Important Stuff Folks

Based on the title of this post I am sure you thought I was going to discuss the oil spill, immigration laws in Arizona or the war in the Middle East.  But that's not what's on my mind today.  Nope today I am going to discuss cereal - namely kid's cereal.  I love it - so much in fact that we always have a nice variety in our pantry (it helps that I have a walk in pantry and can dedicate a nice size shelf to breakfast food).  Currently we have the following in stock at our house - Apple Jacks, Honey Bunches of Oats, Honey Nut Cheerios, Honeycombs and my all time favorite:

Yes I love Fruity Pebbles.  I have been known to eat a bowl (or two but who's counting) for dessert (Chatty even requested a bowl for dessert too on occasion).  Actually I tend to eat it more for dessert or a snack than breakfast - weird I know.  Needless to say I was super excited when I saw Fruity Pebbles were $1 a box at the grocery store last Saturday.  I picked up two boxes and seriously debated buying up to the limit of 4, but refrained (although the sale goes through today so I still have time..).  I seriously love kids cereal - I haven't met many I don't like.  My other all time favorites besides Fruity Pebbles are Apple Jacks, Lucky Charms, Golden Grahams, Crackling Oat Bran (OK not really a kid cereal), Captain Crunch, Frosted Flakes ... and the list goes on and on.  One thing I don't like - generic store brand cereal (I know name brand cereal isn't cheap so I wait until it is on sale and/or I have a coupon)! Seriously if it isn't Kellogg's, Post, General Mills, Quaker, etc. it isn't going in my grocery cart.  I am a cereal snob! 

What cereals do y'all like?  Am I the only 30 something mom who eats the cereal she buys for her kids?

I am a cereal addict too! My all-time favorite is Golden Grahams, but I will honestly eat almost any kind of cereal...Cheerios, Froot Loops, Honeycombs, Special K, Cocoa Pebbles, I could go on and on!

"Kids" cereals are for everyone! :)

we eat it for dinner all the time, in fact i had lucky charms for my snack just now (dry). we love LC or cinnamon toast crunch lately. i stopped buying it b/c i was eating the whole box. Connor usually picks based on the box...right now shrek has been on some cereals so we eat those, no matter what!

I used to be a serious cereal addict. I love them all too. Fruity Pebbles are one of my favorites too! And Cocoa Pebbles because then you can drink the chocolate milk. Mmmmm!! I love Apple Jacks and Captain Crunch too. Without the berries.

Mind you - I haven't had any of these since college. My favorite cereal over the past few years was Smart Start with Antioxidants. Love it!! It has little granola clusters in it too. Delish. I also love Crispix with banana cut up in it.

Now I'm craving cereal. Thanks a lot.

I loooove Froot Loops! It's kind of sad how much I love them. I also like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but I'm not guaranteed to have that on hand at all times.

Sara - Mr. ESPN loves Smart Start too and Dee - I like Kashi when I am feeling healthy - my aunt introduced me to it. I love the big crunchy clusters. Basically I just really like cereal. Last night Chatty and I shared a BIG bowl of Fruity Pebbles (end of the first box) for dessert. Mr. ESPN commented that he was surprised I only bought 2 boxes!

I love them all, but have been not eating nearly as much as I used to. Low carb crap diet. Lame.
