I'm not sure I agree with fonio being listed separate from millet.
Dec 7th, 2008 at 16:06 GMT
Never even heard of triticale.
Dec 22nd, 2008 at 01:38 GMT
A form of triticale is featured in the Star Trek episode The Trouble with Tribbles. Where is buckwheat?

What is the source for these figures? I don't doubt them, I'm just curious, and I am wondering where such "ancient grains" as spelt and quinoa might fit into the list.
Jan 24th, 2009 at 14:37 GMT
spelt=type of wheat quinoa and buckwheat= not real cereals Oddly these came to my head in almost exactly the order they're listed
Jan 25th, 2009 at 11:16 GMT
Quinoa is #12 on the list at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cereal but the list here at sporcle seems to (quite rightly) exclude pseudocereals such as buckwheat and quinoa

Being a homebrewer makes this quiz rather easy.
Apr 6th, 2009 at 18:47 GMT
I have never heard of half of these, is that a good thing?
Apr 13th, 2009 at 01:39 GMT
Shouldn't typing oat work too or does it really need to be pluralized?

I'm surprised oilseed rape isn't there too
May 14th, 2009 at 16:59 GMT
all this talk about oilseed rape is making me hungry
Nov 1st, 2009 at 01:59 GMT
Ahh, the advantage of having celiac disease -- I just had to list everything I can't eat! Though that doesn't explain how I managed to miss the gluten-free fonio...whoops. One question/criticism: If "millets" is already on the list, and fonio *is* a millet, shouldn't it be grouped with that?
Dec 10th, 2009 at 19:24 GMT
Yeah - fonio is a type of millet, yes?
Dec 19th, 2009 at 17:30 GMT
wheat. that's all i know. :)
Jan 2nd, 2010 at 00:23 GMT
is triticale a kind of wheat? I nearly listed ergot not a grain, a fungus!
Jan 23rd, 2010 at 01:43 GMT
Triticale is the cross of wheat and rye. I've never heard of folio.
Mar 21st, 2010 at 20:34 GMT
OMG thats why they make corn mazes, because corn = maize so its a "maize maze"
Apr 1st, 2010 at 18:03 GMT
i've heard of sorghum...it's probably sad that i knew the rest of the grains :(
May 27th, 2010 at 20:32 GMT
thought i had to name the types of cereal...
Aug 4th, 2011 at 13:58 GMT
they missed the biggest cereal crop of all - sugar!
Sep 22nd, 2011 at 04:29 GMT
I just can't WAIT until they come out with Fonio Chex!!!!!!!!!
Mar 29th, 2012 at 10:30 GMT
Well, yopu learn something new every day. Looked the ones up that was expecting here afterwards, and yup, neither alfalfa nor canola is a cereal... and neither is rapeseed/oilseed rape, @massivetits and @LaStic...
Mar 29th, 2012 at 19:03 GMT
I missed corn, but I tried pasta. I'm embarrassed at myself.
Aug 10th, 2012 at 13:00 GMT
Not sure if hibernia was being serious or not, but sugarcane is the worlds leading cash crop. Though perhaps because the stalk is harvested and not the seeds, it is not listed as a grain producing crop.
Jan 6th, 2013 at 01:36 GMT
9/10, how dubious. I got triticale but not fonio. Don't you hate getting one of the hard ones but not the other?
