    I'd be more upset if I found bangers and mash in my cereal.

    Well you can debate differing tastes all you like, but the real point here, is that the concept of "Breakfast Cereal" we are talking about is actually a US thing and all the big players in this are US Companies/Producers.

    If you were talking about a British Breakfast - then Porridge or oats - based things are more traditionally British ...

    So the title of this thread should be along the lines of "Kids find that US Cereal really Sucks" ... :D

    Since the largest food company in the world is Swiss, you may be able to direct the shots at them instead.

    Who's that then?

    As I said, if you go in any British supermarket you will see the shelves flooded with Kelloggs products...

    PS I was only correcting the inherent bias of the original post in this thread!! ;)

    *prepares for barrage of 'fish and chips' comments* :D

    Nick, are you a family guy fan?

    'Oh no! My lunch was in that hat! Egg and chips and jam butties!'

    seriously, I accept and completely understand the world view of british food. Nick, stop trying to open the floodgates! :p

    although it's not ALLLLL bad.
