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...

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.

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.
