As a little it was Alpha-bits or nothing.  During the 90s I remember Golden Corn Flakes which were sweet but not as sweet as Frosted Flakes (nasty. I'd rather eat a bowl of powdered sugar). Wish they hadn't stopped making those. I also loved Corn Pops and Golden Grahams.

There used to be a multi-grain cereal called Team Flakes, if they still made it I'd live on the stuff.

When I was a kid, during the winter on Sunday nights after we'd been outside playing in the snow all day, my Mom would make us for dinner a 'brick' of shredded wheat. She would put it into a soup bowl and cover it with hot milk, a drizzle of honey and a pat of butter. It warmed your bones from inside out, and it would fill your stomach--the digestion would you make dozy soon after eating and you would sleep like a log all night long.

Shredded wheat on its own is just goat food, but the warmed milk, butter and honey made it lovely.

2014-02-27 09:15:10 PM  
Smurfberry Crunch is #1.  Don't ask me why, been chasing that dragon for years now.

Life (barf!), Cinnamon Life (sorta barf!), Reese's Puffs (way off the mark), Rice Chex (corn is superior), Kix (really????), Trix (after they introduced the fruit shapes it's been utter crap), Special K (mom cereal), and Cookie Crisp (ya'll be eating some nasty cookies) should not be on that list.

The prototype for Calvin and Hobbes sugared cereal is Sugar Jets. (Which were fantastic.) I haven't seen them in donkey's years. 30 40 50 years? Other sweet cereals from my youth: Wheat Honeys and Rice Honeys. Also fantastic.

But if you go all healthy then its hard to beat Cheerios.

And now that I've done a slight bit of research, turns out both were made by Ralston.

/Rice Krispies for life.

And rice krispies isnt a mess?  Lol.  Cinnamon toast crunch you have to use less milk, or eat a corner of the bowl and tilt the milk into there.

Do people really buy the name brand stuff?  The off brand stuff is just as good, and half the price.


No way! I go to coupons.com and bettycrocker.com as well as other sites and print out as many coupons as I can get. When you find the sales,you can get boxes of name brand cereal for less than a dollar.Last week I acquired alot of Krave for $.50 a box.The week before I got Cinnamon Toast and Chocolate Toast Crunch for $.60 a box.

Corn pops and Krave are quite possibly the worst 'foods' known to mankind.  I'd rather eat the box they come in.

Captain Crunch used to tear up the roof my my mouth.  Eating the cereal, I mean.  You perverts.

Peanut Butter Captain Crunch and Crunchberry were both great.

sniderman: If you don't mind buying non-brand name cereals at places like Aldi's or Save-a-Lot, Captain Chocos is the best damn cereal I've ever had. And this is from a die-hard Coco Puffs fan.

[img.fark.net image 248x351]

/plus, he kinda looks like The Tick


That list is pretty much upside down.
I'm a cheap old sombiatch and I shop at Aldi as well. Good stuff!

With the exception of oatmeal, their brands of raisin bran and non-sweetened spoon sized shredded wheat are the only cereals in my cupboard at the moment. I usually put some honey and milk on the shredded wheat and only milk with the raisin bran. You can make some dadgum yummy muffins with that raisin bran too.
 
2014-02-27 10:48:33 PM  

metaskie: Honey Comb is not at the top of either of these lists, so fark both these writers with a rusty jackhammer.


I helped take care of my grandmother the last couple of years of her life.  When I made her breakfast, she would have me mix Honeycomb and Great Grains together in the bowl.  It was actually pretty good.

/Nona loved her some Honeycomb.

Is that because a hearty breakfast with a bowl of glass shards in milk soon drilled a giant festering cave-hole through your upper palate so deep that when you shine a light in your nose it reflects on your tongue rendering dieters unable to eat even pudding without choking and that's why the Cap'n Crunch diet guarantees loss of pounds and inches?

Because I've been on that diet too.

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....

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.

My Colon Blow.

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


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.

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.

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.)

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

That's where the good flavor comes from.
