Thirteen of My Favorite Cereals

I am a self-proclaimed cereal junkie. I would eat it for every meal, if someone let me. Here are a few of my faves:

1. Life.

2. Crunch Berries ... but you have to eat out the yellow cereal first and then eat a bowlfull of berries.

3. Cheerios. I remember when Kenner would put in the box a little pamphlet/catalogue thingy that showed all of their toys. I would sit and dream.

4. Boo Berry. Not the new kind. I hate that stuff. The kind they made in the 80s.

5. Franken Berry ... see # 4.

6. Cocoa Puffs. I ate two full bowls of this when I was in labor with Queen Bee, and then threw it all up when my water broke.

7. Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds. This is one my MIL got me interested in because that is all she eats.

8. Frosted Mini Wheats ... mmm... nothing like sugar on a haystack.

9. Lucky Charms ... oh yeah, baby!

10. Bran flakes. Strange amongst this sugar fest, I know.

11. Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch .... yummy goodness.

12. Apple Jacks.

13. Super Sugar Crisp. Had to end the sugar fest with the mother of all sugar-infested cereals.

My favorite cereal is Life and Cheerios but I rarely eat cereal anymore only oatmeal. Yes, I live a dull life *grin*

You would fit in beautifully with my children and my hubby. I don't do cereal. But they love the stuff. And the new french toast crunch and cinnamon bun cereal are on the new list of current favs.

I *love* cereal...the ony problem is, I don't eat it by the bowl, I eat it by the BOX, lol! And it is so expensive anymore! And not to mention -- not very good for you!

My Thursday Thirteen is up, too.

yeah... unfortunately cereal really doesn't have a lot of nutritional value anymore....

I haven't had breakfast yet, so I'm heading to the cabinet to find some cereal! I think I have Honey Nut Cheerios!

Alltime favorite for me: Cap'n Crunch

I hardly ever eat cereal, but when I do, it's #11. Great idea for a Thursday Thirteen! :)

Mine are up too if you'd like to stop by.

I have a weird new cereal combination--raisin bran mixed with shredded wheat with vanilla soy milk on it. It's yummy (and I'm not usually a soy kind of girl). Between me and dh (who is the real sugar cereal guy here), we eat most of those.

I just might have to steal this TT for myself :) Great idea!

My all time fave cereal is Raisin Bran Crunch. But I never get to eat it anymore because my DD always wants it.

Love cereal, but it's not really on the low carb plan...I loved Frosted Flakes, though...and Grape Nuts.

Ever have Cracklin Oat Bran? My husband just calls it crack... because when we have it in the home...he turns into a glutton! All he can do is eat the crack! :)

Some very good cereals listed! I love Life and Peanut Butter Crunch and Crunch Berries and Cheerios and Wheat Chex (okay so that isn't on your list but it is mine)...

Great list!

I do love cereal, but only a very few kinds -- I'm sure I couldn't come up with a list of 13. One thing's for sure, Peanut Butter Captain Crunch would be at the top of the list! ;)

Dammit! I forgot about TT again. LOL! Maybe I'll have to do two posts today.

Anyway, I LURVES me some Boo Berry. And you are right, the old stuff from the 80's.

My favourite cereal is Berry Burst Cheerios, but their harder to find here these days...used to be able to get a huge box at Costco for a reasonable I can only find a tiny box for about $4 which just seems crazy.

Thanks for popping by my TT!

Have not tried the chocolate Lucky Charms. I will have to try that under the guise of getting it for the kids ...

I remember Super Sugar Crisp. Now-a-days they don't mention Sugar in the name of the cereal. But I used to love Sugar Bear. Great idea for a list!

I love cereal and could eat it 3 meals a day. My new favorite is the Life Vanilla Yogurt Crunch :)

Thanks for visiting my TT today!

Lucky Charms are the bomb. I buy them for Hoss, theoretically, but eat them a lot myself. The cereal I keep at the office is more healthy, though (yogurt Cheerios, or Raisin Nut Bran) so that my co-workers don't see me chowing on the colored marshmellows.

Oh, I LOVE this list!!! Cap'n Crunch Berries is my favorite, and I would totally eat out the yellow cereal and save all the berries for last, since they were my favorite. I was so excited when they came out with a cereal that was all berries.

Oh, I'm so with you about the cereal. That is my downfall all the time. I could live on it all day every day. My current favorite is Raisin Bran Crunch. Great list!

Great list! I have to put in a guilty vote for Sugar Corn Pops (but without milk). Thanks for visiting my T13

Bran flakes? Com'on. That ain't a cereal... it's mush when combined with milk.

And I prefer Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch. That and Corn Pops.

Wow this list made my tastebuds quiver. Half that stuff we can't get in Australia and it makes me really wish we could.

I totally miss Life, Cheerios (we have cheerios but they're so NOT the same) and Honeynut Cheerios, Honey Bunches of Oats, Cap'n Crunch and Apple Jacks!
I used to put the cereal of the day in a ziplock bag and take it to work to munch on periodically through the day instead of buying chips or candy. LOL.

mmm...When I feel like a grown up (and I've just robbed a bank) I like the Fruit & Fibre w/peaches & almonds. But Life and Fruity Pebbles are always great!
Great List!

I LOVE cereal as well and we eat a ton of it. Just last night, we had cereal for supper :) I do try to eat the semi-healthy stuff, but I love all the good sugary-ones too :) Great T13!

Have a wonderful day, my T13 is up too...

I have to tell my friend that I found another cereal junkie, when she got married we all teased her that it was all she knew how to make! My favourite is honey nut cheerios, frosted flakes, raisin bran and frosted mini wheats.

We were never allowed to eat "sugar" cereals growing up, Life was about as close to sugar as we got. Except for the stuff we'd sneak out of the cupboard and pour over our bowls of Wheatabix or puffed wheat!!!!

We have some different ones up here in Canada and not all the ones you listed either. Thanks for coming by my TT.

You're just a kid at heart! #2 is funny! Sounds like something I might do!

Remember the alphabet soup? I'd have to spell out words, or either spell ut the alphabet as I ate! Took lots of time!
