Wherein I rank the cereal choices at the bloggerdome.

This post has nothing to do with employment law and everything to do with breakfast choices. Thus, with one finger squarely on the pulse of HR-compliance — we’ll get back to that on Monday — and another on the most important meal of the day, I bring you the Meyer breakfast cereal cabinet….ranked!

Our choices:

  • Nature Valley Baked Oat Bites (spoiler alert: dead last…I reached for another box and ended up with this)
  • Life
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  • Cocoa Puffs
  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Apple Jacks
  • Chocolate Chex
  • Cocoa Krispies
  • Kix
  • Instant Quaker Oats (not pictured)
  • Shop Rite Brand Steel Cut Oats (not pictured)

Ok, here we go…

11. Nature Valley Baked Oat Bites –  I meant to get the ones with chocolate, but I ended up with these. Awful!
10. Cocoa Krispies – I’m not 7 anymore. Even my 7-year-old won’t touch them. Indeed, I’m pretty sure we’re backing up against the sell-by date on this box.
9. Kix – Kid-tested. Yet, I tested them the other day and regretted it right away. Terrible! Only my 4-year-old will eat them.
8. Chocolate Chex – It’s not that I’m against chocolate-flavored cereals. It’s just that I don’t really like these.
7. Instant Quaker Oats – Bland. Although, when my wife cooks them with brown sugar, all four kids (and dad) will chow down!
6. Shop Rite Brand Steel Cut Oats – Bland, but healthier. But, no one in the Meyer household other than me will touch them.
5. Apple Jacks –  Last week, these would have finished in the bottom three. But, on Wednesday I had a bowl. And I got nostalgic.
4. Cocoa Puffs – My kids would rank these #1. For now, they’re number four until my kids inherit The Employer Handbook — they’ll fight each other for it, I’m sure.
3. Cinnamon Toast Crunch – So. Much. Sugar!  So. Damn. Good!
2. Honey Nut Cheerios – Healthy. Ok, healthy-ish. And just sweet enough.
1. Life – Because, I’m an adult. But, those little magic squares are fantastic!
