Man Says Cereal Is Better With Water Than Milk, People Disagree
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and as such, it's quite important that you don't get it all wrong.
Some go for a couple of slices toast slathered in their spread of choice, or a hearty serving of porridge topped with berries, while others like nothing more than a big delicious bowl of cereal doused with water... wait... what?
This is how one guy likes to start his days anyway, changing out the creamy nutritious milk preferred by almost all of us, preferring instead to just cover his cereal in water, straight from the tap.
The man took to Reddit to share his unappetising breakfast formula, titling his post with the controversial/incorrect statement: "Eating cereal with water is better than with milk."
He also shared a video of what appears to be soggy Cheerios being swilled around a bowl of water with a plastic spoon... Yes, not only does he prefer water to milk, he also uses a little plastic spoon for some reason.
But before you immediately decide there can be no truth to this claim, allow him to explain his rationale.
In the post, he said: "I am a true believer that cereal with water is better. The taste of milk conflicts with the taste of the cereal, whereas water does not. While still getting the same texture, water does not ruin the taste of cereal.
"My friends crucified me when I told them this...so for this reason I am coming here in search of others who share my beliefs of water being better than milk."
However, if the anonymous watery cereal guy was expecting the Reddit community to be awash with support and understanding, he was very sorely mistaken.
One person said: "I would rather be tortured than drink swampy Fruit Loop water."
Another simply commented: "You disgust me."
The man went on to explain that he puts the cereal in before the water, but does not drink the remnant water after he's finished the cereal - that would be weird.
But some took issue with his reasoning that milk meddled with the true taste of cereal, arguing that there is a much better way to circumvent that problem.
One person suggested: "Just eat that shit straight from the box if you're that poor/out of milk. Water is... no."
Yep, that right there is the solution. Milk is fine if you want your cereal wet, no milk is fine if you want it dry and crunchy, but turn that tap off right now.
