product placement for things that that you are nostalgia does not equal a golden age.

That was about 4 different kinds of cereal in 25 shapes.

Some of those, if I saw them at the store, I'd be grabbing them without even thinking twice. Oh Nerds cereal, how I miss you.

Came for the Ice Cream Cones, left happy. Ice Cream Jones is the man, and was the sysop's name at one of my favorite dial-up BBS's in the early-mid 90s, so it's like double nostalgia for me.

Dunkin' Donuts Cereal - do they have to pay royalties to John Belushi's estate?

Oh man, I *really* miss Smurf Berry Crunch, I can still taste it... that was like crack for kids back in day!  Nerds serial was pretty good too. Can't remember If I got the Nintendo one or not... probably did but don't recall it.

Nintendo cereal *sigh*. Many an episode of Garfield & Friends was watched whilst consumed that.

I don't remember Cröonchy Stars Cereal, but the fact that it has no artificial colors and no doorknobs makes me laugh.

My parents refused to buy sugary cereals. We had to make do with plain Cheerios or Wheaties, or GrapeNuts. Sleeping over at friends' houses was always a treat - Fruit Loops for breakfast!

Know how I know the "author" wasn't actually alive in the 80s?

As my username indicates, I approve of this headline. Though the flavor of this cereal is long gone from my memory, the jingle lives on.

At least we can all comment on how insipid this article is, unlike the sponsored links.

So there's that.

I'm pretty sure Colon Blow was 1989. But that wasn't so much cereal as wood shavings I found on the floor and screws from the hardware store.

Banana Frosted Flakes?

HEAD ASPLODE!


I've had most of those. Smurfberry Crunch was pretty good.
Mr. T cereal was just Cap N Crunch, so were a few others on the list
Nintendo Cereal was farking disgusting.
They should have listed TMNT cereal, or maybe that was 90s. NASTY.

My parents mostly refused those sort of cereals.. but I did have #23, Donkey Kong Cereal, right after I got braces, because it was soft enough not to bother my sensitive teeth much.

Years later, I finally tried standard Captain Crunch and found it similar.

My mom refused to let me have sugary cereal as a child because she was convinced they caused cancer.  I never had Ice Cream Cones cereal.  That is a vacancy in my soul that will never heal.

Meh. The 70s were better. By the time the 80s rolled around they were no longer put good toys in the boxes due to fears of kids choking on the baking soda submarines. What did the cereals shown have? Stickers? Blah. Might as well eat oatmeal.

I very much miss the ET and Smurfberry Crunch ones.

I'm doing my grocery shopping today-are there any GOOD breakfast cereals out there anymore?

Smurf Berry Crunch was the jam.

And who else had the commercial music running through their head when they looked at each cereal?

My favorite involving cereal in the 80's was when they took Captain Crunch's picture off the box as a promotional gimmick. What made it so cool was how the Morning Zoo in Houston dealt with it. They got a call from Captain Crunch.

"I've been kidnapped."

He said the kidnappers looked a lot like Snap, Crackle, and Pop.

Funny- some of the breakfast cereal names.
Not so funny- panicking several hours later because you were crapping red, blue or purple food colouring.

Yes.

The Smurfberry Crunch jingle has been an ear worm for me for many, many years. Dammit.

Smurfberry Crunch was soooo delicious. I wish they would bring it back. I never eat cereal anymore but I would make an exception for that. And how did I never realize there was a Strawberry Shortcake cereal? Strawberry flavored milk leftover in the bowl? Mmmmmm

Saturday subby, this is Sunday, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal:

2013-02-17 09:30:16 AM
I've eaten better than half of those. Never had croonchy stars after seeing it, my 80's breakfast lineup seems incomplete, c3po was lame tasting but I had to have it when I was 4 or 5 or 6.

pacman cereal however was excellent and part of a nutritious breakfast but only if you left it on the table beside the mini wheats and orange slices. Unfortunately due to pacman cereal I now have a sick obsession with lucky charms, in  the morning I can eat a days worth of calories in one sitting.

Now that I have my own kids I only get the shiatty cereal around the marshmellows

I want Vanilla Cookie Crisp!!! I saw there a new Scooby Doo cereal by Kellogs. It says "VANILLA FLAVORED CEREAL", but the dire lack of sugar and flavor means I will most likely be throwing the box away in a few months with only one bowl consumed. So sad... bring back sugar dammit!!!
 
2013-02-17 09:35:24 AM
Ok, so how many cereals were just Cap'n Crunch in a different shape?  King Vitamin, Quisp, Quake.  There must be tons of them.
 
2013-02-17 09:36:22 AM
Buzzfeed needs to choke on black porn cock, however S'mores crunch was goddamn delicious back in the day.

/it's for breakfast, wow
 
2013-02-17 09:38:25 AM
Ahhh, yes, 80's cereal. Only in the 80's could a pet food company have cornered the market on yummy breakfast options.

Damn. Now it's stuck in my head. Will have to dig out my "mini piano" I mailed in for. This was my cereal too.

My vote says the 70's were better.  Quisp and Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs ftw.
