For pretty much most of my childhood, breakfast consisted of some sort of cereal. I can't remember all the varieties we ate, but I think Captain Crunch was a favorite if my memory serves me correctly.

There was a time we substituted real milk for powdered milk. I actually got used to the taste believe it or not. In my adult years, I shied away from cereal in favor of other breakfast meals.

But there have been a couple of times I went back to cereal, but each time, I substituted whole milk with skim milk. Or is skim milk now referred to as no-fat milk?  Whatever. It's also an acquired taste.

It's a healthy choice, and frankly, I love the taste of cereal. My favorites are Honey Nut Cheerios, Raisin Bran, and Frosted Mini-Wheats.

There are so many types of cereals available today, so I thought I'd pose the question on social media if adults still eat cereal and if so, what kind. Surprisingly to me, I got quite a few responses.

And it's interesting to note, that there isn't just one type of cereal that is the favorite of others, although there was more than one vote for Cheerios. Here are some of the types of cereal people in the Southern Tier of New York and Northeast Pennsylvania are eating.
