Rice Krinkles

Rice Krinkles From: Post

Rice Krinkles has been penalized 25 votes because of repeat illegal multiple votes detected from the same single user (3/5/15). Only one vote per user a day allowed for any given cereal, please.

Rice Krinkles (full name: Sugar Coated Rice Krinkles) disappeared in 1969, making room for Post's new puffed rice cereal, a fruit-flavored cereal meant to resemble little rocks. Today, you know this descendant of Rice Krinkles as Fruity Pebbles.

The cereal was also sold under the name Sugar Sparkled Rice Krinkles. During that time, the box listed the ingredients as rice, sugar, salt, corn syrup and honey, along with an infusion of iron, niacin and vitamin B1.

Company Description: Founded by C.W. Post, the company began in 1895 in Battle Creek, Michigan under the name Postum Cereals. Their first product was a coffee substitute called Postum. The first breakfast cereal to come from the company was Grape-Nuts in 1897... Read on and see all cereals from Post


While this rice-loving Asian may be politically-incorrect today, So-Hi the Chinese boy was all the rage in the less-judgmental early 1960's when he became the mascot for Rice Krinkles cereal.

Memorable characteristics of this mascot were his high-pitched Chinese accent and a hat which was actually a cute, little bowl of Rice Krinkles.

I still look for So-Hi on the cereal shelf. Guess I'm just showing my age.

Looking somewhat like Rice Krispies, Rice Krinkles looked "krinkled"... and they had a unique tastiness that you couldn't get enough of. I Remember also, that at one time the box showed not just So-Hi... but three different characters resembling him, and all sporting the traditional Asian/Chinese hat... but with no cereal bowl atop. The three characters were like Chinese "Snap, Crackle and Pop" from the Rice Krispies box. Going on 61 in February... still eat Grape Nuts and would buy Rice Krinkles again if Post would bring them back exactly with same taste-formula as before.

Post - bring it back! I was raised on this stuff in the 60's. There's never been another cereal even close to this.

Rice Krinkles is voted 10th best cereal of all time! And still not back on the store shelves! What's up with that POST? Listen to your consumers!

There was always one of these four cereals in our house: Rice Krinkles, Sugar Frosted Flakes, Cap'n Crunch or Super Sugar Crisp. You just didn't need anything else.

I am 63 years old, and my favorite cereal was and will always be Rice Krinkles. It really broke my heart when it was retired from the shelves of every supermarket and grocery store. If Post reads my comment, please bring it back. It is truly missed. My grandchildren deserves to enjoy this cereals as I did and not dream about it when I tell them how great it was.
