Let's Dish: What Was Your Favorite Cereal as a Child?

Let's Dish: What Was Your Favorite Cereal as a Child?

In a special ad campaign that gears towards a consumers need for comfort, General Mills has brought back its old cereal box designs. Target shoppers may have noticed that Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, and Trix are sporting retro boxes taken directly from the company's archives.

The promotion has made me nostalgic and I can't help but think of the cereal I enjoyed as a child. While I consumed Cheerios on a regular basis, my absolute favorite was Lucky Charms. How about you reader? What cereal did you devour as a child? Do you still eat it today?

I noticed the boxes at Target... I love the new old look!My favs as a kid were Lucky Charms, Cheerios, Fruit Loops, Apple Jacks and Honeycomb. And yes, I still eat ALL of these when I get on a cereal for dinner kick (Lucky Charms are my favorite). I did find an organic "Cheerios" that I eat now the majority of the time - and I find no difference in the taste except the organic ones are somewhat crunchier.Oh, and remember Corn Bran (the commercials always had the scarecrow in the cabinet when the mom would reach for the cereal... weird!) Anyway - I loved that cereal as well. :)

I always liked "old people" cereals. Basic, Rasin Nut Bran, anything with fruit, nuts, and perhaps granola. It was expensive, so my dad wouldn't let me get it all that often, so I settled for Oh's, or PB/regular Capt. Crunch. One day I tried grape nuts... Yuck.

I've never been a big cereal eater, I've always preferred toast.

Frosted Flakes and Trix. My son knows if he asks for either of those he has to share!

It has always been Cheerios, even now I still love it!! Sometimes I eat them for dinner! We weren't allowed to eat much junk food when I was a kid, and there were definitely no sugary cereals in our house. That's probably why I hate them as an adult.

We hardly ever had sugared cereals, so the standards were Cheerios, Chex, Grape-Nuts, plain Rice Krispies, things like that... I used to love Oh's!, and Lucky Charms of course were my all-time favorite, but a very rare treat. I also loved the Rice Krispie Treats cereal, back when that existed... so yummy and addicting.

Trix! Or Frosted Flakes. I'd still eat FF on a rare occasion, but I can't really imagine eating Trix anymore.

I didn't really eat cereal as a child because I didn't like to drink milk. I'm lactose intolerant and I basically just hate the taste of milk. If I did eat cereal it was usually something sweet that I could eat dry like Frosted Flakes or Apple Jacks. I've just started eating cereal on a regular basis with soy milk and I'm in my 20s!

The ones I still love are Corn Pops and Peanut Butter Crunch. BUT for a brief glowing moment in my childhood, there was Pop-Tarts Cereal - they were square shaped and crunchy, in either brown sugar/cinnamon or strawberry flavor. So good but they didn't last!

The cereals mentioned aren't available here and weren't when I was a kid either. My favorite growing up was Cerola Apricot Toasted Muesli which is no longer available...rather boring but it was the fanciest cereal we were allowed to have as kids. We didn't each much junk and this was the closest we got to unhealthy cereal.
