Cereal Challenge


I recently sent a Product Body package to Leslie Green of The Hungry Housewife and included an Apple Jack in a Ziploc bag labeled, "This is what I have to resort to since your banana bread is gone :( " If you didn't read about our trade, you can right here.

She thanked me for the Froot Loop, and of course, I had to correct her immediately. I gave her a bit of a hard time for not knowing the Four Basic Cereal Food Groups, Apple Jacks being one of them. This inspired me to give stuff away and thought a cereal challenge could really allow you to think back to older days, or just from this morning, what cereals you might have in your repertoire.

The remarkable thing about this whole thing is that I didn't have to prepare AT ALL. Yes, I have TEN cereal boxes in my pantry, not including oatmeal and cereal bars.

Are you a cereal connoisseur? Do you know your cereal and if so, prove it! The first person to correctly identify all ten cereals wins! What do you win? It'll be a surprise, but work hard, because you never know what the prize could be!

Leave your comments with your answers! A helpful hint: Click on the photo to get it enlarged and to see more detail. Sorry, #4 was a beast to photograph for some reason.

UPDATE! Bigger hint: Two of them you can find in the natural foods isle.

Keep trying!

Not to be a cereal snob, but what on earth is that blue thing? Do you Americans have some mystery blue grain I don't know about? Actually, it could just be that I've been living in a cereal cave all of my life. We never (no, not once) had a box of Fruit Loops (Froot?) in the house when I was a kid, or any other colourful cereal. The worst cereal we had was Sugar Crisp, once in a blue moon. So... ummm, to sum up, I just made a batch of homemade granola last night, and am the worst contestant in your contest!

Teresa R said...

This is a fun contest, but we don't buy cereals that aren't organic, so I'm at a total loss with guessing convetional cereals. Some organic stuff look a lot like their conventional counterparts though; e.g. the O (#5) can be Cascadian Farm's Organic Honey Nut O's instead of Cheerios.

Crystal - Domaly said...

All of our cereals are on one aisle, we don't have a natural food aisle.

Bionic Beauty said...

1. Frosted Flakes
2. Bran nuts
3. Robin Hood (I have no idea on this one, lol)
4. Special K
5. Cheerios
6. Rice Krispies (They make them in blue?!?)
7. Corn Puffs
8. Lucky Charms? (That would make a pretty nail polish color...)
9. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
10. Capt. Crunch

Ok, so I really truly suck at identifying cereals. But thank you SO much for the giggles. Much appreciated! :-)
Tee Hee!

Most of the guesses sound right, so I'll be curious to see the correct ones. I'm guessing the BLUE one?? is not from the organic aisle? Too funny.

Kim said...

I am intrigued by the blue one. I didn't realize that Fruit Pebbles had blue flakes. Do they still make Boo Berry? Did Boo Berry have blue flakes?

Anne-Marie said...

Hilarious! I mostly eat Kashi and the new heart-healthy Shredded Oats so ended up flunking this one right off the bat! =) I am very impressed at the excellent guessing above me though.

This is such a great idea. And, cute, colorful photos as well.
