Some whack job online is attempting to convince people that they should eat their cereal with water instead of milk.

Yes, water. Yes, gross.

“I am a true believer that cereal with water is better,” user u/DubitablyIndubitable posted on April 7 in the Unpopular Opinion channel on Reddit, 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.”  

The majority of the 67,200 people who upvoted the post seem to disagree, however.

“You disgust me,” wrote one user, while another said, “As bad as the guy that eats frozen food still frozen.”

We thought we’d heard everything until Jason Hammer admitted that while he prefers milk on his cereal, he opts for soggy flakes over crunch.
