What is the 'Cereal Market'?
The Cereal Market is an attempt to rank 'value' of cereals over time using Google search interest as an (imperfect) proxy. Basically, I wanted to see which cereal was most popular based on search interest and that devolved into this pointless exercise. I've split out specific summary pages for the cereals listed at the bottom, complete with 'price'(shown over time) and some 'fundamentals' of each cereal. Pop one of those pages open and you'll probably understand what I'm going for here.

How often is the cereal market updated?
I'm pulling weekly interest metrics, so more or less will update weekly.
