I've never tried any of the cereals on that list. Should I be worried by this?

Plain traditional Rice Krispies with milk so cold it freezes ya teeth - and no sugar, that would be sacriligious. Snap Crackle & Pop rocks.

I have to admit I have never tried any of these. Actually, I've only started eating cereal on a regular basis when I moved to the US - and I generally go for the so-called 'health' varieties (not Alpen, though... I agree with Dean that it tastes a bit like tree bark). I tried Just Bunches a few months ago, but it was just too sweet for me.

Boo Berry, you gotta love any of those cereals with the Styrofoam marshmallows.  I remember as a kid this long discontinued cereal called Pink Panther.  It was flakes that turned your milk pink. LOL

since I made the mistake of putting Frosted Flakes twice I went back and replaced it with one of my favorite long discontinued cereals:

I know. One trip to London had me quite baffled. But what really made me smile was what they have in Mexico.
 
 
If I'm not mistaken the name roughly means "Little bits of sugar". But at least it makes sense since it's in another language.

Who knows? Corn Flakes are called Corn Flakes over here, so it's not as if we couldn't handle the concept of flaked corn even though technically they aren't flakes of corn but dried flakes of corn mush but then did you know that when they put a frosted coating on Rice Crispies we called it RiCiCLES?
 
Then, if Americans call a Mars Bar a Milky Way and a Milky Way a Three Musketeers then why did we have to change the name of a Marathon bar to Snickers? And did you know that the Brit Milky Way floats on water but an American one sinks?

I was at the Buford Highway Farmer's Market the other day and saw Star Trek cereal.  I had to do a double take to be sure I wasn't hallucinating.


Highly illogical, but then again...LOL

And another thing, isn't it amusing how Corn Pops used to be Sugar Corn Pops?  I guess High Fructose Corn Syrup Pops doesn't have the same ring to it.

Yeah - and in the old days Noddy was on the box, not the space cadet in your pic!

our 'Marathon bar' was a long twisty thing of choc-coated caramel that looked like a pretzel, one of my favorites as a kid.. they also tended to pull people's fillings out, maybe that's why they were discontinued Ermm

and evidently the floating Brit Milky Ways are not witches?  Glad we sorted that out.

I remember being in London (or was it Dublin) and being very afraid of the ones that had a Snickers wrapper but were called something else.. I just didn't know what I'd be getting and didn't want to waste the few pounds I had in my pocket

They look the same as the American Snickers, but about a million times sweeter than a very sweet thing.
