General Mills
Honey Nut Clusters

Honey Nut Clusters From: General Mills
Introduced in 1995

This cereal originated as simply Clusters cereal in 1986. We believe the cereal changed names in 1995, but we don't have a firm confirmation of that date.

The cereal's mascot was a squirrel who always tried to get his hands on the "sweet nutty taste".

A cute account of a press tour by the squirrel appeared in the November 13, 1998 Los Angeles Times:

"Celebrity Rodent Bureau: A squirrel that has appeared in TV ads for Honey Nut Clusters cereal began his first media tour this week. According to his publicist, the bushy-tailed creature flew to New York, where he is staying in a hotel suite and being driven around town in a chauffeured van.

"The publicist also issued an official biography for the 3-year-old furball, who stands 10 inches high and is said to have a degree from Nutgers University."

Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

What the heck!!!?? I was hoping to be wrong about this! Between Honey Nut Clusters and Raisin Nut Bran, this was amongst my few favorite cereals! Why is it gone?

This is the best cereal ever. I can not find it anymore in Brooklyn or Manhattan, NY! Whoever is making it please put it on back on the shelves. I just got some kind of vanilla clusters but it is like I am munching on sugar! I want my Clusters back.

I swear that every time I think of those sugary little clusters, I could bust a nut. Give me my Clusters back! I'm sweating right now imagining soaking those beauties in some whole milk. Yeah. I said it... Whole milk. I think it's time for a cold shower.

They need to bring this cereal back! I should contact the make a wish foundation just to get it back! I am sick for 10 years not getting any better and it sounds stupid but I would love to have my favorite cereal back. Honey nut clusters! They have me eating Oatmeal Crisp with almonds and it's disgusting! I really wish I could get my hands on H.N.C. - something I can enjoy and be happy! Hope it comes back soon! Thanks.

Yes, I grew up on this cereal as a kid and miss the taste and quality of Clusters! I use to love the TV commercial when it would come on and the little squirrel saying, Clusters... :-) Like the previous posts said, we need to write General Mills and ask them to bring it back!

I want my honey nut clusters! I don't ever eat cereal... unless it is HNC's. Now it's not available... anyone else get that helpless feeling when venturing down the cereal aisle and knowing in your head it won't be there, but keeping that little bit of hope in your heart. It's the only cereal I'd pay almost $4 or $5 bucks for, worth every penny!! Bring it back!
