    I don't eat cereal anymore but I miss it. I loved Cocoa Krispies...chocolate milk to drink when you're done. I liked Frosted Flakes, Trix, Fruit Loops, Apple Jacks, Lucky Charms. I remember the Quisp vs Quake battle. When I was pregnant, cereal was my 3 am go-to.

    I remember when Sugar Pops became Corn Pops, Sugar Frosted Flakes became Frosted Flakes, and Super Sugar Crisp became Golden Crisp, among others. They didn't take the sugar out of the cereals, they just took it out of the name. Sugar Crisp/Golden Crisp was over 50% sugar by weight.

    I never liked the sugary cereals even as a kid and I never put sugar on cereal. Cheerios, Chex, and Corn Flakes all taste fine just by themselves.

    Last year some people pitched a milk that tastes like the milk left in the bottom of a cereal bowl on Shark Tank. They didn't get a deal but they had been getting good sales in the stores they had it in.

    I like Cheerios and Wheat Chex with just a small amount of sugar but I have always thought that corn flakes were too bland even with sugar.

    I like eating Grape Nuts straight out of the box, no milk. A good crunchy snack.

    I can probably use cinnamon sugar in a lid (like with a margarita) to rim the glass. Thanks!

    You underestimate the power of hand picked flowers. Hand pick em and you can still roll heavy at the sizzler.
