Fast forward 25 years. My husband more or less finds the same thing to be true. Whenever he does the grocery shopping he loads up on Raisin Bran (my favorite), buying 4 or 5 boxes because he doesn’t want to ever, ever run out.

Our cafeteria had huge plastic dispensers of lots of types of cereals and I usually went straight for the Cocoa Puffs. When I was feeling especially rebellious (lol) I’d have it with chocolate milk. Talk about a sugar rush…

We don’t buy it often, but when we do, we seem to eat the whole box in one sitting — after dinner or for an after school snack.

I wonder how my kids will react when they move away from home. Do you think we’ve satiated their sugar cereal cravings?

Less waste I guess, but I still shudder at the thought of Frootloop milk with soggy bits and its strange color.

The same babysitter did have other strange food for her charges that I like and eat to this day – namely: mixing warm baked beans with cottage cheese. Mmmm.

My weird cereal thing – I eat it dry without milk. Somehow I imagine it getting soggy, so I have it crunchy. I’m 33 and my mom still says it was a mistake that she let me do that as a kid.

Do you know that many of the cereals we enjoyed as youngsters, are now much higher in sugar?? The companies want to entice the kids and often use tactics such as free prizes (junk mostly). The ads have also increased in this area. I am concerned that kids are eating way way too much sugar and we are still learning of the affects of this!

They have 2 grams of sugar!) and when I left home at age 13 to go to school I just became obsessed with Captain Crunch. Now that is far too sweet for me, but I still love cold cereal (and especially the cereal milk). If there is a box in the house I cannot not eat it. Consequently, there is no cereal in our pantry most of the time!
I had not heard of David Chang’s concoctions…I am going to have to look into them!

We really thought we wanted them, but they were never as great as we thought they were.

Lucky Charms will always remind me of college. Why a bunch of 20-year-olds sat around eating it for breakfast, I have no idea.
