Rice Krinkles
From: Post


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

So-Hi
So-Hi

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.

One minute it was here, but I didn't notice it was gone for a while. I asked around lately and not many remember it. Glad to find interest still exists here. Would buy this regularly again if it was still available. I miss the unique flavor.

I really loved this cereal as a child! I was very disappointed when they disappeared from the market. Many marketing concepts became politically incorrect. Some re-imaged their product, many disappeared. I agree with all the others. Post, please, if you can hear us... bring them back! I too, will share them with my grandchildren.

The one cereal I miss the most. I can still remember its uniquely sweet flavor. Post, please bring it back. There are a lot of cereals made today that are not nearly as good or as popular as this cereal was.

This absolutely was my favorite cereal. It had a unique, wonderful flavor that was not just sugar coated rice. Post really should reintroduce this wonderful cereal with some type of new mascot.

This was my absolute favorite cereal when I was a kid. I just wrote a letter to Post Holdings, Corporate to convey the interest in bringing this cereal back. I also included a link to this page. Maybe they will listen to us and bring back this beloved cereal!
