Adam’s Top 10 Cereals of All-Time
It’s been awhile GrubGrade fans, and for this I apologize. Alas, my “real” job as a full-time student and editor of a major college newspaper has kept me busy this fall, and unable to share with you my gastronomic adventures. Nevertheless, it a recent fit of writing nostalgia, I found the time to muse on the top 10 cereals of all time. And yes, I’m talking ALL TIME people. Here’s a sneak peak:
6) Golden Grahams: It may not be the sexiest of kid’s cereals, but dag-nabbit, that honey glaze gets me every time. Is it just me, or is this one of the best cereals at absorbing milk? Loses points for lack of an endorsement by a cartoon character, but will always stand out due to lack of cheap imitators.
5) Honey Bunches of Oats (Original): The strong notes of brown sugar and barley lend a great complexity and depth of flavor to this cereal, which scores points for it’s status as one of the few “acceptable” grown-up choices which also doesn’t completely suck.
4) Frosted Mini-Wheats Little Bites (Chocolate): Fiber-schmiber. The folks at Kellogg’s don’t have to give me health claims to get me to buy this stuff. Few chocolate cereals pack the double whammy of cocoa flavor and actual cocoa butter, but this one does. The little bites are embedded with a rich sugar glaze and small chocolate chips. A great addition to trail mix for you DIY types, but also curiously addicting in milk.
