My go-to cereal ever since I was a kid and still now that I'm grown. The best cereal there is - the bunches are the best!

@Bigbill, are you eating the same cereal that the rest of us are? Honey Bunches has loads of flavor. It is one of the most delicious cereals on the market.

I tried it for the first time and I am not happy. I feel it was a waste of money. Had a real good smell to it, but once I added the milk. There was not flavor - just the taste of plain bran flakes. Sorry.

The first time I tried Honey Bunches of Oats, it was like, where have you been all my life. It was crunchy, sweet and best of all very delicious.

The cereal is okay but I have to put a lot of additional sugar in it.

This is the BEST CEREAL EVER. It's the first cereal I ever remember (other than maybe Honey Nut Cheerios). I alternate between two cereals each morning and this cereal is always one of the two.

Fantastic. Being a diabetic this puts the right touch on a cereal low in sugar yet delectably delicious to the taste buds. Surrounded by a wonderful team approach this breakfast cereal is truly a hit. Thanks Post!

It is a good cereal. No additional sugar needed. It is perfect as it is. I had this for breakfast this morning, but it was the one with strawberries.

Great cereal for kids and adults alike. I think I would enjoy it a little more if it were not quite as sweet. But over all, I love it.

The cereal is good and I love it but they need add more sugar to it. I hope they keep up the good work.

The quality and the taste have taken a nosedive. Honey Bunches of Oates used to be my favorite cereal, but now I will never buy this cereal again. The honey and almond content has been reduced. We're not getting our money's worth.

This one gets my vote for the greatest cereal of all time. I buy two boxes every time I go to the grocery store... more if it's on sale.

Very tasty cereal. Too bad it has some bad ingredients such as High Fructose Corn Syrup. I love it but I don't eat it anymore.

If it currently the most common Cereal I buy. It has a thorough blend of taste that makes it easier to satisfy a large household. There have been a few cereals to try a large blend, but after I had this I did not care for them any more. The market shelves seemed to reflect this as well.

My surprise was the time it took them to have such a variety as they do now. You could accept it was younger, newer, and not available in all grocery stores yet for years. But by the time we passed 2000 most stores around me had dumpped similar products, even finding it impossible to make mimics with their value brands.

You won't be lectured by your doctor for eatting it but people still prefer fresh fruit on it. Children will enjoy eatting it but they don't have a beloved mascot on the box. It doesn't get soggy fast but it still can get soggy.

I would give it a five but I know the taste isn't perfect ten, there also isn't a cereal mascot so until recently I would have considered it's box and advertiseing a three. However, now the company employees are feeling like the mascots and they finally added some varity.

The appearence should be about 3-3.5 but the Factory Workers are doing their job. The experience of eatting would work as a 5 but small children and people with certain allergies may not enoy. I'd balance that out to 4-4.75 depending on the person. But since I can't vote that way, I've given then 4 out of 5.

I would describe each type of Honey Bunches of Oats differently. The original provides every bite and the milk with a pleasing weak sweetness. I cannot think of anything else providing the same experience when chewing, as you have such a mix of rough crunchy clusters that you bite through but land into a padding of either soft or fragile flakes. In my experience though, every batch turns out differently.. both in taste and ratio of Bunches to Flakes. Some times my flakes are burnt, other times I barely find any bunches. Although things seem to have improved in the last couple years, I still get those mishap boxes.

I agree with "Oat Flake Lover" about someone stuffing the ballot box for Honey Bunches of Oats. I was checking out the vote total on Oct 9 and after a few seconds I hit the refresh key and around 10 more votes showed up! Caught in the act. From 40 votes to 107 votes in less that 24 hours. I have been monitoring the votes of several key cereals for several months, looking for statistical anomalies. This certainly is abnormal. In my opinion, about 67 votes should be taken away from Honey Bunches of Oats total to reflect the true sentiments of honest voters.

Note from Mr Breakfast: Thanks for pointing this out. Every night, I'm able to see if an individual cheated the system and managed to vote multiple times for any given cereal... and then I adjust the votes (and even penalize the cereal if the cheating is extreme). I think you caught this before my nightly check... but I will definitely keep my eye on this one. Thanks again.

Something looks fishy here in the voting for Honey Bunches of Oats. It went from 59th place (having 40 votes) to 25th place (94 votes) overnight, after having languished near 60th place for months. Is someone from Post stacking the deck? Are they embarrassed that their discontinued cereal Fortified Oat Flakes is much more popular than most of their current brands? Honey Bunches of Oats are fairly good, but far inferior to Post Oat Flakes (or Fortified Oat Flakes). I wish Post would put some Post Oat Flakes in their Honey Bunches of Oat recipes.
