The cereal pieces were shaped like stars with holes in the middle.

My favorite cereal for years when I was a kid. Long gone of course but if you're feeling nostalgic check out Dora cereal (this site). No idea if it tastes the same but it looks identical.

Bring back Pro Stars Cereal. Great cereal with great star shaped pieces and I loved the boxes.

Wayne Gretsky's own cereal, I actually liked this cereal a lot. It was basically a star-shaped cheerio with a bit of aspartame to sweeten it. They weren't overly-sweetened so you couldn't complain that they were artificially-sweetened to a degree one could complain about.
So you had the satisfying, oaty crunch of Cheerios, a bit of extra sweetness, but less concern about the sugar content of the cereal. I also found the shape to be a little fuller in the mouth than the Cheerios "O". I'd be interested to see Cheerios throw a few stars in their cereal for special promotions, actually.
A cereal that I definitely miss.
