Recently starting eating breakfast again and want to get back into the cereal game.
What is the DiSers cereal of choice?
Recommend any "healthy" options, you know the ones that aren't loaded with sugar and salt but are also nice enough to fill my tummy in the morning.
they are 31p for a 500g box. They taste like the cornflakes you get at cheap hotels, which for basically free, is pretty good.
That is incredible value
they are less in sugar than the other cornflakes on the market, so they also might be the healthiest too.
for the similarly cheap, similarly decent Morrisons version.
No thanks I like my teeth
get some Cocopops down you.
i saw an advert about a weetabix drink
Not a fan of weetabix
absolutely vile concept. who the fuck would want that? why does it exist?
people leaving comments on articles on thegrocer.co.uk is a thing
elthamsmateowen's mate eltham has tried that
you can buy it in bitesize too, now that's a proper tool
Morrisons cheapest weetabix/cornflakes/bran flakes/shreddies copy.
Treats: Home made peanut butter granola as per http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4443867#r8022339
That sounds yuck but I'm strange for not liking peanut butter I expect
The PB is mainly there for consistency/coherence and sweetness. It can be subbed out for something else.
the one with the hench scottish man on the front
The ones with chocolate chips in.
if you choose one that even nearly tastes nice people point at you and call you a child or a toothless pleb.
fuck it, i'll stay in bed until 1 and then start making sandwiches
I'm going to need to go for a long walk, I think.
it is about £1.40, decent bag of museli with tropical fruits. Bloody loads of sugar, but balance it by sticking a banana in it or something.
Failing that, I make a batch of porridge and take that in, touch of salt and honey.
Getting milk out the fridge and sugar out the cupboard
Although unless you eat them immediately after applying milk, they turn to baby food.
As a side note, quite often drive through/past Burton Latimer - home of Weetabix - it fucking reeks of Weetabix with hot milk. Bleurgh.
eaten dry, no milk.
now you have to eat it FOREVER
I like it. I'm eating some right now - I take a pot of it to work each day.
I dont have milk with cereal
I graze on it and it stops me from eating too many biscuits,
i'm counting weetabix bricks as clusters too
but my favourite, the berries one, always gives me the squits
Generally the cheapest for "own brand cereal" (bar those 31p ones from Tesco/Sainsburys)
or maple and pecan cluster bollocks
one of those things where you should always buy the branded stuff
Seriously, it's not as bad as that at all. In fact, I think I prefer it because I know I can have hunners of extra bowls and know that I need to buy seven boxes of the stuff to even come close to ONE box of the branded stuff.
Same ingredients, made in the same way. Maybe even at the same factory
People pay for the branding, and they are idiots
Especially with stuff like corn flakes, weetabix, shredded wheat etc
Tastes exactly the same
it tastes like sawdust, because it is
Keep spending £2.50 on a box of Kellogs corn flakes that are exactly the same as the 31p ones I bought from Tesco
you don't get pictures of animals and dinosaurs and shit on the box of your crappy 31p cornflakes. YOU DON'T EVEN GET A BOX, THEY JUST COME IN THE BAG
No point going all healthy for breakfast of you're eating pizza and/or keebabs in the evening.
Plus I usually brush my teeth within 20 mins of breakfast. Closer to eating time than any other meal.
and top it off with some lightly toasted hazelnuts. I have it with some really chilled soya milk and then look at myself in the mirror until I breakdown in tears and have lost my appetite.
keeps me full till lunch and doesn't give me gut ache. I never usually eat cereal.
The absolute tits. Eat it dry as a snack all the time too.
and also very 80s
You can get Sultana Bran but it's really expensive for a tiny box so I do it this way. Actually Tesco own brand Sultana Bran is quite reasonably priced but the Tesco Express beside my house doesn't stock it.
Sometimes I like to offset this healthiness with Crunchy Nut or Honey Loops or Weetos though.
'simply fruity muesli'
with pineapple, papaya and sultanas.
like, 30% fruit, and the oats are decent.
before that, I had some Sainbury's tropical granola.
both of these are great.
I'm bored of kid's cereal and kid's cereal for grown-ups (Crunchy Nut).
they advertise how much "fruit" it contains, you then realise each mouthful is basically half raisins.
good amount of non-sultana/raisin fruit.
It's probably good for my movements.
As a treat I sometimes add a small chopped banana or a small handful of sultanas.
