Here is a Trivia Question:
DO you know the story of Shredded Wheat?
(Man did this dredge up an old memory).


No I didn't.

I do now. Very interesting, I had no idea it had been around that long.

Love this thread! I was a cerealaholic as a kid-I'd eat it 3 meals a day if I could. Now my breakfast consists of non-fat plain yogurt with blueberries mixed in. I'm not a huge fan but I cannot eat carbs in the morning as it jacks my sugar level big time. I will occasionally eat 1 piece of whole wheat toast with natural peanut butter & reduced sugar grape jelly but not often. I've also become lactose intolerant as I've aged so milk is out of the question. And it's a wicked bummer because I miss my Cocoa Krispies and Fruit Loops! [emoticon]


In place of cows milk, I use either soy or almond milk. Although cows milk has value, it was originally designed for calves. I’m perfectly satisfied with the none milk products.

Regarding Cow's milk v/s plant-milks
I have seen studies that are ... Well.. Mixed

As for Cheereos
Honey Nut Flavor Does contain added sugar (Both Honey and brown sugar and regular sugar in this order Oats. Sugar Corn Wtart Honey Brown Sugar Syrup Salt)

12 gram of added sugar per serving. 12 gram total sugar per serving
(Box beside me as I type) 3 gram of Dietary Fiber 210 mG Sodium. 2 gram fat.

I like sugar. Have liked it all my life. I have been known to put sugar on Frosted Mini Wheats!
My weight held steady until I retired, then I became overweight, even though my sugar consumption was curtailed.
The old saw that my mother used; "If you keep eating that much sugar, you will get sugar diabetes!" did not come true. Yet. It has been over 70 years since I first heard that. Another old saw disproven (for me, at least.).
Oh, well, whatever floats yer boat, I guess...

I remember eating cold cereal. I preferred Grape Nuts, Raisin Bran, Wheat/Corn/Rice Chex, Shredded Wheat, and plain Cheerios. If I wanted them sweet, I always preferred to do it myself.

I used to eat Cheerios for a snack, out of the box, no milk. But with diabetes, even plain Cheerios are not good. Just about all the main grains will cause a glucose spike, so I avoid them, except for the occasional bowl of hot oatmeal with butter. Add lots of butter and I don't really miss the sweetener anymore.

On rare occasions, I can find a muesli mix out of mostly nuts and seeds and no sugar added, and I have that for breakfast. I'm good for the day, then, not needing anything else until the evening.

Do miss the cereal at times, though.

Grew up on Rice Krispies, Shredded Wheat and Wheaties
Slice bananas in the Rice Krispies
Shredded Wheat was the large biscuits that you had to crush so they would fit in bowl
Wheaties.....best eat quickly. Otherwise within minutes it was a bowl of mush (and disgusting)

LOTS of Sugar
Sugar Bowl had to be refilled daily

Still eat Rice Krispies, Shredded Wheat and Bob's Red Mill 'Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal' (Pat of butter and scoop of dark brown sugar....yummm!)

Rice Krispies with sliced bananas plus Sugar on them and the Shredded Wheat

Sugary cereals are not new........ aisles were full of them when I was a kid and still are except more options today

Boxes are 'Family Sized' (bigger boxes but contents are not as full)
Regular size boxes have less quantity so pricing remains low ---except you are really paying more for less
Boxes have become 'BAGS' of cereal

Yes, old biscuit, the Bob’s Red Mill hot cereals are some of my favorites, too.

It's been a long time since I've had a hot cereal, even longer since a cold cereal. I used to eat Raisin Bran Crunch, stayed crunchy in milk longer than regular Raisin Bran. When I switched to Oatmeal, I'd mash up bananas and add frozen blueberries, no sugar added. It is very good, but I got lazy. Now I usually have a granola bar, some nuts and/or fruit.

Not sure why you would eat cereal most every day for breakfast, but if you're going to do that, at least you are avoiding the sugar.

Fruit Loops, Cap'n Crunch, Honey Oat Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, and Grape Nuts would be my favorites. Sometimes all mixed together in a big bowl. But it is a rare treat. Once a year? Maybe twice.

Anyone tried Hot Grape Nuts? I think you can find the recipe on the box. Beats the heck out of oatmeal or cream of wheat. Once a month maybe. Humans should not eat cereal more than that.
