So, once you get it home, do you keep it in the box? Or pour it into another plastic box that takes up just as much space, but makes it get all caked into the bottom corners because nobody dries it properly before pouring more cereal into the damp container?

AND, we must never mix cereals together in said container. Nobody wants to find raisins or bran in their corn flakes, frosted or otherwise.

I keep mine in the boxes. With 2 young hungry boys and myself, they never go stale!

It doesn't seem to have anything remotely to do with freshness. The pantry warden has simply decided that plastic boxes are preferable to cardboard. I can't rationalize the difference based on anything remotely logical, and one must pick one's battles. I simply come here for just a small bit of pity

Yes, my warden has deemed similar vessels to be required too. No idea why they're in there, but FU cardboard boxes, we've got Cereal Condos up in herrrrr.

With @ 10 boxes minimum around here at any given moment, if said Mrs were to try and insist on containers, I'd bring out the "but it's not worth it financially"...
I do have a couple of those for cookies tho.

Been killing some Lucky Charms and Cap'n Crunch Peanut Butter. Since the weather has warmed up, there's just something about a big bowl of cereal in cold milk.....

I admit that the serving size isn't equal, but if you were using the listed serving sizes, CC has the same carbs, more fiber and fewer calories than Special K.

Full disclosure, I'm currently eating a bowl of Special K with honey drizzled all over it.

Okay, now I'm kinda pissed. Can no government agency actually create a uniform test?! Why is one cereal allowed to use a different serving size? It's more like manufacturer tread wear ratings, just throw any number on there, no one cares.

Just rode 36 miles and burned 1,200 calories. That bowl of Special K was negated about five miles in.
