It takes me 15 minutes, but I think I may be filling the bowl up too much. I have the cereal almost overflowing, with around half the bowl full of milk.

That's definitely a case of over-fill.

Optimum time is 3.5 - 7.2 minutes. 15 is pushing it. I'd be careful if I were you.

It takes me ages to eat a bowl also. But that's because I just eat it so darn slow. Cereal is just one of those foods I can't eat at normal speed. I don't know whether it's the fact they get soggy really quickly or that it's got milk in it or what, I just eat it slow.

I take about 5 minutes to eat mine, and that is even if the bowl is practically over flowing.

If your taking that long, its probably a good idea to have two smaller bowls one after the other so the cereal doesnt all go soggy at once!

You should compete. With those sorts of times, you could make it to the regionals at least in the women's categories, and who knows how far you'd excel in mixed doubles. It took me months of training to get my tablespoon to sub 1:40.

To get anywhere in this kind of game, you need two things: natural ability and years of practice. Do you think you have what it takes to partner me in the quest for glory?

I can eat a whole pasty in less than two minutes, too, if that's any help.

2 minutes.

5 minutes if I'm being REALLY slow. Can't see how eating a bowl of cereal could take anyone 10+ minutes. =s
