My November post addressing soggy cereal received several good responses. The most thought-out idea came from engineer and friend Matt Brake. His suggestion? A split-level bowl. (Internet research produced information about several attempts at this invention in the past. Internet research also found soggy-cereal.com to be a Weblog and mostly unrelated to cereal.)
My mom also wrote in a response: “The way to have crunchy cereal would be to have 2 smaller servings rather than 1 big one. This would require you to keep your carton of milk and box of cereal on the table, so it would be a less refined approach to breakfast–but definitely more crunchy.” Of the responses I received, this solution was the simplest but required the most work. Implementing this technique would mean nearly constant bowl refilling. Could a butler do something like this?
