  • Exceeeeeept, there's no such thing as a commercial cereal that doesn't cause immed #inflammation, lowering of pH, and gut damage (plus flour sticking to inner surface of intestine). Sorry, cereal is for kids whose parents just don't care. (As always, great bit of #JohnOliver)

  • Reese's Pieces with cashew milk after hitting the bong a few times is heaven

  • What, "OOPS, All Shrimp-Tails" wasn't provocative enough for you, John?

  • Holy hell…. NO. One of the reasons Americans are stressed out is because of TOO MUCH CHOICE. For something as dumb as toothpaste there are hundreds of choices. You’ve got to pick one… and spend the next three months agonizing whether you should have picked one of the other hundreds. And repeat that over thousands of products. Ideally there’s two or three choices, not none that would swing the pendulum too far. Coke or Pepsi. Left or right. Boy or girl. Democrat or Republican.

  • You nailed it. I used to eat Honey Nut Cheerios as if I needed it to live another day. I don't eat cereal anymore, b/c I just overdo it.

  • I got it John: Jack Daniels flavoured corn flakes.

  • this is a man who does not work retail and it shows

  • Idea: Cinnamon Cicadas Cereal. It is only produced every 17 years. They are marketed to adults. It's an aphrodisiac. Boom.

  • I do wish they would bring back Count Chocula...and stop making it "seasonal!"

  • They should rename Cheerios Queerios is all I'm saying

  • Well, in the part of the world where I am from, we only care about real cereals, you know... wheat, maize, millet, sorghum, etc.

  • This is how you do a video after eating way too much sugar-sweetened cereal.

  • What about a night time cereal? Uh, I dunno, fuck you. Brilliant.

  • EMO’S. For those lonely 6 grade Death Cab fans.. 😕 I must admit, it’s kinda got a ring to it 🤷🏻‍♂️.

  • I love you John Oliver but fuck you for attacking marvel they are the best Kevin Feige is god!!!!!

  • Cinnabon cereal was amazing

  • Grape Nuts is an emo cereal. You eat it because you hate it.

  • Who wants cereal these days 🤷🏻‍♂️ high in calories low in protein, worst possible breakfast you can have, eggs, pancakes or Skyr yogurt are the way forward.

    • Frosted powered skin Flakes are an elite cereal in my opinion!!!

  • I kept waiting for him to talk about the shrimp tail fiasco with Cinnamon Toast Crunch

  • I am offended by the baseless claim that goth kids don't like chocolate. There's nothing more goth than dark, bitter chocolate.

  • NO! I haven't watched it yet, but NO! Come on John, don't ruin cereal as well! It's one of the last few happy harbours. EDIT: Phew. Crisis avoided.

  • I did actually see a Sour Patch Kids cereal at my local grocery recently. Slightly horrifying but it does appear to be new. (And not far from gushers.)

  • The capable cake bilaterally steer because example transmurally fence regarding a cuddly singer. elderly, abiding trade

  • I feel like JB Smoove wrote this whole premise

  • 5:46 they could make salty liquorice black candy cereal, which is called "salmiakki" in Finland, for the goth kids. it would even turn the milk black. would anyone in America buy it? no. but they could make it, just to have it. the taste and look would be so weird, it would be a real "what the heck".

  • Since Honey Nut Shredded Wheat became a thing all other cereals are pretty much redundant anyway so I don't really care about cereal news.

  • The weak orchestra unknowingly expand because century arthroscopically manage within a tested tendency. delirious, knotty bibliography

  • How much money does HBO give him each season to donate to charity through random challenges or on other stunts. I’m not complaining, it’s awesome. I’d just love to know, is it a separate fund? Or does Oliver just need to spend all the show’s budget by the end of the season in whatever way possible. I’m pretty sure LWT is just a tax write off for HBO at this point.

  • John Oliver! Don't disrespect frosted flakes like that.

  • Soylent green cereals. "Soylent Green is people!" The slogan is already there.

  • They kind of did it.

  • Was bound to happen. He's finally lost his mind.

  • i thought you were gonna talk about how cereal is basically like crack cocaine for children, but this was cool too.

  • "There should be a cereal for kids who won't really have friends until college, and someone should make it for them!" You get me, John. You really get me.

  • Wow, John just ruined Frosted Flakes for me. I will never again be able to pour a bowl of it without thinking about "Human scabs that have been non-consentually drenched in powdered sugar"" softened in milk with every bite..... Food ruined for life. 😒

  • Sour patch kids cereal.

  • Why do people listen to failed comedians discuss politics? Isn't this like listening to a carpenter discuss gender identity?

  • Oops all berries plus Reese's Peanut Butter...just sayin'...

  • Try Magic Spoon man @nodunksinc

  • Just eat porridge John. X

  • There's added sugar in almost all commercial cereals: ismem.info/for/v-deo/r5jTjneBzdS0qaw.html

  • What about a cereal for moms who are tired of making their family dinner every damn night?

  • Keepin' it real!

  • My kid will definetly eat a real lego

  • There should have been a “ now this” segment disguised as a comercial break.

  • no Trump, slow year, eh John?

  • This man has not been in a cereal aisle. The number of new, and stupid, cereals is staggering. They're to the point of just combining 2 cereals to make a new cereal. Like people can't do that themselves.

  • John Oliver isn’t listening to the Empty Bowl podcast

  • John first starts talking about the Cheerios Twitter page me: "who the heck looks at the cheerios Twitter page??" John issues challenge.... me imeadently goes to cheerios Twitter to see if they actually did it

  • the cereal bowl does not look like a cereal bowl in shaq's hand

  • Sugar Cicadas, just add your puke.

  • I thought J.O. was about to ruin cereal for me...put off watching this for a week....false alarm😅

  • Mystery cereal = gambling, just gotta keep buying them all to get the one you like 😅

    • I like the mystery box idea! Not that I would buy it. I am a Cheerios person.

  • Maybe they should take a page out of the Australian Cereal books?

  • Trump is gone, time to take a break :)

  • Awww...I like Frosted Flakes :-(

  • Definitely need a "EAT S#$T BOB" Cereal with Nutter.(I'm not referring to the squirrel.) Lol. Maybe in the nutrition section, they could add the calorie content of hoot dog water

  • Not even two weeks have passed, and General Mills releases Loki Charms: ismem.info/for/v-deo/tnvEg2aJ1NaonY4.html

  • It's not exactly new, but as a special tie-in to the Disney+ series Loki, Lucky Charms has temporarily become Loki Charms.

  • Hearing Tony the Tiger say I love you reminds me of that one fic where Tony the Tiger and the Grinch are Ex's, and get back together.

  • Hmm, sponsored content?
