Which cereal does not get soggy?

I prefer healthier ones - not the fruity pebbles, cocoa puffs, or lucky charms. I'm tired of eating cereal that is mushy minutes after the milk is poured.

  1. I agree with you! Have you tried Oatmeal Squares - or the organic Puffins?

      I specifically clicked on this post to suggest Quaker Oatmeal Squares! It takes forever for them to get soggy, and they're big enough to be little snacks, like crackers or tiny cookies.

    2. Oaty Bites! They're probably in the organic section of your grocery store, but they're a little like Crispix except they stay crispier longer - they're the best.

      1. Heart to Heart by Kashi stays nice and crunchy in milk

          Ditto! It's replaced Cheerios as my go-to breakfast cereal. Good snack out of the box, too. My wife likes Kashi "Good Friends", which also retains its crispness pretty well.

            I'll look for that one, thanks!

        2. Grapenuts takes a while to get mushy.

              OMG, thats so funny....I lost a filling once eating it.

              Hey...my favorite cold-cereal treat is to spread a spoon of sugar and then a good dose of either top milk or half-and-half over a bowl of Grape Nuts, and then let it sit while I have a cup of coffee. That's something I fell in love with back before I was even drinking coffee...

            3. Wasn't there a cereal a while back that made that an advertising point, that it doesn't get soggy in milk? I think it was Crispix? (BTW, it did get soggy, but much later than normal cereals.)

                Cap'n Crunch stays crunchy, even in milk.

                As does Gritty Kitty kitty litter.

                  Crispix does soften but unless you eat one piece at a time it doesn't really get soggy.

                  Puffins are awesome as a snack, but not with milk in a bowl!
