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.

    OMG! I grew up on Kaboom cereal since the age of 8 and I am 32 now and I travel all of the way to South Carolina to get this cereal from Florida. They said that they have been discontinued and my heart was crushed. I was devastated because any one who I know that was going towards South Carolina I send money to buy extras, but it's been about 6 years now since I saw and ate the BEST CEREAL in the world. Please, please, please bring this cereal back. I think that it can bring the crime rate back down. Every time I go in a store that sells food, I always look for any box that's yellow praying that I would run into that cereal again.

    I wish that at least they would bring it back for a limited time. Don't take away the best cereal ever for good.

    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?
