    I'm a Fruity Pebbles guy myself, but I have to admit that this is the greatest cereal commercial of all time, especially the little tune at the end. It is smoov.

    ^ I'm not really a fan of Fruity Pebbles as I never liked the way they coloured the milk. I do like Cocoa Pebbles though.

    Did you ever try Cupcake Pebbles? Now that's a quality extension of the Pebbles brand, I don't care what anyone says. Don't even get me started on Pebbles Boulders, though. Just a real disappointment.

    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.

    any cereal w/ bananas and strawberries if available.

    i just never get a chance to wake up in time for a bowl. i do enjoy it as a midnight snack though. almond or rice milk only

    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.
