This is just one of those slight musings that we noticed the other day.

Now, there are a few items I purchase I will never go for the cheaper generic brand. I need my Crest toothpaste, I'll only by Tillamook cheese, and Charmin is the only t.p. for me. When it comes to breakfast cereal I am a huge fan of Frosted Mini-Wheats. It's a go-to for me for any time of day.

The other day, at the grocery store, my kid opted for the generic version. I don't mind as it was a dollar cheaper but mentioned I don't mind buying the name-brand one. They said they preferred that one.

Later, I found out why.

As they stated, they often have more frosting than the name brand. I didn't think it was a huge ordeal but just politely agreed as it wasn't debate class and carried on with my day.

It wasn't until the other night when I was kind of hungry, it was late at night, I didn't wanna cook anything and, in those situations, a quick bowl of cereal always hits the spot. Looking at our selections, I grabbed the box of generic frosted mini-wheats.

And, lo and behold, they were right.

Now I'll say up front that I still prefer the taste of name-brand Frosted Mini-Wheats more, but if you're just looking for piles of whatever this frosting material is on these, grab the generic brand and see for yourself.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
