    Here are the ones we eat at our house:

    Weetabix
    Shredded Wheat
    Bran Flakes
    Oatmeal

    My 3 year old just loves Weetabix.

    Breakfast cereal? I don't eat no breakfast cereal!

    Well, not out of a box. I will occasionally have a bowl of steel cut oatmeal, but my breakfast usually consists of leftovers from last night. Never could stomach "breakfast food" as such.

    DH loves Uncle Sam cereal, though, so I am always looking for a sale on that!

    oatmeal or Malt-o-Meal. REally don't like any kinds of cold cereal and all overpriced even with coupons. I was raised on hot cereal every morning. DEE

    I like the peanut butter cookie cereal I make (although I made a gingerbread one this morning that ranks a close second). It's a hot cereal made form scratch, I'm not sure if that is what you are asking about or you mean the box stuff. As far a box stuff we do Aldi's Rasin Bran every so often for a change.

    I haven't eaten dry cereal in at least 20 years.

    Back when, Grape Nuts and Life were OK.

    I eat it more for supper than breakfast, but it's a mixture of raisin bran (about 50%), granola (about about 40%), and bran buds (about 10% of the mix, but very, very, very high in fiber). I'll throw bananas or strawberries on top if I have them.

    Difficult decision...favorite cold commerical boxed is probably Rice Krispies with sliced bananna. Favorite hot cereal is oatmeal made with half-half, will settle for milk if I'm feeling health conscious.

    I buy about 6 boxes of cold cereal a a month. Whatever is cheapest. That lasts for about 3 breakfasts...

    while they enjoy thier cereal, I usually eat a grilled jalapeno cheese on rye with extra jalapenos added. I guess I worked too many night shifts to enjoy breakfast..

    But basically, I cook breakfast...rarely have any kind of cereal...

    Me: Homemade Granola or Shredded Wheat
    BF: Total or Uncle Sam cereal
    Both: LOVE our chicken's eggs, and this is our preferred breakfast when we have the time to cook one. Quite often, though, it's just a bowl of cereal as we run out the door! :rolleyes:

    I'm no cereal snob. It's a treat for me! I eat it as a snack sometimes in the afternoon or evening too.

    My favorites are Honey Nut Cheerios and Frosted Mini-Wheats (usually store brand).
    DH prefers Total.
    DD's favorite is Honey Bunches of Oats.
    DS likes Captain Crunch! (we don't get this box of sugar and coloring very often!)

    Fruity Pebbles cut with Chex, Cap'n Crunch cut with Kix, or Reese's Pieces cut with Kix. Children about the same but no dilution.

    Raisin Bran with extra sugar on top. Fill it with milk to the top then drink the sweet milk after all that bran goodness!
