Friday Food Videoblog: Cereal

Breakfast. The most important meal of the day. It’s the perfect place to get a kick start for all the time ahead of you. Luckily, Americans can choose between a lot of different types of cereal to get their important nutritions like vitamin A, B, C and D, fiber and whole grain (and sugar, most of it is sugar). Because apparently, having fruit for breakfast is a boring way to get those vitamins. To find out which kind of cereal I like best and which one I want to have when visiting Missouri, I bought eight small boxes with various types. My biggest conclusion is that I don’t care for either one of them, but you should definately check out the video that comes with it.

What’s your favorite cereal?

What do you have for breakfast?

  1. Your video made me laugh. . . especially because I don’t really care for any of the cereals you tried (oh, and fruit loops I ate ALL the time as a kid. . . that and Lucky Charms). My favorite cereal still today are Coco Pebbles. They’re kinda like your Coco Crispies (in that they’re really small) but they have such a more distinct and delicious chocolatey taste. Also, if you like Reese Peanut Butter cups, they make it in the cereal form of Reese’s. And that is really good as well.

    • Remember how the whole world loves football (soccer) except for the Americans? Reese’s is the other way around. I wanted to do a video on Reese’s, but I gave it to someone who does like it. Glad it made you laugh though 🙂

  2. All boxed cereals are far too sweet for me. The only reason I know is my grandkids eat a variety of them and do a kind of commercial for me. “You have to try this, grandma. It’s delicious.” Ugh. No.

    Usually I have regular corn flakes with blueberries or strawberries. If I couldn’t have that I would go for Cherrios, the original one.

    Thanks for being the guinea pig for all those other folks who need to know.

  3. Just like you I detest all those overly sweet cereals. Give me good old-fashioned porridge any time…followed by some fruit. Besides, I live in Wales, where it’s cold for most of the year. There’s nothing like porridge in the morning to melt the “frosticals” off your nose.

  4. I actually like Frosted Flakes! But I can completely understand why someone who has not grown up in the Land of Sugar, I mean the United States, would find them too sweet. I usually have a couple pieces of buttered toast (using a nice whole grain bread) and some milk for breakfast. I loved the video but can not imagine eating five bowls of cereal!!!!

    • Having the five bowls had its effect two hours later. I’m not used to that amount of sugar (even though it’s easy to get here too, although I notice veggies are definitely cheaper here). Apparently my audience has a similar feeling for breakfast as I do.
