Especially as popular as chocolate candy bars.

I seriously start drooling every time I see these. If these existed during Halloween time when I was a kid I would easily take them over candy any day of the week.

Really? You're gonna ask that question knowing full well that you approach a person with a snickers or twix and they'll instantly recognize it, while they say "what the hell is that?" when you tell them about a cereal and milk bar?

Hell you just said you never tried them... I don't even...

So you're going to base it off one person? Did you even do research on rather or not cereal & milk bars are popular?

Cereal bars are too sweet for my taste. I generally don't care for them.

Ingredients can be sketchy...I know Special K bars have trans fat in them (less than 0.5 g per bar which is why it says there are none, but the ingredients show partially hydrogenated oils).

They are useless, if you ask me. Regular cereal is of course better; and if you don't have time to make and eat a bowl, then there are much more nutritious and better meal bars.

@SaintLeonidas: What you said is correct as well. At least with actual cereal, you get the vitamins that are added. Cereal bars don't have the added vitamins.

I've heard of those, but i never really see them.

And im not interested in it anyways.

Does the fact that i never eat my cereal with milk have something to do with it? probably not lol

I... NEVER eat cereal with milk, period. But I love cereal and milk bars. That should give you an idea how goddamn tasty they are, light years ahead of candy and chocolate. Get on it brotha, start eating them and experience a wealth of taste and emotions.

I used to eat the Frosted Flakes Bars but I have not seen them in a long time. Cereal Bars can barley keep you full and not only that, most of them are puny, only comes like 6-8 packs in a box, and back then, they were expensive a Hell. I just recommend that the old school fixing your cereal bowl+milk is the best and never get's old.

Even though I never had a cereal bar, I'm pretty sure the old school method won't get replace.

Oh wow. I used to eat these all the time. Now I usually eat those Nutri-grain bars or whatever they're called. But the cereal bars were definitely better. I loved the cheerios one, and the cocoa puffs ones were pretty good too. Yeah, I should start getting these again. Maybe they were just a bit expensive, but I actually haven't seen one in a while.
