Fact: '80s and '90s kids like to reminisce and wax nostalgic about every possible thing. Online quizzes about which neon Lisa Frank pattern represent our truest selves? Yes. Random gif collections of Stephanie Tanner dancing? Obviously. Tumblr’s dedicated to the wardrobes of our favorite movie characters? Yes, please. And what about the food? I hope you’ve got some time, because millennials looooove talking about what we ate as kids. The cereal? Oh man. I could go down the deepest, darkest Internet rabbit hole getting nostalgic about the best cereals from the '80s and '90s.
I was a weird kid who didn’t enjoy most kinds of breakfast foods, like bacon or eggs (I know, adult-me judges kid-me too, because all of that food is clearly amazing and perfect), which left my parents with few options that didn’t include an ton of sugar (although, points for both of them because they tried, oh did they ever try). Which is what brings us to today’s topic at hand: the cereals that used to be the centerpieces of our childhood breakfasts. Here are the absolute best of those glorious morning treats that we'd all be much happier if we could still eat every day.
