It’s amazing how much difference texture can make when thinking about breakfast cereal. We plan on eating some form(s) of hot wheat cereals once a week in the event of a zombie apocalypse, so we tried all three versions to see what tastes best. It turns out that they’re all easy to make but pretty different in taste.
