Why I Am A Cereal-Killer


And if you enjoy cereal, you probably are too. Do you find yourself grabbing handfuls of your favorite cereal or pouring yourself a bowl at all times of the day? If so, don't worry you're not actually a serial cereal-killer, more like a cereal addict! Some may say I have a slight addiction. I could eat cereal any time of the day with or without milk! I'm not discriminatory: I eat all types of cereal. I like the healthy variety and I enjoy the more sugary ones as well. I'm not really sure what the appeal of cereal is. I love the crunch, the taste, and the many varieties available. If I had to live on only cereal, I'd be totally fine! Below I have created a list of things that you can use cereal for and a list of cereals that are no longer available! Leave a comment and let me know what your favorite cereal is. My favorite is Waffle Crisp!

Things Cereal is good for:

  •   Eating. This should be pretty obvious, if you have taste buds and like to eat things, you should probably eat some cereal.
  •   Snacking. Because eating cereal for one meal is never enough. You should always have a baggy full of your favorite cereal on hand. You'll never know when you'll need it to calm down a hangry (hungry/angry) co-worker or child. It might also prevent those embarrassing stomach noises your tummy makes when you're hungry.
  •   Breakfasting. We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Cereal can be a part of the meal that starts your day off right.
  •   Crafting. Who hasn't made a Fruit Loop necklace before? Not only is it pretty fashionable it can be eaten later if needed. Seriously though I'm sure Pinterest has some great cereal art ideas.
  •   Cooking. Rice Krispie Treats...no further proof is needed, but I'll provide some for you anyway! You can use cereal in a variety of different recipes. Crush it up and use it as a coating.
  •   Topping. Cereal can be used as a topping on everything from ice cream to yogurt. The texture adds a nice little crunch!

I'm sure there are other great uses for cereal, but that's all I can think of right now. If I don't stop thinking of things, I'll have to stop writing and go get a bowl of cereal! Now it's time to move onto the cereals that we have lost. It's a real shame; there are some on this list that I never even got to try.
