“@johncockram: @seanmorrison_91 weetabix is a different beast with hot milk. So will you be reviewing both options?” Both!

“@readingfanman: @seanmorrison_91 Surely needs taste, appearance, and other categories before an overall spoon rating!” 100%

The Reading Post reported him as saying:

I think I have bitten off more than I can chew.

It will take a long, long, time to go through every cereal that I can get my hands on. I think I might just have to buy a box of cereal, have one bowl and throw it away.

It’s way too much to even contemplate, it’s going to be difficult and I might have to get Jem in to give me a hand.

I eat a lot of cereal and it’s what I snack on at home. At 10pm I might be watching my TV catch-up, a bit of Australian Master Chef, I’ll go and get a bowl of Golden Grahams.

Anything golden is my choice at the moment, which is why Cereal Quest has come about. I need to try and educate myself and let people know what the best cereal is out there.

Some cereals you only get two bowls out of because the boxes are so small, so maybe I get through three boxes a week? It’s not that many, is it? It’s a big bowl and a big spoon too.

Someone tweeted me a link to Wikipedia the other day and I worked through A, B and C and there were about 100 cereals. I think I am going to have to just go to the supermarket, start from the bottom of the aisle, work my way through and see how long it takes.

I’m not a fan of the boring ones – muesli and the shredded wheat. Cereals like that I am going to try with warm milk, cold milk, a bit of sugar, fruit – you could go anywhere with it.

There aren’t that many cereals that are bad for you and I have a fantastic diet.

I never really used to eat cereal and I don’t eat it for breakfast. If we have a hard days training I’ll then get home and have a bowl. I never eat cereal at the training ground.

People are quite excited about this and writing through to me asking if I will mix them, but I’m not sure about it yet.

I would class myself as a cereal connoisseur and I need to find out who at Reading is as highly trained as myself on cereals.

If not, I might put an ad in the paper and see if I can get some help.
