Strawberry Shortcake
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1982


"It's berry delicious." This cereal was described on the box as an "artificial strawberry flavor frosted corn cereal." It was based on the the character Strawberry Shortcake who was originally designed in 1977 to appear on greeting cards for the American Greetings Corporation.

The following text is from the back of a box of Strawberry Shortcake cereal:

Meet Strawberry Shortcake and all her friends! They live in a "berry" special place called Strawberryland. All the kids enjoy a simple country life. They make delicious things to eat from all the good things that grow around them. Now, Strawberry Shortcake has her own strawberry flavored cereal. So won't you join her for a bowl? As she would say... it's "berry" good!

Also see the cereal based on Strawberry Shortcake's fictitious friend: Orange Blossom Cereal

She was featured in a number of TV specials and had her own animated series. In 2006, she starred in the movie, Strawberry Shortcake: The Sweet Dreams Movie. The little fellow to her side is her cat Custard.

    General Mills please bring back this awesome cereal. Through my childhood, all I could remember was the taste of this cereal and that pretty box it was in. I''m 37 years old now and I still eat many cereals by General Mills but it would be such an honor to eat this cereal again!

    I've been searching the internet wondering how to ask for Strawberry Shortcake cereal to be brought back. I absolutely loved that cereal. I'm 38 and my mouth still waters for this cereal. Please bring it back. It was upsetting when it was taken off the shelves.

    Yes please, please bring the Strawberry Shortcake cereal back. I tell my 11 year old daughter how awesome this cereal was and she said she would like to try it. I really do think children would enjoy them very much if it came back.

    What do we as consumers need to do to get them to bring back Strawberry Shortcake Cereal. I'm 41 and this was the best cereal I have ever tasted. I want my milk to turn pink and taste like strawberries. I want my cereal back... please!!! I wish the CEO of General Mills would get his wheels moving and make this happen.
