Yes, but there's something addictive in that kitty litter sludge, I swear... Taste issues aside, if Cheerios are that much better for you, how come Grape Nuts seems to be considered a fairly healthy choice that ranks with cheerios on various "good" cereal lists I've seen?

Honeynut cheerios are like crack. I don't think I could have them in the house. (You know, along with keeping the crack out of the house...)
