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.

Waffalos cereal was the best. Nothing on the market compares to it. They need to bring it back and watch the sales go up. The cereal these days have very little flavor and get stale so fast. We would go threw two boxes a week. Between my parents and my sister. Please please please bring it back. We miss buffalo Bill. -Butch

I ate so much of this stuff as a kid. No other cereal stayed crunchy like this one.

What made Waffelos so much better than Waffle Crisp? Simple... Waffelos stayed crunchy for a long time. Waffle Crisp gets soggy almost immediately. Loved both varieties! C'mon! Bring 'em back!
