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.

Not shown: Almond Delight.  Because almond extract isn't crunchy on its own.

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?

Graham Chex left behind the best milk ever.  I swear I would buy a whole jar of that dust just to make milkshakes with.  It was seriously tasty.

So this is what is green-lit now? A Buzzfeed story that was a featured partner link from a month or so ago? I can't prove it but I know for a fact it was because I read it at work and my work blocks all ads. (Yea, the Barracuda firewall is pretty retarded if you ask me. If you Google something you can't click on the referral ads at the top but the same exact link is ok when it is the top result.) So, to get around this I have to copy the link and then delete Fark's redirect. I distinctly remember doing this because I wanted to know which cereals I have missed from my childhood. Turns out only Oreo O's was the only thing I really miss.

Richard Roma: Rice Krispies Treats cereal was impossibly addictive.  Not once did I have a box in the house that lasted a whole day.

Why do they always axe the best stuff?


Wally World  carries it  - a fave of mine also!

As were Team Flakes

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.

Buzzfeed is ruining Fark. Please stop clicking on their links, sponsored or not.

I like the nostalgic posts. My day was in the 60s so I don't remember any of these and thought they were fakes but evidently not.

Like it or not buzzfeed does spark some interesting threads. You can choose to participate or not. Freedom of choice and all that. It is the same as asking no one to read CNN links. Ain't gonna happen.

But wow. Nostalgia from the 90s. I am getting old.

Now how is buzzfeed ruining fark?

From the 80's not the 90's but the greatest cereal ever. The milk would get orange juicy after a minute or 2.

gregario: 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.


You are right, and I would love to see Team Flakes again as well.  The closest out there is Special K, but they don't hold a candle to Team Flakes - K gets soggy if you don't eat it fast enough.

We were lower lower lower lower middle class and mom had to shop at the grocery outlet, I ate the Batman returns cereal for like 5 years, what I'd give for a fresh box of it, Justice never tasted so good.

Well, it wouldn't surprise me, but at the same time, this particular article is dated May 3rd. Not that they couldn't have changed the date and reissued the thing. But still, you may be having some deja vu, and/or remembering the '80s version.

It's ok. A large bag of chips is still less toxic for the health than a bowl of "candy cereal"

Quake. Quisp and Quake shared commercials... created (or at least released) at the same time. Look above, there is a post with both boxes above the post with just the Quisp box.
 
2013-05-06 03:36:17 AM
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.

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.

vingamm: 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.


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.
