Some things just go together like peanut butter and jelly, macaroni and cheese, and cereal and milk… or maybe not. One man is causing all sorts of controversy with his recent Reddit post arguing that cereal is best eaten with water instead of milk.
“I am a true believer that cereal with water is better,” user u/DubitablyIndubitable posted on April 7 in the Unpopular Opinion channel, explaining, “The taste of milk conflicts with the taste of the cereal, whereas water does not. While still getting the same texture, water does not ruin the taste of cereal.”
He went on to admit that his friends “crucified” him for pouring water over Fruit Loops and Cheerios, his two cereals of choice. And based on the horrified comments, the majority of the 67,200 people who upvoted the post seem to be as disgusted as the user’s friends.
“You disgust me,” wrote one user, while another said, “As bad as the guy that eats frozen food still frozen.”
Then there was the extremely appalled user who went so far as to claim, “This has to be, by far, the most unpopular opinion in the world. You’re not human.” Another agreed, adding, “Mark this as NSFW” and “this is a crime to humanity.”
One person then asked the original poster if he drank the water afterward to which he responded that no, he only uses it to create the right texture. He then uploaded a video of his watered-down cereal, causing one viewer to “violently vomit” while another was left “shaking and crying.”
