I never knew any of those existed except Triples.

No snark here, truly curious - why do people collect cereal?  Does it retain value over the years?  Are there cereal swap meets?

I honestly wouldn't know.  I saw it at the dollar store and thought it was kitschy.  Value is, of course, subjective for most things.

A friend of mine has an unopened can of Slurm Surge that he's kept on his dresser since it was available.

Well - I have a 375ml bottle of Maker's Mark that I dipped in wax myself at the distillery.  None of us seems to be a collector, though.

I do wonder, though, what makes people collect food items.  <shrug>

It is still available but it tastes absolutely nothing like it used to. That's true of most cereals though, they've reformulated them all to make them "healthier" or just to save money. I've found that many of the cheap generic clone brands taste much more like the originals than the actual big brand names do.

Most of those were garbage.

A list of 80s cereals would be better. Already posted is the excellent Smurfberry Crunch.
 
2013-05-05 05:51:26 PM  
Ahh, Ralston cereals.  They made one for every major movie or TV show or product they could get their hands on.  The fact that Ralston and Purina are the same company says a bit about how they actually tasted.

Of the ones listed, I had The Addams Family (not great, not awful), Ninja Turtles, Hidden Treasures (not with milk though), Sprinkle Spangles (how and why, I don't know, they we're kind of okay, but you got sick of them fast), possibly Triples (there were a few cereals like that at the time, mixing different flavors, and they weren't bad), Teddy Grahams Breakfast Bears (forgot all about that one, too), French Toast Crunch, and Deep Sea Crunch (actually this was good).

We did that when I was a kid (called it a mixed bowl).  Same with cokes (which had a much different name).  And yesterday I had a bowl of frosted flakes/rice krispies, which was less about mixing flavors, and more about having two nearly empty cereal boxes needing eaten...

I never got to have any of these as a kid. We did have froot loops on a few odd occasions, but my dad would cut them with Cheerios.

I remember being in 2nd grade at a birthday party and one of the moms was handing out diet sodas, and I said, "I can't drink that." And she said, "Why?" And I said, "It causes cancer." And the kids were all staring at me and the mother started reassuring them saying something like, "Some people worry about the soda, but it's OK." My parents kind of turned me into a killjoy.

I'm honestly surprised they haven't came out with My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic cereal. Something like Derpy Grahams, Twilight Sparkle Stars,  Rarity Rice Crunch, Pinkie's Pieberry O's, Rainbow Dash's fruit assortment, Fluttershy's Fudge squares...etc..

Or Hasbro could tie in with Kellogg's and make Applejack's Apple Jacks.

Addams Family cereal was freaking delicious. I remember it being on shelves long long after the movie had come and gone.

Then again, I was a kid, so my tastebuds were shiatty and my sense of the passage of time was all kinds of farked up.
 
2013-05-05 06:02:51 PM  
I recall most of those, but the only one I remember eating was Triples. My parents weren't against sugary/neon/marshmallowed/etc cereals, but I never liked them. I remember being disgusted at eating Lucky Charms and Fruit Loops when I stayed overnight at friends' homes. My favorite cereal as a kid was raisin bran.

I was going to ask where Crispy Critters was, but apparently that was an 80s thing. I remember being into those briefly.

Crispy Critters was good, I seem to remember they tried out a lot of interesting cereals in the 80's.  Ice Cream Cones was pretty good, too.  Didn't last long.  I think there was a trend to put two different flavors of cereal in one box, in two separate bags, a lot of cereals did that.

I want to invent a cereal that makes it's own milk. Call it "Boobie-O's" shaped like little tits. Just put them in a bowl and out squirts milk.

It was more like getting a 250psi sandblaster to the roof of the mouth.

I still mix sodas.  Mostly it's half Coca-cola, half Dr Pepper, and call it Black Gold.  Used to do it with 5/6ths Sprite, 1/6th Diet Coke... tasted like liquid sugar, until it started tasting like ass.

I love that cereal, too, but it is vastly different from when it first came out. It actually had cinnamon on each little square, instead of brown colored stripes :( It was also infinitely more delicious than it is now, but such is life (no pun intended).
 
2013-05-05 06:28:35 PM  
The best cereals were from the 70's. Pure 100% real sugar when it was still bad for you; and food colorings in shades that not only caused cancer if you ate them, but merely if you looked at them. Zero nutritive value! But a healthy part of this complete breakfast!

That always made me laugh. A full bowl of cereal, two pieces of toast, two eggs, a glass of milk AND a glass of orange juice, all at the same time, touted as healthy and necessary. The only kids who could eat and drink that much every morning were the fat kids.

I can still hear the jingle:

I know this because I translated the jingle into French for a project in 7th grade circa 1978.

It never replaced my beloved Booberry blue-milk cereal though.

This. In fact, Joe's O's from Trader Joe's is more like the Cheerios that I remember as a kid. I bought Cheerios recently and found them blander and mushier. I think they reformulated them to make them safer and more wholesome for babies, for whom it's often their first solid food.

Keizer_Ghidorah: Gyrfalcon: The best cereals were from the 70's. Pure 100% real sugar when it was still bad for you; and food colorings in shades that not only caused cancer if you ate them, but merely if you looked at them. Zero nutritive value! But a healthy part of this complete breakfast!

That always made me laugh. A full bowl of cereal, two pieces of toast, two eggs, a glass of milk AND a glass of orange juice, all at the same time, touted as healthy and necessary. The only kids who could eat and drink that much every morning were the fat kids.


If you had the toast, eggs, bacon and juice, WTF were you having a bowl of cereal for anyway? I never knew anyone who had that kind of breakfast, except on Sundays. But oh, the joys of eating "cereal" that was 110% sugar, 50% chemical additives, 90% food coloring and .021% added vitamins. And I still have all my teeth!

When I ate cereal, it bothered me a lot if the cereal ran out before the milk and vice-versa.

So, eat cereal, add cereal, eat more, add milk, etc. until box and/or milk carton empty.

Thanx IS015963 for Kaboom nostalgia.

Kellog's made a Spiderman cereal that was unnaturally red and unnaturally tasty.

Oreo O's and French Toast Crunch were awesome.

I'm pretty open to just about any "sugar cereal." Breakfast ain't breakfast without increasing your risk of tooth decay exponentially.

Who's going to be nostalgic for Cinnamon Jacks when they inevitably get discontinued?

I'm sure you're right; the first time I ever tasted Cinnamon Toast Crunch was definitely post-2001 (Costco provided a coupon) and it wasn't just bad, it was horrible.  I don't know anything about "healthier;" it couldn't have been that.
 
2013-05-05 09:59:18 PM  
I know it's not a 90s cereal but god help me this stuff was amazing:

jimhillmedia.com

This was Cocoa Puffs + the marshmallows from Lucky Charms + more sugar.  It's as close to Calvin's Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs as you could possibly get.

Also I am not saying that the above definition isn't necessarily crap, but it's not the same kind of crap that most promotional cereals are.  It was fairly tasty, nutritional issues notwithstanding.

I think Honeycombs are the worst change I've seen. In the 80s they were huge pieces of sweet puffed wheat, I used to eat them right out of the box as a kid. Then they switched to that bran blend formula or whatever they call it sometime in the 2000s and now they are disgusting little shrunken bits of awfulness.
 
2013-05-05 10:26:04 PM  
Hm. I missed out on all of these. And I'm using the word "missed" very loosely. (None of them look very edible, except maybe French Toast Crunch.) My parents were definitely fans of cereal without marshmallows, and my brother and I learned to appreciate Cheerios, Chex, Corn Flakes... the classics. Sweet cereals were had at the baby sitter's, and on camping trips.

I do miss Sun Crunchers, though. Anyone else remember that one?

I remember eating Triples often during high school, but stopped eating cereal almost altogether in college (no more early mornings, whooo!), but when I started looking for it again about four or five years later it was nowhere to be found. Pity, it had good flavor and wasn't as unhealthy as a lot of other stuff.

As someone else mentioned upthread, I had Rice Krispies Treats cereal once yeeeears ago and was surprised. Tasty! Crunchy and sweet, and it had the right texture for a marshmallow glaze without being overly saccharine. Which makes me sad because packaged Rice Krispy Treats are absolute ass right now. (They almost feel greasy. What the FARK.) Homemade or GTFO. The assholes who changed the recipes on all of the good old snacks/treats by replacing sugar with HFCS need to DIAF. Slowly. And I've got a very vague, faint memory of having the Ice Cream Cone cereal when I was visiting my grandparents when I was five or six. I think. I just remember it being really good, and I'm honestly not sure if it's because it actually was good, or my kid-brain automatically associated sugary food with "yummy."

Hmm, now that I'm thinking about it, I ate a lot of different types of cereal growing up, but stopped after high school because fark mornings and everything about them. The only ones I didn't care for much were the Cap'n Crunch-styles ones, because they tasted a bit weird and they shredded my mouth as if glass particles and sandpaper snippets had been mixed in. Or the heavily fruit-flavored ones, those were really weird. Otherwise, most cereals were fair game.

Quake (as a heavier set miner) and Quisp came out in 1964. In 1969, Quake was reimagined as an Aussie... slimmer, and with the white hat instead of a miner's helmet. Every time the company pitted Quisp and Quake against each other in popularity polls, Quisp won. Quake died out by the mid 1970s.

I had some of that a month ago. My gf bought a box since she loves Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but had a bowl of this abomination. I hate wasting food so I had to finish this offensively bland, tasetless affront to the "Toast Crunch" name.

Apparently I need adult supervision before posting.

She had one bowl and wouldn't touch it afterwards, so I had to finish the box.

Saberus Terras: Like others I had (and enjoyed) Triples... and the Croonchy Stars.  Oreo O's made me gag.


Dralenan: We did that when I was a kid (called it a mixed bowl).  Same with cokes (which had a much different name).  And yesterday I had a bowl of frosted flakes/rice krispies, which was less about mixing flavors, and more about having two nearly empty cereal boxes needing eaten...

I still mix sodas.  Mostly it's half Coca-cola, half Dr Pepper, and call it Black Gold.  Used to do it with 5/6ths Sprite, 1/6th Diet Coke... tasted like liquid sugar, until it started tasting like ass.


My mom used to give us Pepsi Milk. Which is just what it sounds like. 1/2 of each. I guess it was her way of getting us to drink milk.

I'm pretty sure I still have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cereal bowls that came with the craptastic cereal somewhere in a box at the parent's house.

Now only if I can find some dumb ass to buy them for a ridiculous price.

Skyfrog: antidisestablishmentarianism: Oreo O's were stupid sugary delicious. And you can't get Cinnamon Toast Crunch anymore?

It is still available but it tastes absolutely nothing like it used to. That's true of most cereals though, they've reformulated them all to make them "healthier" or just to save money. I've found that many of the cheap generic clone brands taste much more like the originals than the actual big brand names do.


Exactly. Like Honey Smacks are just God awful to me but if you go buy the generic Walmart or Winn Dixie brands they taste just like the old sugar smacks use to taste.

Dr. Q Alias: I wonder how the person who won that $20,000 scholarship from the Ghostbusters cereal feels when they tell people how they paid for college.


I imagine much the same as everyone else who stripped for three years of college, and then two more.

I read a theory in one of the old cereal threads that it's because they don't have the rights to the modern formulations but they can still clone the old ones. Not sure if that's true or not but either way they definitely do taste better and they're usually much less expensive.

Yep. Laverne drank milk and Pepsi all the time.

corridor: cameroncrazy1984: I think I bought some French Toast Crunch recently, but my proximity to Canada probably means that our stores get it from there.

Yeah, I'm in Florida, and I'm pretty sure I just saw this at Winn Dixie a couple of days ago.
