Kellogg's
Puffa Puffa Rice


Puffa Puffa Rice From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1967


This cereal was described on the box as "puffed and toasted rice with brown cane sugar" with "oceans of energy".

In its first years, the cereal was presented with a definite Hawaiian or Polynesian theme. Island volcanoes, ocean scenes and palm fronds adorned various versions of the cereal box. When the cereal was first announced in ads, the announcer exclaimed "Nui! Nui! from Kellogg's" instead of "New! New!"

Around 1972, Kellogg's tried to promote the cereal with a smiling train having the title "Puffa Puffa Rice" puffing out of the trains steam engine.

The cereal disappeared around 1975.

Can we write to Kellogg's? I don't think they realize this was the best cereal ever made. I could eat three bowls right now with freezing cold milk.

I think you can still get this in Germany. However, it is called Smacks.I tastes like I remember back in the day. I assume the name is problematic in the UK though.

I agree it was the greatest of them all. 38 years have passed since it disappeared from my local supermarket and I can still taste it!

Isn't the internet wonderful? I've mourned the passing of Puffa Puffa Rice for most of my life and thought I was the only one who felt betrayed by Kellogg's when they discontinued it. Nice to know I'm not the only one. Here's the good news - I also mourned the discontinuance of McCormick's mayonnaise, and now it's BACK. My family can't get enough. Maybe there's hope for Puffa Puffa Rice. Of course, it's been so elevated in my mind over the years that it may not live up to my memory of it. And there's probably all sorts of terrible ingredients in it that my 50-year-old self would never want to eat.

My favorite as a little boy. If it didn't sell well, I would be surprised because it was sublime. I swear there was an animated commercial with the two kids in the Hawaiian canoe but alas, like everything about Puffa Puffa Rice, it seems to have disappeared. Or maybe I just imagined it.
