The Pondering 10 – Favorite Breakfast Cereals of All-Time

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, as so they say. With breakfast, comes many options and choices to fuel and serve as a catalyst for the rest of the day. One of those many options is cereal, which we all know, also comes in many different forms. From sweet to wheat, from fruit to bran, breakfast cereals come in all flavors and types, each individual with their own preference and choice as their favorite. The following Pondering 10 is a list of my favorite breakfast cereals of all-time.


Ponndering10SpecialK 10. Special K – Vanilla Almond – A new cereal that yours truly tried for the first time while supervising a Women’s Health Magazine event at work. A healthy and very tasty cereal that is often very expensive. However, well worth it.
Pondering10HoneyNutCheerios 9. Honey Nut Cheerios – Plain cheerios was indeed good. Honey nut cheerios added a little flavor to the already good cereal that made it a must-try.
Pondering10RaisinBran 8. Raisin Bran – A cereal most won’t try because of the high fiber and bran that is boasted on the box. Who wants to eat healthy when you can load up on sugar in the morning, right? Once you get over the health kick that is Raisin Bran, it is a great cereal.
Pondering10FruitLoops 7. Fruit Loops – Who didn’t like Tucan Sam as a child? The fruitier, sweeter version of cheerios, fruit loops provided an enjoyable (and colorful) breakfast experience.
Pondering10CornFlakes 6. Corn Flakes – The cereal I’ve had more than any other on this list. The reason, 1) It was always on sale, and 2) If it wasn’t, the store brand which tasted the exactly the same, was. Corn Flakes is the Pound Cake of cereals, plain, simple, and pleases everyone.
Pondering10CinnHoneyCombs 5. Cinna-Graham Honey Comb – Another variation that is better than the original. Honey Combs are good, but much like Honey Nut Cheerios, the added flavor makes it that much better.
Pondering10Jeters 4. Jeter’s – Ah, the wild car on this list. Jeter’s were a limited edition cereal that was released a long time ago. Very similar to Frosted Flakes, Jeter’s were very, very, good. Basically addicting. After my parents bought several boxes when they were released, I ate Jeter’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner until they were done. After all, it’s a cereal endorsed by Derek Jeter. Who wouldn’t?
Pondering10CinnamonToastCrunch 3. Cinnamon Toast Crunch – Here is a cereal I grew to like during my days in college. With such limited options, CTC became the preferred option, and eventually, a favorite. 
Pondering10FrostedFlakes 2. Frosted Flakes – What else could you say besides, "They’re Grrrrrrrrrrrrreat!
Pondering10CaptainCrunch 1. Captain Crunch – Or is it “Cap N’ Crunch”? Whatever it is, it is the winner of this list. The original Captain Crunch will always be a cereal that is my favorite. Who doesn’t like the cereal, especially the tasty flavored milk it creates. The absolute best.

Impact Wrestling OverDrive 2022 Review: "Impact is Toast...You Know What You're Getting"

Impact Wrestling pay-per-views (or special events) in 2022 aren't just the biggest kept secret in the professional wrestling world, but they've also been the most underrated positive within pro wrestling going forward. Much of what Scott D'Amore and company have done this year should be celebrated. The product hasn't always been a must-see, but at the same time, it hasn't been terrible. Impact is toast. You know what you're getting. It's not fancy, but you know what you're getting. And in various forms, it can be amazing.  Bad analogies aside, Impact Wrestling wrapped up 2022 with yet another banger in OverDrive. The mini-big shows have really become a nice touch for the company in moving their storylines along, and at times, allowing the ability to give focus and opportunity to characters and talent to be highlighted. It's been a long road since this company was generating One Night Only shows that meant and felt like, well, impactless.  Nonetheless

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/27/22

3 Up 1. Thomas James & Richard Fierro - Despite the horror of the recent shooting at the Colorado Night Club, I would be remiss if I didn't give props - and the top "Up" spot - to these two gentlemen who not only served our country in the military at one point in their lives, but also saved many more by taking down the shooter at Club Q.  Much respect. Much appreciation.  2. Olivia Pichardo - Does anyone know how difficult D1 baseball is? I don't think many know, understand it, or appreciate it. What Olivia Pichardo has accomplished as a freshmen at Brown University by becoming the first woman to make the roster of a D1 baseball team is damn impressive. She also did it as a walk-on. Wow! 3. Thanksgiving/Holiday Weekend - Whether you celebrated Thanksgiving, or just enjoyed the days off in appreciation of your family and gratitude, I hope the days off were a good one for you and yours.  3 Down 1. Mass Shootings - I can't say anything else on these. They just n

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Life Itself (2018)

Who is in it?  The happenstance and journey of a young New York City couple cause a reverberation of several instances and effects that echos and effects several others through various generations.  What is it about? Oscar Isaac - Will Olivia Wilde - Abby Olivia Cooke - Dylan Sergio Peris-Mencheta - Javier Gonzalez Laia Costa - Isabel Diaz Antonio Banderas - Mr. Saccione Favorite Scene:   The alternate scene from the original bedroom scene between Will and Abby shows a different version of what happened with the exact words used, just a different tone - indicating that life itself isn't the greatest narrator, and we all have our own versions of a story that is possibly part of a bigger story.  Favorite Quote:  "I crave a happy life, grandpa. I have an almost desperate craving for stability and happiness like fat people crave chocolate or lost hikers crave rescue. I want to live a big, great, fantastical life, but I am concerned that the tragedy that seems to follow me, the tra

Survivor Series 2022 Review: "Served it's Purpose" on Thanksgiving Weekend

There was something especially "traditional" about the Survivor Series happening over Thanksgiving weekend that added to the intrigue and the overall aura of the event. Something that felt well, overall anticipatory and "right" for a wrestling event on a Thanksgiving Saturday night (you know, if that's a thing going forward - maybe?). Of course, all of this is ironic considering this Survivor Series event took a break from the historical concept of the 5-on-5 survivor tag-team format for the much more WCW-ish, "War Games". As Triple H (or do we call him Paul, now? Mr. LeVeque? Mr. Triple H? Mr. Helmsley?) noted in the post-show press conference, the break was indeed a nice change of pace, allowing the old format to take a breather and gain some nostalgic interest for the events to come.  Nonetheless, Survivor Series was welcomed and it was a good show. For me, the War Games matches were there and were entertaining. Everyone in those matches felt like t
