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 remember Krumbles from when I was a little girl and would fight with my uncle for the last bowl. My favorite still to this day.

I remember Krumbles cereal from when I was a kid in the 50's. This cereal is especially good with brown sugar! I loved this cereal, and whenever I eat cereal nowadays, I think of this one. I tried to find anything about it online a few years ago, but there was nothing. So I'm really surprised to find this forum. Has anyone written to Kellogg's to ask them to start making it again? I think it would go over really well in today's adult market. Maybe kids too.

I wish very much that this cereal would be brought back again. It is more nutritious than many are today.

I, like everybody else in this comment section, miss my Krumbles. I learned about it from my grandmother and it was the breakfast cereal we shared together whenever we visited her. It had become a favorite of our whole family. Imagine our dismay when Kellogg's discontinued this great cereal. We're looking forward to the day when Krumbles will be on our grocers shelves once again. Soon please!

It was the greatest cereal, but now I can't find it. What happened and where can I get some? I live in Washington state and it's not on the shelves :(

I'm 77 and I'm still waiting for my Krumbles to return. I was a little farm boy who couldn't start my day without my Krumbles. I still look for it in the cereal isle. You could give it another name, Just let me know.

Kellogg's surely missed the boat by eliminating Krumbles! It was nutritious, tasted delicious, and was cereal instead of today's sugar-coated candy-like too-sweet 'cereal' filling less of the box than in former days. The bottom line seems sweet-tooth profit instead of a nutritious start for the day. Kellogg's should know better. More Krumbles, please!
