Favorite sweet cereal

Cocoa Puffs
Lucky Charms (they're magically delicious)
Fruit Loops
Corn Pops (themselves the subject of another thread)
Twinkles (around in early 60s)
Sugar Crisp
Crispy Critters (1960s-early 80s)
Most chocolate and fruit oat/grain cereals like the above.:)


I haven't bought sweet cereal in ages, but when I did, I liked (some of these will show my age!):

Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch
Count Chocula
Cocoa Puffs
Apple Jacks


I used to like all kinds of cereal until they made them 'whole grain' now most cereal tastes like flavored cardboard.....sad

Cereal used to be basically's a hollow shell of what it used to be. I vividly remember the taste before the whole grain bs happened.

I just get angry people making decisions for us. "You need more whole grain." Do I? Just stupid. I think they wanted a cheaper way to make it or something. Also hate when they change candy. After the 2008 recession they changed candy bars too. To make them cheaper. Like I think they changed milky way to have more pointless caramel. Caramel is just pure sugar, caramelized lol. Just put sugar in a hot pan, boom caramel. So cheap. It's like a thin chocolate shell holding caramel and a sliver of a peanut is hiding in there or something....I miss how it used to be, thick like a snickers. But the balance was perfect.

I think they were trying to market it as fighting obesity. I mean people are obese mostly cuz they keep eating. Apples are healthy but if you randomly eat 12 that's bad. Eating 1 bowl of delicious cereal is fine. Suddenly eating 10 is not. You can't stop people from eating the volume of food they eat by making it taste like crap (trying to make it healthy). In fact that's worse. They will feel unsatisfied and eat more......

But the one's I like are: (keep in mind before the whole grain crap)
Oreo O's (best cereal ever made, they don't make them anymore sadly, at least they were not tainted by whole grain bs)
Corn Pops
Lucky Charms
Coco Pebbles
French Toast Crunch
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Rice Krispies
Cocoa Krispies
Fruity Pebbles
Cookie Crisp
Frosted Mini Wheats
Raisin Bran
Apple Jacks
Honey Nut Cherrios
Honey bunches of oats
Honey Smacks
Honey Graham Ohs!
Golden Crisp
Frosted flakes

Also more I can't remember since they were either so long ago, or limited edition cereals.


My all time favorites in no particular order:

Cracklin' Oat Bran (the closest cereal there is to an ACTUAL cookie!!)
Fruity Pebbles
Cocoa Pebbles
Golden Grahams
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Frosted Flakes
