I disagree.  The Coco Krispie, properly appreciated, gives one an appropriate appreciation of chives since it cleanses the palette.  It also allows one to visualize the appropriate effects of marination.  So, in essence, the Coco Krispie is the building block of the Chateau of culinary attainment.

Yellow noxious onions are for when you want a kick-yo-ass onion flavor such as in french onion soup (properly made) or to make stock or in red sauces or chilis.  White onions are for when you want a clean onion flavor such as on a Chicago hot dog or with liver and onions or perhaps on a burrito.  Vidalias are best caramelized.

The delicate chive is best tasted with something understated.  Such as mushrooms sauteed in butter, or on a baked potato.  There the subtle flavor of the chive rises gently above the soft tastes of the fungus and the spud.  A place where onion of any kind would be overstated.  Chives need to be delicately cooked, not man-handled or fried or such as one would do with onions.

A few bowls of Coco Krispies, or even better, some Coco Krispie Treats, will give you a better perspective, Doc.
