Sweet breakfast cereals are nothing new. I remember having Lucky Charms as a kid and only eating the marshmallows. Who wanted that oat cereal that floated between the pink hearts and yellow stars anyway? But it has gotten much worse.
In addition to the usual suspects of sugary cereals – and their extensions like Chocolate Frosted Flakes – licensed brands have come to the cereal aisle. The whole line of Nabisco classics like Oreos, Chips Ahoy and Nutter Butters are all available for breakfast. Hostess mini donuts – already kind of a breakfast – are now in cereal form. And the worst of all, Peeps cereal. It is a marshmallow flavored cereal. With marshmallows!
