I've had this rant with almost everyone I know, and wanted to see what the NFLDC had to say about things.

Here's my situation - I think that having raisins in cereal is basically heresy. They're almost exclusively in oaty crunchy cereals, and totally mess up the consistency of the meal. You're crunching happily through flakes and nuts when all of a sudden your jaw hits a raisin roadblock. It isn't right today, it won't be right tomorrow, and I'm sick of being made to feel like a leper when I tell people this. Maybe I'm just ahead of my time.

Yeah man I'm not too sure about your theory here. Raisin Bran is pretty damn good.

This is exactly the kind of insanity I'm talking about. The words 'raisin' and 'crunch' have no business together.

I ******* love this cereal. But i go in and i pick out all the raisins. No joke, it doesn't take long actually, in about five minutes you have Raisin Bran Crunch - Raisins.

Raisin Bran is really good, but this stuff is near perfection:

What does freedom have to do with fruit? I add fresh strawberries, blueberries and bananas to my cereal all the time?

I'm too lazy to pick them out if I have cereal with it, but keep those ************* out of my cereal.

If I eat cereal, which I almost never do, it is going to be terrible for me. No fruit for me.....Reese's Puffs ftw!

I have tried the banana, strawberry, blueberry stuff with other cereals. Not for me. I love fruit too, just not in my cereal. I have never tried any fruit with the Reese's tho......

Oreo O's were another winner until they discontinued them, probably because they were so damn unhealthy.

I can do dried fruits, just not fresh.

I love that stuff, all dried fruit kicks ass, and when mixed with cereal, pure win

I stick to the chocolate variety. I want a crunch-tastic experience in my mouth while I consume my cereal, not an annoying chewy-chew one.

I don't mind any fruit by itself though. Just keep it away from my cocoa and reeses puffs.

Raisins are the grossest **** ever seen on earth. They don't belong near anything as they ruin everything they touch. Fresh fruits are okay.

Greatness in a box.

And you can add sliced bananas.
For even more banana madness.

The poll is confusing.


First choice is 'raisins/fruit have no place in cereal'. Raisins have no place in cereal at all, but Banana's and/or Strawberries are a huge WIN. I love both of those, but Raisins are ******* nasty to me.

I'm a purist - cereal should contain nothing but chocolate and/or wheaty oaty crunch bits.

I love raisins. If I ever have those little boxes (which isn't too often) sometimes I'll add one to my raisin bran. I don't think there is enough raisin in raisin bran as it comes.

Fruit in cereal is a ploy for little kids to actually get fruit in their diets.

Only fruit in my cereal are loops!

I don't care at all about cereal.

Thankfully, this poll doesn't exclude me because it allows me to express my hatred of freedom by voting.

So how do you feel about some delicious motha****in' irony in your cereal?
