Sugar Jets


Sugar Jets From: General Mills
Introduced in 1953



Sugar Jets was originally called Sugar Smiles Cereal.

Sugar Smiles was a combination of sugar-coated Kix cereal and plain Wheaties flakes. Within a year, the Wheaties flakes were removed from the cereal and the name was changed to Sugar Jets.

In 1964, the cereal was described on the box as "Space-Age Shapes In A Sugar-Toasted Oat Cereal."

Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

So is this different from Jets cereal? The shape tipped me off. I love the taste. Bring 'em back!

This is great because Sugar Jets is always the cereal I remember as being absolutely delicious too and is my all-time favorite. Although they were shaped like Kix, they were nothing like them. They were made from oats, not corn. It wasn't until later they made them "space-age shapes". I can still remember, after over 50 years, exactly what they tasted like.

As late as the mid-70's, I found some Jets at a little grocery store in my hometown in Texas, and bought up every box they had. I don't know how old their inventory was, nor did I care! I was just glad to find some, and I enjoyed every bite. If Jets were still available, I'd eat a bowl every morning (or night)! -JW

The closest I've found to Jets is Frosted Cheerios, but it's still not the same. Bring back Jets!

Loved this cereal as a kid in 50's and 60's. Would love for it to come back. Replacing Kix.

Jets were a real treat when I was a child in Connecticut. When my family moved to Fort Lauderdale in 1957, Jets could not be found. I am surprised to read that Jets were made from Kix, because Kix was the worst thing I ever tasted.

I would love to see Jets back on the grocery shelf again. I loved this cereal when first introduced back in the 50's. Where did they go? With all the comments and feedback, why don't they bring them back and let us remember about the good old days. It will ALWAYS be my all time favorite cereal of all time and I am 62 yrs. old. Old habits never die. Please, please bring them back. I know they will be a big seller.

My favorite childhood cereal... can still remember the taste sensation... but everything tasted better when I was five... wonder how it would stack up today against Cap'n Crunch?
