Screw da' milk!

That's an easy one: Froot Loops. Apple Jacks and good chunky granola get honorable mention.

If not in the mood for something sweet, Cheerios.

I eat all cereal dry, IMO milk in cereal is disgusting. Honey Bunches of Oats is a good choice, I like that one too. I usually add some Quaker Harvest Crunch granola to it as well.

I also eat all cereal dry. Milk or any liquid turns it into a mushy, inedible abomination, the sludge which isn't fit even for dogs.

One of my favorites to eat is: https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/861...0&odnBg=ffffff

Another is Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Yet a third is cinnamon Frosted Flakes.

They're better than donuts and actually contain *some* nourishment!

I've always felt Life Cereal was the best out-of-box variety!

Better as ice cream than a cereal.

To me, that's as wacky as saying that tomato sauce on pizza is disgusting.

I sometimes will grab a handful of Cheerios (regular, honey nut, apple cinnamon). Chex can be okay dry too I suppose. Apple Jacks arenít bad dry either. Generally though if Iím going for cereal Iím having a bowl with milk.

No, it's just the normal way to eat cereal.

Re: Your favorite cereal to eat dry right from the box?

I rarely eat cereal these days, but when I do, I like it with milk. I don't like it getting soggy, so I add milk as I eat.

When I eat cereal dry, it's...

Exactly. That's why all the boxes have milk somewhere in the graphic. It's either in the bowl in the spoon or somewhere. It's how a fast majority enjoy it - so yep I'd go with "normal".

I know I'm weird in my breakfast culinary dining habits. I also like bananas green and orange juice without any pulp at all.

I used to put some in a resealable baggie and snack on it at work. No wonder I came down with heart disease.

You like your bananas with no flavor. Why even eat it like that? So much more delicious when it's properly ripe.
