I ran out of Sanitarium Weetbix recently and Weet-a-bix makes a poor substitute. They’re like substituting Promite for Marmite plus they have a dry taste. So I’ve switched back to the Milo Cereal in part due to the ingredients.
I was brought up putting fruit on my cereal and have observed my peers putting sugar on theirs and I’ve tried that once in while. Cut bananas, pears and peaches along with milk are my favourite breakfast cereal additions.
I’ve heard Bran is the best cereal due to high fibre content. However the taste factor isn’t there for me and adding any of my favourite fruits to it doesn’t seem to change that fact.
The Cerear and the Kellog’s Cornflakes here taste like they’ve had sugar added compared with the Western versions which would come as no surprise considering the taste of most Taiwanese bread.
I’d like to eat the Muesli’s here but the price seems ridiculous. I’m willing to buy it once in a while.
That’s enough self-indulgence. What breakfast cereals do you eat and why?
I usually get Raisin Bran from Costco. Sometimes I get the Quaker Oats, or Frosted Mini Wheats. They all come in a big box, but they have two individually wrapped packages inside. Sometimes I add a banana.
Cereal is great for those of us who hate to cook. It’s true. They’re Great!
[quote=“Limey”]Machtick man you mentioned the Sanitarium brand. I’ve only seen that in Australia. Can you get it here?
[/quote]I’m not sure. A friend of mine brought me a large box from New Zealand. I think I’ve seen it in Tesco’s here. I know where I can get Sanitarium Marmite in the small jars though. I’ve never tried the English version of Marmite.
I cook my own slow oats (in winter) and buy that Australian muesli at Welcome in summer. I used to think it was expensive too till I figured out that it was only costing about NT20-30 per serving. So I’m spending NT600-900 a month on cereal and a little more on soya milk. Big deal. What would it cost to eat out?
Really though, I personally think cereal is a waste of time. Eat it and you’re hungry ten minutes later. Bacon and eggs are good once in a while. I teach at 2 pm though so it doesn’t really enter into the equation. First meals for me now are ramien noodles, kimchi, sometimes rice or kimbap. Sometimes sausages and eggs.

Not very healthy, huh? But mighty delish![/quote]
I would recommend that you try Fresh Delight which has brown livery. (the skim version has blue). Anyway apparently they massage the cows or something like that “Hokkaido Style”. Its more expensive than normal milk but the difference is worth it. I’m completely addicted now and drinking almost 2 L per day.
