What is the ultimate cereal?

Asked by reacting_acid (1181points) November 23rd, 2009

I think I need to eat more cereal, or at least healthier cereal. What, in your opinion, is the best tasting cereal that is also healthy? Thanks for your answers in advance!

Quaker natural granola – Honey, Raisins, and Oats

Hmm…I don’t know. Total is very healthy, but it tastes like metal.

Special K with strawberries is pretty good. A bit more flavor than plain Special K, but still a lot of vitamins and minerals.

Frosted Mini Wheats.

Honey Bunches of Oats Cinnamon.

Ok I’m pretty sure this isn’t the healthiest but it is the best tasting, in my opinion, EnviroKid’s Organic Peanut Butter Panda Puffs. But if you what something healthy, which is hard to find in cereals, then I would try Organic Sweetened Buckwheat Flakes or just some plain granola cereal.

Grape Nuts taste good, are healthy and stay crunchy in milk. Bonus.
I love Grape Nuts.

Not that I eat healthy cereal. I usually chow on Sugar Cubes in Milk

Don’t forget that you can add fruit to most cereals for extra healthiness and taste.
I like to use sliced banana.

I usually eat hot cereal. I like oatmeal or malt-o-meal with fruit preserves and cinnamon stirred in. But if you mean cold cereal, Mother’s Peanut Butter Bumpers with chocolate milk are the bomb! (Don’t let the “natural” part fool you into thinking it tastes bad.)

Of course, since cereals keep being made and sold, we can’t possibly know what the Ultimate one will be. Probably not in our lifetime, at least.

Heck with healthy. The ultimate cereal is Lucky Charms.

Steel-cut oats, for health reasons, because they are delicious, because, though they take a long time to cook they are also easy to prepare, and because they can be very nicely enhanced by making them with milk, or by adding honey, or brown sugar, or raisins, or dried cranberries, etc., etc.

@jamielynn2328 I eat too much of that already though! Thus, the quest for healthy cereal :)

@pdworkin I think I have a dusty old container of those buried in my cupboard. I think I put coconut and almonds in it. It was amazing!

Bachelor chow.

I’m not sure how healthy it is, but I’m cuckoo for cocoa puffs!

avvooooooo's avatar

@jamielynn2328 Even that’s not that unhealthy. I love Fruity Pebbles and Cap’n Crunch and their calories and fat are surprisingly low.

Quaker Oat Squares. They’re really good and good for you. I also like Golden Grahams if I’m in a particularly junky mood. They’re kind of high in sugar, but made with whole grain!

Cheerios, they serve 3 purposes. They are great with milk and don’t need sugar but they are just as good for snacking while working (no sticky, greasy or orange residue to get on papers or keyboards. It is also a good baby occupyier, afterwards you just have to do a quick wipe and sweep, not a bath and mop the floor.

Suicide cereal. A little of every kind you’ve got.

OH MAN. Cracklin’ Oat Bran. No one has ever heard of it, but it is the frigging mother of all cereals. If it weren’t $4 for one tiny box I’d live off of it.

Oat Meal with fruit on top. No sugar.

The best cereal I’ve ever tried is Kellogg’s Fruit Harvest Cereal, Strawberry Blueberry. It is a rice and whole-grain wheat cereal that does not get soggy sitting in milk for even 15 minutes, includes real, delicious, dried sliced strawberries and whole blueberries and contains 0 grams of fat. I have it shipped regularly to my door via’s “Subscribe and Save” program and enjoy it frequently. See ya…..Gary/wtf

Quaker Oatmeal Squares. Both flavors are awesome, but I prefer the cinnamon.

Also, Kashi makes delicious cereal.

augustlan's avatar

Kashi Go Lean Crunch is pretty darn good.

i love cinnamon toast crunch. so much sugar but it’s sooo good!

laureth's avatar

@fireinthepriory – I’ve heard of it – and yes, it’s yummy!

@TimTom Welcome to Fluther. Lurve

fireinthepriory's avatar

@laureth Woo!! I’m not the only one! My mom used to buy it for us only on vacations, which is probably what bred part of my love for it. :)

aprilsimnel's avatar

I thought the ultimate cereal was Colon Blow. Or maybe Super Colon Blow.

Raisin Nut Bran… mmmmm
