Re: The milk left in the bowl after the cereal has been eaten.

Oh weetabix, why aren't you sold where I live? :(

In the absence of weetabix, I eat my cereal with flavored yogurt instead of milk. The yogurt doesn't take up the sugary cereal flavor the same way milk does, so it's both easy and tasty to eat it with a spoon afterwards.
