1. 13. Bran Flakes
Dig in and pour yourself a bowl of tasteless cardboard. Sure you can chuck some berries on it, but it will still taste bland. Wake up to the UK’s most mundane cereal.
2. 12. Shreddies
Shreddies are almost as boring as Branflakes. They are possibly the most overrated cereal. Nestle have exploited some grannies to knit them, which does not make them more appealing. If anything, it’s just a bit creepy.
3. 11. Krave
Krave is far too sickening to be a cereal. ‘Enjoy as part of a balanced diet’- fine, so long as the rest of your diet consists of pumpkin seeds.
4. 10. Cornflakes
Cornflakes are the cereal that’s always just lurking in the back of the cupboard and probably going stale. No matter how you try to dress yours up, they are still dull.
5. 9. Rice Krispies
A classic cereal, but we’re not entirely sure why. Does anyone actually enjoy noisy food? Who really gets excited by the ‘snap crackle and pop’ of their cereal at 8 in the morning?
6. 8. Sugar Puffs
Is this delicious cereal really just popcorn in disguise? The Honey Monster scrapes it into the top 10, but only just. The sugar puff’s main downfall is that if you don’t eat them quick enough they turn into a sad soggy mush.
7. 7. Frosties
Frosties are the cereal that you have to fight for in the variety packs. A little more special than your average Cornflake, but not quite satisfying enough to cut the top 5.
8. 6. Golden Nuggets
These were probably the cereal that you weren’t allowed too much of as a kid, but that happy green banner at the top ‘guarantees’ some goodness in this cereal. A bit of a treat anytime of day.
9. 5. Porridge
It may look a little like vomit, but porridge is perfect on a cold Winter’s morning with a little golden syrup on top. Ideal for those of us who have a little more time on our hands in the morning, unless you eat it from a packet. But that’s just weird.
10. 4. Honey Loops
Forget Honey Cheerios, Honey Loops are where it’s at. These are so more-ish that you can easily get through a box in one day. No need to feel guilty about how healthy they are, because they’re actually high in fibre AND in wholegrain. (Apparently.) Perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
11. 3. Special K Creamy Berry Crunch
Although you don’t get as much in the box, the combination of berries with the creamy yoghurty bits put this cereal at number 3. You might even trick yourself into thinking it’s really healthy, too.
12. 2. Weetos
Remember Professor Weetos? This cereal is not just for kids. Weetos might cut the roof of your mouth just a little, but they are O-so addictive! Crunchy, chocolately and good value for money- they fully deserve second place.
