this isn't a "favorite cereal" poll because the choice list would have to be a mile long, obviously. (note: brand-name examples are use as such, examples. i know everyone will have their own brands/off-brands being from different countries, some of which might not even still be in production today.) if other, reply with cereal.

So, I didn't eat sugared cereals until .. well, basically adulthood. I still don't eat them as you would normally.. you see a box of a morning cereal to pour in a bowl and douse with milk, I see a box of snackums to eat with a bare hand like one would eat a box of crackerjacks or something.

As is, Corn Chex or whatever the knockoff brand happens to be called is the best ever, and I'll knife-fight you if you disagree. Not to the death mind you, that'd be stupid. To the maiming.

No knife fight from me. Chex are incredible. They're also flexible: when you've had enough unsweetened breakfast/snack, you can douse them in a veritable shit ton of chocolate, peanut butter and powdered sugar as part of the largely successful campaign to commit diabetic suicide by delicious.

I went with healthy because Special K is my favorite over any appreciable length of time. But to be honest, I like most types of cereal and have a special affinity for Apple Jacks, Honey Nut Cheerios and Fruity Pebbles.

I'm stuck with organic cereal because ALL of the mainstream ones have gluten in them.

I really miss sugar crisp, corn pops, and cheerios. Chex are also forcibly removed from my list of edibles, but I remember that they were delicious. o_o Don't maim me.

Chocolate Frosted Flakes FTW. You won't see them many places which is a shame. Cocoa Pebbles or Cinnamon Toast Crunch will do in a pinch.

I don't buy Cookie Crisp anymore as a statement since they succumbed to public pressure and got rid of the robber dogs.

My favorite cereals, by far, are those big, old fashioned shredded wheats (that are about 2 inches by 3 or 4 inches, I think, I'm bad with lengths), and then Crispex. I put some sugar on these, but I can't stand pre-sweetened cereal for some reason, except applejacks and Life, which I never buy.

My past roommates have all individually come to the conclusion that I am a grumpy old (young) man/farmer and even a republican based on my cereal preferences.

Frosted Mini-wheats. Marshmallow stuff's good too, and Chex (haven't had Chex in ages... I should rectify that mistake). Used to like Frosted Flakes-- I put sugar on them, god help me. It's a miracle I'm not diabetic yet. :)

HONEY SMACKS HONEY COMBS HONEY NUT CHEERIOS HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS HONEY HONEY.

I tend to like honey cereals because of how they flavor the milk. Mmmm. And they're good warmed up, too. You can warm Fruity Pebbles and say that they taste good then. Can you?

i'm surprised to see chocolate (my vote, for the record) so low on the list.

@st: i also enjoy cereal dry by itself (although if pressed i prefer it in the traditional style). for convenience, and to keep my hands free of sugary cereal dust, i'll usually pour cereal into a drinking glass and tip a mouthful at a time (in essence drinking the cereal).

I've heard cereal polls of large groups, and cheerios seems to be the most common response, esp. honey nut cheerios. Hence, these results don't surprise me.

Dear God... they make cereal with marshmellow int it?

That is the most horrible thing I have heard of for a while.

My absolute favourite cereal is fruity bix. Which is basically good old australian weet-bix but with bits of dried fruit in it.

As it is, I have no idea what category this falls under... it is fruity, i guess, but not in the same category as something like fruit loops (sugared cereal is disgusting. for srs).

It is possible, and not hard to find gluten free cornflakes, if you don't mind them. My dad also does not eat gluten, and eats cornflakes every morning. (and muesli, but yeah).

I picked the "unsweetened" option, because I do love Chex, Cheerios, etc...but I also like Grape Nuts and Kashi and Muesli and other healthy cereals. If you present me with a bowl of Fruit Loops, you might as well be feeding me chalk. And anyone who knows me knows that I keep emergency moisturizer by my bed in case I accidentally think too much about chalk.

I always return to the classic, vaguely healthy cereals. I'll definitely be fighting on the Corn Chex side.

My mom never let us have sugary cereals growing up, so when I get to college I ate disturbing amounts of Lucky Charms and Fruit Loops until I get that urge out of my system and decided that the less sweet ones really did make a better breakfast (or dinner. I don't think I bothered with breakfast that year. Who needs healthy food in college?) I do occasionally buy a box of the sweet stuff if it has a cool toy in it. And even worse, once in a while I'll get Lucky Charms and eat out all of the marshmallows, and then have the little cereal bits for breakfast for the next couple of days (it's a bowl of lucky!)

This was me exactly. As soon as I moved out I delighted in eating California rolls and a bar of chocolate for breakfast, and Lucky Charms for dinner. It didn't actually take that long for me to decide that there was a reaon my mom made us eat the things she did. Although still like California rolls and chocolate for breakfast.

Seriously. It was really hard for me to pick. Cereal is a staple of my diet, especially since I became a college student. :P Unsweetened Kashi puffs, those organic peanut butter bumpers, Count Chocula, berry granola... everything and anything, almost. I could spend ages in the cereal aisle at most grocery stores.

this thread's poll wrote:plain grain unsweetened cereal (corn flakes, corn chex, wheat chex, cheerios, etc)

If you check the nutrition facts for those cereals you'll see that while they are generally not considered to be "sweet" or "sugary" cereals, none of them meet the definition of "unsweetened". Sugar is an added ingredient in each of your examples and the Chex cereals actually have molasses added in addition to the sugar. Wheat Chex has the most according to the nutrition facts (5g per 47g serving, or over 10% sugar by weight) and Cheerios the least (1g per 28g serving).

That being said, I do generally consider Wheat Chex (one of my favorite cereals) and Cheerios to be healthy cereals. I also enjoy Grape-Nuts and Shredded Wheat, mostly when I've got fruit to put in it. Mueslix and anything with like, oats and pecans and raisins or dates, is good.

The most important part of this post, though, is that I mistakenly found this site, which may or may not be an advertising thing for Grape-Nuts; I'm not really sure. But it's my new favorite thing ever.

very few manufactured food products nowadays have no sugar in them. i'm pretty sure everyone else knows that. i used the phrasing "plain grain unsweetened cereal" as a general label as opposed to "marginally lower sugar level cereal".

I like cereals a lot. I eat them a lot. Here is a brief list of cereals I like

Quisps (they're sooooo good)
King Vitamin
Recee's Puffs
Pops
Quaker: Life (most varieties)
Quaker Oat Squares
Captain Crunch (although I never eat it, cuts your mouth too much)
Special K (especially if they add something to it like strawberries)
Crispix (wish they made a sugared variety)
Cookie Crisps
Frosted Mini-Chex
Smart Start (they still make this?)
Cocoa Krispies (I like the new chocolate/vanilla one too)
Just Bunches (can't eat it though... too crunchy)
Fruity Pebbles

I have a bit of a sweet tooth but like the simple strong flavors of a lot of these. I've also been known to veraciously tear through a box of rice krispies, corn chex, or other homogeneous non-sugared cereal.

It boils down to the fact that "unsweetened" means no added sweetener of any kind, and you still seem to think it means "not sweet". Bananas are unsweetened while still being very sweet and containing a significant amount of sugar.

Most people's perception of the food they buy at the grocery store is shaped more by marketing than by knowing what's actually in the food. But even when you look at the nutrition facts, just thinking about sugar content won't tell you much of anything. Take Wheat Chex as an example—despite the fact that it's got more sugar than Rice or Corn Chex, it's also got more fiber, protein, iron, folic acid (aka vitamin B9) and potassium than the other two by weight. But then you look at Multi-Bran Chex, which sounds like it should be the holy grail of healthy Chex cereals, and it's got twice the sugar and 40% less protein, for a measly 20% more fiber and... 6% daily allowance of copper? What did they do, throw in a roll of pennies, paper wrapper and all? On the other hand, Raisin Bran is pretty good for you, and you may have noticed that most brands coat their raisins in a layer of pure sugar. I've known a lot of people who claimed they never ate unhealthy cereals growing up, only to find out what they mean is they ate mostly Corn Flakes or Rice Krispies. Two servings of either of those is about as nutritious as eating a baseball card and half a Flintstones vitamin for breakfast—and I mean that literally. Mmmm!

Anyway, it's a pet peeve of mine. I'm done ranting now. My favorite crap cereal is Cocoa Puffs.

You only say that because you haven't had Quisps. If you had, you would be curled up in the corner right now shaking in withdrawal at their very mention. Like... Me...

A couple of weeks ago I would have gone with Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds. It had been my favorite for about four years; it has great balance of flavor and texture, and it feels a bit classy without being pretentious. I would refer to it as the 'Cadillac of cereals' and felt witty for doing so.
A little under a month ago I tasted a cereal that my roommate bought that is called "Blueberry Crunch" it's Safeway's generic cinnamon toast crunch but with blueberry flavor instead of cinnamon. We call it 'Blueberry Crack" because it's so addictive and we often are distracted throughout the day thinking about it. The stuff is some of the most delicious food ever made, and I'm not even a particularly big fan of blueberries most of the time. When you finish the cereal, you get to drink the blueberry milk, if you use whole milk it's like some sort of amazing milkshake.
To all law enforcement entities, this is not an admission of guilt...

I'm not sure what it's called... the...cereals? the little round things, anyway, they're shaped like froot(ha) loops, but only red and green. Apple jacks? I threw away the box.

EDIT: I also like to chug massive amounts of soggy rice crispies (the plain ones), I call them rice crispy treats.

Edit, again: Crap
