This product originally came with a shaker cup with a picture of Cap'n Crunch on the side.
The package made the following claim: "When mixed as directed it's as good for you as a bowl of oatmeal."

Anyone remember this commercial/ jingle for this: "Any way you make it, / if you stir it or you shake / it's Ship Shake! / (ruff! ruff! ruff! ruff!)" - The dog did the "ruff ruff ruff" part! That jingle has been stuck in my head for 40 years now (ugh!)

This stuff was foul! You got a little cup with a lid to shake it up.
