I don't really dislike any breakfast ereal uness it insists on being overtly 'healthy' and covering everything in yogurt. Evil.

They use it on Coronation Street, so it may well be a Northern thing that Random wouldn't have heard. The problem with relying on slang dictionaries is that they don't take into account that England, much less the U.K. is not monolithic, especially when it comes to language. Don't tell the other librarians I said that, though, it's nigh on sacrilege.

Yes, Random, I watch it religiously. I've been watching it on and off since the early Eighties, but regularly only since about 2000, when I came back from Texas. I'm an addict, I have no excuses.

Of those proposed...

Wheetos - They're disgusting you freakish boy.
Coco Pops - You are freakish.
Wheetabix - More like wheeta-glupe the way I eat it but still a fine thing for keeping that bowl cancer free.
Shredded Wheat - Freakish! Freakish!!! Unless you mean the honey nut version, which due in large part to the honey-nut-goodness added makes for a tastey cardboard-y bowl-regulatory breakfast... -y.
Crunchy Nut Cornflakes - Yum-age.


Now the worst:
Sugar Puffs - almost edible if you don't actually add any milk.
Frosties - so sugary it'll make your teeeth hurt.
Lucky Charms - Wha?

I cannot be eating frosties and lucky charms because they are too sugary I actually feel my teeth rotting as I consume them.
As for sugar puffs, well the smell reminds of male public toilets that haven't been cleaned in ages.

The ones I like are there because I actually like them. The secret to eating shredded wheat is to break them down so they soak up all the milk and then lightly add some sugar to add sweetness and the result is bliss.

Weetabix crunchy bran with natural live yoghurt are heavenly.

Glad Stealth has healthy "bowls" (sic), wouldn't want to eat your breakie out of a cancerous one.

All time fav cereal is Tescos own Multigrain, but the basts have stopped selling it. Pah!

Marmalade on heavily buttered and lightly done toast....mmmmm sogggy, messy but yum. With a Weetabix (4) for afters. Burp!!

reminds of the Beano, 'marmalade'. The bash Street Kids sat at computers, on the screen it said
"spell marmalade" and they're all scratching their heads.
I know its meaningless now, but it made me laugh when I was ten.

No, we're all too high minded to stoop to that level.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Sorry, I tried to say it with a straight face, but I just couldn't hold it. Very Happy
