Krumbles From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1912

Memorable tag lines:
  • Crisp shreds of Golden Goodness... a dish that's a winner for wartime!
  • The new whole wheat food with the delicious flavor originated by the Kellogg's Toasted CornFlake Co.
  • All wheat. Ready to Eat.
According to cereal legend, this cereal began as an attempt by Kellogg's to make shredded wheat biscuits. Unfortunately... or fortunately... the biscuits crumbled in the package. Instead of backtracking to make the perfect biscuit, Kellogg's decided to crumble the broken biscuits even more and sell them as Krumbles cereal.

Company Description: Kellogg's was originally founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906. The company's founder Will Keith Kellogg is credited with inventing corn flakes along with his brother John Harvey Kellogg. The company was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922...

Bring Krumbles back! A school chum introduced me to Krumbles and then it was gone - a major disappointment. My husband is among the uninitiated, and I've regaled him with tales of Krumbles for years. What a treat it would be if he could experience the joy for himself.

Incredible... Krumbles was also my all time favorite cereal. I am 67 years old and would love nothing more to see Kellogg's bring them back on the market. I agree if they did one ad in the AARP Magazine and the shelves would be cleaned out. Too bad the youthful marketing management at Kellogg's can't connect with our generation. Lord knows there are plenty of us around.
