When I was little, sugared cereal , the type you remember had to be made less sweet for the Swedish market or they didnt pass as breakfast, yeah stricter sugar laws then then now. Thank you EU for that. ;). No high coloured cereal either since we had a ban on azo colouring back then and also some flavourings and preservatives. Yes, that too had to change with EU and now they are changing back to our old rules.

Anyway, so the cereal we had was either popped rice , taste like Styrofoam or generic cornflakes ( Kellogg was too expensive) or weird non sweetened müsli.

So I had porridge most mornings, oats, barely or rye with jam and milk but ones or twice a year I would get a box of Smacks or Captain Crunch, that was my grand aunts idea of spoiling us, that and unlimited candy and cookies for 1 week.

Or I had fil, a soured milk more like butter milk then yogurt with fruits and berries in the summer.

Frosted Flakes!

The day before payday cereal was boiled white rice topped with brown sugar, cinnamon and butter or a little milk!

My aunt told me that leftover rice fixed that way was my uncle's favorite breakfast.

I used to love the dessert cereals Count Chocula (chocolate milk at the end!), Fruity Pebbles, Frosted Flakes. Sometimes Rice Krispies with lots of sugar.

I haven't had cereal in years. My mom thinks that that's weird :crazy:

I loved puffa puffa wheat it had a sort of Hawaiian picture on the box - puffed wheat with honey coating. They disappeared and honey smacks appeared. My aunt always had puffa wheat and served it with a little can of juice either "AM" or "PM" on the side. They also disappeared.

Next favorite was shredded wheat "pillows" LOL I still like them with a maple syrup drizzle and milk hot or cold.

Next wheat or corn Chex.

After that was PLAIN - rice crispies, cheerios and kix cereals.

Oatmeal, farina and wheatina were winter cereals - mom would add brown sugar, raisins, butter and maple flavoring (syrup if she had it) to the pot. Served with a splash of milk over it.

Porridge/porage (depending on where you come from in the UK. Oatmeal, I think, in the USA).

As someone said I mean the real McCoy not the packets that go in the microwave. Preferably served with Tate & Lyle golden syrup (or honey at a pinch if I've run out.)

It's still my favourite, although I like Dorset Muesli too and All Bran. Love the taste of this and it makes a lovely sticky tea bread (cake).
