Powdered Donutz
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1980


Described on the box as "a crispy, sweetened, 3-grain cereal". The pieces looked like chubby, powdered Cheerios. Text on the back of one of the first boxes read, "Hi! This is Powdered Donutz... a crispy new cereal that looks and tastes like real donuts! They're Do-licious!"

The first 5 ingredients listed on the nutritional panel were degermed yellow corn meal, sugar, oat flour, partially hydrogenated coconut oil and wheat flour.

This cereal really did taste like donuts. This cereal didn't last long at least from the time I discovered it, but it left a lasting impression on me even still. Between the Powered Donutz and Chocolate Donutz, this was definitely the better of the two flavors.

I'd sleep over at my buddy's house just to eat this cereal because his mom bought it and mine wouldn't. Comeback?!!
