1. Shredded Wheat

Ah, Shredded Wheat, the blandest cereal the devil has ever created, and the wors of the worst cereals.

It doesn’t matter how much sugar you pour over these shredded biscuits, and, trust me, you’re going to be pouring about most of the bag on them, it still won’t overcome the bland taste of the cereal. To add insult to injury, the “shredded” nature of the cereal makes these things a pain to chew, even when soaked in milk.

Shredded Wheat is one of the oldest cereals ever created. It was first invented by a fella named Henry Perky in 1890, who had the bright idea of blending wheat with cream, forming it into a pillow-like biscuit. From there, the cereal was born, and two years later, Perky was selling the cereal to vegan restaurants (yes, vegan restaurants existed back in those days as well).

In a lot of ways, Shredded Wheat should have stayed in those vegan restaurants, but, instead, it was mast produced into a cereal, first by Kellogg’s and then by Post Foods. Today, Shredded Wheat is a demoralizing staple in cereal isles all across the country. Like its counterpart, Cheerios, they, too, have experimented with numerous other flavors, such as the Frosted Mini-Wheats, which are 500-times better than the regular Shredded Wheat.

This cereal exists for vegans and those who want to eat healthy, not for those looking for a sweet good time eating a bowl of cereal. If you’re in the latter category, stay far, far away from Shredded Wheat.
