Introduced in 2003
This cereal was a crunchy, cinnamon rice cereal targeted to kids ages 8 to 12. It was the first non-flake line extension for Tony the Tiger, who at the time of the cereal's introduction had an 88 percent awareness rating.
The cereal was reviewed by FoodProcessing.com in December of 2003. This is a portion of that review:
The product is rice-based rather than corn-based, as Frosted Flakes are, and the crispy flakes are coated in cinnamon, the fastest-growing cereal flavor in the children's market. Happily, the cinnamon flavor is not lost when milk is added and the cereal stays crunchy in the bowl. I also enjoyed it as a crunchy snack right out of the box.
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...

Please bring back Tony's Cinnamon Krunchers. I've tried everything, but there's nothing like like it. I'd go through 3 boxes in 3 days sometimes. Please bring it back!

PLEASE bring Cinnamon Krunchers back! I am convinced that I was the cereal's biggest fan and it breaks my heart that they have been off the shelves :( I looked forward to my bowl each and every morning and I just hope the company might consider maybe selling a few more boxes :-) Thanks for your time!

I love this cereal so much! I wish they would bring it back. It was far better than Cinnamon Toast Crunch, especially since the cinnamon and sugar didn't just dissolve into the milk but was actually inside the flakes. Plus (from what I can remember) the cereal didn't get soggy for a while. This by far is my favorite cereal ever.

Please - for the love of God - bring these back. They are the only cereal that I have never got tired of eating. I used to eat these straight out of the box just because. C'mon... bring them back.

Please bring this back. It was my all time favorite cereal and I want it back! Cinnamon Krunchers: yeah! Cinnamon Toast Crunch: nay.

Please bring this cereal back. I have been looking for it to come back for a long while now. I really hope there is a major demand to bring this cereal back.

This cereal is better than some cooked meals. If they even brought this cereal back for a limited time, I would spend $100 for a crate to surplus. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is garbage compared to Cinnamon Krunchers. There's just no question that this cereal is the greatest ever.

My brother and I were just reminiscing how great this cereal was - he's fifteen and I'm sixteen. C'mon, guys, bring it back? Please?

If this cereal has a chance to be brought back it's going to take thousands of emails to Kellogg's. So we all need to get busy and do our part!

Kellogg's made a huge mistake in marketing this cereal to 8 to 12 year olds! I tried to tell them this but they would not listen! If they brought it back and marketed it to adults, it would be a colossal success! Who do they think is leaving these comments? Certainly not children!
