    You're never too old to eat what you want, unless what you want to eat is literally baby food (barring a tragic accident rendering you ill equipped to masticate solid food of course). You're also never too old to assert your preferences and refuse to let others assail them based on their own irrational set of idiosyncrasies.

    Cereal with fruit and berries is soooooooo good. My favorite topping is raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries.

    That is like putting A-1 on your filet mignon. Perhaps your lesser cereals, such as Special K or Cracklin' Oat Bran, could benefit from added fruits. But not your top of the line cereals, such as Fruity Pebbles or Cookie Crisp.

    I have to side with Linca. Chucking in bits of fruit into a bowl of Sugar Crisp or Cinnamon Toast Crunch would be gilding the lily, plain and simple.

    And what if you put bananas in your Super Golden Crisp? Would it still have the crunch with punch? Of course the individual grains would be crunchy, but the overall effect of eating the cereal would be a different matter entirely. There are some people who do not take these sorts of things into account, but maybe they should.

    One of the first things I did as when I moved out was I went and bought a box of Lucky Charms because my parents (mom in particular) refused to buy sugary stuff, partly due to price. I had two bowls and then was like, "I've got a whole box of this shit left?"

    So disappointed.

    If you had chosen something from the Pebbles family of cereals, you would not have been disappointed. I suggest that you go out and get a box after work tonight.

    @mordecai: I have to let Grape Nuts sit in the milk for 20 minutes before I can even think of eating them! It's like a box of BBs.

    When they go on sale--HOLLA!



    LC was always the holy grail or, dare I say it--the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow--as it were so I got that. I've liked the pebbles but was going for the big time.

    You know, sometimes in life you've just gotta shoot for the moon. Even when--nay, especially when--you are not assured of success. Now I am inspired; I just might do something great today.

    The only cereal I think would benefit with added fruits/berries would probably be Rice Krispies.

    I used to love rice krispies treats cereal. It was so sugary! Tried to find it in a couple different grocery stores recently and I don't think they make it any more.

    I don't like the sugary cereal so the fruit does enhance it.

    My serious feeling about this is that the texture of the fruit--no matter which fruit it is--conflicts too much with the texture of the cereal. I don't know why that bothers me, but it does.

    Yes. Crunch and mush do not go well together.

    Breakfast--corn flakes con banana.

    The key to a great bowl of cereal is the milk has to be super super cold, no matter the weather.
