🔥 Today’s tip: Ask someone about their favorite low-stakes hot take.
Recently there was a flurry of conversation among Medium’s staff about, of all things, Grape Nuts, the world’s most boring cereal. Turns out people feel very strongly about it.
“I eat it dry sometimes,” said one of our colleagues, who shall go unnamed.
“There is no un-dry way to eat it,” replied another.
“It’s so good when it gets cement-y,” someone else shared.
The discussion was revealing — and a much-needed break from the seriousness of daily work life. It turns out trading spicy opinions about something inconsequential is so much more fun than “What’s new?” or “How’s your state’s vaccine rollout plan?”
So…what’s the greatest cereal?
