: Why no Quisp? Why no Frosted Bran (a short-lived
Kellogg cereal from the early 1990s)? How about a return of Crispy Critters (the full-sugar version
from the 1960s; not the low-sugar - blecch - version from 1987)? What about Country Corn Flakes
(General Mills' corn flake - easily put Kellogg's to shame)? No Post Toasties? And why doesn't
Cookie Crisp come in a vanilla-wafer variety anymore? (The chocolate-chip version is YUCKY!)
Sigh...I could go on forever, but it's getting late...

syrynxx: "Raisin Bran"?  If you don't know the difference between Kellogg's Raisin Bran and Post Raisin Bran then please kill yourself before you write another article, you felcher.


Actually, Kellogg's and Post's raisin brans taste pretty similar to me, but I will say they are by far
the two best-tasting.  However, in the 1980s General Mills had a better alternative called
Crispy Wheats 'n Raisins, but it's off the market; Kellogg's Raisin Bran Crunch is about the
closest to it in taste.  (Avoid store brands; they taste like sawdust.  There's also a brand called
Skinner's; it's about as appealing as another Skinner is to Bart Simpson.)

Is it a coincidence that trix is the same shape and size as rabbit poop?

AverysDad: Is it a coincidence that trix is the same shape and size as rabbit poop?


No coincidence, however what makes it magical is that it is Easter Bunny poop.

That's where the good flavor comes from.
