10 Cereals From Your Childhood You Miss Having For Breakfast

Ah, breakfast cereals. Every bite takes us to a much, much simpler time – our childhood. Many mornings are spent in front of the television hunched over a bowl of our favourite morning breakfast indulging in some Saturday morning cartoons. Cereals are toys of the breakfast world for children. They come in all shapes, sizes and colours and are as much a treat to the palette as they are to the eyes.  So let’s take a look at some of our favourite cereal that we have come to know and love from our childhood available at honestbee.

Let’s start off with the grand-daddy of all the cereals. Kellogg’s Classic Corn Flakes is the one that started it all. What started out as a supplement food for patients at a sanitarium turned out to be the precursor to all breakfast cereals worldwide. If you like your cereals less sugary and wholesome, the Kellogg’s Classic would suit you well. Its golden flakes are crunchy and light in flavour but boy, is it oh-so-filling!

2. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies

Rice Krispies is a rice based cereal that has a long history of successful advertising, spearheaded by their three famous mascots Snap, Crackle and Pop.  Famous for the ‘Snap, Crackle and Pop’ sound that it makes when milk is poured into a bowl of Rice Krispies. The best thing about these Rice Krispies though are the many delicious confectionery treats that could be made from it.

3. Post Waffle Crisp Cereal

The thing that strikes you the most about Post’s Waffle Crisp Cereal is the very powerful and very welcoming aroma that hits you once you open the bag. The strong maple syrup aroma definitely gets your appetite going. It is how breakfast should smell. Well, it is also not only limited to its smell because it is full of maple-syrupy flavoured goodness too!

4. Nestle Milo Whole Grain Cereal

Milo has been a staple of everyone’s childhood in Singapore.  Its flavour is somewhat unique, a little malty and a little chocolatey. This very popular and versatile beverage has been a staple breakfast item for children in Singapore and also a goodnight drink for many too! Some like it iced and some like it hot, while some like it crunchy and drenched in milk. Well either ways, it’s Milo so it’s all good!

5. Nestle Koko Krunch

“And poof! It became Koko Krunch!” That was the very famous dialogue in one of Koko Krunch’s highly succesful run of television ads. Not to be confused with another breakfast cereal brand that sounds almost alike, Koko Krunch is popular amongst children in Singapore. This whole-grain, tiny bowl shaped cereals also equally as tasty and chocolatey in every bite.

6. Nestle Honey Gold Breakfast Cereal

Nestle Honey Gold Breakfast Cereal is a rather mixed bag of nuts when it comes to its popularity. It is much more appealing to adults due to its rather mature flavours. But what made it such a memorable cereal amongst children in Singapore is that it is an ingredient in many staple festive goodies in Singapore. This honey-flavoured cereal is often made into tasty confectioneries and kuehs that quite frankly, usually always flies off the shelves!

7. Kellogg’s Froot Loops Cereal

Featuring its colourful avian mascot, Toucan Sam, Kellog’s Froot Loops is a delight to the senses. Ring-shaped and very colourful, Froot Loops appeals to those with a sweet tooth with a very tart and sweet flavour profile. This has made Froot Loops very highly popular amongst the kids.

8. Nestle Honey Stars Whole Grain Cereal

Another honey-flavoured cereal in this list. Honey Star, unlike the Honey Gold Breakfast Cereal, has a taste that’s geared more towards the younger palette. It is sweeter and features none of the subtly bittersweet flavours of honey that is very apparent in the Honey Gold Breakfast Cereal. Honey Star’s popularity surged after a series of exciting space-themed television ads featuring an anthropomorphic bear called Captain Star who always saves the day.

9. Quaker Cap’n Crunch Cereal

Ah, the Quaker Cap’n Crunch Cereal. One of the more popular brand of cereals out there featuring a very jolly looking naval captain. It is also one of the more premium brands of cereal though paying a little bit extra for it is not a problem because it comes with a premium flavour profile.

10. Kellogg’s Frosties Cereal

As Tony – their world famous tiger mascot would say – it tastes grrrrrreeeeeeeat! Similar to the Kellogg’s Classic Corn Flakes Cereal, it is however coated in a sweet sugar frosting making it even more appealing to children. It is crunchy, it is flavourful and it is packed in vitamins and carbohydrate!
