The burning question*: Hot or cold milk on cereal?

It’s Monday, so let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. The week is stretching out in front of you with no end in sight and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues. Possibly.

This week: Warning – this might invoke a bit of Marmite-type reaction in the sensitive among you. Milk on a bowl of cereal? You’re probably all on board with that.

But what temperature should that milk be? That’s where office splits. Some people love hot milk on their morning bowl; some say it has to be cold all the way.

What do you think? How do you take your milk on cereal?

Poll Results:

C - Cold milk all the way (6036)
A - Hot milk all the way (5130)
B - Hot milk on a few carefully selected cereals (2466)
D - I don't like milk at all (1166)
E - I don't eat cereal (379)
