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 still think about this cereal every once in a while and I am nearly 72! Sugar Jets is still my favorite after all these years. It would be a real treat to have Sugar Jets available once again.

I am 66. Sugar Jets and Rice Krinkles were great tasting and popular. Why they ever stopped making them still blows my mind. Bring them back even if Rice Krinkles stuck together in summer weather. Both cereals are better than what they have out now. I'm still trim and I ate tons of cereal.

I too find Honey Nut Cheerios to be very close to the taste Jets.
