Thanks to a David Williams tweet, poker players on social media have been busy debating a really vital subject. Maybe, the most essential concern ever discussed on Poker Twitter. No, it does not involve the DOJ’s current Wire Act opinion reversal or players tanking. Rather. everyone’s speaking about their preferred cereals.
And from what we’ve found, a lot like each and every other poker concern, absolutely everyone has a distinctive opinion.
It all began when Williams, the 2004 WSOP Key Occasion runner-up, posted this tweet on National Cereal Day (yes, that is seriously a issue).
1. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
two. Fortunate Charms
three. Cocoa Pebbles (really underrated)
four. Frosted Mini Wheats
five. Apple Jacks
six. Fruity Pebbles
7. Crunch Berries
eight. Frosted Flakes
9. Raisin Bran (when I require to chill)
10. Honey Nut Cheerios

There are hundreds of breakfast cereals on the industry. Some, having said that, are far more well known than other people. Williams’ leading decision – Cinnamon Toast Crunch – is also a preferred amongst some other poker players who commented on his post.
Phil Galfond agrees with Williams’ initial choose. But the rest of his list differs drastically. “OMGClayAiken” also loves Reese’s Puffs (we had to Google that 1), Cheerios, Cap’n Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Crispix, Golden Grahams, Honey Nut Cheerios, Cookie Crisp, and Life.
Jeremy Ausmus might have fallen victim to Williams’ unintentional (perhaps?) subliminal messaging. He binged on his preferred breakfast treats upon seeing all the Poker Twitter cereal chatter.

Other cereals that poker players on Twitter favor include things like Corn Pops, Count Chocula, Honey Bunches of Oats, S’mores, and Honey Smacks.
America’s Preferred Cereals
The breakfast cereal business is a massive business enterprise. According to IRI, a industry investigation firm, Americans devote about $eight.five billion annually on cereal, and just 4 businesses – Common Mills, Kellogg, Post Holdings, and Quaker Foods – produce $7.three billion of these sales.
In addition, cereals are no longer just for breakfast. Yet another industry investigation firm, Mintel, identified that 56 % of millennials say they consume cereal as a snack. That is almost 30 % larger than infant boomers.
So, what are the preferred cereals amongst Americans? Lots of of the very same ones poker players really like. According to Kiplinger.com, Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios are the two most well known selections, accounting for $867 million in combined annual sales.
Frosted Flakes ($412 million), Honey Bunches of Oats ($375 million), Cinnamon Toast Crunch ($345 million), Fortunate Charms ($283 million), and Froot Loops ($269 million), round out the leading seven.
We do not commonly like to voice our opinions on poker-connected concerns as we attempt to stay neutral. But we just couldn’t sit on the sidelines for this vital debate.
Despite the fact that there are so numerous tasty alternatives on the industry, CardsChat News is partial towards Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Life, Honey Nut Cheerios, and Frosted Flakes.
