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.

In a 1984 episode (#1529) of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, Mr. Rogers takes a trip down the cereal aisle where you can see Kaboom cereal along with other discontinued favorites like Pac-Man Cereal, Donkey Kong Cereal and Buc-Wheats.

    I was born in 1980 and Kaboom was my absolute favorite. I would love for this to return so my kids can enjoy it as well.

    I so loved this cereal and wish I could still buy it. I have never found a cereal that I liked as much as this one. Hoping that it will one day return.

    I love it, but I'm having a very hard time finding it. Can people let me know what stores (or online) that you're finding it?

    Yes! Bring it back. I remember it as a child and was going to order it off Amazon but a few people said they changed the cereal from oat to corn and it tastes bad. But I used to love this cereal. It would be awesome if my son could taste my favorite cereal but make it the right way please.

    I loved the squid ink combination of food coloring that leeched into the milk making it a disgusting hue of purple brown. xoxo
