Back in the 60's there was a cereal with sweet, flat, round discs. We called them 'smashed raisins' because they were with flakes like you would find in raisin bran. Does anyone remember this and have a name?

I live in Hermitage, TN; a suburb of Nashville. I used to find Banana Nut Cheerios at my local Walmart but for the past 6 months, have been unable to find it. Walmart says that they do not carry it anymore. Can you please tell me where I can find it? I mix it with Honey Nut Cheerios and it is my very favorite. Please help me find it.

Trying to find name of hot cereal my husband loved as a child in the late '50's. It was white and lumpy but not Cream of Wheat or Rice... in Westchester county NY. Thoughts?

Official Member: Team BreakfastIs Kellogg's crazy? Bring Danish Go Rounds back! They're missing the boat on gaining market share and product loyalty from those '60s and '70s kids that would now share this product with our own now adult children as well as our grandchildren.

Official Member: Team BreakfastApitezo, advertised in the early 1900s, here is a newspaper ad for it, came as both "biscuits" and "grains". Another possibly: "Nu-Life", from the early 1900s, see 1903 article "Simple Simon Down to Date", which mentions it as "whole wheat, twice cooked, and is ready to serve". It calls it a flake.

Also "IT" cereal - an ad from 1903 calls it "the new and better breakfast food", says "You will live longer if you eat It", and notes it requires no cooking. The ad appears February 5 1903. It seems the cereal was introduced in 1903.

Hi, Mr. Breakfast! I'm not seeing Maltex, Cream of Rice, or Cream of Wheat in your (awesome) list. All three are/were hot cereals (as you know). Also, in the 1960s (and probably before) there was a flake cereal that had lots of small (1/4"?), raisin-colored discs (which were basically flat and circular). I'd think that these discs were made from dried raisins. For the life of me, I can't recall the name of that cereal! I'm confident that it was made by one of the huge, well-known cereal companies--maybe Post, Kellogg's, General Mills, Nabisco, etc.

Official Member: Team BreakfastA cereal which may be of interest, "Jersey Jems" from circa 1928. They are described in an ad as a "delicious new breakfast dish" and as being "golden-brown kernels of toasted rice and other grains". Since there is quite a bit of interest in the Jersey Cereal Company, I feel they may be eligible to be listed on here.

Official Member: Team BreakfastI am glad I found this website. I am looking for the name of a cereal from the 70's that was a brown disk about the diameter of a penny, but about as thick as three pennies. I remember the commercial... it was animated and they would stack the cereal like coins, but they didn't resemble an actual coin they looked like they would be chocolate but they weren't. I have searched the Breakfast lists but can't find the name.

Note From Mr Breakfast: I thing the cereal you're looking for is Wheat Stax from General Mills.

Official Member: Team BreakfastBack around 2000-2002 or so, there was a cereal I believe was called "Krunchin' Rice Krispies", but I can't seem to find it ANYWHERE on the Internet. All I really remember where that the cereal pieces where large chunks as opposed to flaky, and the commercials for the cereal involved Snap, Crackle, and Pop standing on a Billboard and the police telling them to get down.

Do you have a page for Cera Nut Flakes? I don't know when they were sold from, but they appear in ads circa 1902-1904. One of these ads describes it as being a product of "National Pure Food Co. Ltd" and describes it as "made from wheat and nuts - crisp and delicious"

In this 1904 advertisement, there is a mention of a cereal called "It", yes It, which is described as "the new cereal, healthful, delicious".

I haven't tried them myself, but there was a cereal in the early 1900s called Voigt Cream Flakes by the Voigt Cereal Food Co. Ltd. Advertisements for them appear in several 1903 newspapers. I don't know when they were introduced, but the earliest ads I came across come from 1903 and the latest come from 1911. I hope this information is useful, and that the cereal is eligible to have a listing on this website.

I found a cereal that doesn't have a page yet: Post Great Grains Cranberry Almond Crunch. I think it's the only Great Grains flavor without one. After searching the database I found an unrelated cereal from Post called Cranberry Almond Crunch that appears to have been discontinued, so maybe this kind is a rebranding of sorts?

Official Member: Team BreakfastI remember a wheat cereal from a major cereal company called Stax, or Staks, something like that. Thick roundish disks about the size of a quarter and thick as 2 quarters. Not solid, it was honeycombed inside. The gimmick was how many you could stack up. Late 60s up to maybe early 70s. Stayed crisp in milk, maybe too crisp, they could shred the inside of our mouth.

It was supposed to be used as added protein like wheat germ. It came in a small gold box with a metal spout on the side. Let me know if I'm correct. All I know is that the box barely lasted 2 days and it cost a little more than regular cereal.

In support of comment 204, as a child in the 1960's, I ate a cold cereal that is like crushed Wheat Chexs. It came in a paper bag with a resealable metal strip at the top that you rolled down and bent the tabs. I remember that it was bought at the local feed mill located in Cattaraugus County in NY. I remember it being called Sheddies but this is unlike the Sheddies in your databases which were squares.

There is one cereal that I remember, although I can't be sure of the name, I believe it was Old Fashioned Apple Raisin Crisp. It had flakes that were not flat like Wheaties (I believe they were made with oatmeal) and there were dried apple bits on them and I believe there were raisins in it. I can tell you the year (time frame) I know I had them was around 1986/1987. Beyond that, I don't remember anything other than I loved that cereal. Hope someone can remember something about them. :)

Official Member: Team BreakfastIn 1950s, my mom fed me a warm cereal, similar to Cream O Wheat, that was brown in color and she served it to us putting butter on it. Was much more flavor than C-O-Wheat. Decades later I asked her what it was and she says Grape Nuts. Might be having dementia setting in. It was not nugget sized like current GN, but again more like C-O-Wheat. Came in a box similar to C-O-Wheat. Have hunted sites like this, but no clues yet. Tried Wheatena, it is definitely NOT it. Thats very nasty stuff. Pored it out in the flowerbeds...

Some stuff for your excellent Chex Family page... I have color ads of most for confirmation or pix...

missing: Graham Chex 1993
missing: Frosted Rice Chex Juniors 1991

Double Chex... I have 1988 not 1992. Also 2 versions; Rice+wheat, Corn+Wheat. I Heart Double Chex: same 2 versions

Dates: frosted mini 2001....sugar frosted 1968...bran 1977....honey graham 1987....super sugar 1974

Wheat Chex began as Shredded Ralston... like tiny shredded wheat pillows... name changed around 1950, couple years later, shape changed to criss-cross like rice & corn...

I would add from 1966 Mr Waffles, regular and banana... these were Chex-shaped and no doubt lead to sugar frosted, sugar, and super sugar...

Finally, I have a question... random references here and there to an Oat Chex in the 1960s... I've never seen it... you?

Official Member: Team BreakfastI'm looking for a fruity cereal with marshmallows in a blue box from the early 70s. I believe it was only around a few years. I loved it and it was quickly gone from shelves. It would have been like fruity alpha-bits with marshmallows, but it was not a variation of alpha-bits. I know the answer is out there somwhere...!

In the late 1960's there was a cereal available in the Niagara Falls region (NY side) that came in simple brown bags with a kind of "Ralston Purina" checkered label. The cereal could be eaten cold or hot, and was a malted-wheat; the consistency was that of 'shreds' but these were a bit thicker than if you had crumbled a shredded wheat biscuit, and they were darker -- more like the color of Wheat Chex. The cereal seems to have disappeared, though it had a flavor and texture that rivaled anything else, hot or cold, on the market. Anyone else know more about this?

Post Bran'ola! I haven't seen it in years, but I used to eat it as a kid because it was actually really good.

I remember as a child I loved Kellogg's Sugar Stars. They were shaped like stars and had a caramel taste to them.

Official Member: Team BreakfastHey great site and list! I'm just posting a missing cereal for you to add. There's not much information about this cereal but It's Strawberry Rice Krispies from 1983 and a similar "strawberry krispies" that was on the shelves in 1997. I vaguely remember the 1997 version, here's the link from where i found it.

Trying to recall a cereal from the 70's or 80's featuring a turtle wearing a mask and wielding a sword (Touche Turtle?). Did I miss it on here?

Official Member: Team BreakfastI don't know if anyone remembers this cereal. It was the early 70's. It was in a small gold-paper wrapped box, I don't remember the name. It was the size of a Grapenuts box. I was born in 1966 so I think it was maybe '72. The cereal were very tiny round flat discs, golden colored. I just remember it was yummy. Does anyone remember that cereal?

Also Buckwheats. I LOVED that cereal too.

Thanks, Laurie

Post By Mr BreakfastTo Carrie - I know the cereal you're thinking of... Quake (from Quaker)... the character on the box was a miner. Then he became a cowboy. Attaching link. Is this the one?

I remember a cereal from the early 80s that was orange flavored and the box had a cowboy with a lasso on it. Does anyone else remember this or am I just crazy?

Post By Mr BreakfastTo Dana000 - Good news! You're not crazy. The cereal was actually called Kaleido Rice Krispies and it came out in 1995. I was able to find a pic of the box (see link below). Thanks for asking about this one... it wasn't in the database until I looked for it based on your note. You're awesome!

I can remember a cereal called (I think) Wheaties with Raisin Flakes back in the early 1960s. It had dried, flattened raisins that were as thin as a sheet of paper, and actually quite tasty--more like grapes. One of my first disappointments was when that one was discontinued.

This might sound crazy but I remember a cereal called I think Kaleidoscope Rice Krispies - which was pretty much Rice Krispies with more colors. I can't find anything about it. Am I crazy Mr Breakfast? Cheers!

I remembered one that you're missing. Breakfast On The Run from probably Ralston in the early 90's. It was a box you could eat and included milk and a spoon. The cereal was basically frosted flakes, but since it had its own name, I think you might consider adding it if possible.

I remember a cereal from the early '90's called Fingos. I don't know how long it actually stayed on the market though. Here is an image (not mine) that I found on the web of it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasonliebigstuff/3984582901/

Thank you, Mr Breakfast, for giving C.W. Post Cereal a page! I hope you can get a photo of the box. I think it looked very similar to the recipe file in the photos you got from Ebay.

Post By Mr BreakfastHi Amy - Thanks so much for letting me know that C.W. Post Cereal was missing from the database. I've added a page (see link below). In researching the cereal, I discovered that there's a lot of people who really loved that cereal. I haven't been able to find a very good picture of the box. If anyone has one, please let me know. Thanks again Amy!

Update on C.W. Post Cereal: the new Honey Bunches of Oats "Just Bunches" cereal is almost identical to the old C.W. Post. It doesn't have raisins, so I guess my memory was faulty. Or maybe C.W. Post came with or without. I have a recipe file box from C.W. Post that I'd be happy to send you a photo of, but I'm not sure how to do that on your message board.

Gummi Bears Cereal! AAAARRRRG!

That's what I used to do when my grandma pulled it out. Circa 1980's, based on the Disney animated show. It was essentially a bowl full of Crunch Berries. Cannot for the life of me find it anywhere online. Just two places where it's briefly mentioned. Wish I could offer more but I would cerealsly (heh) like to see Gummi Bears Cereal on this site.

My favorite cereal when I was young was "C.W. Post". I was surprised that it wasn't on your list, either alphabetical or under Post as the manufacturer. It was probably made in the 70's (mid to late?). I recall it being a granola type cereal with raisins.

I'm not seeing Cinnamon Krunchers in your (AWSOME) list. It was my favorite cereal for a while. I wanna say around 2002. It had Tony the Tiger on the box and was from Kellogg's.
