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

My favorite cereal of all time. I have never found a better tasting cereal. Would love to have them bring it back, even for a short time. They would have no trouble selling it for a short time. Baby boomers would purchase it. I would buy 100 boxes to give to family and friends. Loved those Jets! Bill

One of the best cereals of all time, also included in my childhood. The little orange specks in the coating always had me puzzled to what exactly they were, vitamins maybe? Great to eat in the bowl or right out of the box. Would be awesome to bring them back.

The best cereal ever! I also remember the taste. I agree... bring them back. Sugar isn't really that bad for you!

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!
