You get the health benefits Olli mentioned and a giant bowl vs a serving that could fit in a small coffee cup, plus more protein and fiber with the same amount of calories.
That's sort of my feeling as well. I inexplicably love Grape Nuts taste-wise (probably because of the Crack they secretly add to it), but TWO cups of cheerios does roughly equal 1/2 cup of Grape Nuts, so pyschologically one may be more easily satisfied with the Cheerios.

Though I must say, the Grape Nuts do seem to leave me satiated for much longer than the Cheerios do. One cup of Grape Nuts can let me go hours without being hungry again. Cheerios, less so.
