Some UK differences... Tony the Tiger's grrrrreat cereal is called "Frosties", and Cheerios are made by Nestle.

Also, while googling this to make sure I wasn't crazy, I discovered Cheerios are branded under Uncle Toby's in Australia/NZ

Yes, though it's essentially a US quiz I think it would be reasonable to allow Frosties as a type-in, since it's the same cereal and the same tiger

Also, fun fact... The UK version of Cheerios has more than five times the amount of sugar that the US version has.

The BRITISH version has more sugar? I know we're usually not that far behind the US, but that's still a surprise.

Apparently Original Cheerios in the US are low sugar, but they do make other varieties with more added sugar like Multi Grain Cheerios, which Nestle say are closer to the UK standard Cheerios. Brits don't have a low sugar equivalent of US Original Cheerios.

Clearly this means they now have less sugar and are therefore healthy. Hurrah!

For raisin bran (which doesn't exist in the UK) I just kept guessing bigger numbers haha. I figured two trillion was a good place to call it quits

I tried "spoons" which is functionally the same as "scoops"

No clue about most, it's more facts about branding and marketing (so specific to a few countries) rather than cereals :)

4/18, 0 points. Hadn't heard of any of the ones I didn't get. Total humiliation, especially as I consider myself a cereal fan!

Then again I'm not American, and when I buy cereal I just go for some generic box of granola.

How do you consider yourself a cereal fan, if when you buy cereal, you just go for some generic box of granola?

I always like a bowl, staying in a hotel I'll always happily tuck in, but I've never been au fait with the colourful, cartoony, toy-filled universe of children's cereal. Weetabix and Bran Flakes are my all-time my favourites, but not available where I live unfortunately!

Maybe lose the word "brand" on the Pebbles and Total clues. The brands are Post and General Mills, respectively. None of the other clues are asked in that manner.

I want to be on a Rice Crispies box. Snap, Crackle, Mitch, and Pop. In Hollywood, it's all about who you know, and I know Crackle.

For us, sugar lovers, you guys in America have the best cereals. Here in Spain we barely get some desugarized froot loops and the rest of Nestle brands (and their copies). No marshmallowish sugarish cereals that we see on the sitcoms :/

I remember when Fruity/Cocoa Pebbles and Frankenberry/Count Chocula first came out.

Our absolute favorite, though, was Rice Honeys and Wheat Honeys because they had the best premiums: small plastic animals, sea creatures, Jungle Book characters, Winnie the Pooh characters and even dinosaurs, all in various colors.

I can still remember the excitement we felt when we'd open a new box. Every now and then we'd get TWO critters, which was hitting the jackpot. One time we got three. Somebody on the assembly line decided they were going to make some little kid's day. And they sure did.

When I was a snot-nosed high school student we had a Science teacher who had been an Admiral at the time of his retirement and was now teaching science for the love of it. We cured him of that--he immediately acquired the nickname "Cap'n Crunch," which was written on the class attendance roster, his desk, and numerous other surfaces. He was gone in a year.

Here in Korea, cereal isn't considered a breakfast food. It's a candy, snack, or ice cream addition. It's sold with cookies and cakes. There's Oreo cereal, and its pretty expensive, but I've never tried it since I don't like Oreos.

Nice quiz! Could you accept Frosties for Frosted Flakes, since that's the UK name? Also, Nestle for who makes Cheerios, since that's the brand they are sold under in the UK?
