Is Cereal Soup?

Is cereal soup? Even if it's for breakfast? Or cold? Why does it matter? Shouldn't it be by definition, soup?

Why or why not?

Re: Is Cereal Soup?

Re: Is Cereal Soup?

but grains are a vegetable.
Many good soups have dairy in them---cheese, cream etc...

Re: Is Cereal Soup?

Cereal cannot be eaten with a grilled cheese sandwich, so I would not call it soup. Unless, of course, you leave it too long after you've poured the milk, in which case you are a wastrel and should be confined.

Do you think crackers are a soup too?

Re: Is Cereal Soup?

Don't soups, even cold ones, at one point require heating?

Hence, cold cereal = not soup

Hot cereal/oatmeal = soup

But at one point, cereal was baked and toasted. The milk was heated and pasteurized.

1. A liquid dish, typically savoury and made by boiling meat, fish, or vegetables etc. in stock or water.

2. A substance or mixture regarded as resembling soup in appearance or consistency.
‘the waves and the water beyond have become a thick brown soup’
So, to sum up, the two answers to the question at hand are:

1. No

2. No, unless metaphorically

Re: Is Cereal Soup?

Soup does not snap, crackle or pop.

Ideally...

Re: Is Cereal Soup?

If your cereal is soupy your cereal/milk ratio is waaaaaay off.

If your soup isn't soupy it's stew.

Re: Is Cereal Soup?

only one brand of cereal snap/crackle/pops. And even then it's weak marketing.

What about cereal that changes the color for those who can't get over the white soup color?

Cereal is dry. It is not a soup.

Yup. Milk does not a cereal make.

In his AMA, Conan O'Brien ruled that due to the hinged bread, a hot dog is technically a taco.
