    Interesting. Cascadian Farms (an organic brand) ranks lower overall than Kelloggs. Why the hell am I spending more on stupid Cascadian Farms?
    What's to explain? It's a bunch of people, most of whom you've never met, who are just as likely to be homicidal maniacs as they are to be normal everyday people, with whom you share the minutiae of your everyday life. It's totally normal, and everyone would understand.

    Also, Cheerios is noticeably missing from the list.

    Cheeriors?

    OK, I just didn't see it.

    I'm just being a smart-arse.

    I'm surprised to see them that high, actually. I think their GI is pretty high. Pretty much like eating sugar.

    pardon the obvious question, but how do you have 64 boxes of cereal at present? Do you live in Colorado City?

    One of my bike rides takes me past a General Mills plant - it smells vaguely like a brewery (yes, I know what a brewery smells like - lived across from the Koenisberg brewery in Strasbourg, France on my mission). Maybe that is why processed cereals are mildly addictive. Anyway, I have to go with Wheat Chex, Oatmeal, and Roman Meal - all good, fibrous cereals - a must for a man of my age.

    I love cereal, too. I was so poor in college that the only thing I could afford was a single $0.79 bean burrito from taco bell and the knock off cocoa puffs at smiths for dinner. Serious.

    How many boxes do you go through in typical day? Sheesh, I thought we were crazy. We'll have up to 8 boxes of cereal at any given time.

    SG, this is really impressive. I basically buy cereal in the same way you do, but our pantry is much smaller and I'm only able to squeeze in about 25 boxes.

    Surfah chastised me today for buying just 3 boxes of my all-time favorite cereal. HoneyGraham Oh's.

    I am sad.

    But they are really small boxes, I said.

    I love cold cereal in general, but now I am 8 months pregnant and it is pretty much the only thing I ever feel like eating. He's so mean.

    This is my favorite ceral also. I also like Corn Bran also.

    Oh's are great as an ice cream topping. Try it, you will like it.

    You have launched a full-fledged assault on the roof of your mouth. Still, it is worth it. Oh's are sooo good.

    When I was living in Provo during my law school days, we would eat bean burritos with nothing else (not even salsa). The beans were Rosarita refried brand. Blah! Also, Top Ramen was a staple. I did splurge on Root Beer however; a man has to have some small luxuries in life. As for cereal, generic cheerios always seem to find a way into our cupboard.

    Bah! I didn't chastise you. I simply asked if you wanted to buy a milk cow loud enough so the lady in the aisle with us heard. She didn't think it was funny. Neither did Gidget.

    And you still got 3 boxes of them.

    Wow, blast from the past. We were home from our honeymoon maybe a couple of months and I go grocery shopping. I am still in law school at the time, so we are still in student starvation mode. As was always the case, Oh's were on sale. I bought a couple of boxes.

    I come home and my in-laws are at our place (can't remember....maybe we were going to dinner or something). I bring in the groceries, show her the box and say, "only married a month and I'm already giving you the big O!"

    I didn't know her parents were in the other room at the time.

    I thought it was funny, btw. My wife didn't.

    We rarely buy Oh's anymore.
    Fitter. Happier. More Productive.

    I thought Triplet was a Junior in high school in 1984. I think he's trying to shave a few years.

    My brother used to put in his retainer just to eat Oh's. Then he could crunch with reckless abandon and be no worse for wear.

    That's hilarious.

    I am curious why they have never made a bigger box? I realize it might not be the most popular cereal, but many unpopular cereals come in more than one size box. I mean, I could be computing wrong but this cereal has been around for at least 20 years right? I ate it when I was in elementary.

    I need a bigger box.

    Right before our oldest was born, Macey's in Provo had a 10 for $10 sale on Cheerios. My wife bought 30 boxes about two weeks before the child was born. The day she went into labor we were out. She ate them by the handful straight from the box.

After I got everything I needed in Fred Meyer, I walked back to the front of the store by walking through the cereal aisle to see if there were any good deals. I found one of my son's favorite cereals, Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats Little Bites Chocolate cereal on sale, 3 boxes for $5. There was a limit of 6, so I added 6 boxes to the cart and proceed to the check out counter. After I paid the bill, the cashier handed me my receipt and a few Fred Meyer in-store coupons that printed out. When I returned to the car, I loaded the groceries, sat down in the driver's seat, and thumbed through the coupons. One of them caught my eye:

    "$4.00 of your next shopping order for buying 5 boxes of Kellogg's cereal"

    Wait, what? I just got a $4 coupon for buying 5 boxes of cereal that cost me $10?

    I quickly did the math in my head. If I buy 5 boxes of cereal @ 3 for $5 == $8.34 less $4.00 ....

    $4.34 for 5 boxes of cereal weighing a total of 80 ounces???!!!


    At a price per ounce cost of 5½¢, this is an incredibly eff-ing good deal.

    I immediately took the coupon back into the store and bought 5 more boxes of the Mini-wheats cereal for a total cost of $4.34. The same $4 coupon printed out. I took it and....

    Then I did it again.

    And again.

    I repeated the process a total of 5 times. After about 15 minutes, I had 31 boxes of cereal in my car that I paid a grand total of $27.71 (no sales tax on cereal in Washington state).... and a $4.00 coupon to use on my next shopping order (tomorrow?).

    The expiration dates on the boxes? All in March and April of 2011.

    When I got home with the cereal the wife rolled her eyes... she had after all, sent me to the store with a very small list.

    [Note: many different Kellogg's cereals on sale at Fred Meyer including Frosted Flakes ($2/box), Froot Loops ($2/box), Rice Krispies (3/$5), and several others.]

    cheers.


    Just checked the coupon... this deal is good through May 15th, 2010.
    That is awesome. I love cereal, especially after getting home late at night. My preferences are HoneyNut Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs and Captain Crunch. I also like Wheat Chex, especially with sugar and cream.

    Here's a great, simple cereal recipe. It's not for people who aer trying to lose weight, but it is relatively healthy and downright yummy:

    Grandpa’s Cereal
    Serves 4

    The cereal thickens considerably as it soaks overnight. Hence, plan to add extra milk in the morning in order to soften and loosen the muesli.

    1 cup low-fat milk, plus additional in the morning if desired
    1 cup whole milk plain yogurt, plus additional for the morning
    2 tablespoons honey, or to taste
    2 cups instant oatmeal, preferably McCann’s Irish oatmeal
    fresh berries, sliced bananas or grated apple if desired

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, yogurt, and honey. Add the oatmeal and stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, stir the muesli well and add additional milk as desired to loosen and soften the muesli. Serve with fresh berries, sliced bananas or grated apple if desired. Leftovers keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.

    Great Value Raisin Bran. I'm old(er).

    I have a special combo of Wheat Chex and generic raisin bran with extra raisins. I could add my own raisins to Wheat Chex but I like the sugar covered raisins in raisin bran. I like to let the Wheat Chex layer soak in milk for a few minutes and then I add the raisin bran layer.

    My sweet daughter made breakfast for me one morning and informed me that she had "pre-soaked" my cereal. Unfortunately it was straight raisin bran and very soggy.
