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...?"

    I have tried for years to find a cereal that resembled Smurf Berry Crunch and nothing comes close. It was so good. I wish they would bring it back.

    Easily the best cereal I ever had. I can remember watching the Hanna Barbera: Cartoon Express while eating this every Saturday morning. So freaking great! Bring it back. Please times 100!

    Why did they bring the Smurfs back without the Smurf Berry Crunch cereal. This was a great cereal.
