Reese's peanut butter puffs! Haha, those are super delicious and addicting.

But aside from that, Nature's Path has a good line of some vegan cereals I have enjoyed.

It's kinda spendy ($6 a box where I am) but Food For Life Ezekial 4:9 Golden Flax is my favorite morning cereal. They've also got it in almond, raisin, and original varieties. I also love Mom's Best shredded wheat. Both completely vegan.



It really depends on your taste though. I have really "plain" taste you could say, nothing sugary/sweet. If you do like the sugary/sweet cereals though, really read the ingredients list. A lot of them have gelatin, especially the frosted varieties.

Working days it's hot scottish oats with flax and dried cranberries, or shredded wheat and almond milk. I like sweet cereals just plain. Aldis Millville brand has a lot of sweetened cereals that are vegan, my fave is the one like Reeses, I also like the apple cinnamon oats.

I think Corn Pops are vegan-?

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

And Raisin Bran is my go-to cereal.

I love love love the Kashi Autumn Harvest. It's kinda like shredded wheat, but with a touch of sweetness, so it's way better. I just found a ginormous box of it yesterday at Big Lots for $6! I'm more like you in that I like more plain cereals, and my fiancee is like your hubby with the sugar. But we both like it.

Sugary...



EnviroKids Organics has SUPER CUTE cereal boxes. Peanut Butter Panda Puffs. Chocolate Koala Crisp. Leaping Lemurs Chocolate ad Peanut Butter swirl. Gorilla Munch. They also have "normal", non-childlish ones. The full list is here.



And Annie's Homegrown has bunny cereal (oh so cute!). All but one are vegan. I think they sell them online, too. *checks* Yep. Here.



(Can you tell I'm such a [strike]kid[/strike] small child inside? This upcoming August is going to be rough.)

Just a heads-up...



I emailed Kellogg's a while back to inquire about the "vegan-ness" of all of their cereals. The representative informed me that due to the unpredictable sourcing of Vitamin D at production time, only three of their cereals could ever truly be considered vegan 100% of the time. These three cereals are Special K Red Berries, Special K Protein Plus, and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size.



The Vitamin D is occasionally Vitamin D3 derived from lanolin (sheep's wool). So, unfortunately, Froot Loops and Raisin Bran (and the other Kellogg's cereals listed on PETA's "accidentally vegan" list) are NOT veg*n.



I like the Special K cereals, but they both have high fructose corn syrup in them. Sadly, I can't afford the organic cereals, so I try to steer clear of HFCS in everything else I eat.

Not sure where you are from but my local Aldi stores just starting carrying them this week for cheap!! It's a "special buy" so I'm not sure how long exactly they will be around. They were around $2 something or maybe a little less.

Fruity pebbles, really? sounds good.



i have been on a cereal binge lately. i never used to eat cereal, because i really didn't like milk. why i didn't try soy milk earlier is beyond me. i love cheerios. i think that is the junkiest food i eat because it is so processed. everyone makes fun of me because i either have a bad of trail mix or a bag of cheerios in my purse at all times. just in case.

I'm in Canada. And that is one killer deal you got there - the boxes are from 5/6 dollars and up at the grocery stores where I am. It is very expensive to me.

Thanks for the info. I only buy store-brand cereals (except for the Quaker Oatmeal Squares) so I will definitely try to find out from where the Vit. D is coming from in the ones I buy.
