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!
Here's a complete list of Taylor Swift's boyfriends, arranged by what kind of cereal they'd be.
1. Joe Jonas — Boo Berry

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
3. John Mayer — Life
When he dated Taylor Swift: 2009-2010
