Grape Nuts is the Lance Armstrong of breakfast cereals --- no grapes, no nuts, a total deception. Made largely from wheat and barley, no particular health benefits. Cheerios are made from oats, well known to help lower cholesterol and raise HDL, also contains the type of soluble fiber believed to reduce the risk of colon cancer. Grape nuts when wet degrade quickly into a heavy sludge reminiscent of heavily used kitty litter. To me, the choice is clear.
