Does anyone enjoy cold cereal for breakfast?

Asked by Nomore_lockout (7592points) July 9th, 2021

I don’t mean a steady diet of it, just now in while, as in having a busy day scheduled and no time for a better breakfast?

I’m talking about GOOD cereal like corn flakes, wheaties, bran flakes. As opposed to running to Micky D’s for a breakfast burrito. Gag a maggot.

I enjoy Corn Flakes or Rice Krispies a couple mornings a week.

Great Grains Cranberry Almond Crunch with skim milk for me.

If I were to have it instead of my usual oatmeal, it would have to be Sugar Frosted Flakes. I might also have Apple Jacks.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

Yeah I forgot oatmeal..not a cold cereal but it can hIt the spot at times. I enjoy that as well.

Raisin Bran with cold milk. Excellent.

There is always time for some sausages.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

@ragingloli Not always. You don’t have my grand kiddos and panicky ass boss. LOL

I like granola cereal. Quaker harvest crunch original is my best. Second best is Mountain House blueberry granola and milk.

Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds mixed with Frosted Mini-Wheats, topped with thawed blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and dark cherries and drowned in 1% milk – every morning. Love it! And sometimes for supper, too.

You can just grab one or two from the package, then wolf them down in half a minute.
That is faster than putting cereal in a bowl, then spooning it out.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

Cold or frozen sausage? No thanks. I’d as soon eat stale cornflakes with burned toast and curdled milk.

JLeslie's avatar

Yes, but I prefer cereal in the afternoon.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

Afternoon is fine as well. I’ve had it for supper a few times.

@Nomore_lockout My husband eats cereal for dinner all of the time. I make him lunch almost every day (more like a dinner) and then when he wants to watch his weight he often just has cereal at night.

I eat cereal as dessert sometimes. A sweet cereal in lieu of eating cake or candy. The cereal has little to no cholesterol or fat and still gives a sweet fix if I want one.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

Indeed. More so the Frosted Flakes, or Sugar Pops. Can’t beat ‘em with a stick.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

I want to try the super sugary cereals at least once. Like Cookie Crisp and Flintstones Pebbles. I prefer Frosted Flakes over Corn Flakes.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

About the same except the Frosted Flakes are pre sugared…

@all I just dived into my survival food and had a pouch of “Granola with Milk and Blueberries”. It was good and I saved $60 by not ordering beef and broccoli, and beef fried rice, and half BBQ duck.

Corn Flakes, Honey Smacks & Golden Grahams with whole milk.

filmfann's avatar

Me. Corn Pops, Cocoa Krispies, Shredded Wheat, Cheerios.

I have a bowl of plain oatmeal with milk followed by a banana every morning. I don’t want anything too rich or fatty.

“and no time for a better breakfast?”

Bizarre. This might be a question that is related to the recent ice question. Temperature is apparently far more important to people than I had imagined.

LostInParadise's avatar

I like Grape Nuts with lots of fruit, a dollop of whole milk yogurt along with rice milk.

Yeahright's avatar

@product I think the implication of the question wasn’t so much about the temperature of the food as it was about not having time to cook eggs, pancakes, oat meal, etc. That said, hot food does have a different feeling in your stomach, I think. Sometimes having, say, a salad is not as satisfying and fulfilling as having a serving of hot veggies.

But yeah, upon rereading, the OP implies that a hot breakfast would be a better breakfast.

ragingloli's avatar

Honestly, I do not think that cereal even counts as breakfast. They are barely a snack.
You will be hungry again in less than an hour.

Does anyone enjoy cold cereal for breakfast?
– Yes. YOU do.
– Clearly, many other people do too.
– I do too.
– So why would you title your question this way?

I’m talking about GOOD cereal like corn flakes, wheaties, bran flakes.
– Since I learned about GMO’s and glysophate that remains in GMO food, not to mention the industry-leveraged disinformation, scientific dishonesty, and political campaigns to avoid accurate GMO labeling, since many years ago, I have avoided corporate GMO food as much as possible. I get Trader Joe cereal.

A cold banana also works for my breakfast.

Yeahright's avatar

@ragingloli I think granola and muesli can be very fulfilling for breakfast (even more so if you add fresh fruit to it) and can keep you feel full until lunch.

Yeahright's avatar

@Zaku You made me laugh! ;)

My Granddaughter is Koo Koo for Coco puffs.
She wanted cereal at my house. All I had was Cheerios. She was sad. I poured Hersey’s chocolate syrup in her Cheerios.
She was happy.

I often have Branflakes for a late night snack, but not for breakfast.

jca2's avatar

I usually don’t eat cereal for breakfast because I think of it as a bowl of carbs. If there’s nothing else, or I’m on vacation and not so many choices are available, then yes. Otherwise, no.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Kind of wish I’d picked up that variety pack I saw at the store. It reminds me of vacations when I was a kid.

Nomore_lockout's avatar

Love those variety packs…I could eat three or four boxes in one sitting.

tedibear's avatar

I love Cheerios, unfortunately, Cheerios no longer love me. Cheerios and oatmeal give me terrible heartburn.

JLeslie's avatar

When I was a very little girl we would put sugar in our cheerios to sweeten it. The bottom of the milk was wet sugar. Each spoonful we tried to have some mil, some sugar, and some cheerios. I think probably that had more sugar than simply eating a sugar coated cereal.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I remember those days @JLeslie!

smudges's avatar

Me too! @JLeslie & @Dutchess_III I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve done it as an adult, also.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I cut out most sugar in my late 20s so I don’t do it any more.

JLeslie's avatar

I naturally desire less sugar now. When I eat a lot of “sugar” I feel like I am over sugared, although I doubt a blood test would show that, I don’t know. When I have too much “sugar” my triglycerides go up and I have to admit my A1C could be better. I put sugar in quotes because I mean anything that turns to sugar, all carbs, fruit, etc. Although, I know there are people who say just cutting refined sugar, like table sugar, made a huge difference for them, which I think maybe is what @Dutchess_III is talking about.

I haven’t added sugar to Cheerios in forever. Maybe the last time was when I was 8 years old.

Used to have Special K cereal as they had dried fruit in it until I read that it had loads of sugar added ( on the ingredients) of which made me hunger for that cereal of which was what sugar doesn’t fill but and hour or two after one craves it again.
I stopped eating cereals altogether and also cut down considerably the sweets ( chocolate bar, icecream ).
Lost a bit of weight by eating yougart, fruit and healthy choices now.

Dutchess_III's avatar

@JLeslie cutting out sugar didn’t make a huge difference. I changed my eating habits in a myriad of ways. Added up they made a huge differenc
