Big Time Cereal Head here. It's my favorite snack. I bounce around between cereals all the time, but I've always got at least 2 different kinds stocked in the pantry. 

 

My favorites In No Order:

 

Peanut Butter Crunch, Golden Grahams, Life, Kroger Brand of Reese's Puffs (it's somehow better than Reese's Puffs), Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Multi-Grain Cheerios Peanut Butter, Kix, Frosted Mini Wheats, Wheaties, Corn Pops, Cinnamon Chex.

 

Can get lost forever:

Rice Krispies, Honeycomb, Apple Jacks, Froot Loops, Trix, Raisin Bran, Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Pebbles, Lucky Charms, Cap'n Crunch (it cuts my mouth!) and others I can't think of

 

 

 

As I shared in the Cinnamon Toast Crunch branding thread my mom never let me have sugary cereals growing up so in a very lame example of sowing my oats I always get the sugary stuff. The one she objected to the most was Cookie Crisp. I remember trying it for the first time and realizing it was just sh*****r Famous Amos cookies and it was super disappointing.

Don't place a box of Cocoa Pebbles in front of me unless you want to see it disappear.

This box was a little bit before my time, but then again, I've always been fascinated with how brands evolve...

And I'm sure there are plenty of you who still can't get enough of this...

Maximum '90s with that teal and purple, the Kabel Bold, and that genie that totally isn't by any means the Aladdin genie.

I read it about nine years ago but haven't since. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit I don't like Vonnegut all that much.

I've given up cereal for nuts and berries with almond milk.

 

Before the carb cutting? I was a Honey Bunches of Oats (or the Trader Joe's equivalent)/Crispix guy.

The Pebbleses are pretty much the only cereals I don't like; they turn into a sloppy mess as soon as you put the milk in.

 

I don't eat as much Trix as I should.

 

@CS85 if you like Cinnamon Chex, you should consider this recipe: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/not-fried-ice-cream-cake

 

I made it with Wegmans brand corn Chex instead of corn flakes to keep it gluten free for the wife, and everybody loves it.

Captain being on this list is pure blasphemy, but to each their own, weak-mouth.  But let's talk about Trix for a second - what an absolute disgrace Trix is.  It started out in a spherical shape, which is kind of lame considering it's Fruity Kix, but then they actually became unique with the various shaped pieces that at least gave it an identity.  They then reverted a decade ago to the spheres again and it's just...just so unpleasant.

Reese's Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I use to like Lucky Charms, but then realized half of it was boring.
