    Yesterday, March 7th, was National Cereal Day (believe it or not).

    National Cereal Day - March 7, 2018

    My top 5 all time cereals are:

    5. Lucky Charms (They're magically delicious!)
    4. Alpha-Bits
    3. Froot Loops (Follow my nose, it always knows...)
    2. Wheaties
    1. Fruity Pebbles (Barney, my Pebbles!)

    Apple Jacks would be a close #6 followed by Honey Combs and Super Sugar Crisp, now called Super Golden Crisp (or something), which is very similar to Sugar Smacks. "Dig 'em!"

    This is highly unpopular, but I hated Captain Crunch. All my friends and cousins LOVED it and couldn't understand why I didn't like shredding the roof of my mouth with those mini razor blades.

    There were cereals that I thought were just okay like Total, Special K, Cheerios, Grape Nuts Flakes and Frosted Flakes, but I thought of those as "old people" cereal because my Dad liked those. I liked Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but not as cereal, as a dry snack.

    I think the best part about cereals as a kid were the legendary commercials. Practically every sugary cereal had a catchy jingle and a catchphrase. "It's a honey of an O, it's Honey Nut Cheerios!" In addition, all the cereals marketed towards children came with either a toy or a puzzle inside or on the back of the box.

    I never liked any cereal with chocolate in it. It just never appealed to me or seemed right to eat chocolate for breakfast, so Coco Puffs, Count Chocula, Coco Pops and Cookie Crisp were out.

    Because of my lactose issues, I ate my cereal using water instead of milk. When my friends would sleep over, it would freak them out and they would look at me like I was the Anti-Christ. :lol 

    What are your favorite cereals?

    I will gladly cosign your list of "approved" cereals. for me though. I would likely replace Wheaties with Frosted Flakes and trade Alpha Bits for Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Like you, I have no place for anything chocolate in my cereal.

    No bullshit, Sugar Smacks makes your pee smell just like the cereal. As weird as that sounds I got confirmation from another person that it did the same thing to them.

    Fruity Pebbles is my joint.

    Confirmed. I almost posted that when I mentioned the cereal, but was afraid nobody would know what I was talking about.

    I've always loved Crispix and Chex as far as "adult" cerials go and Crispix is to this day my favorite. Which would get weird looks from my friends when they'd stay the night. That said I also enjoy in probably this order Fruity Pebbles, Frosted Flakes, Golden Crisp, Apple Jacks, and Captain Crunch. I also enjoy Franken-Berry and Boo-Berry during the holidays. It's a shame those last two aren't sold year round anymore.

    So weird, right? Whatever the reason it can't be good for you.

    Crispix! I love that stuff! That and Fruity Pebbles are the only two cereals I actually prefer soggy.

    The crazy thing about it is the speed that it gets filtered through your body! Right after you have a couple of bowls, your urine smells like the cereal instantly! The only other thing that affects me like that is Asparagus. Yuck!

    I should have just made a top 10 list.

    Anyone remember Pac-Man cereal? It was just like Lucky Charms, but the marshmellows were of Pac-Man and the ghosts.

    No idea about the Asparagus, but the thing with cereal actually has to do with how the human body processes sugar. Basically the body doesn't like excessive amounts of sugar so it speeds up getting it out of our systems. It's one of the reasons why when you eat something sugary like candy you get a quick boost of energy, but than it bottoms out really quick.

    The old standby, never-fail cereal for me is good ol' Rice Krispies.

    I also love Special-K Red-Berry, and Double-Chocolate Krave...which is more like a dessert than a cereal.

    Cinnamon Life
    Life
    Frosted Mini Wheats
    Fruity Pebbles
    Cocoa Pebbles
    Cinnamon Toast Crunch
    Apple Jacks
    Alpha Bits and Frosted Cheerios, since they taste identical

    Now to sound like my dad

    Good old fashioned Shredded Wheat. You know, the big bricks you have to rip apart and shower with sugar in the bowl?
    Plain ass original Bran Flakes. Don't ask me why, just really like them.

    Do hot cereals count? If so, then the absolute top of the list:

    Cream of Wheat. All day. Every day. Twice on Sunday.







    As a footnote, if you like Fruity Pebbles, you MUST try them on vanilla ice cream. Cocoa Pebbles work well, too.

    I also agree to that It does it and your pee smells cause I have some of the cereal. It surely did that to me recently and thought it was just me but your totally right.
