General Mills

Kaboom From: General Mills
Introduced in 1969

  • Kaboom! Cereal appears in Quentin Tarantino's 2003 film "Kill Bill: Vol. 1" as a hiding place for Vivica A. Fox's gun. Interestingly, the film also features Lucy Liu and Uma Thurman sharing the lines of the Trix Cereal catchphrase "Silly rabbit... Trix are for kids".

This cereal was described on one of the first boxes like this: "100% minimum daily requirements of vitamins and iron in 1 oz. sugary oat cereal with marshmallows and stars!"

The cereal pieces were colorful pieces meant to resemble the smiling face of a clown. The marshmallows came in the shapes of circus animals.

    I remember Kaboom cereal when it came out in 1969. My family lived in Denver, CO, and remembering the delivery boy that came to the back door of our house. I was five years old then. Kaboom cereal was a special moment because we usually ate Malt-O-Meal farina hot cereal. Great moment of my youth.

    As a 12-year-old, this was good. It's just that it turned my.... ahem... it gave me the most colorful you-know-what in the neighborhood. Which was pretty funny to look at. If you're a 12 year old boy.

    The absolute best cereal ever! My husband and I both miss it so much. If you ask me, it would benefit General Mills to put KABOOM back on the market. I know a lot of people that feel the same way. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Thank you.

    As I was growing up, Kaboom always has been my favorite cereal. Now, I'm 13 years old and I can not find the product in stores as of today.

    Omg, I absolutely loved this cereal and was upset when they no longer made it. I would love for them to bring it back. I used to buy boxes at a time.
