Introducing Waffelos Commercial
As a boy and a girl examine a new box of Waffelos Cereal, the characters on the front of the box come to life. Meet Waffelo Bill and his guitar strumming horse.
Girl: Hey! What's this?
Boy: It looks like a brand new cereal.
Waffelo Bill: You bet your sweet maple syrup flavor. It's new Waffelos and I'm Waffelo Bill. Yaaa Hoo!
Waffelo Bill jumps completely off of the cereal box and lands on the table... on his butt.
Waffelo Bill: Ooops. Why I'm the best Waffelo hunter west of the... west of the... west... uh...
Horse: That's easy for him to say.
Girl: What are Waffelos anyways?
Waffelo Bill: You're looking at 'em partners. New waffle shaped cereal squares that taste like waffles with the flavor of maple syrup mixed right in.
Boy: They stay crispy in milk.
Waffelo Bill: Yep. And their chock full of all kinds of good thangs.
Girl: What kind of good things?
Waffelo Bill: 'Thangs.'
Girl: Oh thangs.
Horse: He means they're fortified with 8 vitamins plus iron.
Waffelo Bill: Yeah. New Waffelos Cereal... a nice part of a complete breakfast. Yaaa Hooo!
Horse: Waffelos... the flavor of waffles and maple syrup.

My favorite cereal of all time was the blueberry flavor of Waffelos.

I never knew anyone who didn't love these, I can't imagine why they every got rid of them, they HAD to sell well. Waffle Crisp is "OK" but it's not as good as Waffleos were. BRING THEM BACK!!!

The blueberry variety was the very best. Make them again please! Eggo? Give me a break! Waffle-O's rule!

I miss this cereal, When I was little, I wouldn't eat any thing but this.

I agree with all the reviews. Best cereal of all time. Maybe they could bring it back to show people what good cereal tastes like.

I have very fond memories of this cereal, especially the blueberry variety. I also had the light switch cover sticker mentioned by BeBesmommy, here (memories of that sticker are actually what prompted me to Google 'waffle cereal' - I had forgotten the name, ha!). Great stuff!

This was the only cereal I would eat as a child. It was the best. I have never tasted any cereal as good. I remember going to sleep with my glow in the dark Waffelo Bill light switch sticker.

This and Blueberry Waffelos were my favorite cereals when I was a kid. Now there is Eggo cereal but it's not the same. The taste is similar but somehow it's just not as fun.

This was my absolute favorite cereal when I was in high school. I can remember exactly how it smelled and tasted. Loved it! Miss it! Waffelos rule!
