They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why you shouldn't screw it up by stuffing garbage in your face. To clarify: I don't mean that all sugary cereals are garbage, nor am I suggesting that you're really eating garbage for breakfast (if you are, ignore this silliness, you have bigger problems to deal with). The truth is that some cereals, regardless of their nutritional value or alluring packaging, are just worse than others.

Here, according to me, are the 10 worst breakfast cereals of all time, from least worst to worst worst.

  • 10 Trix
    Amazon
  • This might be the least exciting cereal ever made.
  • 9 Honeycomb
    Amazon
  • You know what's delicious? Actual honeycomb. This is like if cardboard dressed up as honeycomb for Halloween.
  • 8 French Toast Crunch
    General Mills
  • No, no, no. You already made this, it was called Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and it was way better.
  • 7 Cookie Crisp
    Amazon
  • I know cookies, and you sir, are no cookies.
  • 6 Reese's Puffs
    Amazon
  • These are an abomination.
  • 5 Kashi Puffs
    Amazon
  • Let's all agree that sometimes things that are good for us are really unpleasant to consume. No matter how many berries you put on the cover.
  • 4 Banana Nut Cheerios
    Amazon
  • NOPE NOPE NOPE
  • 3 Shredded Wheat
    Amazon
  • This is not food.
  • 2 Cocoa Krispies
    Amazon
  • These are an affront to both cocoa and Rice Krispies. They do not taste like chocolate, they taste like dirt -- further evidenced by them turning your cereal milk into mud.
  • 1 Fruity Pebbles
    Amazon
  • I wish no one would ever have to eat another one of these.
