Sugar Smacks
From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1953

  • When Sugar Smacks Cereal was introduced in 1953, it contained 56% sugar by weight. Coming in second place is Apple Jacks with 48%. Froot Loops and Sugar Corp Pops round out the top 4 with 48% and 46%, respectively. (These figures represent the cereals at their highest sugar levels).

Sugar Smacks was Kellogg's response to the success of Post's Sugar Crisp Cereal.

This cereal (or a recipe close to it) is currently available as Honey Smacks. In the 90's, it could also be found as, simply, Smacks Cereal.

Company Description: Kellogg's was originally founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906. The company's founder Will Keith Kellogg is credited with inventing corn flakes along with his brother John Harvey Kellogg. The company was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922...

Simply the greatest cereal ever made. I even love them without milk.

I grew up with this great cereal. Had to switch to Post Sugar Crisp when we couldn't find it and they weren't nearly as good.

I think its a bit weird in 2013 that my 8yr old can go to school and say he had Smacks for breakfast!

Aside from the sugar, I thought the taste and texture were pretty horrible when I was a kid. One of the few cereals I regretted begging my parents to buy.

Captain Scarlet was used to advertise Sugar Smacks and you could collect badges from the packs.

I love this cereal for snacking while watching TV. Can't seem to find them anymore. Do they still make them?

I used to have a collection of Dig 'Em frogs. I love Sugar Smacks (aka Honey Smacks) to this day.
