    Never heard of it. Is it Slovakian?

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    Oatmeal (rolled oats)
    Rolled oats are like the flat oats you can cook in maybe 5 minutes. What most people think of when they think of oats.

    Steel cut oats look like little pellets and take maybe half an hour. Big with hipsters for some reason.

    I’m not sure what maltomeal is but it was a staple at my house as a kid

    Grits are ground-up hominy, similar to polenta. Popular in the American South.

    Rice is rice, I just kind of assumed a big part of the world eats it for breakfast

    Pulped newsprint is a joke, it sometimes has the same consistency as oatmeal if not the flavor or nutritional value

    Last one was in case I forgot or never heard of a popular breakfast gruel

    Malt-o-meal
    Malt O Meal is off brand generic cereal. Usually tastes pretty good and is like ridiculously cheap. You can usually get a 2-3 lb bag of Malt-O-Meal for the price of a box of name brand.

    Edit: Google reveals it is also a brand of farina Porridge.

    Somehow I knew that last one was gonna be the best choice

    I’ll be honest I forgot completely about Cream of Wheat and that may have been what I actually meant when I wrote Malt-o-Meal

    Cream of Wheat is the original, introduced at the 1893 Columbian Exposition, still featuring the likeness of master chef Frank L. White.

    Malt o Meal is a sad imitation created a quarter century later.

    I spent a good part of my early 20s ankle-deep in piping-hot newsprint pulp, the comparison to oatmeal was inevitable.

    There are very few better feelings than one shotting a mech in battletech with a gauss rifle from across the map.

    The mech just couldn't see it coming. Just aim and shoot.

    The difference here is kind of fascinating and really important. Rolled oats are actually fairly new as grain products go and were invented some time in like the mid-1800s as I remember. Before that it was all steel-cut or the like, which take way longer to cook and just aren't good for much of anything but making gruel. Rolled oats cook way faster and absorb more liquid and break down more during cooking and are thus capable of being integrated into baked goods. Which didn't come about till a little while later. Without rolled oats, oat-based baked goods don't exist.

    TLDR: Hipsters are, as ever, wrong. Progress is good and delicious.

    This is definitely the most authentic reaction to grits from people not from the South.
