    I want to know, what factors do you look at when you purchase a cereal (i.e. price, nutrition, toy, etc.). Response will be greatly appreciated.

    I look for the free toy!

    But seriously, I just try the ones that look tasty and buy them again if I liked them... I prefer the roasted musli ones (like Cruesly by Quaker, don't know if they sell that in the US..)

    You just took the title of the most off topic post. Anyway, the only factor I look at is taste.

    I wonder if the Visor will ever be pictured on a box of Wheaties... (with a free Springboard inside, of course!)

    No...Nutrition and Taste. Price is the least factor.

    Just curious, why do you want to know?

    I want them to bring back the good cereals, the ones with no nutritional value whatsoever.
    Like Quisp and Quake.

    High in fiber and protein, low in sodium and sugar.

    It's got to taste at least ok.

    I save money other places besides cereal price.

    I like Honey Nut Cheerios for taste.
    They've been offering came CD-ROMS these days. Maybe eventually they'll offer springboards.

    Taste is most important. Nutrition somewhat so. Prices and prizes almost never enter into the equation. I generally buy Honey Nut Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, and (when I'm feeling nostalgic) Count Chocula or Cocoa Pebbles.

    I don't think nationally, though. "1996
    Long range Quisp probes land on earth with small quantities of Quisp cereal. Quisp sightings reported beginning in western New York state." from http://www.quisp.com/whereveibeen/whereveibeen3.html but it's available nationally from http://www.quisp.com/buy/buy_page2.htm for 2.99 plus P&H

    I have small kids, so nutrition is most important followed by taste (so they'll eat it in the first place) We usually go with Cheerios or Raisin Bran.


    P.S. This was my wife's answer....I just eat what's in the pantry.
    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice...

    Taste doesn't matter much, because I eat cereal when I don't care. That's why I like Rasin Brand or Frosted Flakes (store brand of course)

    I like the free toys, followed by a contest of sorts, and if it has one of the first two and taste yummy then I'm buying the family-sized box cuz I eat a lot

    i'll pay extra for taste.

    But if i liked the taste of 2 cereals, then nutrition is the next criteria used.

    Price isn't that imporant as there's usually not enough difference to really make a dent in the final shopping bill.
    wow, it's been awhile.....things have REALLY changed...why is my Visor Edge still in my hand? Will a Treo fit better?

    I'm fond of Rice & Corn Chex, but not Life (which gets soggy too quickly). If I'm in the mood (usually the week of my birthday), I'll grab a box of Cap'n Crunch. If I'm feeling ornery, only Lucky Charms will do.

    I used to eat Fruit Loops until my mom wondered about the artificial colors. (Guess that's why I like Blue Moon ice cream -- because it tastes just like Fruit Loops.)

    Let's see... all except Charms has little square grids for cereal shapes. Unconscious reminders of PalmOS dot-matrix letters, perhaps?

    I always grab a handful of boxes on the aisle ends...the ones on sale. When it's Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I end up buying 6 boxes. If I wasn't married, I'd be eating cereal 3-meals a day.
