Any true cereal lover knows the second best thing to eating cereal is talking about cereal. It's been a while since we've had a good, rousing discussion here on Cereal Eats and I think it's about time.
Perhaps we should start at the very beginning. What appears to be a basic question, but what any true cereal-lover knows is, in fact, the very opposite. OK, yes, push comes to shove, first thing that pops into my head, I've got to say Cinnamon Toast Crunch—but the conversation doesn't stop there. Well, at least not for cereal obsessives. It's all about categories: sugary cereals, dinner cereals, dry cereals, mixing cereals, and the list goes on.
Here are my favorites:

I'm probably going to regret this post the moment is it published. I always find that when i list my favorite cereals, someone mentions some dark horse and suddenly I'm questioning everything.
Alright Cereal Eaters, your turn! Agree with me? Disagree with me? What are your categories? What are your favorites?
