    Do you eat cereal? The healthy ones or the sugary ones?

    My favorites are raisin bran, Golden Grahams, Count Chocula

    i like the healthy ones ... but even those sometimes have too much sugar for me. i have a huge sweet tooth problem, BUT i only like my sweetness in my sweets. i hate sweetness in my beverages and in my regular food/meals. sugary cereals, much to my kids dismay, are forbidden here! i'm the meany mom!!!

    I pretty much never met a cereal I didn't like. Right now my faves are Honey Bunches of Oats, Oatmeal Squares, Special K Choclatey Delight, and any kind of Cherrios.

    I totally agree with Ashley, love love cereal...but I don't eat much of it anymore, low carbs, you know. But I do love cheerios and oatmeal squares, and I love hot oatmeal, something I never would have eaten as a kid.

    raisin bran and chocolate mini wheat little bites are our faves here (the choc. mini wheats are good dry as a snack or with milk!)

    I loved cereal but yes, between the sugar and the carbs I can't eat it anymore. My all time favorites will always be:

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honey Bunches of Oats, Captain Crunch, and Honey Nut Cheerios. (Team Cheerios were good, too!)

    I love cereal and eat it almost every morning! Two of my favorites are Fiber One (no sugar) and Bran Buds. It's a good thing I like them because I am supposed to eat a lot of fiber and both of them have a lot of fiber. I also enjoy plain oatmeal with blueberries.

    I like Special K vanilla almond or honey oats. Or I like Kashi Go Lean crunch or their cinnamon wheat thingies. And I need to have some kind of berries to put in there or it's just not right.

    Not really a big cereal fan, but the only one I have ever eaten is Cheerios. Not the honey cheerios or those other flavors, just plain cheerios.

    Never loved it until recently I discovered this granola from Bakery On Main which is gluten free and delish! I put it in Greek yogurt and love it. Yet not cheap though; one small bag only lasts a week and is $6.99.... :whistle

    I adore cereal and I'm having issues with it right now. I've been eating raisin bran..but honestly why do they sugar coat the rasins? It has 18g of sugar per serving...that's more than the kid's sugary cereals that are out there and yeah I realize a lot of that is the raisins..but it's much lower in sugar to buy bran flakes and raisins and put them together.

    DH loves the original Kashi Go Lean, so I gave a bowl of that a try yesterday and I still can't stand it..lol.

    I also love lucky charms and frosted mini wheats...both of which aren't great for you (which I'm guessing is why they are my favorites).

    DH and DD love overnight oats but I can't stand cold oatmeal (unless it's in a cookie..lol), but I love hot oatmeal and farina.

    I eat raisin bran more than anything because I'm borderline anemic & I like to donate blood. Raisin bran has LOTS of iron! But I also love crunch berries! ;)

    Don't eat cereal anymore but when I did I ate Raisin Bran, Cheerios and Cornflakes. Way back when I didn't care how much sugar I ate, I loved Alphabits and Frosted Flakes. I used to eat that for dinner sometimes with a few pieces of toast. That was many, many years ago :)
