Which ones bring back memories? Likes, dislikes? Favorite toys inside the box?

Anyone remember Quisp?

I have a box of Quisp in the cabinet as we speak. Not quite the taste sensation that I remember, but the memories are so sweet...

My favorite cereal is probably granola. I like making my own. Also Golden Grahams are excellent.

Does anyone remember the werewolf cereal? There was Count Chocula, Frankenberry, Booberry, and then there was a short-lived werewolf one. Does anyone remember its name? Another childhood fave was "Cookie Crisp". Though I don't eat much cereal today (I can't believe the prices!) some of my favorites are Golden Grahams, Corn Chex, and Kix. I prefer homemade granola, when I get my butt in gear and make it. Just a little sprinkled over yogurt.

Crispy Critters. They made a come-back a few years ago, but their effect on modern language has stayed around longer than anyone would have imagined.
In restaurant terms "Crispy critter" means overbaked.

Cold cereals - Cornflakes, Shredded Wheat, Granola. There is a ginger granola that Trader Joe's sells which is very good. I've never made my own. Maybe I will this weekend.
Hot cereals - Oatmeal (real porridge if I can get it.)
I like clean simple tastes not loaded with sugar.

Cranberry Almond Crunch with a bit of brand buds.

As a kid we were not permitted to eat cereals like frosted flakes or corn pop. They were a special treat we would have at Christmas or Easter.

I still have to have Cocoa Pebbles once in while, faves are Honey Nut Cheerios, Crispix and Golden Grahams.

Best prizes were the ones you had to save box tops for and mail off the coupon and maybe 50cents. THen the anticipation of waiting for it to show in the mail!

I don't eat it any more, but my favorite is oatmeal: regular oats combined with cinnamon, raisins and walnuts, a little boiling water poured over just to cover, then nuked uncovered for 1.5 minutes. Toss a bit of (gasp) sugar on top and enjoy! Tastes like an oatmeal cookie, a bit chewy.

Current favorite: oatmeal the way only my husband makes it: very dry, chunky, and chewy, not at all gooey or slimy (well, I'm sorry, but sometimes it can be...)
Childhood favorites: Kix, or as a rare treat, Sugar Pops. Rice Krispies and Cheerios, both of which now taste way too salty. Another rare treat, Coco Krispies.

Yeah, I remember Maypo, but I'd rather not.

I'n not sure why, but the lucky charms jingle almost took me out. Every time I heard it my blood boiled. Must of been something subliminal sp?.
Only twice something like this has happened, the second is happening now with this outback guy who found ten bucks in his jeans, this is probably a local thing but I've heard is so much I want to shove that 10 dollar bill you know.:D

Fruit Brute was the werewolf cereal. I liked BooBerry - especially that porkpie hat he wore - made him look like Frank Sinatra.

I was a strange child.

I just made some of my favorite breakfast porridge, something I grew up with in India. It's made with toasted farina, salt, and water or milk. Butter is optional. The dry farina is toasted in a pan on the stove top, then sprinkled into rapidly boiling salted water. It's simmered about 10 minutes, and then you add milk and sugar. Yum :^)

I like the Kashi line of cereals these days. When I was a kid, I liked Frosted Wheat and Frosted Flakes.

For hot cereal, I like a good steel cut oatmeal.
