Crazy Cow - Strawberry
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1977


This cereal was described on the box as "the frosted cereal that makes artificial flavored strawberry milk - just add milk". A chocolate version of the cereal was introduced at the same time.

The back of the original box gave kids directions on how to eat the cereal:
  1. Pour on plenty of milk.
  2. Stir until milk turns strawberry.
  3. Now enjoy crazy cow in delicious strawberry milk.

Ads during the roll-out of Crazy Cow described the cereal this way:

"8 vitamins and iron - is that crazy?

New Crazy Cow means good, basic nutrition. Even without milk, it provides 25% of 8 important nutrients your children need every day. Milk adds protein, Vitamin D and calcium. In all, that's pretty impressive for a cereal that's meant to be only part of a breakfast, along with juice, 2 slices of toast and a glass of milk.

Two flavors kids are crazy about.

If you've got a finicky eater on your hands, you know you can take nothing for granted. So Crazy Cow comes in two delicious flavors, chocolate and strawberry. Your child is bound to love one or the other. Or both.

It does a crazy thing to milk - makes it fun!

All the good nutritious foods in the world can't do your children and good if they don't eat them. That's probably why chocolate milk was invented - it makes good, nutritious milk taste the way kids like it. And that's why crazy cow was invented. Add milk, and delicious, crunchy chocolate puffs make delicious, chocolate flavored milk right in the bowl. Kids love the taste, they love watching the milk turn chocolate, and they love eating it to the very last spoonful."

The jingle is burned into my memory... 'My best friend is a cow / How now Crazy Cow / Makes chocolate milk Wow / How now Crazy Cow!' I liked the Strawberry flavor the best!

The best - the absolute best strawberry or chocolate milk in the bowl left at the end. Wish we could still get this.

It was THE all-time best cereal, bar none! Every week, I got the strawberry and my sister got chocolate. Oh how I miss it! The only thing that came close was Strawberry Shortcake cereal, but that too is gone and nothing else they make today is even in the yard, man... BRING IT BACK!

My all time favorite cereal. Strawberry Crazy Cow must have had drugs in it... because I couldn't get enough. I actually almost bought an unused cereal box off of eBay because of the impression it had on me as a kid. Either there was something extremely bad about the ingredients or the cereal companies have dropped the ball. This cereal would be a winner today.

This was my all-time favorite cereal... and I was really bummed out when they stopped making it. I wish they would bring it back.
