Why Cereal is Awesome

It just is.

Okay, so that's not a great answer.

There are a lot of awesome things about cereal.  You don't have to cook it (I'm only talking cold cereal here, obviously - no oatmeal, which get's it's own special category), you can eat it straight out of the box, or get fancy and pour some milk over it.  I recommend putting it in a bowl first.

My favorites:

1. Kashi Cinnamon Harvest - if you haven't tried this, go out to your organic food section at the grocery and check it out.  Made with cane sugar, and it's just...yum.

2. Raisin Nut Bran - the stuff that started me thinking about this topic.  I'm eating it now.  It's the nutty covering all over the raisins that makes it special.  It stays crunchy in milk for a decent amount of time, too.

3. Wheat Chex - Sometimes, it's all about the basics.  This stuff is just good.  Period.

What's your favorite?


  1. The original Shredded Wheat...bails of wheat...with maple syrup, no sugar.  Why d'you ask? ☺

    I completely agree about cereal being awesome. And I tend to sleep better if I have a bowl before bed. My favorite is definitely Honey Nut Cheerios. Or Honey Nut Chex. I love both, lol.

  4. Frosted mini wheats, multigrain and honey nut cheerios

  5. I love cereal. My favorite is Lucky Charms. When I have a bowlI love to eat the cereal first then I go back and eat the marshmellows.

  6. Cereal is awesome for sure... I like Chocolate Cheerios, Chocolate Chex Mix, and Coco Pebbles.. I think I see a pattern here... Oh, and I just recently  tried Coco Puffs Brownie Bites cereal. It's great just out of the box... Yup, I definitely see a theme in my cereal choices.... Pam B.

  7. Don't know if you know the great Bataille on eroticism or not so here is the only interview ever of him:


    one of the comments - I have been thinking about the erotic nature of the first part of H/D and the expression of guilt in some of the comments about it. I too had those feelings and have been thinking why. And transgression was it for me and so here is someone else saying it too.

    @lolpope I can not be sure, but I think you have a point about his upbringing, that is to say, sexuality is in some ways even today a controversial subject, and that is in part what lends to its immense allure. Batailles talked a lot about transgression, i.e. transcendning stigma and taboos, and I think for many people the most shunned acts (rape for example) are among the most physically or erotically and

    mentally satisfying.

  9. nothing about cereal tho

  10. Cinnamon Toast Crunch...yum

  11. Chocolate Marshmallow Maties. YUM. I don't eat it often because it has a LOT of sugar.

  12. ok so if I did not have a family to cook for I would live on cereal!  Love all kinds of cereal but my favorite would be Multi Grain Cheerios and Special K Granola! Chocolate Cheerios being a bed time snack!
