    English, as spoken in New Joisey
    Is there a way or one word to express the American concept of cereal as a breakfast food? Would a Russian say; хлопья? Or would he use the brand name?
    Спасибо заранее

    Corn flakes are quite popular here and are called кукурузные хлопья. There are also кукурузные шарики, колечки, what have you. A whole-grain oat mix is мюсли (usually with dried fruit).

    No, there isn't. We call it differently depending on what we have. E.g.: Кукурузные хлопья, Хлопья (Nestle Fitness), Хлопья (Nestle Kosmostars), Овсянка, Отруби etc.
