    I did not know that but I loved Golden Grahams when I was a kid. Re: S'mores are you guys talking Kellogg's or Malt-O-Meal? B/c I like the K brand but strongly prefer MoM S'mores. The fact that it comes in a huge bag is a plus (especially compared to the pathetically small K S'mores box).

    Edit: I just looked it up and the Kellogg's version is Smorz so I assume we are all talking about Malt-O-Meal.

    I am definitely talking MoM or Post brand (i.e. grahams with marshmallow and chocolate puff pieces). The Kellogs Smorez are ok, but definitely a step down.

    BTW, when MoM Smore's first hit the market, they were in a bag. But about a year ago, my local grocers stopped carrying them (even though they still carry all the other MoM bagged cereals). About that same time, I started seeing the Post S'mores in a box. I haven't done a side-by-side comparison, but from memory, they taste pretty much identical. I've long wondered if they aren't actually MoM Smores being sold as Post cereal. It does seem like Post has made a big push to introduce new cereals in the last 2 years.

    As for the comparison between Golden Grahams and the graham cereal in S'mores, I think one big difference is that the S'mores grahams are sugar dusted. IIRC, Golden Grahams used to be that way as well. They aren't anymore, and I think that is a huge part of why they aren't as good as they once were.

    We're just blessed in the 208 to still have the big bag MoM S'mores, I guess.

    My favorite cereals that I eat regularly are all non-sugary.

    Wheaties, Corn Chex, Cheerios, and Grape Nuts.

    However, put a box of Cocoa Pebbles in front of me, and it will be gone in less than 24 hours.

    I've been refraining from cereal since around the time that the dude told us about the Obesity Code.

    Prior to my cereal sabbatical, these were among my go-tos:

    Life (original or cinnamon)
    Wheat Chex
    MoM Frosted Mini Spooners
    MoM Golden Puffs

    Here's my take:

    Cocoa Crispies are great. The key advantage they have over Cocoa Pebble is that Pebbles get mushy pretty quickly (I have never had an issue with getting them down the hatch in short order, however). But a fresh bowl of pebbles with cold milk is tops for me personally.

    Cocoa Puffs have inferior chocolate flavor, and they tear up the roof of my mouth. Pass.

    All Frosted Flakes variations are pretty much awful. They've tried Cinnamon (disgusting--literally coats the inside of your mouth with a bitter film) Chocolate, and Honey, that I know of. I could eat Honey in a pinch (though they're not as good as the sweetened flakes in Raisin Bran Crunch) but the others are just awful. They need to stop trying to make that work.

    Default What cereal do you eat?

    Tried a couple of new cereals this weekend:

    Kellog’s Pop Tarts Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon


    Meh. The flavor on these is ok, though they don’t really taste like a brown sugar pop tart. That said, the texture is really strange. Almost like chewy styrofoam. I can’t quite get over it. Because of that, I give them a thumbs down. Probably won’t buy again.

    Post Honey Bun


    These are really good. Like legit add to the rotation good. This is Post’s best offering to date. Keep in mind, I love S’mores, and I am a fan of their Oreo O’s (chocolate), Nutter Butter, and Powdered Donette flavors. But this is much better. Perfect texture; not too hard but still firm enough to hold up when soaked in milk. Sweet but not too sweet, and the honey flavor is subtle and natural—not artificial like so many sugared cereals. If you like cereal, you definitely need to give these a go. Thank me later.

    I ate my fair share of Zucaritas on my mission. I remember teaching la cocinera in my first area how important it was to make the powdered milk the night before and then let it chill all night in la refri so it was cold in the morning. This has never occurred to her or my Latino trainer, who were both raised on lukewarm powdered milk.

    Then I went to my second area, in the middle of the jungle, and they ate their cornflakes with hot milk. Never got used to that. If you think cornflakes get soggy in cold milk, multiply that by 1000 for hot milk. Instant mush. I had to teach that cook the chilled milk trick as well.

    I was over a year into my mission before I actually got pasteurized, homogenized milk. I also had a grocery store in that area that sold Quaker brand bagged cereal. Marshmallow Safari and Sweet Crunch for days. I was in heaven.

    LOL - I started off mixing up my powdered milk to put on my corn flakes (when we were lucky enough to be able to buy them) but by the end of my mission I had devolved to simply dumping the dry powdered milk onto the corn flakes, pouring cold water on it and mixing the whole mass in the bowl.

    My wife bought some Donut O's, so I was obligated to try them. With milk, they were pretty good. Not my favorite cereal ever. I think I preferred them without the milk.

    A "fairly fit man" just may be the perfect description for where I'm at physically in life right now. I tried to come up with a better or more accurate three-word description, and I couldn't. Well done.

    As for the cereal, I love it. I really do. But believe me when I say that i'm well aware that it's 100% processed sugar and just about the worst thing I can eat. Which is why I eat it as a treat, and not as a regular part of my diet. But if I could eat it every day without gaining weight, I totally would.
