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.

    Y'all gotta be the craziest group of people EVER! Yeah I remember this when i was a kid... I remember hiding it. I remember complaining when my mom walked through the door with it. It didn't have any flavor and the marshmallows were nasty too. It was a low budget Lucky Charms. Keep it real. You might as well have eaten the box. And the clown... oh I had a flashback. Leave it were it is please. #LONGLIVETONYTHETIGER

    This is the only thing I wanted to eat while while carrying my son. He came out so healthy: 13 pounds and 22 1/2 inches long.

    GREAT CEREAL! Unfortunately also fortified with LOTS of chemicals, sugar and food coloring. It would turn the milk green, along with other stuff a day later. That's what was great about the 1970's... sure it was bad for you, but it tasted SO GOOD!

    I remember Kaboom being one of my favorite cereals as a kid and just found out my wife has never had it. What a deprived childhood.
