Ranking Kellogg’s Cereal

Anyone who knows me knows I have a bit of a cereal problem. I love the stuff. It’s not something we were allowed to have often growing up as it was pricey so it still feels like a special treat. There’s something about the cold milk and the cereal that is just delicious whether it is for breakfast or a snack. I like sugar cereal, healthy cereal, any cereal. You name it. I like it!

This week I got an Kellogg’s Assortment Pack from amazon (it was an add-on item so a great deal). This includes 6 different flavors of cereal, and I thought it would be fun to rank the cereals. I have previously done a list of my top 10 favorite cereals if you want to check that post out.

6. Apple Jacks

There is something about the flavor of Apple Jacks I’ve never loved. It’s not awful but the artificial apple and cinnamon combination is a little weird. Plus I think they need more of the green loops and less of the cinnamon. The ratio is a little off.

5. Rice Krispies

I like a good bowl of rice krispies quite a bit. It is good for more than just cereal treats and the crackle pop is always fun! It only gets 5th spot because it doesn’t have a lot of flavor. I probably prefer cocoa krispies, which are one of my favorite chocolate treats!

4. Froot Loops

Despite them making Toucan Sam a bird with arm instead of wings (disturbing) froot loops is a pretty tasty cereal bite. The flavors might seem muddled but it’s mostly lemon that comes through. I like all the bright colors and it feels slightly naughty to eat! LOL

3. Pops

The Pops cereal is a nice combination of normal and sugary cereals. It’s definitely sweet but not as sweet as Froot Loops. It doesn’t get soggy super fast and it’s very tasty so you can’t go wrong with it.

2. Frosted Flakes

Tony the Tiger is undeniably the best mascot in all of cereals and Frosted Flakes are a classic for a reason. The corn flavor tastes great with the milk and I like to mix in blueberries, which add a tart pop to the sweet flakes.

1. Frosted Mini Wheats

I like pretty much any version of shredded wheat. The larger frosted variety are delicious but these mini versions are also great. I love when the shredded wheat gets absorbed with the milk. It’s like a little pocked of cereal yumminess. These take forever to get soggy and have just the right amount of sweet. Yum!

So there you have it my very controversial cereal ranking. How would you rank these 6 cereals? Let me know in the comments sections

My Favorite Cereal

I thought it would be fun to do something different.  I love cereal.  It wasn’t something we got often growing up, especially sugar cereal.  So I guess like any denied food group I grew a taste for it and I still just love a bowl of cereal.  I don’t think there is a kind of cereal I don’t like.  There’s just something about that combination of cold milk and cereal that always hits the spot for me.  In a spirit of fun I thought I would share with you my favorite cereals.

10.Capn Crunch Crunchberries- If you are going to go off the deep end and pretend you are 5 again this is the cereal to go with. The combination of flavors is delish. Definitely a treat but yummy.

5. Quaker Oak Squares- a brown sugar taste and it doesn’t get soggy very fast

Honey Nut Cheerios- Got to go with name brand on this one.  The generic isn’t nearly as good.  A little bit of sweetness with the oats of cheerioshoney nut cheerios2.  Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds- this would be the perfect cereal if it didn’t get soggy so fast. Got to have the almonds.  The others are no good.  But the combination of the flakes and oat clusters delish!
