I have always had the habit of heating up the milk I pour on my cereal. It wasn't until fairly recently that I found out I am probably a freak.

Am I... am I alone in this world?

A cup of warm milk is a good thing sometimes, but in cereal...?

I don't like warm milk myself, but apparently there's a market for it.

See, those guys get it. Cookie-type cereal is delicious when sogged up in warm milk. This also helps passing the chocolate flavor to it.

Also, I don't know what kind of milk you're getting, but it's not going to curdle unless you take days to eat a single bowl.

I actually prefer the Special K with the vanilla clusters--same with Honey Bunches of Oats.

If you've never had Honey Nut Cheerios with vanilla flavored soy milk, you should try it. It's my new favorites food.

Soy milk isn't actually all that good for you. Rice milk is better, but damn it's pricey.

They shouldn't call either of those milk anyway.

It's smart marketing -- it's a milk replacement, and it sounds better than soy juice. Or rice juice.

If it's not secreted from a mammary gland, it's not milk.

I didn't say it was milk, fucktard, I said it was good marketing to call it milk.

And yeah, rice milk is pretty tasty.

CARE PACKAGE GET!

So it's actually a bit underwhelming. It's basically Dino Pebbles without the marshmallows, so it's still tasty, but not the flavor paradigm that was Berry Pebbles or even Marshmallow Mania Pebbles.

Any other opinions?

I don't think a day has gone by since I came here that hasn't had at least a few moments devoted to bemoaning the cereal situation in this country. But this evening I walked into Universe and what should my sugary-oat starved eyes behold but this:

It's caramel flavored chocolate rings. With banana balls!!!

I bought two boxes (which roughly equals one normal sized American box but costs 4 times as much). I shall post impressions later.

I always wondered why they phased him out here in a America. Are we Americans really that intolerant to cartoon mascots these days?
