On the heathy side, weighing in at (much) better for you we have:
-Cheerios (Apple Cinnamon are my all time fav type of Cheerios)
On the sugar laden, harkening back to being a child side, we have:
-Captain Crunch (with crunch berries!!!)
-Cinnamon Toast Crunch
-French Toast Crunch
I like a lot of those ones like you described too Licia, the ones from Kellogs and Post, etc that have dried fruits, nuts, and so on in them....there's one in Canada that's maple flavoured, the name escapes me (Alix, help?) but it's awesome!
Going back to the 80's for a moment...Does anyone remember "Strawberry Shortcake cereal" and "Orange Blossom cereal"? (I'm pretty sure they went the ways of other 80's cereal experiments like "Nerds" and "Pac Man" cereals
