Collected Cereal Brands

As of February 1, 2019, I had a little more than 2300 boxes. The number is a little hazy because cereal verges into granola, which is cereal in my opinion, then trail mix, which is not. There are also forms of hot cereal, like polenta, that should not be included. But sometimes it is hard to say.

I do have some duplicates, mostly acquired by mistake, probably 5-10% of the total. Sometimes the difference between two boxes can be subtle or invisible from the front, like a different side panel or a “NEW” triangle, indicating what I think of as a first edition.

My favorite cereal is General Mills Honey Nut Cheerios (49 boxes of various sizes and marketing ploys), followed by the original Cheerios (99 boxes). These are delicious cereals with consistently changing graphics. I’m less fond of their more innovative variants, such as Frosted Cheerios, though I have 34 boxes in those categories, for a total of 182. That outpaces the always appealing Wheaties (167). Of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, I have 121 boxes plus 15 variants (e.g. “With Real Bananas”), but if you add in the near knock-offs, like Post Toasties, and innumerable generic versions, that most basic cereal type might be the most numerous, and no wonder, as they are always scrumptious. I enjoy what Kellogg’s has done with the box of this classic cereal over the years.

The era of great cereal box design seems to have passed, and cereal does not claim nearly as much supermarket aisle space as in the old days, but I rarely shop for cereal without finding some new contribution to my collection.
