15 Cheerios


Have you eaten Cheerios every morning since you were a kid? If you answered yes to that question, then it says the following about you. You are traditional, hardworking, and a bit of a perfectionist. You value having a stable routine, but you make sure to balance work and fun appropriately. You have an incredible work ethic and you value the people in your life about all else. On the downside, Cheerios are a bit boring which might suggest that you are lacking spontaneity in your life. You ate Cheerios as a baby before you barely had teeth and you've continued to eat the same thing for breakfast for decades. I get sticking with what you know, but you don't want to get stuck in the same boring routine. Perhaps mix it up a little by opting for Multi Grain or Honey Nut Cheerios once in a while. Or be really bold and buy some Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Lucky Charms the next time you're at the grocery store. Treat yourself!

14 Honey Bunches of Oats

If Honey Bunches of Oats is your jam, then you might just be the following type of person. You are mature and you understand the importance of balance. Honey Bunches of Oats is definitely a step up from Lucky Charms or Froot Loops, but it is not exactly sugar-free either. As you get older, adding healthy items to your diet becomes increasingly important. But enjoying life and having something sweet and sugary that tastes good is also important. Especially as a way to start your day - after all, you don't want to be grumpy all day from having some super boring ultra-healthy cereal. If you like Honey Bunches of Oats, you value the little things in life. You're level-headed, you know how to remain calm in high stress situations, and you're generally a friendly, relatable, and likeable person. Keep on eating those delicious bunches of honey-infused granola!

13 Froot Loops

Do you still pour yourselves a big bowl of Froot Loops in the morning? I bet you never realized that the fact that you eat Froot Loops says a lot about you. You are still a kid at heart. You're wild, carefree, fun-loving, and don't care that Froot Loops is basically a giant bowl of sugar. The colours are bright and shiny, just like your personality. In fact you probably wear bright clothes to match your breakfast cereal habits. Spontaneous if your middle name and you live in the moment. You also do not care what other people think, which is a rare trait to come by. After all, you're eating sugary cereal complete with toy prizes that is clearly meant for a child under the age of 6, but regardless, you continue to eat it. You definitely march to the beat of your own drum. The only issue is your carefree attitude can sometimes get you into trouble. Running late and forgetting important details is an everyday occurrence for you. But alas, at least you have the comfort of your beloved Froot Loops (just make sure to thoroughly brush your teeth before bed).

12 Rice Krispies

via: theomnicast.com

If you love Rice Krispies, it means that you have a mysterious side. To the people that do not know you, they might think that you are shy, reserved, or even rude. But once they get to know you they realize that you're actually just super cool and collected, and a total sweetheart. In fact, you actually have a great sense of humour for those that you choose to share it with. While Rice Krispies might seem a bland choice to some which could indicate that you're a little boring, you know full well that Rice Krispies are as versatile as it gets. Paired with fresh blueberries or strawberries and it becomes instantly more delicious (and healthy). Or the special edition Rice Krispies made with green and red food colouring - those are as festive as it gets. And of course, the best way of all. Adding some melted marshmallows and making the most mouthwatering no-bake treat in history: Rice Krispie Squares. Tell that to the haters next time they question your breakfast cereal choice!

11 Cap'n Crunch

via: theblaze.com

If Cap'n Crunch is your cereal poison, it means that you're a kid at heart, but also that you are quite possible a hipster. Looking to show your friends how cool and hip you are that you're an adult eating kid cereal for breakfast? Cap'n Crunch is the classic choice. That being said, it is yummy and a little less overtly kid-like than Froot Loops or Lucky Charms so it is semi-acceptable for adults to eat. If you dig deeper into the reason you continue to eat Cap'n Crunch, I bet you'll discover that it goes back to the nostalgia you have for your childhood. You're a big softie at heart and moving out of the house can be a big step. Sometimes you just want to be reminded of what it feels like to live in your childhood home with your parents and feel like a little kid again. Each bite of Cap'n Crunch takes you right back to that kitchen table.

10 Special K

via: kelloggs.com.au

If you're a fan of Special K (with or without the berries), it means that you are a busy, often stressed out person, but you're also a grown up. You are independent and understand the importance of eating healthy. Special K may not be the best option but at least the box is not covered in bright colours, kids prizes, and mascots. You might be eating Special K because you are on a diet so there is a chance you don't actually enjoy eating it, but hey, at least you're the kind of person who sticks to their guns and sees every task through to the end. If you genuinely enjoy eating Special K, then it also might suggest you are very self aware. You know your weakness (like your habit of constant snacking) so you know it is best to start the day off right so you will feel less guilty about snacking later.

9 Honey Nut Cheerios

via: foxnews.com

If you just cannot break your Honey Nut Cheerios habit, it is a clear sign that you are a classic person through and through. You are down-to-earth, you have timeless taste, and you are a generally very likeable person. You are not pretentious at all and you understand the joys of a little sweetness in your cereal. You may even be a bit of a dreamer, staring at Pinterest pages all day long an dreaming of your future travel plans or dream apartment. You are likely one of the most popular people in your friend circle. Because of your down-to-earth nature, you are easy to get along with and people love being around you. While Honey Nut Cheerios is a traditional choice, it is not boring (like its Cheerios counterpart). With a little (not a lot of) added flavour and sugar thrown in, Honey Nut Cheerios is the perfect cereal to convince yourself that you're a full blown adult.

8 Fruity Pebbles

via: recipeshubs.com

If you love Fruity Pebbles, you are a wild child. Full of surprises, the life of the party, party animal - those are the types of terms people use to describe you. You are always full of energy and there to cheer up your friends or coworkers when they need you the most. You always have a smile on your face and there are only a select number of people close to you that you will really break down in front of. You are passionate and you surround yourself with similar types of people. You are also artsy, hence the attraction to the bright colours of Fruity Pebbles. Painting, drawing, dancing, singing are all activities you enjoy any given weekend. It's also quite possible that you're a huge fan of The Flintstone's. You've dressed up as Bam Bam or Wilma on Halloween, you took Flintstone vitamins much longer than you were supposed to, and you've seen every TV episode twice (possible even the movies made in the early 2000s).

7 Reese's Puffs

via: seriouseats.com

Reese's Puffs imply that you are a passionate, indulgent, and sensitive person. Choosing a cereal as decadent as Reese's Puffs implies that you can be a little bit high maintenance from time to time but that is only because you like things a certain way. Plus, knowing what you like is a good thing. You're headstrong, confident, and you do not let anything get in the way of what you want. Speaking of which, you don't take no for an answer and you don't feel one bit guilty for eating something you enjoy. And the Reese's obsession doesn't stop here. No sir, you can often be seen snacking on Reese's Pieces or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. When the new chocolate peanut butter Reese's spread was released in grocery stores you were jumping up and down as you now had a second way to eat Reese's for breakfast. What goes better with a bowl of Reese's Puffs? A piece of toast with Reese's spread, of course!

6 Cocoa Puffs

via: walmart.com

If you enjoy a good bowl of Cocoa Puffs in the morning, you are the king of "carpe diem." You don't take life too seriously as you know that tomorrow brings another day. You are easy-going, which means you have a large circle of friends. And you are a huge fan of giving people second chances. Oh, this is an obvious one, you're also a huge chocaholic. You know how your parents and doctors used to tell you that you cannot eat chocolate for breakfast? Well you did not exactly listen. As soon you as you moved out of your parents house it was Cocoa Puffs day in and day out. After all if chocolate was not meant to be consumed for breakfast, they wouldn't have made it in cereal form, am I right? In addition to Cocoa Puffs, you have a major sweet tooth for all things chocolate, whether breakfast foods or not. From brownies and chocolate chip cookies to truffles and plain old fashioned chocolate bars, you have mated with chocolate for life and do not plan on quitting your Cocoa Puffs habit anytime soon.

5 Frosted Flakes

via: en.wikipedia.org

Frosted Flakes are the breakfast choice of someone who is adventurous, quirky, and fun-loving. You love being outdoors and staying active. From hiking to running to cycling, you are Tony the Tiger in human form. You also love playing sports. In addition to your sporty side, you have a huge heart and can be a bit goofy at times. Always busting out your Tony the Tiger impression and trying to make others laugh, you are an integral part of your friend group. Everyone in your life knows they can count on you if they need a shoulder to lean on. You are dependable without being boring. Unlike the most boring cereal in the world: Corn Flakes, Frosted Flakes are exciting and tasty, contributing to your quirky attitude.

4 Cinnamon Toast Crunch

via: marthasbackyard.co.nz

If you eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch on a regular basis, you are someone that follows their heart. You are an excitable, loving person with the opposite of a Type A personality. You are not a fan of routines and quite possible do not even eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch for breakfast. As a midnight snack, or just right out of the box whenever you feel like it are probably the most common ways that a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch gets eaten in your household. You're a bit of a college kid at heart and you miss the days of being able to eat whatever you want without consequence. That is why you enjoy eating this sweet, cinnamon bun-esque cereal at all times of the day. That being said, you are still fairly young so it is totally acceptable for you not to have your life sorted out yet. But perhaps you want to cut back to one box a week (and I'm not talking about a family sized box).

3 Raisin Bran

via: cookinglight.com

If you eat Raisin Bran on a regular basis, you are the grandma of your friend group. You are mature well beyond your years (approximately 40 years beyond your age) which means that you are the responsible and dependable one in your friend group. You are organized, efficient, and understand the importance of adding bran to your diet. That being said, you can be a bit grumpy and boring at times. When your friends want to spend a night out clubbing, you usually choose to stay in, or if you go you only have one drink (light on the gin, heavy on the tonic). There is nothing bad about being a grandma though, everyone outgrows being young at different paces. You're smart and you know what you like. Why pretend to be something you are not?

2 Frosted Mini-Wheats

via: cbsnews.com

Eating Frosted Mini Wheats for breakfast reveals that you are a bit of a homebody. You love being cozy, and Frosted Mini Wheats are your comfort food. You think they're somewhat healthy but they have that little touch of sweetness that reminds you of being a kid. There's nothing you value more than crawling into bed or lying on the couch and watching your favourite movie on a Saturday night. In addition your homebody tendencies, you are also a hard worker and you don't give up on things easily. If you're in a relationship, you're likely the rock in the relationship. Always level-headed, calm, and sturdy, you are someone that people can count on and you are good at talking people down when things get a little crazy.

1 Lucky Charms

via: money.cnn.com

If your cereal of choice is Lucky Charms, you might be surprised by what it says about you. Yes, Lucky Charms is a breakfast cereal. There's no doubt about it. But it is an oddly perfect mix of sugary and bland. The actual puffs themselves are tasteless, and if eaten alone would suggest that you were quite traditional and boring. But the added colourful freeze dried marshmallows suggest that you are childish and perhaps even a bit immature. That is why Lucky Charms is the only cereal on this list to denote two different personalities (or perhaps one very eccentric person). While you like having fun and letting loose, you also value tradition and routine. You don't like to be surprised last minute and if there is a schedule, you like to stick to it. When it comes to actually planning the schedule, however, you are easy going and are a people-pleaser. If you friend really wants to go to the beach this weekend, you'll happily agree even if it may not be your favourite thing. And once you're at the beach, you'll be the life of the party (this could be because you might have a bit of Irish in you).
