It would be great if Kaboom cereal were brought back. I loved it so much. Have a heart General Mills and bring the best cereal of all time back to our breakfast selection.

Y'all gotta be the craziest group of people EVER! Yeah I remember this when i was a kid... I remember hiding it. I remember complaining when my mom walked through the door with it. It didn't have any flavor and the marshmallows were nasty too. It was a low budget Lucky Charms. Keep it real. You might as well have eaten the box. And the clown... oh I had a flashback. Leave it were it is please. #LONGLIVETONYTHETIGER

GREAT CEREAL! Unfortunately also fortified with LOTS of chemicals, sugar and food coloring. It would turn the milk green, along with other stuff a day later. That's what was great about the 1970's... sure it was bad for you, but it tasted SO GOOD!

OMG! I grew up on Kaboom cereal since the age of 8 and I am 32 now and I travel all of the way to South Carolina to get this cereal from Florida. They said that they have been discontinued and my heart was crushed. I was devastated because any one who I know that was going towards South Carolina I send money to buy extras, but it's been about 6 years now since I saw and ate the BEST CEREAL in the world. Please, please, please bring this cereal back. I think that it can bring the crime rate back down. Every time I go in a store that sells food, I always look for any box that's yellow praying that I would run into that cereal again.

I remember Kaboom cereal when it came out in 1969. My family lived in Denver, CO, and remembering the delivery boy that came to the back door of our house. I was five years old then. Kaboom cereal was a special moment because we usually ate Malt-O-Meal farina hot cereal. Great moment of my youth.

Bring it back! I used to buy it by 5 to 10 boxes at a time. Then I couldn't find it. I'll do without cereal altogether before I waste my money on crap I don't like or need. I got this org. on WIC and got hooked as did my kids - all 9 loved this cereal. The 14 year-old old slams a box a day or more. Times change, kids tastes do not. Parents buy what they feel is healthy for their kids and what tastes good. Thank you, Vicky

OMG - Yes, please bring back Kaboom cereal. It's like the best cereal of all time and look at the way we raise kids these days. If General Mills sold this again, it would fly off the shelves.

I remember this. Not the revamped box but the one from the mid 80s as a kid! Another cereal people thought I made up! This had one of those smells that just STICK in your memory. They say the sense of smell is one of the strongest. A whiff of a flower you smelled 10 years ago or a perfume your grandma might have worn... the smell of this cereal brings back memories like that!

I know that they have been making Kaboom for years, but the thing about it is that they first dropped the fruit flavor and sugar coating in the oat cereal, and later changed it to corn cereal sill unsweetened and unflavored and changed the marshmallows from stars to circus animals.

My cousins and I lived off of this cereal when we were kids. This cereal was awesome and I was sad when one day it just disappeared. I am very displeased it has been discontinued. I eat cereal every day for breakfast and if Kaboom was in stores for sale it would be eaten every day by me. General Mills desperately needs to bring back Kaboom as I'm sure there are thousands, possibly millions, like me who miss it and would buy a lot of it.
