From: General Mills
Introduced in 1986
This cereal was described on the box as a "sweetened corn cereal with marshmallows covered with a chocolate-flavored coating and nuts".
A television commercial introduced the cereal along with three new characters: a guitar-playing chocolate corn puff named Choco, a vanilla corn puff (also with a guitar) named Van, and a microphone-wielding and alluringly feminine chocolate-covered marshmallow named Marsha.

Why do they always discontinue the good stuff! They must not like making money. I would eat the whole box myself when I was a kid and would again even though I can no longer drink milk. 5 stars from me and then some! P.S. VP of sales and marketing... don't be scared. There's a good market out there for people with the munchies. Gotta take a risk!

I have very fond memories eating this cereal as a kid. Wish they still made Rocky Road so I could try it again.

This was a cereal that will always be remembered forever. I loved it back in the 80's and wish my kids can experience it also. Miss it.

I remember this cereal from being a kid, I'm now in my mid 30's and still remember it because it was that incredible! Please bring it back!

My oldest son lived on Rocky Road, and my daughters never had the opportunity to taste it... Really should bring it back, even for a little while, just so other kids can try it... it amazes me that all the popular kids cereals just disappear from the market... bring Rocky Road back!

With the huge popularity of Reese's Puffs cereal these days, I can't believe Rocky Road isn't around to be a fierce competitor. +1 vote to bring it back!

Please bring back Rocky Road cereal. It's the best. My daughter would eat almost a whole box when she was small. I tasted it and fell in love with it, too. Get it back...

I was just telling my kids about this cereal the other day. If there is one thing I could have from the good old days it would be this. By all means bring this cereal back. Rocky Road is the BEST!

Man! I used to fall in love with that cereal as a kid. One of my favorite cereals of all time.
