The oatmeal's crawling
Up the walls, up the walls again
And the corn flakes
The corn flakes are my only, only friends
Fruit loops stare like eyes
I believe the grits are spies
Well, that's all right

Cereal at night (cereal at night)

I eat cereal at night all the time, but it's probably not the best thing for you to go to bed on unless you need some fuel for a run the next day. Much better would be a spoonful of peanut butter.

I've been eating this lately:

Whole wheat, 0g sugar. It's not the best tasting cereal ever, but it's fine with some milk.

Yep, great for a snack.

Bowl of frosted mini-wheats = fantastic afternoon snack.

I never have them for breakfast.

I've been having cereal as a midnight snack since high school. But I don't eat radioactive shiat like Froot Loops or Lucky Charms, it's usually granola/nut/honey cereals.

Fark all y'all hating on Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs. I might have 2-3 bowls of Honeycomb for dinner tonight (apparently, there's a version with mini-marshmallows now, for added diabetes-ness).

// had 2 bowls of Crispix for an after-dinner snack last night
// cereal is the best

Granola before you go to bed + a cup of coffee in the morning = quick and easy morning crap.

Honey Nut Cheerios is my crack....yet I rarely, if ever, eat it at breakfast time.

/Frosted Flakes with cut up banana hits the spot occasionally too

And here I am making and freezing cookie dough and then baking it when I want an evening snack like a chump.

and the back graphics and texts saying it makes a great night time snack.  its mostly because these are 99% marketed to children (the 1% being stoners and fatties). it isnt that outlandish to conclude, however erroneous it may be.

they'll certainly say it wasnt their intention, ya know, for legal purposes.

I love a handful of frosted miniwheats tossed in my afternoon yogurt, but that's about the only time I eat cereal.
 
2014-06-11 02:49:56 PM
Raisin Bran Crack .  . uh, Crunch . . . it's a permanent late-night-snack item of my shopping list.

Damn you all for making me crave cereal when I can't get to any.

My son won't touch the stuff.
 
2014-06-11 05:13:37 PM
I, for one, enjoy cereal before bedtime.

Count me in as someone that also eats cereal at night.  Although I never eat cereal with a lot of sugar- I hate sugar, for the most part.   Its the perfect way to wind down.

The packaging advertises it as a great night time snack. You even typed that. It is not at all being marketed as a dinner.

/sorry if I wasn't clear about my issue being the dinner part
//frosted flakes seem to be marketed more towards adults now, with the nostalgia factor

actually, i was saying there was more to it than just 'moon and stars behind tony'.

legally, marketing knows how to influence without being overt about their reasons.  it has literally made itself a science on how to most effectively influence consumers.  those cereals still say 'a part of a balanced breakfast' or 'fortified with vitamins and minerals' which idiots equate with 'must mean it's nutritious'.   of course they aren't overtly saying 'dinner' but it is not a stretch to draw that conclusion.  i knew when Mom was too lazy to make a 'proper' dinner and instead it was 'Breakfast for dinner' night.  as kids of course we loved it.  i still do it as an adult for the same reasons, convenience and comfort food.  but eggs, bacon, pancakes/biscuits were also never marketed (in the 80s at least) as 'dinners'.  no ad exec or marketing consultant will guffaw at such a notion as hoping for consumers to confuse night time cereal snacks for dinner items.

yes, only an idiot and/or child would think of this as dinner.  but idiots number in the millions and are absolutely marketed to.

Currently addicted to Mini Wheats.  Almost every night.  I only have 1 bowl, but it's a mixing bowl...

The kid in me likes the frosted side, but the adult in me likes to poop everyday.

is pretty much the worst cereal in the history of cereal.  I love carbs, and until recently would pretty much eat anything with sugar in it, but this stuff is beyond gross.

I never have cereal for breakfast, only as a snack.

Mm, Golden Grahams.
 
2014-06-12 03:51:56 AM
I just pour the cereal into bed and sleep on it. It's absorbent AND I don't have to get up if I get cravings in my dreams.

I eat cereal for breakfast and as a snack because I am a lazy non-cooking mofo.

I can't be the only one putting cereal on ice cream for dessert.

I have a bowl of this almost every night.  When it isn't that, I like

This used to be my favorite.....

.....but nowadays, I just buy some freeze dried blueberries and sliced almonds and throw them in with the Shredded Wheat, or whatever cereal I'm eating.
