AMAZING CEREAL STATISTICS

How often do you eat cereal? And what is your favorite brand? Breakfast cereal is the all-American food. It is created by eccentric health reformers more than a hundred years ago, the strangely shaped bits of flavored grain have become a staple of the American diet, eaten by more than 80 million Americans every day.

Here are some amazing cereal statistics for you:

- Americans buy 2.7 billion packages of breakfast cereal each year.

-The cereal industry uses 816 million pounds of sugar per year, enough to coat each and every American with more than three pounds of sugar. The cereal with the highest amount of sugar per serving is Smacks, which is 53% sugar.

-Americans consume about ten pounds or 160 bowls of cereal per person per year. But America ranks only fourth in per capita cereal consumption. Ireland ranks first, England ranks second, and Australia ranks third.

-49 per cent of Americans start each morning with a bowl of cereal, 30 per cent eat toast, 28 per cent eat eggs, 28 per cent have coffee, 17 per cent have hot cereal and fewer than 10 per cent have pancakes, sausage, bagels or french toast.

-Breakfast cereals are the third most popular product sold at supermarkets in terms of dollar sales. The five most popular products are carbonated beverages, milk, breakfast cereal, cigarettes and fresh bread and rolls.
