    What's your preference? I've just tried a 50-50 and I don't want it any other way!

    I thought you were talking about breakfast food and was going to suggest Raisin Bran.

    I don't eat either, but muesli just because of the name ...

    I have never called it muesli. That sounds like a nasty dose from a rottten-crotch.

    Mueseli for me. It works cold and hot and has more flavor and textural variety outside of being sweet like granola.

    Organic steel cut oatmeal for me.

    I don’t use chorus either … ever.

    Just say you hate the Swiss: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muesli

    Originally known in Swiss German as Birchermüesli or simply Müesli, the word is an Alemannic diminutive of Mues (non-Swiss Standard German: Mus) which means "mush" or "purée".​

    Great stuff!
    I like both, though I prefer muesli.
    It’s not as sweet.

    They both remind me of food suitable for rodents.

    However I much prefer muesli, with a sliced banana to provide something resembling flavour.

    I'm spoiled and switch off. My wife and one son often make both home made. They with all my kids and sometimes me pursue all the seasonal fruits and berries.

    No commercial versions nail down the granola flavors and textures my wife does.

    The cold raw muesli is a different than what stores offer. Her mom is German and most of her relatives are in or near Germany, Luxembourg or France so I assume what people think is unusual here is more common there.

    It's super cool to have 17 - 20 year old foodies who seek best possible ingredients and make great stuff.

    If you have access to a COSTCO, try this.

    Muesli or porridge. Once in a while only corn flakes or Chex will do. Grape nuts but only warm.

    Never granola.

    I actually like fermented Scottish oats in the morning. No joke.

    I eat mine most mornings for breakfast over fruit and Fage Greek plain Yoghurt. Fruits vary. Sometimes it's mango. I prefer Haitian in season. I also like pomegranate, Hawaiian papaya or berries, especially blackberries from my berry patch. Maple syrup as shown is way too sweet for my taste.

    Have you been to Scotland [, laddie]?

    I was at the Univ of Manchester for five years and would often go up to Scotland, usually Edinburgh. One time was for a conference and they put on breakfast for us, including authentic porridge. Before I took a look at it I thought, "oh boy, oatmeal in Scotland, this is going to be the best ever, the real thing."

    Gruel... Thin. Runny. Grey. Extremely salty. I think it must have been just oats and salt. Hope yours is better!
