    Candy for breakfast wasn’t legal in my house. My step mother once bought the Oreo cereal as a threat to anyone in the house that would choose such an unhealthy cereal for breakfast instead of a healthy one. Everyone was aware that eating that cereal was an death sentence and not because of the sugar. The box sat on the shelf for YEARS while no one touched it. Fear of a step mother is a powerful thing.

    Even though we all know cereal isn't the healthiest food, BIG THANKS, John for not telling us that. Love mixing Cap'n Crunch, Rice Krispies and Chereos together with banana and cold, cold, cold milk!😎

    Cap'n Crunch was great just the way it was. Who the hell wanted Crunch Berries? But they were great! And then Crunch Berries cereal without ANY Cap'n Crunch?! Sacrilege! But it was great! Lucky Charms added new marshmallow shapes ten, twenty years ago. What have you done for me lately?

    Growing up we couldn’t even ask my mom for cereal with more than 9 grams of sugar in it. Had to go to my Aunt Cathy for a lucky charms fix! She would hook me up with cotton candy too. God that woman is a saint!!!!

    You know that all the writers on this show were born after 1990 when your topic is about needing new cereal. That 90s nostalgia hits hard and rings true

  • robconnect2

    Come on John, there are more important things you could be covering. You know this was just a filler. Don't tell you are getting sensored.

    Not gonna lie. A nighttime cereal, even more of a thinly veiled dessert, would be amazing. But then, I'd also love for a caramel flavored addition to the Count Chocula/Boo-Berry/Frankenberry lineup. But then, I still want them to bring Count Chocula back year round so I'm not filling the back of a freaking pickup truck with the stuff in october to last me year round. Why? Because I have access to adult money and that was a mistake nobody has seen fit to correct yet.

    Actually, I think an insect shaped cereal would be a great idea. Actually, have several different insect shapes and make them all different flavors. (I'd have to think more about what insects get what flavors. But it's after 2 in the morning, so I don't think I can do that right now.)

    Of course, cereal has a higher glycemic index than even sugar, do don't eat if you are one of the 88% of Americans who are metabolically unwell (U of N. Carolina research), or you will hasten your demise. The human body does not require carbohydrates.

    Cheerios responded saying they could not drop an F-Bomb but are donating $50,000 to No Kid Hungry and would donate $50,000 to a charity of John Oliver's choice if John tweets, "Family make good go round." Fucking savage. They quadrupled his offer.

    Try mixing your cereal--opens up so many great combinations! (Wasn't expecting the language from John Oliver because I've only seen him on TV and the cute video with Cookie Monster.)

    Soooo, what about the milk of the cereal? There are only 2 kinds of people in the world, those who drink there cereal milk and those who dont ! 20 yrs.ago I came up with the idea of bottling cereal flavor milk. Think about it you could have Boo-beery milk anytime you wanted or any favorite flavor you want. All them flavors "They would be Great" Hey John Oliver the best cereal ever made,you should try(but you have to order it from the maker,not sold in stores any more that I know of.) QUISP cereal by Quaker enjoy and keep up the great work you do. -Cereal Lover

    If the term "cereal scientist" would have been dropped within a 1km radius around me in the first twenty years of my life my future would be set

    My winning idea for a new cereal: pre-soaked cereal. It comes in a bottle. Milk mixed with the cereal. Just open the bottle, pour out the mixture, and eat that mushy, cold mixture of grain and milk that you so hate. Why mix the cereal with milk yourself and wait for it to turn into a weak porrige? Buy it pre-made. It'll be equally disgusting as the home-made version, but you'll save time by buying it ready-made.

  • MyDearKyoKun

    Just let the national Danish TV station, resposible for John Dillermand, work their magic. I cannot guarantee you that it won't involve cereal shaped like sex organs, but it will be innovative!

    • Sloth on Caffeine
      Sloth on Caffeine

      I can already picture the commercial: the cereal on a plate, Dillerman grabbing his you-know-what, and oozing his milk on the cereal. A couple of kids eating the cereal, looking into the camera and saying how good it tastes, both with a milk moustache on their faces.

A voice interjects the scene, "Timmy time for breakfast!" *Zoom out from am imagination bubble* Timmy puts down his book and runs to the table for a bowl of INSERT CATCHY CEREAL. "YUM! Thanks mom." *partofacompletebreakfastbswehavetosay* Fin.

    Goth cereal: headstone-shaped black cereal chunks that taste like coffee (and basically make iced frap when they soak in milk).

      Sounds delicious. Maybe too delicious for goths. How about making the cereal out of charcoal instead.
