Advantages: Can be a good way to start the day
Disadvantages: Must admit too much sugar is a bad thing.
There are hundreds of types of cereal available to us these days, some healthy, some not, some tasty and some not. Crispy, chewy, gloopy any taste and texture is represented somewhere.
My grandad is Scottish (I am very much English though), his favourite cereal (I think this qualifies as cereal) is the scottish staple, porridge. Porridge is suprisingly adaptable and as such must be worth a mention (even though personally I'm not too keen on the stuff. Porridge can be made with wate or with milk, it can be covered in sugar for the sweet toothers out there and salt for more savoury snackers. It goes with any topping you care to mention really, strawberries, maple/golden syrup, Chocolate chips, Sausages (well maybe not, but the list goes on and on and on). Even though I'm not the biggest fan I can definately see the draw as I'm sure it's a perfect winter warmer.
My Brother is generally a bit healthier than I am, his favourite cereal is Alpen, a pleasant concoction of wheaty and oaty bits, dried fruits and a selection of nuts (almonds and hazelnuts). I do like this cereal made by Weetabix but wouldn't consider them a favourite.
My step mum Eve is constantly on one diet or another, so she swears by Special K, which is mainly bran fibre, with loads of vitamins and less than 3% fat, a good cereal for anyone watching their figure. I don't think this is her favourite necessarily but it's definately the one she has most often.
And now we come to lil old me, I'm usually a fried breakfast kinda guy but when I do have cereals I'm afraid they're usually the sugary chocolate varieties, such as Choco shreddies (oh god yeah!!!) weetos and coco pops (these were quite literally all I used to eat when I was about 3, a very fussy baby, hehe).
My favourite cereals of all time though (and I hate to admit this) come from our transatlantic cousins (although the kind of cousin you don't like being seen out with very much). America is the land of obscenely sugary cereals and I must admit I do love them, the likes of 'fruity pebbles' (thats a laugh), Cap'n crunch, fruit loops (ooh they sure love their fruit in America) and Oreo O's.
For me sugar wins where cereal is concerned, which is odd as I'm a savoury character for the most part ; )
I must admit though, all cereals come a distant second to the full english, Mmmmmmm Coronary!!!!
Summary: Hundreds of types to try.
