Students mix Gatorade, cereal in 'Harbaugh Breakfast Challenge'

Wednesday January 28th, 2015

Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh recently told that when he was growing up, his father, newly named Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, once poured Gatorade on cereal when he discovered the family was out of milk.

Inspired by this very gross breakfast combo, the Michigan Alumni Association put together the "Harbaugh Breakfast Challenge," where students tried different combos of cereal and the sports drink to see which, if any, were the most palatable.

Based on the videos findings, it seems Cinnamon Toast Crunch pairs best with Gatorade, although some students still struggled with that combo.

Maybe the best move is to just stick with good, old-fashioned milk.
