Did Our Generation Ruin Cereal (or make it awesome)?

If your mom was like mine, she was always so strict about what cereal was “healthy”. Captain Crunch, no big deal – but Cookie Crisp? I might as well have asked to drink chocolate syrup straight from the bottle.

And I’m assuming that I’m not alone in this, and it’s confirmed in the parental rebellion that is taking place on the cereal aisle at the grocery store.

Check out the gallery below for 10 cereals that are definitely telling mom, “oh candy isn’t an appropriate breakfast food? I beg to differ.”


Hey mom, can I have Sour Patch Kids for breakfast? No? Ok, what about chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers?


Ok, what about these honey buns?


All I really want though are Oreos. Can I have these for breakfast?


On second thought, what about Dippin Dots?


Peanut butter goes well with waffles, so can I just have these Nutter Butters instead?


I still want ice cream for breakfast.


But dad said I could have donuts for breakfast.


All of my other friends can have Pop Tarts, why do I have to keep eating cereal?


I think I’ll just eat that leftover banana pudding in the refrigerator instead.


I mean, there’s a Rice Krispies Treat in my lunchbox – can I just have it now?
