Nestle Honey Cheerios
As a child I remember eating Weetabix with Honey Nut Loops, a cereal with a very cheery buzzing bee as its logo. I know Cheerios has been around for a while, but only recently have I given it a go, when I ran out of my usual chocolate cereals. Cheerios is very similar to Honey Nut Loops, in fact other than being less sticky and not having a bee grace the cover of the Cheerios cereal box, they are practically the same.
Cheerios come in the shape of small circles with a hole in the middle, I like to think of them as miniature doughnuts. They are very sweet, the flavour is more of sugar than of honey, and they are very crunchy. The sweet taste lingers on the tongue for a few minutes before becoming a mere memory. As a child I was forced to eat Weetabix, but as I hated the stuff, my parents decided to add Honey Nut Loops on top of this to make it tastier. Yes, this did work while the loops lasted, but they made little difference to the milky Weetabix below, and once the loops were finished I had to add more loops until I had finished all the Weetabix.
I always take milk with my morning cereal, or rather I take cereal with my morning milk, a healthy habit. Cheerios in warm milk becomes soggy quickly though not as quickly as coco pops, presumably because Cheerios are thicker. As with most cereals they taste best partially crunchy and partially soft. They leave the milk tasting very sweet, almost as though you have put a spoon of sugar into the milk. This is not a taste that I like, as I am not a fan of plain milk, and this is just sweetened plain milk, so it does make me feel nauseous when I drink the remaining milk without any Cheerios. As such, Cheerios are a cereal I prefer to eat dry, and I find that they make a great midnight snack when I am very hungry.
Call me a child, but I do prefer cereals that have a friendly animal or insect logo accompanying it, I reckon Cheerios could do with one! Overall this is a decent cereal, definitely recommended. Available in all supermarkets in varying sizes and prices.
Summary: A good cereal
