When someone thinks of cereal, how the iconic tiger labeled box doesn't pop into one's head almost immediately is beyond me. The sweet frosting covering the crispy corn flakes is like the perfect marriage of sweet and crispy. The only way I anyone could make a similar combination of the two would be to directly wired ones mouth to some type of electrodes which simulate Frosted Flakes. This would probably take longer to set up than to actually just eat Frosted Flakes.
That being said, why would anyone ever want to try any cereal that’s not Frosted Flakes? If you don’t what a cereal that’s crispy, you should probably be eating oatmeal with the rest of the denture wearers. If you don’t want a cereal that’s sweet, you should probably be eating a toasted bread crumbs in a bowl of milk. Sounds delightful!
Perhaps your thinking some other cereal would provide another equally pleasant experience. You’d be wrong. Wheat and Rice based cereals get soggy far too fast. So all you’re really left with is corn. Yes, we know there are some of you out there that think cereal can be made from other types of grain that most people have never heard of, so, it must be good. But when it comes to food, the reason most people have never of it is because it sucks. The same reasoning behind spotted dick is not popular here in the United States. It’s horrid. To the point that I wonder if the people in the UK actually like it or they’re just making it as an excuse to say the name. End digression. As I was saying, you’re really only left corn.
Let’s suppose you want to make a cereal and your smart enough to use corn, but, you’re clueless on what style or shape. One idea to try could be the puffed/popped shape. If that’s the case, you probably like popcorn. And you have to make it sweet. So you’re going to have to make something like caramel or kettle corn. And you’re going to take this pour it in a bowl and add milk? If that’s a good idea, then, I suppose you’d also like the texture and taste of sugar coded Styrofoam. Aside from the possible poisonous side effects, I’m pretty sure it would amount to the same thing. If a cereal maker does figure out how to make edible Styrofoam he’s going to make a fortune off you.
Let’s face it, there are very few things in this life that a simple and great. And we as human being should be grateful that we have been lucky enough to find them. Of this short list in our long history, Frosted Flakes is among the top.
That would be starvation station around here.
vegemite rocks......guess you just gotta be here to know it, you have a version of it...marmite or promite or something similar...but the taste is totally different to ours......ours is betta.
my cerial: cornflakes with a ton of milo on the top.........yep, no lie.
but mostly now...when i can afford milk............. all bran.
Sounds good w/raisins but if I had a half hour it would be a pound of bacon and a half dozen eggs for me. And big glass of Ovaltine made with whole milk.

I tried but it makes a big mess and wont hold much cereal.
A spoon works much better!
One of my favorites,DB.
Actually I don't eat cereals for breakfast. More of a bacon, eggs and toast (+cholesterol) kind of guy.
All Time Best!!!
In Staffordshire crusts of bread were scalded with hot water to soften them. After draining, a little warm milk or tea was added, also a knob of butter and a sprinkling of sugar if available. This bread and milk was called 'milk pobs'. Milk pobs and a cup of tea was breakfast for many workers during the 19th and early 20th century, especially workers in the pottery industry and likely the basis for today's bread and butter pudding.
and a certain little boy at grandma's house ...several hundred times.
Frosted Flakes > Fruit Loops > Cap'n Crunch > everything else.
That is all.
...A man's gotta have his milo!
Crunchy chocolatey breakfast. [yum]
I LOVE fruit loops, but Muesli rocks
Tailsgirl like to eat Milo out of the tin Erk
Hot buttered raisin bread toasted dipped in milo (all milk) or milky tea.
Here full Irish - bacon, sausage, egg, tomatoes, beans
In Oz - fresh fruit - pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon, green melon
Or Kellogs Country Store soaked overnight in OJ with fresh plain yoghurt and milk on top with a banana.
Do you remember Activite? man that was gross, long sprinkle-like thing's, as A chocolate DRINK! that crap NEVER desolved, EVER
Yep Aktavite - it was chemist crap tasted of gritty vitamins in poor choccy flavour, even ovaltine bit better than it. Milo rules especially on top of vanilla ice-cream swimming in Baileys - decadence !!
I loved the Rawleighs travelling salesmen of my kid period - did an ice-cream essence for milk - heavenly, oh and blue heaven flavour for malts was great too.
It was indeed, grit.. and something else that RYTHMES with grit
Ovaltine.. yeah, it was passable, compared to Activite, and Quick, that was ok, but Milo definately tops all
Tailsgirl loves Baileys
Baileys dearer here than in Oz but we get better flavours apart from Original
Orange - choc ..... Jaffa........ Just Awesome F'ing Flavour of Australia
Quik was OK if you added Nestle Malted Milk powder to it too, banana and strawberry flavours too.
Always reminded me of Quink ink from school dip in pens...........
That many Bailey's flavours!!!!
I've got about a half a bottle of the original left in my cupboard, it's probably the only alcohol[ic] drink, that actually taste's any good.. AND Tia Maria
Fuzzy, it's a blackish spread for toast and stuff, yeast extracts, there's also Marmite, and Promite
I don't wanna wake up gay in the morning or any time of the day.
Maybe I am Lesbyterian coz she looks hot.
