People swear by this method, claiming that it makes the cereal stand up to the milk more easily. If you don’t like soggy cereal, this tip is for you. All you have to do is pour a bowl of cereal (without milk), place it in the freezer, and wait a little bit.


I leave the bowl in the freezer before you got to bed☺️👍🏽 #fyp

Once the cereal is cold and crunchy, pour some milk (or non-dairy alternative) and take your breakfast to the next level!

Another reviewer even made us chuckle when they said their teeth are far too sensitive for them to participate.

There is a trial and error phase that may need to take place before you find that perfect bowl of cereal. Your personal preference will determine how long the cereal stays in the freezer and how much milk you pour over it. Either way, give it a try and let us know what you think!
