dh was shock

is it merely an american-raised thing?

faverolles Sun 04-Sep-11 23:22:23

I always do. Never thought it was wrong.
They're not very nice without sugar.

kerrymumbles Sun 04-Sep-11 23:22:54

EXACTLY!

cadelaide Sun 04-Sep-11 23:23:06

No.

bet your dh has lovely teeth though.

MumblingRagDoll Sun 04-Sep-11 23:23:08

Your DH must have been brought up on Mars...everyone puts sugar on cornflakes!

No, I do it too!

Don't really like them without, although other cereal is fine plain. Also, has to be cornflakes with sugar, NOT Frosties or the pre-sugared crap.

backwardpossom Sun 04-Sep-11 23:24:22

I do, too.

It's what we were brought up to do in the 70s, isn't it? I don't do it now though, I don't particularly like the taste anymore.

faverolles Sun 04-Sep-11 23:25:52

Rice krispies need sugar too.

inatrance Sun 04-Sep-11 23:25:56

Cornflakes without sugar is just wrong.

Not as wrong as weetabix without sugar though...

MindyMacready Sun 04-Sep-11 23:26:03

Nope, only when I was a nipper. I think there is more sugar in the flakes nowadays!

ivykaty44 Sun 04-Sep-11 23:28:26

Cornflakes already have sugar on them, this saves you the bother of having to sprinkle sugar on the flakes again and gives you more time in bed

PumpkinBones Sun 04-Sep-11 23:28:49

I put sugar on all unsweetened cereals. However I am evil in that I have not permitted my children to do the same. They don't know you can put sugar on cereal, and will happily eat weetabix without it <gags>

I have a LOT of fillings!

PumpkinBones Sun 04-Sep-11 23:29:20

ivykaty no, that's Frosties!

kerrymumbles Sun 04-Sep-11 23:30:06

do cornflakes already have sugar?

i thought that was only frosted flakes?

confused

Kayano Sun 04-Sep-11 23:30:40

Frosties anyone?
Does
Not
Compute

x-post with pumpkin

he says the only person he's ever seen sprinkle sugar on cereal is Jack on 2.5 Men.

I said it's only corn flakes.

though maybe I used to do it with Rice Krispies as well now that you mention it faverolles

My DH doesn't have sugar on his cereal either, despite being dragged up in the 80's. He does have sugar in tea and coffee though, as do I, and lots of people think that is weird - in my last three jobs, I was the only person in the office who took sugar in drinks.

startail Sun 04-Sep-11 23:36:24

I dare not eat rice crispies, I put too much sugar on them!

kerrymumbles Sun 04-Sep-11 23:36:46

i was STARVING. after travelling all night.

only thing quick and easy.

BaronessBomburst Sun 04-Sep-11 23:40:06

I always preferred golden syrup. Not eaten cereal since I was a child though.

RollingInTheAisles Sun 04-Sep-11 23:44:11

Nearly all cereals already have added sugar, particularly rice krispies and definitely cornflakes. I think it's a 70's child thing too.

I don't care for cereal but I gag when I see people putting sugar on it. It's like having dessert for breakfast !!!
Main meals should be SAVOURY !!
Sweet things can only be consumed as a dessert or snack !!

How anyone can eat a fry up... bleugh!
