Omnivore - Question of the Week: Cereal killer
Question of the Week usually doesn't appear on this blog, but these days I find that my breakfast cereal needs are not being met. I don't actually eat my breakfast cereal at breakfast, mind you, but I have a ritual to enjoy a bowl shortly before bedtime, mostly because I canâ€™t stand waking up hungry in the dead of night.
For a long time Cinnamon-Raisin Kashi was my cereal of choice, but lately Iâ€™ve been hankering for something thatâ€™s not so deafeningly crunchy, and perhaps a little sweeter. Iâ€™ve been sampling varieties that tend to be more â€œflake-based,â€ ideally involving some combination of honey, granola and/or oats, enhanced with nuts, raisins and/or some other dried fruit. Iâ€™m not the hugest fans of heavily sugared â€œkiddieâ€ cereals, but Iâ€™m open-minded in my question: What kind of breakfast cereal tastes the best?
Speaking of cereal, probably the best writing I can think of on the subject of is Cryptonomicon author Neal Stephensonâ€™s observations on Capâ€™n Crunch.
