Let me be real with you, I could eat cereal for every meal. It's great any time of day, be it morning, noon, or night. Not only is it a filling, delicious meal, but there are SO MANY WONDERFUL KINDS! If you're feeling fruity, chocolaty, you name it, there's a cereal with that flavor! While trying to pick favorites is seriously hard, I knew there needed to be a list of (what I think) are the best. Since I could talk about cereal all day, so here's my ranking of the classic types of magical goodness.
1. Cinnamon Life
Cinnamon Life is a top tier cereal. It is crunchy, full of the cinnamon flavor, and works with and without milk. Argue all you want, but you won't change my mind.
2. Honey Bunches of Oats
A classic, delicious cereal that makes you feel like you're eating healthy. Tbh, it doesn't really matter to me. I eat it because it tastes so good.
3. Fruity Pebbles/Cocoa Pebbles
Listen, these would be the best, but they get soggy in 0.2 seconds, so you have to be ready when you pour that milk in!
4. Cocoa Puffs
What can I say, I am definitely "cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!" I love chocolate, so you can bet I love eating this one!
5. Captain Crunch
Captain Crunch is one that I like to eat with and without milk. My only criticism: the roof of my mouth is DESTROYED every time I eat it.
6. Frosted Flakes
These were always a go to for me growing up. They're sweet and crunchy and a well-made cereal. Well done, Tony the Tiger, well done.
7. Lucky Charms
Be honest, we eat this for the marshmallows.
8. Froot Loops
I love me some Froot Loops! They are like colorful Cheerios with the taste of Fruity Pebbles.
9. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
These are great because they make the milk taste like cinnamon! Gotta love that!
Ok, let's get one thing straight: Trix was better when the pieces were the shapes and not just the balls. It's fruity and sweet, but kind of boring compared to how it used to be.
11. Cookie Crisp
Because who doesn't want to eat cookies for breakfast? It might not be the best, but it definitely feels like a win for my childhood self, getting to eat dessert for breakfast.
I like Cheerios, both with and without milk. Give me the flavored Cheerios over the plain ones, though.
13. Rice Krispies
Don't get me wrong, I like the rice krispy treats, but this cereal doesn't actually taste good. It's plain, and it gets soggy really quickly. No snap, crackle, or pop is worth it to me.
It's just a plain version of Chex Mix without all the best parts.
15. Corn Pops
I used to eat these a lot when I was a kid, but they actually don't taste that great. They are a little waxy and not very good overall. Would I eat it in an emergency? Sure, but I wouldn't like it.
16. Special K
Listen, I don't eat cereal to lose weight, I eat it for the deliciousness. This is not delicious.
17. Raisin Bran
Don't eat it. Why would you eat it? Just stay away from it.
