If it just comes down to personal preference then that's understandable, but that grits SHOULD NOT have milk or sugar in them just sounds like one of those southern precepts that gets passed around without basis to it.
I've never heard of cheese oatmeal.

You all came so close but not quite there to the ultimate - it's Coco Wheats - lumpy with a scoop of ice cream on top. It's the best on a cold winter day.

And Coco Wheats is way better than that Maltomeal!

I personally don't put cheese in any hot cereal but I'm sure somewhere out there are people who like their oatmeal that way.

I love cream of wheat but I also like grits and polenta. But grits has to have butter and cheese.

I LOVE Cream of Wheat!! I especially love the Cinnabon flavor, but can't find it anywhere anymore.

I make the plain kind with a bit of half & half and raw sugar. SO good.

I like it and Cream of Rice, too. I like sliced peaches in it or strawberries.

I like it, although it's been a while since I've had it.

Sorry folks but it's true.

I much preferred the New England staple "Maltex" as a great winter hot breakfast food. Can't find it anywhere now.
That there is a pantry infestation problem, not a cream of wheat problem. Can happen with most any grain product, including pasta. The pests don't discriminate between expired or fresh - they will choose whichever has the easiest access.
