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...

My favorite cereal for the longest time. I actually thought they did bring it back once (or else I found an old box still on the shelf 20 years). Bring it back again.

Kellogg's Krumbles was by far my favorite cereal growing up in the 50's. There is no comparable cereal on the shelves today!

Krumbles was my favorite cereal in the 50s. Please bring it back! I guarantee it will be a hit! Krumbles had it all: flavor, texture and eye appeal. All my elderly friends also loved that cereal.

The new All-Bran products are not a good replacement for Krumbles. They may be healthy but they have the texture of sawdust.
