expatgirl: Kids here get a free banana when grocery shopping and in some store, they get a fruit or raisins if they "help" the parent out while shopping with own cart.

I am going in to do something shopping tomorrow, I take a picture of the cereal section at my my favorite supermarket.

As an older child, right up until current time, I guess my favorite would be Grape-Nuts Flakes. Not Grape-Nuts, but Grape Nuts Flakes. Grape-Nuts are annoying. You pour on milk, take a spoonful, add more milk, take antoher spoonful, add more milk, and on and on, and the crunching will give you a headache. In fact, I am having Grape-Nuts Flakes for breakfast this very morning.

Grape Nuts Flakes are substantial, crunchy, and have a unique flavor that no other cold cereal has. Wheaties would be the runner up I guess. All the other cold cereals, with or without sugar, are like Krispy Kreme doughnuts; they have no substance. I can eat half a dozen Krispy Kremes and not get full and I can eat several bowls of Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Sugar Crisp, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, etc. and never get full.

I too liked GNFlakes. My brother liked GN's. Love the way you explain it - it's perfectly true!
Even to the filling substance, other than Shredded Wheat, maybe that's why I liked them. When you finished your bowl you were good, you didn't look at the clock to see if you had time for another bowl.

Coming from Cedar Rapids I ate a lot of oatmeal and still eat it frequently. I did like GrapeNuts, Shredded Wheat, Cream of Wheat, and Cheerios.

That's because they were eating all the potatoes your daughter doesn't want! I just can't stop giggling over that one Charlie.

My fondest early memory was Quisp, followed by Raisin Bran, then Fruit Loops.

Quisp had a time factor. You put it in milk just long enough to cause thr outer sugar layer to become gooey, but it was still crisp inside.

Does anyone remember a cereal that was a small square of a wheat lattice with a bit of raisin inside? I used to love those, with or without milk.

When you have the munchies , dry, sweetened cereal is a wonderful thing.

I remember gnawing on frozen fruit pies 'cause that's all my buddy had in his basement fridge that was sweet.
Geez, that was almost 40 years ago. Funny how you remember things.

I like the meusli type cereals with chopped dates and other fruits. My bolld sugar doesn't care for them though. I enjoy Shredded wheat (large biscuit), grape nuts, raisin bran, cooked barley cerials, steel-cut oatmeal, regular oatmeal (not instant), and farina. I'm not crazy about sweetened cerials, though as I mentioned previously in this thread, I did like Life, and still do. But I won't eat it because of the extra carbs.
