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...

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

PLEASE BRING IT BACK! It was a most satisfying cereal that kept me going for hours with a flavor I never tired of. With a combination like that, why not bring it back? Those of us who truly loved it are dying of old age and our testimonies will die with us... please don't ignore our pleas... give our grandchildren something good!

It was always my hands down favorite. Special treat Christmas morning was having it with the cream on top of the milk. I keep hoping for a revival.

Krumbles was my favorite cereal in the 50's. I'd think that Kellogg's would be thrilled to produce this cereal again, sharing it with folks who want to eat quality cereal. The taste still remains in my 73 year old memory. Please bring it back.

Krumbles cereal had the absolute best cookie recipe. I have not found anything that comes close.

I was advised by a writer to try Kashi GoLean as a replacement. Kashi GoLean does not taste like Kellogg's Krumbles at all. I'm eating GoLean right now, and it is not like Krumbles classic taste.
