    Cereal should NEVER be soggy. Any cereal becomes instantly disgusting as soon as it crosses the line from crunchy to soggy. That's why I either have to eat my cereal dry or really, really fast. Leads to stuff like this:

    Hubby: Can you help me for a minute?
    Me: I JUST POURED MILK ON MY CEREAL!
    Hubby: But, I'm bleeding, and...
    Me: Oh, for God's sake...(throws out cereal)

    gosh...I hope this situation doesn't happen too often in your house...all that wasted cereal!!!oh...and your poor, bleeding wife too🤣🤣🤣

    Ha, he's pretty accident prone, but to be fair, the bleeding situation/cereal chucking only happened once. But, he always seems to need SOMETHING as soon as I pour the milk...usually I just tell him he's gotta wait.

    Corn on pizza is pretty damn good... (Specifically white pizza.) And I hate chocolate ice cream.

    Cheerios (only original) are the only cereal that I eat and the only way I eat them is dry (like popcorn).

    I kinda have to have my cereal soggy these days or let it be a kind that melts in your mouth (dental issues) :)

    Your milk/cereal/hubby problem reminds me of a commercial for....chocolate?:

    Kid: Mom, I fell!
    Mom: (thoroughly having some "me" time) Get a bandaid!
    Kid: I'm bleeding!
    Mom: (pause) Get two!

    While I don't buy boxed cereals now - I too would most likely just eat as they are...or a topping on yogurt, etc.,

    I think seafood like fish, squid, clams are overrated, smells and tastes TERRIBLE.

    If you look at seafood on a menu and instead of numbers for a price, it has the letters "S.P."... then it's EXTREMELY overrated. 😊

    I like it on foods when it fits the flavor profile (like some Asian noodle dishes), but I can't understand why people want to put it on EVERYTHING. It has a very strong flavor, it's not just heat.

    I might feel differently if there weren't any added sugars to so many of the brands I've found.

    Yeah, agreed.

    There's less than 2 g of sugar in a tablespoon of sriracha (at least the kind I have), and it's not all added sugar. I can't imagine worrying about that in the context of an overall meal, but, yeah, sriracha has sugar in it, that's how it's made, even if you make it yourself at home.

    Sriracha has some sweetness, it's part of the inherent flavor profile. I get that people may prefer an unsweetened hot sauce, but a sriracha without sugar isn't sriracha.

    (I know, I know, I'm gatekeeping hot sauce. I get it's silly, but it's still true).

    I like a nice balance, and it's one of the things I strive for in my own cooking/baking efforts. A touch of acid (lemon, lime, vinegar, wine), a bit of spice, and a bit of sweet is, for me, a good collection of tastes to aim for. When I toss a salad dressing together, it's usually some kind of mustard vinagrette.

    What is everyone's opinion on best pizza chain??

    Pizza Pizza. Because 1) price 2) they were the first to offer whole wheat crust option on all sizes 3) first plant-based pizza 4) consistent preparation/quality.

    Worst would have to be Little Caesar's. We have two locations here and neither can produce a pizza that isn't nasty.
