Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.
Here in the U.S., it’s time to pick up our spoons and start eating cereal. We used to hold the world record for most cold breakfast cereal consumed (a record set in May 2012 in Rye Brook, New York). Now that title has been cruelly snatched away by 648 New Zealand schoolchildren, who, along with their teachers, ate more than 300 boxes of Weet-Bix cereal, soaked with 106 gallons of milk.
We have some training to do, to get back the cereal-eating title. Here are some cereals to help the cause, no matter what your special dietary restrictions might be. Chocolate-for-breakfast cereal? Check. Save-the-world cereal? Check. Coffee-meets-cereal? Check. Go, team!
On-the-Run Cereal - Cocomama Quinoa Cereal
Save the World Cereal - Three Sisters
Three Sisters also make use of several environmentally friendly initiatives: It buys wind-generated electricity credits to offset the energy the company uses to make its cereals; it sells its cereals in bags instead of boxes to minimize packaging; and consumers can send their used cereal bags to a recycling company that turns them into tote bags and park benches.
