Smurf Berry Crunch
From: Post
Introduced in 1983


This cereal was described on the box as a "fruity sweetened corn, oat & wheat cereal fortified with 10 essential vitamins and minerals."

The box featured Papa Smurf hoisting a spoonful of the red and purple cereal while Smurfette and two other Smurfs pick Smurf Berries from a Smurf Berry bush in the background.

The Smurfs were painfully cute, blue creatures who had their own animated TV series from 1981 to 1989. They first appeared in a Belgian comic strip by an artist named Peyo in 1958.

In 1987, Post produced a second Smurfs cereal called Smurf Magic Berries. Unlike Smurf Berry Crunch, the Magic Berries cereal contained marshmallows.


Smurf Berry Crunch Jingle
From TV ad; sung to the tune of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite

"Smurf Berry Crunch is fun to eat
A Smurfy fruity breakfast treat
Made by Smurfs so happily
It tastes like crunchy Smurf Berries
It's berry shaped and crispy too
In berry red and Smurfy blue."


Smurf Berry Crunch Trivia:

Actor Jack Black (Tropic Thunder, School Of Rock) once appeared in a Smurf Berry Crunch television commercial. According to Black, ""My stock plummeted at school... Being in a Smurfberry Crunch cereal ad and being pulled along in a red wagon...?"

    As a kid, I became addicted to this cereal. There was something about the taste of it that was unique. I never found that flavor anywhere since. I just wish they would bring the recipe back.

    So many great morning memories with this cereal. Please bring it back or at least give us a recipe. Even my grandkids are into the Smurfs.

    This cereal was the best. Way better than both Fruity Pebbles and Cap'n Crunch. It's probably my all time favorite cereal! I can taste it now. Mmmmmm Yum!

    We need to petition the company to bring it back for real. Best cereal ever created hands down.

    Yeah! Hands down the best cereal of the 80's. And it would probably be the best right now as well if it was still around or brought back.

    Best cereal ever. I most liked the texture which seemed softer than other cereals. I thought Hannah Montana cereal from a few years ago was very similar to it.
