Favorite cereal?

We all love those Kellogg's 3D cards and all them oddball cards from the 90s, 80s, 70s, and before.

Today there aren't as many cardboard incentives in cereal now.
Gone are the days of influencing us to buy boxes of Post and Kellogg's cereal for a baseball card.

What are some of your favorite cereals that you actually look forward to buying not because of any novelty toys or gimmicks inserted?
I know I look forward to the Monster cereals every Halloween (Count Chocula, Boo Berry, FrankenBerry).  The sugary goodness is too much to resist.

Andrew McCutchen was known for his love of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and this 2013 Topps Chrome proves it.

Oh, you can't see it?

That's because it's the camo version of Topps Chrome numbered to only 15 copies.

Turn it over and you'll see that I'm not crazy.

On a related note, here's a funny article about Ralph Kiner and Wheaties.


  1. That would be Reese’s Puffs.

  2. I don't eat cold cereal very often. When I do it's usually Raisin Bran or Raisin Bran Crunch. I had quite a few favorites as a kid...Frosted Flakes was #1 followed by Sugar Pops, Honeycomb and Sugar Crisp.

  3. I'd probably say Cracklin' Oat Bran, but the stuff is so expensive that I buy it maybe once a year, if that.

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch is good too, but you gotta be sure to stay away from the generic versions of it.. somehow the knock-offs never get it right and it's just bland.

  4. I came here for the Boo Berry.

  5. I am not sure I can narrow down my favorites. But rice Krispie treats cereal gotta be at the top

  6. I'm all about Frosted Flakes and Raisin Bran Crunch..though there's always plenty of options in the house thanks to my kids.

    How come no one in the Pittsburgh area ever made a Cinnamon Toast Cutch cereal?

  7. Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Life, and Multigrain Cheerios.

  8. I can't remember the last time I ate cereal. It might have been decades ago.

    But when I was a kid, nothing could match Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries.
