I once ran an Iron Brewer contest where the secret ingredients were Count Chocula, Froot Loops, Lucky Charms and Honey Nut Cheerios.  Some of those people still won't speak to me to this day....

Well, duh. You didn't alow Captain Crunch? BOGUS!

Edit: Capt Crunch Saison... hmmm

I've thought about using them before, but never actually gone through with it. Puffed wheat is the same as torrified wheat, and the main 4 ingredients are sugar, wheat, dextrose, and honey. The only issue I see is that the cereal has a lot of simple sugars, almost 56%, so using that plus brown sugar brings the simple sugar content of the beer pretty high at about 25% by weight.

it's homebrew. It should be fun. If you want to try it, then go for it! I once made a s'mores stout with real graham crackers in the mash and Hershey's chocolate and Marshmallows in the boil. It was terrible. But it wa fun to brew. And hell, I may try it again with some more modifications someday. ;)

Check this out, graham crackers, chocolate malt, and marshmallow flavoring:

Neither does my next door neighbor: he was complaining to me about making Waldorf salad at the restaurant where he works because the walnuts are such a pain in the ass to shell. I suggested that maybe he should try using a nutcracker.
He was not amused.
