No matter the time of day, a big bowl of cereal will quell any case of the munchies. Just grab a big bowl, fill it up and add milk… grab a chair, your spoon and dig in! Remember, the next time you go out to the grocery store, replenish the pantry and the fridge. Don’t forget the milk!
Biggest Waste of Potential: Oreo O’s
We still can’t figure out! How did this idea go so wrong? Oreos are absolutely delish and dipped in milk they are doubly delish. Oreo O’s taste nothing like Oreos and makes the milk look like dirty dishwater. Why did they remove the cream filling aspect in favor of tiny little cream filling-flavored marshmallow flecks? Whose idea was this? They should be locked up.
The Dark Horse: Honey Bunches of Oats
They name doesn’t really sound very appealing, but they more than make up for it with flavor. Do yourself a favor and slice up some fresh strawberries or a banana for your next bowl; it’s the stuff dreams are made of.
Most Overrated: Lucky Charms
Yep… we said it. Lucky Charms are gross and it is high time that we all admit it to ourselves. Maybe Lucky simply hypnotized everybody, because what is there to love about this cereal? The marshmallows get soggy and taste like stale meringue and the bits of toasted oat that make up about 75% of the box is so disappointing. Not to mention the nasty marshmallow milk that remains at the end. No thanks.
Most Underrated: Krave
Why isn’t Krave more popular? Krave is a chocolate-filled cereal that never feels too overwhelming or rich. It even tastes great without the milk, so if you forget the milk at the store… you’re safe!
Best Post-Cereal Milk: Cocoa Puffs
It is a make-your-own chocolate milk kit. Need we say more?
Worst Post-Cereal Milk: Fruity Pebbles
Rainbow barf in a bowl. Yuck!
How Did They Mess it Up: Cookie Crisp
Did Cookie Crisp take a page from the Oreo handbook, because once again, how do you mess this up? A bunch of mini chocolate chip cookies floating in a bowl of milk sounds amazing, right? Then why, oh why is this cereal missing the mark? You’re better off just putting a bunch of those Trader Joe’s chocolate chip cookies into a big bowl and pouring some milk over the top. Why is a legit cookie cereal so hard to create?
Might as Well be a Basket of Twigs: Shredded Wheat
This should not be consumed by a human being. Breakfast cereal is supposed to make us feel like a bunch of little kids eating sugar, not a bunch of cows grazing in a field. Adding fresh fruit won’t even save this one.
Best Slogan: Reptar Crunch
What is more fun than coming up with a new cereal slogan? “He’s big! He’s green! He’s just in time for breakfast!” Have fun beating that one General Mills.
