Who hates a "soggy" bowl of cereal in milk?

Asked by john65pennington (29070 points ) May 8th, 2011

My bowl of Wheaties are great for about 3–4 minutes in the bowl with milk on top. Then, they become limp, if you know what I mean.
Question: is there not a cereal out there that will stay crunchy in a bowl of milk for longer than 4 minutes?

Grape Nuts will stay crunchy, but who wants to be eating hard little pebbles? Ouch !

My solution to the problem for myself is to pour all the milk into the bowl and then just add my cereal in smaller amounts as I’m eating it, roughly a handful at a time.

Sounds a little odd but it works for me. Cinnamon Toast Crunch SHOULD be crunchy not soggy.

I love Grape Nuts… :\
I just use less milk. I hardly use any milk at all in my cereal, and I just keep mixing it up as I eat it. I may only put a few tablespoons of liquid in my bowl. My cereal is never soggy.

I’m sure you cant get these, they are the supermarkets own brand for a Spanish supermarket. They are called “Choco-Rock”. An appropriate name considering they are just as hard as a rock. You need to soak them for a good 10 minutes, dunking them with your spoon so they dont shatter your teeth. They are not so enjoyable.

I hate soggy cereal and if I am in the mood for a cereal that gets soggy in milk I tend to just put a tiny bit in a time eat it and then make more so it doesn’t get soggy. Otherwise I won’t eat it once it gets soggy.

If you keep expecting cereal to stay crunchy you will be a man of constant sorrow
That would be sad,John. :(

Grape-Nuts stay crunchy, though, as my grandmother used to say, it’s like eating a bowl of rocks.

Soggy cereal is the devils work.

Substitute yogurt for milk. Once you try it, cereal in milk just seems wrong.

I’m with you there John, I despise soggy cereal. When I eat cereal, I always wolf them down really fast so they don’t have time to get all soggy. I can’t stand it lol, especially stuff like Corn Flakes.

I love boring cereal, like grapenuts they are wicked hard tho. I hate milk, but I’d venture to guess that Granola-like cereals must stay nonsoggy. Honey bunches of oats? Cheerios? Smart Start?

Soggy cereal….blech! Actually, I’m one of those quirky people who prefer eating cereal dry. Those rare times when I do add milk, I don’t add very much. Just enough to moisten it a bit.

I love soggy cereal. I put the milk on, then stir to make sure it’s all covered, then wait 10 or 15 minutes until it turns to mush. I usually put it in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up.
