It is a well-known fact that Taylor Swift has been in a number of relationships with various famous men. It is a slightly lesser-known fact — but still a fact nonetheless — that Taylor Swift has always had a strong relationship with cereal. "I really want cereal right now," she once tweeted. Same.

Both of the above facts beg the inevitable question: What if all of Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriends were cereal? Which flavors would they be?

It is a question worth exploring!

When he dated Taylor Swift: 2008

Why he is Boo Berry: Jonas reportedly broke up with Swift via a 27-second phone call, which is barely any better than a full-on ghosting. "Boo! I'm leaving you," is something he may have even said on the call.

2. Taylor Lautner — Cookie Crisp

When he dated Taylor Swift: 2009

Why he is Cookie Crisp: Lautner is most well-known for being a wolf. The current Cookie Crisp mascot is a wolf named Chip. This is almost certainly not a coincidence.

3. John Mayer — Life

When he dated Taylor Swift: 2009-2010

Why he is Life: John Mayer loves Life cereal. He said so in a January 2015 tweet. He once even wrote a song about Life cereal. It was called "Heart of Life." His extreme love of Life cereal resembles his extreme love of himself; therefore, he is Life cereal.

Why he is Trix: It is common knowledge that Trix are for kids. At a barely legal 18 years old, Conor Kennedy was basically a kid himself when he and Taylor, who was 22 at the time, went out.
