What's your favorite breakfast cereal?

As a kid I was addicted to Kaboom! cereal. These days I love my Honey Nut Cheerios. You?

Honey bunches of Oats with Almonds. Except for the high-fat cereals, this takes the cake.

Steel Cut Oats with some cinnammon, fresh nutmeg and some blueberries or raisins. Dry stuff is the Special K knock-off from Kroger with Redberries. Of course neither beats an eggs & great toast breakfast with the exception of the cholesterol scale!

One can of Slim-fast.

On a once-per-month "Day of Dietary Decadence" I'll make a giant western omelet with either bacon or sausage.

I don't normally eat cereal for breakfast, usually have a banana and 8 oz of OJ. If I'm out of 'nanas the fall back is instant oatmeal.

Steel-cut oatmeal with melted butter and a dollop of raspberry jam in the crater in the middle, with a moat of fresh milk all around.

Reminds me of living with my Irish Nana, who cooked a giant pot from scratch every morning. Even in that cold, damp climate a bowl of "porridge" in the morning would keep us toasty warm all the way to school...

What lovely memories are evoked by simple foods that were served with love!

Raisin Bran, but the new McSkillet burritos at Mcdonalds are keeping me from eating breakfast at home.
