N Cereal AA: The Final Four
Frosted Flakes vs. Honey Bunches of Oats. Honey Bunches of Oats is what I buy so that I can tell myself that cereal isn't just a sugary snack. Frosted Flakes dispenses with that fiction, so, although in a vacuum I actually prefer it, it's HBoO I end up buying. Don't get me wrong — it's a delicious cereal on its own merits (and it mixes really well with yogurt, if you like that sort of thing, which I occasionally do). But I suspect that its ability to pass as a component in a healthy breakfast may give it an edge here…although Frosted Flakes could take that gr(rrrrrr)ound back with nostalgia. I can't even say how I'll vote; as to how you'll vote, I think it's Flakes for the win.

Honey Nut Cheerios v. Cinnamon Toast Crunch. If you had told me in the first round that Cinnamon Toast Crunch would make it to the Final Four, I would have told you that you were high (possibly on that brown dust they use to coat Cinnamon Toast Crunch). The fact that it has survived so many potential eliminations proves one thing definitively: I have no idea WHAT you-all are going to do. I want to say that Honey Nut Cheerios will take this round, but given the view that General Mills has changed its formula for the worse, have enough of you turned against it to end its run? I think not…but I'm not that confident about it.
