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...

I can't believe there are so many people here who love Krumbles! It's like a secret society! As everyone else has said, it was my favorite cereal as a kid. Mom wouldn't let us have sugary cereals (though she finally caved one shopping trip and bought a box of Froot Loops when they first came out, and that was it for my entire childhood). I have a vivid memory of sitting on the kitchen counter and sharing a bowl of Krumbles with my mom. I loved how it started out crispy and then got soft and mushy, like a pudding. It would be amazing to taste them again: instant flashback to a happy time and place.

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.
