How to Keep Tiny Dust Crumbs Out of the Last Bowl of Cereal for More Crunch, Less Mush
Cereal may be the most popular of breakfast choices, but one thing that has always bothered me about it is the crumbs.
Just like a bag of potato chips, when you reach the last third of cereal in the bag, you're left with nothing but shattered remnants of what used to be. At least with a bag of chips, you have the choice to skip the tiny crumbs or not. It's a little harder with cereal, especially when it's mostly dust that flies right into your bowl.
Some of you may actually like that, but for those who don't, there's an easy fix. The next time you're met with a bag of crushed up cereal remains, don't fret—strain. You can eliminate all of the unwanted dust in your cereal by running it through a colander (aka pasta strainer) first.
Aside from a cleaner bowl of cereal, removing the dust from sugary cereals like Cap n' Crunch's Crunch Berries (pictured above) will help cut down on trips to the dentist because you're getting rid of all that excess sugar the gets stuck at the bottom of the bag.
Even for healthier cereals like Raisin Bran, removing the dust from that last bit of cereal will make the cereal feel crunchier, since you won't have a ton of mushy, milk-soaked dust particles in the bowl. A soggy bowl of Raisin Bran is about as appetizing as a bowl of wet cardboard.
