Breakfast cereal

Which do you eat most often? Do you just like the taste, or that it is healthy?

Mine: Grape nuts. Low sugar, tastes decent and to me is guilt free.

Raisin Bran. Seems healthy to me, and tastes good. Also, Honey Bunches of Oats is pretty good.

My winter breakfast is oatmeal (made with milk, not water) with apples, bananas, walnuts and raisins. I sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top, too.

Edit: I like it because it's pretty healthy, tasty, and warms me up.

Probably not terribly healthy, but it's not too sweet and fills me up just enough. I tried eating oatmeal in the morning but it almost made me puke.

I usually eat breakfast cereal as a snack before bed. Lucky Charms, Froot Loops, Cinnamon Life, Suga... Hone... Golden Crisps, Golden Grahams. Whatever is in the house.

Grape nuts tastes like the gravel from a fishtank, though I acknowledge its healthy properties.

Cream of wheat is my favorite by far. I love the taste, but it has too few calories.

Used to be Product 19, but I don't think they make it anymore, so now it's Crispix.

Cheerios.

But the UK Cheerios are completely different than American Cheerios. The UK ones are, I think, sort of more like the US Multigrain Cheerios... but not quite the same thing. The American regular ones are just bland.

Breakfast is usually Greek yoghurt with acacia honey dribbled on.
