Smurf Berry Crunch


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...?"


Known premiums:

Smurf Stickers; True Blue Smurf Award Badges; Smurf Campaign Buttons; Smurf Bicycle Plates

    This was great. Enough said. It tasted like Crunch Berries with an extra boost of fruit.

    One of my favorite childhood memories: while everyone else was still asleep, I'd pour myself a bowl (or several) of Smurf Berry Crunch cereal and sit myself in front of the TV watching Saturday morning cartoons!

    This cereal was so nasty! My mom said she wasn't buying anymore fun cereal until I finished this one. The stale version was not any better. LOL!

    I only got to eat this cereal at Grandma's house, as my parents would not allow any sugary cereals (we got a choice of store-brand Corn Flakes, Bran Flakes, Cheerios, or Crispy Rice). It was amazing. 'Smurfberry Crunch is fun to eat ..... a Fruity, Smurfy breakfast treat!'

    The closest I have found to this flavor is Berry Berry Kix. It's pretty spot on but not as sweet.
