I am not alone in my revulsion.
Literally all the people I've talked to agree that adding sugary juice to cereal is a bad idea. Thrillist conducted an informal poll asking "Would you ever eat cereal with orange juice instead of milk?" This is a small mix of replies we've received as of press time:
"NO. OMG." -- Annie, 26, Brooklyn, NY
"No. I'd rather eat an apple with water. Which is, to my mind, ALMOST as disgusting." -- John, 27, Brooklyn, NY
"I don't think so. Clash of flavors in my mouth that I don't think I'd want to start my day with. Seems pretty efficient, though." -- Jon, 44, Syracuse, NY
"Lololol, I would not, but I know my sister[, 30] used to as a kid sometimes. She hated milk." -- Stacy, 26, Queens, NY
"God no, but that's funny you ask because this guy I knew in college did that. He also dipped Oreos in OJ, too ... it was repulsive!" -- Ben, 35, Brooklyn, NY
"Not by choice." -- Noah, 53, Brooklyn, NY
"Fuck no. That's some serial killer type trait." -- Sasha, 27, Salt Lake City, UT
"Huh, I can't say the thought ever crossed my mind, but I've definitely had dry cereal with a glass of OJ and wouldn't be opposed to a trial run (but with a kind of plain cereal, Honey Nut Cheerios as the most exotic option)." -- Nate, 31, Austin, TX
"I asked 9 adults and all said NO!!!! But (wait for it) one mother knows a person who did this." -- Alejandro, 60, Central Islip, NY
"GTFO." -- Andy, 48, Los Angeles, CA
Thank you to everyone who participated.
Twitter and Instagram are awash with this disgusting innovation.
Just look at these horrific affronts to common human decency that people have broadcast to Twitter and Instagram.
