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...

There is nothing quite like Krumbles. My whole family agrees! Whatever in the world happened? We need Krumbles back on our tables... we all ate Krumbles... bring it back,please! I keep my eyes open in hopes I might see a box on the bottom back shelf somewhere... help us get back to the good years! We want Krumbles. Mom does. She really does. Help us!

I can remember this cereal well from my early childhood. My brother was the one that always ate it until I finally tried it. Then I was a big fan as well. I always put a ton on my spoon and had fun trying to get it into my mouth without losing some of it as the stix went in all directions. One of 2 cereals I miss terribly! Presently don't eat any cereal because they don't measure up! - Katy

Krumbles was my whole family's favorite cereal. Since it was discontinued I have almost stopped eating any breakfast cereal. I would revert to eating cereal in a second if it were on grocers shelves again.

It was a great cereal. A lot of us 'boomers are still around and would like to see it back. With declining cereal sales of all types, what do they have to loose to bring it back even for a short run!

It was great. We had it on our breakfast table through the 50s and 60s. Don't know why it wouldn't sell today.

I remember Krumbles as a kid in the 60's. Sugared cereals were gaining in popularity... but I liked Krumbles. I still would if I could still get it.
