National Cereal Day: Pick your favorite and just add milk
Whether you eat it straight out of the box or from a big bowl brimming with milk, cereal lovers, today is your lucky day.
Speaking of lucky … fish out the colorful marshmallow shapes from your special edition Lucky Charms.

Or go all grown-up and pretend you are eating that Raisin Bran for the (sugar-coated) raisins. Or maybe turn 6 again and sneak some more sugar into your sweetened cereal.

Enjoy your favorite breakfast food all day long. As one of America’s favorite comedians taught us, it’s a (somewhat) nourishing, no assembly required any time of the day meal.
How many times a year would you say you eat cereal for dinner, mostly because you're too lazy to make something else or don't have the time?

In celebration of the day, BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse (with a couple of Pittsburgh area locations) is launching a new cereal Pizookie. It’s a like a giant cereal cookie baked in a deep-dish pan and topped with ice cream.
Hey, why shouldn’t cereal be part of your dessert? If you’re going to indulge, at least the cereal makes it seem somewhat healthy. Just keep telling yourself that.
No need to guess — we’ve got the scoop. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch version features a buttery sugar cookie topped with vanilla bean ice cream. Got a craving? Satisfy it in the McCandless and Upper St. Clair restaurants. The treat will be available starting today and for a limited time only.
Cereal is increasingly finding its way into snack foods and baked goods, increasing the options for those of us hooked on the childhood fave.

#NationalCerealDay has me all nostalgic for Saturday AM cartoons w/a big bowl of #LuckyCharms. Which cereal was your favorite when you were a kid? #iamup #wfaa @News8Daybreak @GeneralMills pic.twitter.com/7vlb4KsXdh
