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.

I've had most of those. Smurfberry Crunch was pretty good.

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 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.

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

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!!!

same.  Golden grahams were the sugariest I could get Mom to buy.  I still love them.  Not long ago, my husband found out that I'd never had Fruity Pebbles and he immediately dropped everything and ran to the supermarket to get them.  I still like Golden Grahams better.
 
2013-02-17 09:59:57 AM  
I ate most of those. Smurfberry Crunch and Croonchy Stars were the best. The latter was Cinammon Toast Crunch in a different shape.

I was quite aware of that fact even at a young age, I just didn't care when it was one I liked. Most of their cereals were pretty much the same stuff in different shapes, sometimes with some fruit flavoring, and a licensed property on the box.

S'mores Crunch wasn't just my favorite cereal, it was my favorite FOOD.

I scrolled through that whole list of 25 boxes, waiting for it to show up... and finally, there it was, #25.  BEHOLD.  I guess I could take some dried marshmallows out of cocoa packs and mix 'em in with some Golden Grahams, but it just wouldn't be the same.

Also, anyone remember King Vitamin?  It was to Cap'n Crunch what Dr. Pepper is to Coke.  Perfect analogy.

This cereal is probably why my teeth are jagged and crooked to this day. Maybe it was because I couldn't bother to wait for the cookies to get soggy. Maybe it was because I could, and would, eat three or four bowls in one sitting. Sadly, we will never know, for the limitations time has placed on such a study.

Cookie Crisp fo' life, yo!  That was one of the highlights of the foster home.  (Long story.)  I thought it was some kind of fake.  This counts as breakfast?  But it's a bowl full of cookies.

That was when I finally understood the whole "part of a balanced/complete breakfast" thing.  Breakfast doesn't need cereal to be balanced or complete.
 
2013-02-17 04:48:52 PM  
"If you love cookies, you'll love cookie crisp!"  "Silly rabiit!  Trix are for kids."  That's all I remember of the commercials of cereals my mother would not buy.  I got Cherios or farkin Corn Flakes.  Apparently, she cared about her kids not eating a bowl full of milk and sugar for breakfast.  I thought she was so oppressive, with all that conscientiousness.

StranahansBarracuda: I picked Kaboom!  Every color in the rainbow in smiling faces and a big ole clown on the box.


About 10 years ago, I was wandering down the cereal aisle and I saw boxes of Kaboom on the shelves. I hadn't had any of it since I was about five years old(in other words, about 25 years, at the time). I grabbed a box for old times sake and raced home to have a bowl.

I was disappointed to say the least. Let's just say the memory of eating them in the past was a LOT better than actually eating them in the present.

Ralston would apparently license anything into a cereal.

/my parents would not allow sugary cereals, so I don't remember most of these.  They would buy wheetabix, which is an even worse shredded wheat.

LDM90: IgG4: product placement for things that that you are nostalgia does not equal a golden age.

Do you wwebsite as on the internet?


I just want to thank you both for this.

The next time I'm feeling a little down, I'll think about this and get a good laugh.

It's the way your palette changes as you age.  When you were a kid, your fantasy was to have enough money to buy every candy bar on the shelf.  As an adult, the idea of eating two candy bars back to back is probably pretty gross, unless you're used to over eating.  And savory things that kids hate are suddenly delicious.
