National Cereal Day: Pick your favorite and just add milk

Mary Pickels
Cereal, it’s not just for breakfast.
Oh, the choices to make on National Cereal Day.

Today is National Cereal Day.

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.

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.

It’s not just for breakfast any more.

And, seriously … we all love it.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
