Milk first, or cereal first?

Postby Sempi Archipelago » Sat May 25, 2024 9:59 am

Now, this is a very heated thing to debate. Many people say cereal is first, but there is a minority that say that milk goes first in the bowl. My personal opinion is... Milk. I seriously don't know why you would put the cereal first, because it will get so soft to the point that it will probably break when you lift it up. Also, I'm Bulgarian, and if you don't know, Bulgarians always put the milk first. It's just culinary tradition. That is why I think milk goes first.

What are your opinions on this topic?

Cereal goes first. Otherwise, the milk won’t get on the pieces of cereal at the top of the bowl. Plus, if you put milk first you are more likely to overflow or waste milk because you won’t anticipate the extra space taken up by the cereal. And, the milk is the sauce, while the cereal is the main dish.

Cereal first, then milk.

That way the cereal will get covered in milk and you can tell that you have the right ratio. If you pour the milk first, the cereal just floats on top and how the heck do you know you've got enough?

I 100% agree. Putting the cereal INTO the milk will increase the chances of some of the milk spilling out.

Shocking fact: I eat cereal WITHOUT milk
i agree, i don't eat cereal with milk but i have to disagree with you, it is hot water first then the cereal last. On occasion I add powdered spices like cinnamon and even oats which isn't powdered. Fortunately, i only eat one brand of cereal, all the brands can't compare.

In no world should the milk come before the cereal, because if you put the milk in before, you would not be able to tell if you have the right ratio of milk to cereal, not to mention that it drastically increases the chances of the milk overflowing or wasting milk, for you will most likely not anticipate the displacement of the milk by the cereal. The milk also would be unable to meet the pieces of cereal at the top, unlike putting the cereal in first. Now, some argue that the cereal will become so soft that it would break when you lift it up. I disagree heavily with this statement, for I have put the cereal before the milk many times and didn't experience the issue of the pieces falling apart while lifting them up, and I do not care if your culture normalizes putting the milk before the cereal, for it is just plain wrong.

This is silly. We all know you put cereal first then milk for the first bowl and then add cereal to the milk for the second bowl.

If we are doing military comparisons, I have different tech levels, so just match whatever your nation is to the appropriate level. If you are PT, imagine a set redneck guerilla warbands fighting so that their families aren't wiped out by famine and raiders. My goal in this is to be able to line myself up against any nations (along their timeline and tech level) whether they are based in 1974 or 80859. As such the numbers from PMT on are a bit soft. Those looking at our culture are stuck with MT timeline but I am building it out more. And for those who don't want to see factbooks, stats are not cannon. Policies are.

Cereal first, then milk, then cereal, then more milk, on and on making fine adjustments until the ratio is perfect, and it's right at the overflow point.

Few people know putting first the milk and then the cereal has a 0.01% chance of the bowl exploding from unnecesary reality charge.

Yes, yes you are.

Putting the cereal first means you can maximize the amount of cereal whilst still being able to be sure that you have a humane amount of milk-to-cereal ratio.
