A new survey from Ranker had more than 88,000 people rank their favorite breakfast cereals of all time. Pretty much all the winners have one thing in common, sugar. Lots and lots of sugar.


Rice Krispies is the only cereal to make the top 10 without tasting sweet. Cheerios finished 15th. Corn Flakes is 25th. It's tough out there without a ton of sugar.

On to more important things, the winners. The 10 best cereals are:

  1. Frosted Flakes
  2. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  3. Lucky Charms
  4. Honey Nut Cheerios
  5. Froot Loops
  6. Cap'n Crunch
  7. Apple Jacks
  8. Fruity Pebbles
  9. Cap'n Crunch Berries
  10. Rice Krispies

But how does it break down by state? The favorite cereal in Illinois is Cinnamon Toast Crunch and in Iowa it's Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries. Here's the rest of the favorites by state.
