    I enjoy Special K with whole cow milk.

    What is your favorite breakfast cereal, and the milk you enjoy the most?

    Disclaimer - breakfast cereals are loaded with carbs and most have terrible amounts of sugar, also cows milk is made for baby cows, not humans. Eat bacon instead.

    I also love Corn Pops... those little golden sugar bombs are delicious! :D

    Shreddies.
    Whole milk is best. Even those of us who make do with semi-skimmed know that.

    Cheerios. The regular ones. Whole milk is preferred, but wifey won't let me have anything stronger than 1%.

    Oat meal. Not mushy soup style but thick and chewy with peanut butter toast. Yumm. I don't bother with other kinds of cereals, most of which do more harm than good. Oats knock down cholesteral too. Most cold cereals are sugar laden big time.
    Skim or 1% milk is preferred these days. All the protein and none of the fat.
    I find skim more thirst quenching. Once I got used to it, whole milk seemed like drinking syrop.

    I'm partial to Raisin Bran.
    2% and an extra spoon full of sugar make it just right.

    Not a big cereal fan I eat breakfast everyday just rather eat about anything than cereal. Mostly what I eat would be considered by most as less healthy than cereal. For milk I like 2% Drank it since I was a kid. For a treat with deserts that go good with mild I'll have me some whole milk every once in a while.

    I've been eating cereal lately due to, uh, elimination issues.

    I ate Raisin Bran for a while, then Frosted Mini Wheats, now I'm trying Grape nuts. The Mini Wheats had too much sugar, the Grape nuts not enough and are too crunchy for me. Time to go back to Raisin Bran.

    Milk: Skim or 1%. Drinking whole milk to me is like drinking motor oil.

    In the spring & summer it's Weet-bix with whole milk and honey.
    autumn & winter it's porridge with whole milk & honey.

    My father-in-law is an apiarist so we get local honey for free, not that horrible amalgamated stuff you buy in the supermarket.

    Bran with raisins or Swiss muesli with semi-skimmed milk.

    But the only when I can't get a bacon butty!

    Cheerios or Oatmeal with skim milk and maybe fresh or frozen blueberries and/or bananas.

    It's part of my personal insurance policy.

    Genmai flakes. Always whole milk. I don't eat cereal that often, and don't drink a large quantity of milk, so when I have some I want the real thing.

    For hot cereal, oatmeal (medium rare) with a spoonful of chunky peanut butter and a slosh of maple syrup.
