March 7th is National Cereal Day El Paso, and I'm wondering what cereal El Pasoans LOVE the most.

Today is the day to forget your diet and pour yourself a big bowl of your favorite sugary/ chocolate wheat bits and some milk. That's right it's national cereal day and it's time to find out, in the battle of the cereals, which one reigns supreme in the heart, minds, and especially stomachs of El Pasoans. Cereals are some of the most popular breakfast foods, but they're also super popular snacks at any time of the day.

PROS: Light and fruity, each loop offers a variety of flavors. PLUS, all those colors make delicious and colorful milk you can drink at the end.

CONS: Fruit loops can get soggy pretty fast.  Best to not let this cereal sit for too long.


GRANOLA

PRO:  Full of whole grains and fiber, this cereal can keep your digestion 'regular.'

CON: Who wants to eat just granola?  Looks like you would need a blueberry at least to make this cereal palatable.
