Could Cinnamon Chex Be Better than Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

Cereal Eats Leandra Palermo 11 comments

To begin our exploration of Chex, I have to talk about Cinnamon Chex. Someone has to know. EVERYONE has to know. Cinnamon Chex is a masterpiece. Perhaps even better than Cinnamon Toast Crunch. More

Cereal Eats: 3 Cereals from Singapore

Cereal Eats Leandra Palermo 13 comments

"You do realize that people in Singapore commonly eat rice cakes with preserved radish for breakfast...?" came Max's skeptical query. Shhh, please, Max, let me enjoy the fantasy that people around the world are enjoying cereals of unknown shapes, colors and flavors just waiting for me to discover them. More

The combination of crunchy, tasty little chocolate cereal pieces and those beloved Lucky Charms marshmallows make for a cereal that would have altered my childhood universe. Forget cake and pie and ice cream—this is all the dessert I need. More

Cereal Eats: The Battle of the 'Waffle' Cereals

Cereal Eats Leandra Palermo 23 comments

Now, this in no way takes away from my love of cereal, but I have a wild, uncontrollable love for waffles, too. I'd happily eat them plain, or even frozen. Look, I'm also a big fan of made-from-scratch-and-an-iron waffles, but that's another story for another time. More

Cereal Eats: Eating Cereal In (Apple) Season

Cereal Eats Leandra Palermo 18 comments

There is a very small but important group of apple cereals out there. I guess we should get right to the point and say that we have Apple Jacks to thank for bringing this strange cereal flavor into the mainstream. I mean, if you think about it, there are plenty of other assorted fruit flavors of cereal (Fruity Pebbles, Froot Loops, Trix, etc) but rarely has one single fruit flavor been celebrated in cereal form like the classic apple.

Sunday Brunch: Muesli

Serious Eats Robin Bellinger 1 comment

Having intended for a few months now to try making my own muesli, I was finally spurred to action by reading Dr. Bircher's original recipe in Jane Grigson's Fruit Book. It surprised me by recommending 1 tablespoon of oats per serving, which sounded absurdly stingy, but Marion Cunningham and Wikipedia confirmed the proportions. Once everything else is stirred in, there is indeed enough to go around. It just turns out that real muesli is a little more apple-heavy than I had realized. More

2010 Trend Prediction: Fancy Oatmeal

Erin Zimmer 45 comments

©iStockphoto.com/ burwellphotography I was pretty giddy to read the Guardian declare that "we're currently in the midst of a porridge renaissance...everyone from McDonald's to Michelin-starred restaurants serving it." If 2010 is the year of porridge (or oatmeal, breakfast goop, whatever you want to call it) then shoot, let's get this party started. Thanks to Robyn, for Christmas I got the soon-to-be-most-vogue accessory: a spurtle. Yes, it's basically just a wooden wand (fine, a stick) but it's the official stirring device, particularly in the UK. At the end of the Guardian piece, the writer described her idea of a perfect bowl: Place a quarter of a cup of unsoaked McCann's steel cut oats in a pan with one cup of... More

Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds: The True Champion of Breakfast Cereals?

Ed Levine 41 comments

Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds just might be the finest mass market breakfast cereal ever, better than Total, better than Wheaties, better than Rice Krispies, better than Cheerios, and yes, even better than Cap'n Crunch. More

Cereals from the Super Hero Food Index

Erin Zimmer Post a comment

When they are not slaying dragons or saving distressed maidens, superheros keep busy working on cereal endorsements. Batman, Spiderman, and the Hulk have all been tied to sugar-coated flakes or O's. Many of them have even forayed into Pop-Tarts. Gotta pay the cape and skin-tight suit dry cleaning bills somehow. If you want to move beyond breakfast and eat like you have unprecedented powers all the time, check out the Super Hero Food Index, which includes the expected fruit snacks, popsicles, and cheese crackers.
