One day last week  I gave Jaclyn a call mid-afternoon.  At the time, I had just polished off my third bowl of Lucky Charms (don't judge me).  Jaclyn, oddly enough, was working on a bowl of Frosted Flakes or Apple Cinnamon Cheerios.  She can't remember (and, remember, it's perfectly okay if you choose to judge her).  So, the next morning, on the daily "TAD" POLL, I asked WBKR Waking Crew listeners this question:  What is your favorite childhood cereal that you still eat as an adult?  We had a huge response at the WBKR Facebook page, so I decided to do an informal tally of the responses to find out YOUR Top 5 Cereals!  And, here they are . . . and I must say.  Number one was a total surprise.  And no, that's not a pun.  It wasn't Total (I mean, who ate that as a kid?  Uh . . . NO ONE!).

Okay, so you actually voted for Sugar Smacks, but it's the same cereal.  Over the years, Kellogg's has just changed its name more than Prince changed his.  I guess you could say it's the Cereal Formerly Known as Sugar Smacks.

I must confess, I am with you guys!  I can sit down an eat an entire box of Cocoa Pebbles without stopping and Lucky Charms are one of my guilty pleasures.  In fact. when I was a kid, I would eat all the whole-grain kernels and leave the marshmallows for last.  I still do it!  In fact, I did it last week three times . . . right before I called the ditz.

You guys love you some Pebbles.  You like them Cocoa and you like them Fruity.  As a kid, this was probably my personal favorite cereal.  And I really do still enjoy them.  I just can't really eat them anymore.  There's just something about them that makes me . . . well, nevermind.  If you share this problem with me, you'll know what I am talking about.  If you don't suffer the same gastro-intestinal issues I do after eating Fruit Pebbles, then a pox on your colon!   I am SO jealous!!

Hands down!  This was your CLEAR favorite!  WBKR listeners love them some Cap'n Crunch!  Some of you are purists and love the original formula.  Some of you are a little frisky and like yours with Crunchberries.  While Erin Grant complained that Cap'n Crunch cereal scrapes the roof of her mouth, you guys made it known!  The Cap'n is the man of BKR land.  And, here's my question for Erin . . . who taught you how to eat?  How do you scrape the roof of your mouth with cereal?  Are you that kid in The Jungle Book?  Have you heard of a spoon??
