View Full Version : Is cereal soup? Salad?

I'm not sure if this is serious enough to be here but is cereal soup?

I think wet cereal is a soup. Like the grains/flakes and whatever else is
chew-able is the noodles and condiments, and the milk is the broth.

Same goes for the salad.
The grains/flakes is what the "salad" is mostly made up of (like bean, or lettuce, etc.) and the milk is the dressing.

Somehow I don't see the discourse on this one being hardy or controversial enough for the frequenters of RotW. :innocent:

Anyhow, I don't eat cereal with milk (sue me), so it's always just cereal to me.

Cereal itself is definitely a solid. Cereal and milk is, well...I wouldn't call that a soup. It's just cereal and milk.

I don't think it matters if anyone wants to call it a "soup," to be honest. It's not worth the time of an argument (to me anyways).

a liquid dish, typically made by boiling meat, fish, or vegetables, etc., in stock or water.
"a bowl of tomato soup"
synonyms: broth, potage, consommé, bouillon, chowder, bisque
"a cup of homemade soup"

a substance or mixture perceived to resemble soup in appearance or consistency.
"the waves and the water beyond have become a thick brown soup"

Meh, it's splitting hairs either way.

That's... kinda silly :P

Why can't cereal be, well, cereal? It's closer to oatmeal than either soup or salad.

For me cereal is just cold, soggy mush.

Neither. It's cereal.

Cereal definitely isn't a salad. Unless you use it as crutons. But man, that would be weird.

What the fuck

It's too goddamn early for this smh

I don't see anyone calling spaghetti a salad

I'm going to be controversial and fuck things up more- why not call it a pasta? Pasta's made of grains :lol:

Cereal is shit tbh XD

But really, cereal is cereal. Salads generally have lettuce, and soup is usually warm, has broth maybe, and well isn't crunchy
This has to be one of the oddest threads I've seen here haha
