Introduced in 1980
This cereal is often promoted as a value alternative to Post's Golden Crisp cereal. According to Malt-O-Meal's website in 2011, "Golden Puffs cereal is crowd pleaser made from puffed wheat sweetened with the natural sweet taste of honey!"
Company Description: The Malt-O-Meal Company dates back to 1919 when John S. Campbell developed a hot wheat breakfast cereal he called Malt-O-Meal. The company officially adopted the name The Malt-O-Meal Company in 1953. By 1965, the company had entered the ready-to-eat non-hot breakfast sector with the introduction of Puffed Rice and Puffed Wheat cereals.... Read on and see all cereals from Malt-O-Meal

38 ounce bagged cereal for $2.99? Same great taste as Sugar Smacks in the 80's? Did I just finish a second bowl? Yes, yes and yes.

I was trying to see if there was any recipes out there to make with my Malt O Meal Golden Puffs cereal. Does anyone know of any?

I'm diggin' getting the same taste as Sugar Smacks and Super Sugar Crisp at such a great price!

It's actually better than Golden Crisp because it tastes more like the old Super Sugar Crisp from the 70's. I love it!

Best cereal in the world. Not only does it taste like Honey Smacks, I think it tastes like the old days of Sugar Smacks. In this case, it's better than the original.

I love this cereal. It's every bit as good as Super Sugar Crisp or Golden Crisp or whatever they're calling it these days and it was less than two dollars last time I got it.

Golden puffs are one of the worst cereals you can eat. They have excess amounts of sugar, carbs,and sodium. In Dec. 2009, a breaking discovery in science found that eating 3/4 a bowl of this cereal was the same as consuming 2 big macs, 3 small fries, and a 8 oz. glass of coca-cola. This is not healthy for you.
