The Roost Questionnaire with Duff Goldman


The Roost Questionnaire with Cornelius Rooster

In the Roost Questionnaire, we sit down with one of our favorite cereal aficionados to learn about their morning routines and ask a series of burning questions. Our first is Duff Goldman, the chef, musician, writer, and mastermind behind Charm City Cakes. Duff collaborated with our team to design the No Kid Hungry Collector’s Bowl to benefit No Kid Hungry. While he was here, we pulled him aside to ask a few questions...

With which living person would you most want to share a bowl of cereal?
My fiancé Johnna. Having breakfast with her is one of my favorite things to do. 

If you were Snap, Crackle or Pop, which would you be?
I’d be crackle. He seems the most mischievous. 

At what time do you wake up in the morning?
3am. No joke.

How many times do you hit the snooze button?
Sometimes none. Sometimes 10. 

What do you make first: breakfast or coffee?
Breakfast. I wake up hangry. 

When do you first check your phone?
Whenever. I’m not glued to it. I kinda hate it. 

What’s your favorite board game?

Do you always add milk? Or do you sometimes eat cereal dry?
Milk. Always milk. Always whole. 

What’s your go-to everyday Kellogg’s cereal?
Special K. I love the taste, but I really love the texture. 

What Kellogg’s cereal was most memorable from your childhood?
Cracklin’ Oat Bran. There’s a secret chemical in it that makes you crave it in your sleep. 

What kind of milk do you use in your cereal?
Whole milk. I like my funk uncut.
