Fruity Pebbles


Fruity Pebbles From: Post
Introduced in 1969


This cereal was introduced as simply "Pebbles" in 1969. The recipe was a modified version of Post's Rice Krinkles cereal which disappeared about the same time Pebbles was created.

While Rice Krinkes had a definite puffed rice appearance, this new cereal had smaller pieces that actually looked like little rocks.

A happy coincidence happened when the creators of the animated television series The Flintstones sent out word that they were seeking licensing partners. During the first year of the show (1960), The Flintstones was aimed at adult audiences and Winston cigarettes was its biggest sponsor. In an effort to increase its appeal to children and advertisers pandering to children, The Flintstones added two children to it's animated cast, Pebble and Bamm-Bamm.

The changes worked and the show was a hit with both kids and adults until 1966 when the show was canceled.

Three years later in 1969, the characters of the show had no show and no where to go. Little did The Flintstone characters know... they were about to become breakfast cereal superstars.

The new cereal that looked like pebbles and the cartoon that had character named Pebbles was a cereal match made in heaven. In 1970, the name of Pebbles cereal was changed to Fruity Pebbles and the first of many Pebbles variations appeared, Cocoa Pebbles.

It's nearly 50 years since the character of Fred Flintstone debuted and he's still playing a starring roll on Fruity Pebbles cereal boxes. While TV commercials starring Fred and his neighbor Barney Rubble had their heyday in the 70's and 80's, you can still occasionally catch Flintstones characters hawking Post cereals.

    Fruity Pebbles was my absolute most favorite cereal when I was a kid and it still is. When I have them now, it gives me fond memories of my childhood, watching cartoons with my sister. Definitely a classic cereal.

    Back in the late 1990's, O went to the Family Dollar in my town and found the CANADIAN version of Fruity Pebbles which was different from the USA version I've known for years. This cereal consisted of big pebble shaped corn puffs (about the same size as Corn Pops).

    I used to hate eating this cereal until I was on a blood type diet and I figured that it was my number 1 favorite now that I can't eat wheat or corn. (O+)

    Cocoa Peebles are one of my favorites (and the cereal I most regular buy) but their Fruity brother is disgusting. I've never found a more unpleasant tasting fruit-flavored cereal.

    I want Fruity Pebbles again, but I can't find it in my regular store. I checked the Post website and there's no evidence that they're discontinuing it. What's going on? I'm really craving it lately.
