I loved this cereal growing up. Too bad there isn't anything on the market with a similar taste.

I'd pay a hundred dollars for a box today!

One of the top 10 cereals on my all-time list and definitely running neck-and-neck with Pac-Man cereal as the best video-game based cereal ever!

I believe there was another DKJ cereal ad that featured Chad Allen when he was a boy.

By 80s Rule
It has been more that twenty-three years at least since I've had this cereal. To date, I still can't find a cereal as good as this one. 80's Rule!
