I never realized how sweet the stuff actually is. These days, my go-to cereal is Honey Bunches of GMOats.

Once in a long while (5 years or more?) I'll eat a box of Captain Crunch. Funny, I've no interest or craving for it at all, then one day I'll just have to have some. It's like a virus-craving that sits dormant 99.9% of the time.

It's good but if I am going the sugar cereal route it's usually fruit loops

I couldn't stand crunch berries or PB. And triple kang'd on the torn palate. Just give me my Golden Grahms for midnight snack type cereal.

Peanut Butter Captain Crunch was my favorite bad cereal...I would eat it until the roof of my mouth felt like it would bleed. :lol:

I recall the roof of the mouth issue too.  It would get me more often than burning it with hot pizza.

 

It was also the secret ingredient to my mom's turkey stuffing.  I've had many a good stuffing, but not one that tasted like I used to remember.

Was never a big Cap'n Crunch fan.  Lucky Charms & Apple Jacks were my favorites.

 

Bonus:  No roof of mouth carnage!

Cap'n Crunch was a go to, along with Honeycomb.

When I was WAY old.... ya know 17, in college.... I found cutting it with Rice Krispies was about right.

Like you used to remember?   How do remember it now?  

 

 

 

We were never allowed to have sugary cerals as kids.

Shredded wheat, Cheerios and Granola were about it.

Strangely, a few heaping teaspoons of sugar were allowed.  :dunno:

It's no wonder I haven't eaten cereal in 30+ years and have no desire to do so.  :lol:

I have no recollection of ever tasting Cap'n Crunch either.

Seems like we're better off for the lack of experience with such a dangerous cereal.  :crazy:

My parents would never buy it when I was a kid.  And look how great I turned out.

 

Oh wait, maybe that isn't such a good argument...:dunno:

Had to eat Rice Chex growing up. Unless my (single) mom went outside the WIC vouchers and used her own money.

 

Still love me some Rice Chex to this day. :smile:

My mom wouldn't buy it either, which in retrospect was prolly a good thing.  In the cafeteria of my college dorm, though, they sometimes had it, along with a few other cereals, in  giant plastic hoppers.  I liked it okay, but it was very sweet and definitely annihilated the roof of your mouth.

 

Anyone like Cracklin' Oat Bran?  Now THAT is a good snack, sans milk.

I like Fruity Pebbles.  Been gluten free since I was a kid.  I was pretty pumped that was gf because that was the only "garbage" cereal my Mom would buy.  It was always cheerios, total, etc.

I have rarely eaten any ceral since about 1987, no real reason, it's good food.  I don't like Milk, but it is tastes good in ceral, so this may be a large part.  

 

I remember the Walmart thing about Sam Walton going to meet ceral manufactures and asking them why a solar powered calculator costs half as much as a box of ceral.

Jim gets the kids a box for a Christmas treat (they love it but are never allowed cereal that sugary) and we all eat if for breakfast for a few days until it's gone. YUMMY!
