Top Five Cereal Brands

Updated on October 1, 2011

Top Five Cereal Brands

As the old cliché goes: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” And nothing could be further from the truth. It keeps us energized physically and mentally to get our hectic day starting. The most popular breakfast choice is of course a delicious bowl of cereal. But out of hundreds of cereal brands available in the market, which of them is the best among the rest. I track down the top five most popular cereal brands and share the results to you, the average consumer.

1. Cheerios

With its very popular Honey Nut flavor, Cheerios has been a classic among children since it first came out in May 1, 1941. And even with its recent debacle with the Food and Drug Administration that Cheerios was being sold as an unapproved drug, it still is in the ranking of the world’s number one cereal brand.

Some Nutritional Facts:

Vitamin A- 10% Vitamin C- 10%

Calcium- 10% Iron- 45%

2. Captain Crunch

More popularly known as Cap’n Crunch, this sweetened corn and oat cereal has been around since 1965. With its many varieties, this cereal is one of the unique brands in the Market. Even with the very controversial Crunch Berries (which was given the lowest nutritional score ever given by the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale), Cap’n Crunch has proved the test of time as one of the most beloved cereals in history. And one of the most recognized cereal characters in America.

Some Nutritional Facts:

Riboflavin- 36% Iron- 37%

Vitamin B6- 36% Vitamin E- 1%

3. Lucky Charms

Lucky Charms is one of the most recognizable cereals in America with its toasted oat-based pieces and multi-colored marshmallow bits (also known as Marbits). It has even been parodied in an episode of The Powerpuff Girls. This cereal brand even comes with its own theme song!

Some Nutritional Facts:

Vitamin A- 10% Calcium- 10%

Vitamin C- 10% Iron- 25%

4. Frosted Flakes

Kellog’s Frosted Flakes is known around the globe with several different names, but with one familiar mascot, Tony Tiger. This sugar coated cereal treat actually helps local communities maintain the decent form of their baseball playing fields.

Some Nutritional Facts:

Vitamin A- 11% Vitamin C- 10%

Thiamin- 25% Vitamin D- 10%

5. Trix

Trix may have one of the most popular mascots, Trix Rabbit. It is has also the most popular commercials and storyline with the rabbit always disguising himself into different costumes to retrieve his beloved cereal. And what is so delicious about this brand is its fruit flavored, ground-corn pieces. It is popular with the young and old alike.

Some Nutritional Facts:

Vitamin A- 10% Iron- 25%

Calcium- 10% Riboflavin- 25%

Whether it is on the list or not, all cereal brands have their own unique taste and style. So if you are used to eating one kind of cereal everyday, why not try a different one for once? Who knows? You might enjoy it.

      Wow, I never even knew that those brand of cereals were so popular! I expected Cinnamon Toast Crunch to be on the list, what with its sugar and cinnamoney goodness and all. I suppose Nelson Munts would like them, (get it?) Anyway, thank you for shining the light on this breakfast conundrum.

      Cute hub. Some of these cereals have been a staple in my household for years. My kids favor frosted flakes and lucky charms (they're magically delicious). I prefer Kashi cereals. And eggs. Thanks for the great commercials too.
