The 52 Best Breakfast Cereals of All Time

Breakfast cereals have been popular ever since Will Keith Kellogg invented Corn Flakes. Since then, cereal has taken many forms, and become popular in many countries.

When I was little, I used to get a mixing bowl and fill it with several kinds of cereal. I would then sit on the heater vent in the living room, turn on some cartoons and feast away. Oh childhood obesity; good times.

I've attempted to put together a list of WHAT I feel are the best breakfast cereals of all time. Of course I've probably missed some, and of course you aren't going to agree completely, but remember that lists are subjective and far from perfect.
