SparkPeople had a blog that listed the 10 best and 10 worst breakfast cereals.
Post Spoon Size Shredded Wheat - Straw
Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs - Styrofoam
Kellogg's Unfrosted Mini Wheat Bites - Straw
Uncle Sam Flakes - Soggy
Fiber One - Original - Make you fart, no flavor
Nature's Path Synergy 8 Cereal - Never tried it, but I would bet ....
Weetabix - A whole bale of straw
Kellogg's All-Bran Original - These will make you poop ... very soon
Cascadian Farms Multigrain Squares - More straw
General Mill's Cheerios - I don't know about you, but these make me poop. These almost have flavor.
Kellogg's Froot Loops
General Mills Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Kellogg's Corn Pops
General Mills Lucky Charms
General Mills Reese's Puffs
Kellogg's Choconilla Cocoa Krispies
Kellogg's Special K Blueberry
Kellogg's Special K Chocolatey Delight
Belgo & Bellas YogActive Chocolatey Pillows
Quaker Cap'N Crunch Berries
Kellogg's doesn't quite have a monopoly here, but ... aw c'mon ... my faves are number 2 and 3. And Cinnamon Toast Crunch! I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch. And the Box says it has a shirtload of whole grain goodness (See? Right there on the label "It must be good for you because we put in a whole shirtload of whole grain goodness in every spoonful.")
And and and It's just about my favorite cereal on the entire blog.
But NOOOOOOO. They only "good for you" cereals on this list taste like straw. In fact the "best" one IS straw. In fact so are 3, 7, and 9.
And it looks like no matter how blech a cereal tastes, if you add any kind of confection to it, it goes on the bad list. Special K with blueberry and with Chocolaty Delight are bad cereals, just above Chocolatey Pillows (get me some of those!) and the ever lovin' Cap'N Crunch Berries.
Oh well. I can save the Cinnamon Toast Crunch for a treat.
This makes me very sad indeed.
