“It’s a snack, just like my wife.”
Sauce- broths both cook and impart flavor over a cooking period, and beverages typically don’t have solids in them.
@Captain Anderson, what about ice?
@110100100, Id say that doesn’t count, since it doesn’t contribute to flavor.
Edit: barring cocktails, where dilution is a significant flavoring aspect, but they’re exclusively drinks by definition
@Captain Anderson, sauces cover foods or are used as dips. Think pizza sauce, Alfredo sauce etc. They are not something that food is meant to lay in. Rather it is a broth, just like soup is IN a broth, cereal Is IN milk. Obviously not a beverage though since you eat it. Also milk adds the flavor of milk to your cereal.
@Captain Anderson, but vomit has some semi solids and it’s a beverage.
@BearDaniels, I guess your wife can live...for now

It's a soup if you really want to call it anything but cereal, if you want to refer to the liquid specifically it becomes cereal broth
Milk in cereal is, well, milk. Much like a soup can have different broths, and bowl of cereal has different “milks.” Soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, etc. same applies to things that are cooked with milk. Admittedly, lately there have been some regulations on non-dairy milks forcing them to rebrand themselves as “drinks,” for example, “soy drink.” But the terminology is still relatively similar. Because no one says, “I use soy drink in my cereal.”
