Adult cereals? I'd love to try some...

There I was, wandering around Sainsbury's on Saturday when I came across this titillating piece of signage. (Pardon the expression.)

Adult cereals? The mind boggles. Of course, it's simply the section where the cereals aren't drowned in sugar, smothered in chocolate or look as if they've been irradiated.

(Actually, with our current obesity epidemic, these are precisely the shelves where we should be buying our kids' breakfast cereals.)

But cereals for adults? What can you buy there? Ready Breast? Pornflakes? Crunchy Nuts, naturally.

And then it came to me. This is where you get your oats.

Anybody else got any good adult cereal suggestions?


  1. I remember the first time I saw breakfast cereals split into Adult Cereals and Children's Cereals. I was quite shocked, but immediately saw the benefits for my own boys (9 and 11) - I explained that the Children's aisle was full of crap food and the better cereals were kept in the Adult aisle.

    And now my boys prefer Weetabix to Coco Pops. Result!!

  2. Glad I'm not the only one who was bothered by this:


    I don't think I can better the pornflakes pun though...
