Often sweet, sometimes healthy, good with milk, starts your day off right. What isn't to love about cereal? Grainy, sugary, marshmallowy, oaty, corny, vitamin-and-mineral-enriched crunchy blobs of goodness. Sometimes it gets soggy. It would be easy to go on and on about all the qualities of cereal. But one thing's for sure. America loves it. We eat literal tons of it every year (not each of us, well, maybe some of us eat that much.. but tons in the overall sense).


Da Big-ass Cereal Chart: this isn't a full listing of cereals (of course). It's a brief summary of cereals often enjoyed by many people. And then there's what WE think of 'em.
