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

I was able to find Jets in Canada in 1975. Tasted just the same. Bring it back!

As they chant in the Meadowlands, J-E-T-S Jets! Jets! Jets! (from Buffalo, home of da Bills) - little brown spheres of crunchy oat-y sweetness! Tops in taste! Great when fresh-poured....great after sogging out too! Like @Bill52 said, bring 'em back, if only for a while! We boomers would be delighted!

I remembered that I loved the taste, but I'd forgotten about the space-themed shapes. Thanks for the memories guys!

Thinking about Jets takes me back to those uncomplicated childhood days of the 50's. I miss that cereal!

Thanks to whoever said that Honey Nut Cheerios was the closest thing to Sugar Jets. I bought my husband Honey Nut Cheerios and he said they were VERY close to Sugar Jets. Has anyone tried Sugar Coated Kix and are they close to Sugar Jets? Thanks!

At 66 years old, I've told my kids for MANY years that all I want for Christmas, birthday-whatever is a box of Sugar Jets. No modifications to the original ingredients. I'd live on Sugar Jets and die happy.

Probably the reason I now have type 2 diabetes is the hundreds of Jets boxes I ate as a child in the 50's!
