Which would you pick?

Every morning I open my cupboard door and look at my's always some kind of sugary cereal and then it's my high in fiber cereal that's been recommended by a doctor for me to consume.  I won't go into specifics...but when you get older you need something to get you going or to keep up with the pace you once had!  So with that being said, I need to eat my Fiber One cereal everyday to get at least 35% of my daily intake.  

When I am chewing my high in fiber cereal, I think of Junie B. Jones (who I read a lot to my kindergarteners) when she says, "Fibers are good for you, they won't get you all jazzied up".  Well...most days I can honestly eat my fibers, but when we have Reece's Puffs...oh, I can hardly stand it!  I secretly (well...not any more) like three chocolate, sugary, kid-oriented cereals....Reece's Puffs, of course, S'more Crunch (discontinued, so sad!) and Count Chocula.  The last is easy to understand if you know about my recent vampire fetish thanks to Stephenie Meyer's Twilight books.  

Anyway, I love those Reece's Puffs, but the one thing that makes me pass them up is that I am ravenous within an hour of eating it and there's nothing worse than being extremely hungry during my Literacy Workstations.  I am curious to hear what's your favorite cereal, please post under comments!

so funny about the count chocula!

captain crunch, corn pops, life and yogurt-burst cheerios. though none of the above are as good as eggs over easy with hashbrowns and bacon!

I'm not a cereal eater but since you mentioned a vampire fetish I've got movie suggestions for you (if you haven't already seen them):

1. Interview with the Vampire (1994) - my favorite (although it was more enjoyable to watch back when Tom Cruise was still cool)
2. The Lost Boys (1987) - classic
3. 30 Days of Night (2007) - The vamps aren't lovable but Josh Hartnett is so pretty. LOL
4. SleepWalkers (1992) - A Stephen King adaptation. The creatures are a vamp knockoff... but close enough. It has a weird twist to it.
5. Bram Strokers Vampire (1992) - a little over produced but it's ok
6. the Forsaken (2001) - very CWish
7. The Hunger (1983) - Freaky and definitely not for kids. Has David Bowie in it.
7. The Little Vampire (2000) - a somewhat kid's movie
8. Once Bitten (1985) - a comedy with Lauren Hutton and Jim Carrey before he was well known.

As for canceled TV series:
1. Moonlight (2007)
2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (hmm... I think I feel a Buffy marathon coming on LOL)
3. Angel
4. Blade

I like honey bunches of oats and honey nut cheerios. However, I usually eat toast with peanut butter and a glass of milk for breakfast...or cake.

I don't eat cereal too much anymore. I am into what I call my "power shake". Plain yogurt, frozen fruit, wheat germ, milk and a couple of ice cubes. Whip up in the blender. Good stuff. :)
I can identify with the stomach issues, though. When I do eat cereal, I like Cheerios and Mini Wheats. I've never tried Fiber One. I'll have to give it a whirl sometime.
