Junk Drawer - 3/18/10 - Let's be Cereal


Breakfast cereals, lets discuss.

Americans like their cereals.  I looked on Wikipedia and they list almost 500 cereals.  I was raised poor white trash so I didn't have the opportunity to eat all those fancy serials like some unnamed elitist starting point guard. 

When my evil mother decided to splurge on us and buy a sugary cereal, she would buy the knock off brands with names like "Fruit-Ohs" or "Choco-Ohs" that came in a large plastic bag.   My brother or sister would always open the entire top of the bag, which made pouring the cereal into a bowl a pain in the neck. 

My mother normally bought Cornflakes.  I always hated that they got soggy fast and it was even worse when we would have to eat them with water instead of milk. 

I have never been huge on sugary cereals.  Even in my youth, I preferred Raisin Bran or Grapenuts over Fruit Loops or Coco Pebbles.  These days I eat a lot of Honey Nut Cherrios because they take longer than other cereals to get soggy.

I should also mention Malt-O-Meal and Cream of Wheat.  I was never a big fan of those and these days I prefer grits.
