The New Standard In Breakfast Cereal Ranking

Illustration for article titled The New Standard In Breakfast Cereal Ranking

Social psychologist Erika D. Price put no thought into and indeed does not stand by the cereal ranking system she’s devised. Here at Snacktaku we think she’s onto something, though Smorz needs to be higher on the list.


Choice of breakfast cereal is a deeply personal thing of course, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t need a completely arbitrary and biased ranking system. Big Cereal wields a lot of power, and someone needs to keep them in check.

General Mills needs to know that Kix are only purchased to fill the snackie cups of toddlers when the Cheerios run out. Post should be informed about how eating Honey-Comb is akin to eating slightly sweetened styrofoam. Maybe a list like this would urge Kellogg’s to figure out how to make Corn Pops last more than half a second in milk before dissolving into paste.

Where does your favorite cereal fall on the God-Shit Cereal Scale? And be honest. They can’t all be God Tier.
