There are tons of breakfast options to choose from, but there's nothing like a classic bowl of cereal.
The simple meal has been around for ages, and offers a certain degree of nostalgia for those who grew up eating Lucky Charms, Fruity Pebbles, Cookie Crisp and tons of other favorite cereals.
Hailing cereal eaters the “real MVPs,” Zippia sought the most popular cereals in each state, noting that the majority of America prefers sugary cereals over healthier ones. The No. 1 cereal is Cinnamon Toast Crunch, ranking as the most popular cereal in 13 states. Froot Loops snagged the runner-up spot, with eight states claiming it as the most popular.“Not a single state understands how magically delicious Lucky Charms are,” Zippia observed, “which makes Missouri’s love of meh Raisin Bran even more questionable.”
