Hi, I googled cold cereal and found this site. I have an extremely good idea for a cereal. I have tested it randomly and everyone loves it and says I should make it and sell it. I am just wondering how to go about it with so many companies out there already. A health food store here said they are willing to sell it if I make it and they like it and think it will sell. I am clueless on ALL of this. Not really sure what to do because this actually can save lots of people around the world if this is mass produced too. It's extremely healthy and EASY is all I can say about it here. Thanks for any ideas on how to go about this. I am afraid if I collaborate with any cereal companies they will just take my idea and use them for their own profits and not mine... It is so simple I am surprised no company has thought of this idea too. Really appreciate your input. Thanks again!

There is a new cereal restaurant that opened in my area. The Bowl and Spoon Cereal Cafe opened in Hamilton Place Mall in Chattanooga. If you are in the area check it out in the food court. They have a good assortment of all types of cereals. They even take requests.

I have this memory of a cereal that I can't seem to find anywhere and it's possible that I made up the memory. Can anyone help? It's a cinnamon-sugar cereal. I seem to remember that the cartoon character was a wolf and the cereal was shaped like little circular wind wisps? Anyone have any ideas what this might be or whether or not I'm making it up? I grew up in the 90s, if that helps with a timeline?

I bought unopened boxes of Urkel O's and Batman Returns cereals off ebay and promptly opened them upon arrival and indulged. The Urkel O's tasted OK if not somewhat like Captain Crunch Berry with a papery taste, while the Batman one was rather tasteless. Who else here has bought old cereals for the sake of seeing how edible they are? I'm looking to see what else I can find that will give me an experience I'll never forget (hopefully not on the toilet... so far I seem safe there).

I USED to have a candy recipe using Popeye Sweet Puffs cereal. The main ingredients were sweet puffs, butterscotch chips, peanuts, light Karo syrup and butter(?). That candy recipe appeared on the back of the cereal bag over 20 years ago and somehow, with a couple of moves to different homes, I lost the recipe. I've been searching for several years and still cannot find it. If anyone has it, I would be very grateful if you would be so kind to share it. THANKS SO MUCH!!!

I was wondering if any of the baby-boomers here remember getting stickers out of cereal boxes from the Mercury Space program. They were the logos from the different flights. "Friendshp 7", "Sigma 7", etc. I think they came in boxes of Cap'n Crunch, but I could be mistaken. I was only 2 or 3 when they came out. Thanks in advance.

I been voting for over a year on my favorite cereal but I notice yesterday That Life got 972 votes, Super Sugar Crisp got 909, Kellogg's Corn Flakes got 434, Post Raisin Bran got 528, Cherrios got 311, Nut & Honey Crunch got 310, Kix got 191, Total got 199, Kellogg's Raisin Bran got 111 and Golden Crisp lost 300 votes. I'm only trying to be fair to all those who just vote once a day.

Wondering if anyone knows where you can buy (for a reasonable price) in the US, Jordan's Country Crisp cereal. Just went on a trip to France, and our ex-pat hosts had this amazing tasting cereal, which also seemed to be healthy! Any comments would be helpful.

Official Member: Team BreakfastHi I am looking for a picture of a doll (actual doll not paper doll) from a Kellogg box from the late 1950s. The doll is a majorette. There is a small pic posted on this site, 40% Bran Flake box, posted by crawfish Mike. It appears there is a larger pic of the doll on the back of the packaging (not posted that I can find). Appreciate any help. Thanks in advance, E

Quispnquake, thanks for your suggestion. I picked up a copy of The Great American Cereal Book at the bookstore. I was browsing through it for about two hours when I got home.

What a fun read! Plus the photos of the old boxes and memorabilia were really sharp. Great book. Thanks for turning me on to it!

Hey, cereal lovers - I just received the greatest cereal book. It's called The Great American Cereal Book. It's a really fun, funny, colorful breakfast cereal encyclopedia and coffee table book. It's got hundreds of images of cereal boxes and memorabilia going back from the late 1800s to the present. Amazing. I ordered it on Amazon, but it's also in bookstores.

The reviews for the book have been great, which is why I got it. It was in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. It was also in some website called Boing Boing.

It's only $20 (less on Amazon). You all will LOVE this book! You can't beat if for the price, either. This is the first GREAT cereal book!

I know you check the votes in top 10 everyday and it had some of the brands receiving more then the normal votes.I would also point out that Cocoa Krispies got 81 votes, Fruit loops got over 80, Honey Comb got 51, Trix got 90,and Grape Nuts got 120 votes since yesterday morning. I don't think it fair to those who vote once a day for their favorite cereal to have one person to vote so many times.

4 days ago Count Chocula got a 100 votes and they were never taken away. But Fortified Oat Flakes has votes taken away every time it passes anyone. Why does it always get penalized, when other get more votes then usual.

From Mr Breakfast: Thanks for pointing that out. I checked the traffic and the votes for Count Chocula were almost all from Facebook visitors with unique IP addresses. I suspect someone urged all their friends to vote. So that bump was legitimate. Thanks a lot for the post.

I love my Alpha-Bits but the stores down here in Florida are not selling. If they are taking off the market for nutrition reason, why don't they have a reduced sugar Alpha-Bits and also the regular Alpha-Bits. I love the sugar!! Please bring it back.

Official Member: Team BreakfastCount Chocula is ruined. They changed the recipe. Its gross now. Feels like you are eating nothing and tastes nothing like chocolate. They now also poured on vitamins. Buy the old boxes when you still can. No don't, save them for me.

Official Member: Team BreakfastThis is by far favorite website. I live in Mexico, born and raised in central Mexico, and even though I donīt get to enjoy american cereals as often as I would love to, I get to buy them from time to time when Walmart imports cereals made in the US. It's amazing the amount of cereals you lucky guys have in your country! Mr. breakfast! You do know about cereals! I admire you, your site is awesome.

Hi, do you not get Quaker's Harvest Crunch in the US?? I guess so because it is quite common and I don''t see it around...

Also I remember eating some "marvin the martian cereal" once, but I haven't been able to find anything about it, I remember it was purple and had marvin on it, this was around 1995-1998 and I'm almost sure it came form the states. I only had a one serving size box.

Awesome Web site, very carefully done!

Mr. Breakfast, how about making a bar chart for each company showing the votes for each cereal. (cereal names listed vertically, bars signifying votes horizontal.) A similar chart showing the number of comments for each cereal would also be interesting.

Back in the mid 90s, there were a few cereals packaged not in boxes, but were 'famous' bed and breakfast inn's cereals. Anyone remember them?

You should put all the Star Wars and Star Trek cereals on one page. Took a lot of clicks to find them all. But other than that, this website is AWESOME. Great job.

Looking for a cereal and don't remember the name. The characters we're moon men, maybe 10 of them. The cereal tastes like Lucky Charms and definitely had marshmallows. Anybody know?
