The cereal: Honey Nut Cheerios. The guest: Karen Palmer. Karen is the Executive Editor at Tasting Table, a website and newsletter for culinary enthusiasts. Sharing her personal history with the epicurean delight known as cereal, it turns out that Karen lived in Italy for a time growing up and took great offense at the lack of traditional cereal options and cold milk available across the pond. Ben and Karen bond over childhood bans on sweet breakfast items and universally agree that Honey Nut Cheerios is the gateway cereal, before delving into an array of Cheerios factoids. After the break, tune in as Ben and guest dissect a tiny, foreign, knock-off box of Honey Nut Cheerios to see which cereal reigns supreme. This program was brought to you by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.





“I feel like Honey Nut Cheerios is the pot of cereals!”


“I usually go 2% – skim milk is way too watery, I want a little bit of body, and I feel whole is, for me, too much.”
