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.

Stavr0: List is worthless without

I think I had that one, too.  Another one I forgot about.

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.

I would eat the shiat out of any food product bearing Captain Murphy's endorsement.

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.
 
2013-05-05 06:07:37 PM
"Again" would imply that I ever ate any of those.  However:

was the shiat.

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.

Why Would I Read the Article: antidisestablishmentarianism: And you can't get Cinnamon Toast Crunch anymore?

It's on sale today at the Safeway in North Beach (san francisco) for $2.99 per box. If CTC isn't available where you live, you should probably move. Eating a bowl of that delicious, cinnamony treat is just like getting a hug from the universe.


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

Not that this ever kept me from eating it, of course.

Spider-man cereal was one of my favorite things ever.

I'll just leave this here. 80's, I know, but if you came of age in the 90s, you're not old enough to be nostalgic yet.

Oh my god, yes! Whenever I'm asked about my favorite cereal, but sadly, nobody ever knows what I'm talking about!

ecmoRandomNumbers: I never knew any of those existed except Triples.


I've heard of a few.  I haven't actually seen any of them.
 
2013-05-05 06:22:30 PM
I did not RTFA but I suspect it's just a collection of sugared cereals that tried to capitalize on some feature of popular culture of the time. However, I would love it if I could find Team Flakes again. They were awesome.

No chocolate frosted sugar bombs?

ecmoRandomNumbers: I never knew any of those existed except Triples.


Weird, that's the only one I remember, too. The only one I ever ate, either. It's also strange that more recent cereals are no longer being made but ones I ate as a child, like Cap'n Crunch, are still around.
 
2013-05-05 06:25:03 PM
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.

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).

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!
 
2013-05-05 06:29:11 PM
The only cereal I miss is Alpha-Bits.

Gimme back my farking Alpha-Bits.

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.

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.

Geez. No wonder there is an obesity problem.

Godscrack: I don't think I ever bought cereal in the 90's.

[www.cerealbits.com image 344x500]

Still the best.


I can still hear the jingle:

"My best friend is a cow - How now, crazy cow! Makes chocolate milk - Wow! How now, crazy cow!"

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.

They forgot Rice Krispies Treats cereal. But that's a pretty substantial list. Still, I don't think some of those should count because they were movie tie-ins.
 
2013-05-05 06:46:04 PM
The 90's were truly a golden age of junk food, the likes of which we may never see again.
 
2013-05-05 06:47:44 PM
Do they still make "Razzle Dazzle Rice Crispies"?   I was pretty sure that was a 90's only cereal.
 
2013-05-05 06:48:40 PM
French Toast Crunch is still around.  In Canada, at least.

I developed lactose intolerance in the 80s, and I hate sugary fake-fruit crap, so I never had any of those.

Didn't miss much, did I?

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.

I'd also like to find some of this:

I'm pretty sure it's still made, you just can't buy it here.

I remember Reptar Crunch and Sprinkle Spangles being delicious. Oreo-Os, though... too much, man. Too much.
 
2013-05-05 07:00:38 PM
was expecting this to be one of those tasteless sponsored links you can't comment on.  Hate those things.

I miss some of these cereals
 
2013-05-05 07:04:08 PM
Any cereal that mixes marshmallows and Chex bits are farking heavenly. Does anyone know of a cereal still around that has both?
 
2013-05-05 07:10:10 PM

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.


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.

Msol: What's up with the Ninja Turtles' expressions on their box? What is that, coy?

Also, I don't know how I feel about this, from the linked article.

I came to post that. To me they look like they are under duress. Like off camera someone is holding a taser to Splinter's rat balls.
