Mine was Corn Chex, but they no longer sell it in the UK. They stopped selling it about 15 years ago. Now my favourite is Frosted Wheats.

Coco pops
Crunchy nut cornflakes with ice cold milk

Golden Graham’s as a child but I think they are called cinnamon Graham’s now and they don’t taste the same.

Lidl do a peanut and chocolate cluster cereal which is lovely but probably has as many calories as a bowl of ice cream.

Ricicles! Recently discontinued as I found out when 8 months pregnant and having a major craving, having driven to 3 supermarkets to find some hmm bloody sugar tax!

As a kid Ricicles, now Raisin wheats

My mum loved Force flakes. She was sad when they stopped making them as they were the first commercial cereal she'd ever had. I think I've got her Sunny Jim doll.
Me-70s special k-the little round Puffy ones.

Shredded Wheat. No added sugar, salt or other crap. Love it.

TalkinPeece Thu 21-Jun-18 20:18:44

Capn' Crunch

Rice Crispies, I thought but actually really Corn flakes except they did not crackle and pop!! Used to think that 8 mini boxes of cereal packages were thr coolest things ever despite not liking most of the contents.

Coco pops, Frosties, Honey Nut Cornflakes.

The ones full of sugar basically.

As a more health conscious adult now I usually have boring old porridge and fruit. envy

I'm partial to Special K and Crunchy Nut. Not together.

Can't stand Cornflakes or Shredded Wheat. Like chewing cardboard.

Ioved Golden Nuggets as a child.

I have porridge these days but would have coco pops or similar as a treat

Mookie81 Thu 21-Jun-18 20:21:56

Coco Pops all day long. Warm milk, slurp the choccy milk with a spoon first, then eat the soggy Pops. grin

@PinotAndPlaydough I loved them aswell. They still have small boxes in Tesco!

BifsWif Thu 21-Jun-18 20:22:18

I loved Raisin Wheats (remember when they were called Raisin Splits?) and Start.

I don’t eat cereal now.

ByAllMeansMoveAtAGlacialPace Thu 21-Jun-18 20:22:22

Used to be sugar puffs, now it's crunchy nut cornflakes.

ScreamingValenta Thu 21-Jun-18 20:22:57

All Bran for me!

Golden grahams & cinammon grahams aren't the same, that's why they taste different. Cinnamon grahams used to be called something else, I can't remember what. Cinnamon toast, or something?

Alpen no added sugar but I never buy it as it’s so expensive.
Kids are mad for cheerios.
Am partial to weetabix.

It’s non-stop breakfast fun in our house I can tell you.
