Cereal - Round 3 (The Elite Eight)

How on earth did Corn Flakes lose to Apple Jacks? Someone explain that to me.

Rice Krispies vs Apple Jacks - There is no doubt in my mind that if I sat down at a table and these two boxes were in front of me that I would choose the Rice Krispies. All I would need is a little bit of sugar, some milk and some toast and I would be a happy man.

Frosted Flakes vs Raisin Bran - Tough one for me. I love Frosted Flakes but man Raisin Bran was my shit! I know this is gonna be weird but I loved to let my Raisin Bran get soggy. I would pull my milk and let it sit. I think Raisin Bran was the only cereal that I didn't like crunchy. I think I will go with Raisin Bran on this one.

Cheerios vs Fruity Pebbles - Ok...Cheerios float. You can't sink them. No matter how hard you try. Fruity Pebbles has the best tasting cereal milk. What to do what to do. I pick the Cheerios.

Cap'n Crunch vs Froot Loops - My two childhood favorites facing off. I gotta go with the Cap'n Crunch though. I still remember that submarine I got out of the cereal box that time. You put baking powder in it and fill up the sink and the thing would rise and dive. It was so cool.


  1. So far, I think Apple Jacks are the only cereal I hated as a kid. We begged and begged our mom to get them and then thought they tasted like... well, you know.

    Rice Krispies over Apple Jacks
    Frosted Flakes over Raisin Bran
    Cheerios over Fruity Pebbles
    Froot Loops over Cap'n Crunch

    I love a crunchy cereal and Raisin Bran would just get too soggy. Also, two scoops of raisins were never enough.

    I hate the way Fruity Pebbles sweetened milk. Yeah, it would taste good the first few times you drank it, but the sugary film was a bit off-putting.

    Cap'n Crunch was just too hard. You couldn't eat them right away or risk gum lacerations. Also, Froot Loops tasted better.

    I have to agree with Roger that Corn Flakes should not have lost. You know you still buy that shit!

  2. hmm ... Cheerios, Fruitloops, Frosted Flakes, Rice Crispies.

    Cap'n Crunch cuts thee roof of your mouth. No matter what the Cap'n says.

    Now, Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch, that'd be another story - I will gladly suffer gum lacerations if it means I get some of that Peanut Buttery goodness.

  3. I'm a fan of peanut butter too... I might even be addicted. yes, I think I would change my vote if it were peanut butter cap'n crunch.
