Some things in life are hidden treasures… like Hidden Treasures cereal. Other things can cause mental, physical, emotional, and medical anguish. These breakfast cereal would have probably led children to an infinite total of dentist trips had they remained on the market.
So from a sophisticated, elderly-minded American who prefers Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Waffle Crisp, Cheerios, and Corn Flakes, here are the five worst breakfast cereals of all-time.
Fifth Worst Breakfast Cereals: Pop Tarts Crunch
I remember having this a few times as a child, and one of the flavors was cinnamon. Thing is, I don’t remember if I enjoyed it or not. For me to forget an experience with anything cinnamon flavored suggests that it wasn’t that great (and the Strawberry version was pretty bad), but I’d like a second go with this product.
Fourth Worst Breakfast Cereals: Pebbles (Fruity & CoCo)
Maybe the Pebbles were just too old-school for me, but I couldn’t indulge in these products.I’m not a fan of flavored milk (chocolate is okay), and fruity milk is even worse. Pebbles got soggy within seconds and the milk was contaminated almost instantaneously. The Pebbles experience just continued Southward as the milk became fruitier and warmer with every bite.
Guess I’m more of a “Fake fruit” in my cheerios (or putting real fruit in it) type of man.
Third Worst Breakfast Cereals: Mini-Wheats
Want to eat nails for breakfast? Try some Mini Wheats. This cereal wouldn’t get too soggy, but it was too crunchy and nothing overly fantastic. The sugar coating was barely noticeable, and I never enjoyed the fruity inner layers while crunching through the nails-like wheat. Frosted Flakes trumps this junk.
Second Worst Breakfast Cereals: Cookie Crisp
Honestly? Never seen anyone eat this. Despite it being a children’s cereal that revolved around chocolate chip cookies and milk, I’ve never noticed the appeal or felt any need to try it… Whooooooooooooo cares?
Even the packaging makes it look unattractive. If marketing can’t make a breakfast concoction featuring chocolate chip cookies and milk look tasty on the packaging, I can only imagine how bland the product is. That, and it’s not very nutritious, similar to my choice for worst breakfast cereal of all-time…
Worst Breakfast Cereals: Oreo O’s
Oreos for breakfast? Make this your breakfast selection for a year straight, and you’ll know what “The Beets” meant when they sang,
“I eat my sugar cereal, but it makes my teeth bacterial!”
I enjoy Oreos, but this was like consuming a bowl of cremeless, smashed-up Oreos. The cereal had little dibs of cream implanted on the exterior, but it was hardly noticeable after being soaked in milk.
The worst part of Oreo O’s was it’s reaction with teeth. Oreo O’s made the roof of my mouth and gum lines soar for hours. I will give it some credit… Oreo O’s was best when eaten out of the box with a glass of milk… as a snack, not breakfast. Oreo O’s just proved what everyone already knew: people eat Oreo’s for the cream, not the cookies.
HONORABLE MENTIONS: Trix, Kix, Anything that gets soggy or disintegrates when in milk, any fake brand of Cheerios
