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.

I love this cereal, but can you still buy it? I haven't seen it in a long time.

As a 12-year-old, this was good. It's just that it turned my.... ahem... it gave me the most colorful you-know-what in the neighborhood. Which was pretty funny to look at. If you're a 12 year old boy.

The absolute best cereal ever! My husband and I both miss it so much. If you ask me, it would benefit General Mills to put KABOOM back on the market. I know a lot of people that feel the same way. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Thank you.

As I was growing up, Kaboom always has been my favorite cereal. Now, I'm 13 years old and I can not find the product in stores as of today.

Omg, I absolutely loved this cereal and was upset when they no longer made it. I would love for them to bring it back. I used to buy boxes at a time.

Bring it back... the original way. This was one of my very favorite cereals.

I love Kaboom. Please bring it back.

General Mills needs to bring this cereal back. My children grew up on this and it is one of the best cereals going. Please distribute nationwide!
Comment submitted: 11/7/2013 (#15274)
General Mills, bring this back now please! The best cereal ever. Want to make money, then just bring it back. Please make sure it sells in California.

I have been craving this cereal for over a year and it is no where to be found around Indiana. I wish they would bring it back. What happened anyway?
Comment submitted: 9/11/2013 (#13933)
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

My fondest childhood memory. To this day, the best tasting cereal ever made. There is a large cult following for this. It can't come back fast enough
Comment submitted: 6/26/2013 (#12562)
Bring it back! Kaboom was cool!
Comment submitted: 5/16/2013 (#12092)
I remember back when my grandma would make me a bowl of this cereal when my family and I would visit! Great memories!
Comment submitted: 4/20/2013 (#11782)
What's it going to take to bring this cereal back?
Comment submitted: 4/10/2013 (#11577)
General Mills really needs to bring this cereal back. The thought of never eating it again makes me so sad.

Loved the cereal as a kid and wouldn't mind trying some now. I hope this doesn't offend anyone but I also remember that you could always tell the next day that you had a bowl of it the day before, if you know what I mean.
Comment submitted: 3/7/2013 (#11152)
I need my Kaboom! Bring it back.
Comment submitted: 3/5/2013 (#11132)
Love this cereal and so do my kids (ages 35, 33, 25, 17). The older ones remember it best. Please bring it back. If it is still on the market, where can I get it? It was nice to once again be able to find Quisp and King Vitaman in limited areas.

Love this cereal and my kids love it too. Would like to eat it again.

Kaboom was always one of my favorites. My kids loved it also. Would love to see it come back, if only seasonal.
Comment submitted: 1/28/2013 (#10565)
Inferior cereal. Would be good in a third world country.

Bring Kaboom back, please. It seems like forever since I've seen it in a store.
Comment submitted: 1/7/2013 (#10314)
I heard you can still buy it. If you know anything, please post links. I want some.

I wish they bring back Kaboom to the way it was made back in the day. Even if it is seasonal. Miss that cereal so much!

I want some Kaboom badly. Please bring it back.

Kaboom was my favorite. Fruit Brute was my second favorite... because it tasted a little like Kaboom.

The best cereal ever! Man, I was heartbroken to read that they were discontinued. Just do us all a favor and at least bring them back for a limited time, yearly.
Comment submitted: 7/25/2012 (#8595)
I so wish I had some Kaboom cereal. There's no other cereal like it... bring Kaboom back!
Comment submitted: 7/15/2012 (#8486)
I absolutely loved Kaboom as a kid and wish they still made it! Like McFlyJr1979 said, I always remember the smell of it and it brings me right back! I would buy this all the time if they made it again.

Ohhh I love that cereal. I haven't had it since I was a kid but I would live on that stuff. Cereal is one of my favorite foods even though it's junk food pretty much. Please bring it back and I'll buy a box every time I go to the store.
Comment submitted: 5/17/2012 (#7699)
Best cereal ever and I use to find it at Piggly Wiggly and when I deployed and came back home they had removed them from the shelf. My vote is to bring them back.

The last time I found this cereal was at Wal-Mart years ago. I keep telling my boys how good it was and they are wanting to try it. I would buy 10 boxes of this if I saw it again. C'mon General Mills, GIVE US WHAT WE WANT!!!
Comment submitted: 5/12/2012 (#7647)
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. Nothing at all changed. Everything all the same. The box and the sweet taste of the cereal inside would be a gold mine.

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 ate Kaboom while I was pregnant and my kids all became honor students.

Bring back Kaboom! I loved it. I miss it. I want it! It's been forever since I saw it in the store.
Comment submitted: 4/22/2012 (#7364)
I also love Kaboom! I'll buy multiple boxes if I ever see it again. I know it's not in stores at the moment, but can it be bought online? I'll check back for replies.
Comment submitted: 3/15/2012 (#6845)
I love Kaboom! Wish I could get my hands on a box!
Comment submitted: 2/23/2012 (#6591)
Please bring back Kaboom. That is the best cereal ever. Let's all rally together to bring back Kaboom.

Best cereal ever!
Comment submitted: 12/28/2011 (#6068)
I pray to the good Lord above that this cereal is brought back to the shelves. If someone offered me a juicy steak or a bowl of Kaboom, I would have a hard decision to make.
Comment submitted: 12/15/2011 (#5972)
Bring back Kaboom!! This is one of my all time faves!
Comment submitted: 12/10/2011 (#5939)
Please bring it back. My son has cancer and keeps asking me for Kaboom. I have checked all over but can't find it anywhere.
Comment submitted: 12/6/2011 (#5897)
We need to email General Mills about bringing it back and considering that it's a sweet yet low in sugar cereal, we would have a great argument.
Comment submitted: 11/26/2011 (#5827)
Does anyone know where you can find Kaboom these days?
Comment submitted: 10/21/2011 (#5539)
I really want some Kaboom!!!!!!!! :(
Comment submitted: 9/21/2011 (#5309)
We'll always love Kaboom. I wish it was easier to find.

I could never get enough of this cereal. You have to taste it to understand. I had been eating it for about 40 years and can no longer find it any where. Why oh why do the very best things disappear. I feel like I would give a million dollars to eat this cereal again. I would definitely buy every box if I could ever find it again. I would eat it until I go Kaboom!!!!
Comment submitted: 5/29/2011 (#4935)
Kaboom is the best cereal that was ever made!

What happened to this cereal? This was one of the best cereals ever. We have looked in every store around. Please bring it back.

See if u never tried it, you can't really know how it tastes. It was good. It was like berry kix but with marshmallows. Brings back memories. I would def eat it, if I saw it.
Comment submitted: 2/8/2011 (#3870)
Kaboom was one of the lower sugar cereals. I think it had only 6 grams per serving. It also had more vitamins than other cereals. My kids loved it.
Comment submitted: 2/2/2011 (#3788)
The box reminds me of Killer Clowns from Outer Space. The taste was very chemical-y. They might-as-well have put a mime on the box.
Comment submitted: 1/27/2011 (#3746)
This would be the type of cereal that u feed ur children if u dont want them. By the end of the day they become diabetic.
Comment submitted: 1/22/2011 (#3679)
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.
Comment submitted: 1/19/2011 (#3652)
I have been looking for Kaboom! in stores for years. I guess it was not available where I live and now its discontinued. What a shame because I loved it when I was a kid. Why do they always discontinue the good cereals.
Comment submitted: 11/22/2010 (#3323)
This stuff was way better than Lucky Charms, was not as hard to chew and eat plus the color pieces tasted great!!

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.
Comment submitted: 8/27/2010 (#2736)
I emailed General Mills concerning Kaboom. They said it had been discontinued. I let them know how disappointed I was and how I wanted it back. I also referred them to the board to see how many votes it has received. Everyone contact General Mills to get our Kaboom back.

Found it last fall at a couple of Big Lots stores in the area, but it has not shown up again since then. I thought that it had already been discontinued a few years ago, but was excited to see it again, so not sure what it's status is right now....
Comment submitted: 7/9/2010 (#2418)
Mr. Breakfast - It appears that Kaboom is officially discontinued per General Mills site. So you can removed the link to buy it now.
Comment submitted: 4/6/2010 (#1853)
This has to be one of the last cereals that I would eat at least a few times a month. So sad to see it wont be sold anymore.
Comment submitted: 3/31/2010 (#1825)
I miss Kaboom. Please bring back.
Comment submitted: 2/26/2010 (#1486)
Bring it back please. I can't even get it online anymore. Kaboom forever!
Comment submitted: 1/19/2010 (#1237)
This is my all time fav cereal. It is so sad that while in the Navy I was ordering a case every 3 months to get my fix.
