6. A Bowl of Cheerios

In life it's important to remember the little things.

Sometimes the right food at the right time can hit just the right spot. Case in point - a heaping bowl of Cheerios. General Mills has been delivering the same superior product since what I believe to be 1862 or so. I've loved Cheerios as a child and still to this day will often eat a bowl in place of a meal. There's nothing splashy or abrasive about eating Cheerios, it's pure whole grain, straight to your gut...POW! Throw some milk in there and you've got calcium in your stomach-piece too, muchacho. I'm no doctor, but I'm pretty sure the human body can sustain itself purely on whole grain and calcium. So basically what I'm getting at here is that Cheerios are the perfect food for both a meal and a snack. Next time thanksgiving dinner rolls around, offer up some cheerios instead of a Turkey. Everyone will thank you and probably pay you money.

Babies especially love Cheerios, I'm pretty sure every person has a picture of them as a baby with Cheerios  all over the floor, their face, and in their pants. Babies to Cheerios are like cookie monster to cookies, they love it so much that they don't care about decency anymore. The only thing important to a baby is how to get more Cheerios inside of them before they swallow the Cheerios they're already eating. As an adult you need to worry a bit more about showing your love for Cheerios, but you can still enjoy them, tactfully.
