Addams Family
From: Ralston
Introduced in 1991


Addams Family Cereal was produced as a promotional tie-in for the 1991 film The Addams Family starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia and Christina Ricci. The box described the cereal as "the creepy, crunchy cereal with the great taste you'll scream for." The cereal pieces which resembled skulls, headless dolls and dismembered hands have been described as tasting like a mixture of Honeycomb, Kix and Cheereos.... but with less flavor.

The first 3 ingredients listed on the nutrition panel were wheat, corn and rice flour, sugar and partially hydrogenated vegetable oil.


The Addams Family Cereal Box (Front)


The best known premium to come with this cereal was small flashlights made to resemble the film's characters Lurch, Uncle Fester and Cousin It. They were shrink-wrapped to the front of select boxes.

The following description of the cereal and characters in The Addams Family appeared on the side of the introductory box:

Welcome to a delightfully demented breakfast with THE ADDAMS FAMILY.

Getting too old for the same loops and letters in your cereal. Then you're ready for a new taste adventure with THE ADDAMS FAMILY brand sweetened cereal. Deliciously demented, this new cereal has a mysterious flavor you're going to love. And the skulls, headless dolls and Thing cereal pieces are as bizarre as THE ADDAMS FAMILY themselves.

Speaking of bizarre, let us introduce you to America's creepiest, kookiest family:

GOMEZ ADDAMS: The manic father of the clan. He loves playing golf in the family cemetery, crashing his toy trains and romancing his bewitching wife, Morticia.

MORTICIA ADDAMS: The real backbone of the family, Morticia is a raven haired, haunting beauty who cares for her family, her home and her dead plants.

FESTER ADDAMS: Uncle Fester, lost in the Bermuda triangle years ago, is Gomez's demented older brother. He is also so charged with energy he can light a bulb in his mouth.

PUGSLEY ADDAMS: An energetic monster of a boy. He breeds pet sharks and creates dreadful concoctions with his chemistry set.

WEDNESDAY ADDAMS: The somber and poetic daughter who knows the family's hiding places and secrets. She enjoys beheading dolls with her toy guillotine.

LURCH: Addam's gigantic mute Butler who protects the children from healthy influences everywhere.

THING: The disembodied pet hand who's full of personality. Thing is always willing to serve as a tee for Gomez's golf ball and to warn the family of impending danger.

These are just a few of the lovable, quirky characters you'll meet in the new THE ADDAMS FAMILY movie. And now, you can have breakfast with them every morning with the new THE ADDAMS FAMILY Cereal.

    Pretty much what everyone else is saying... this was the best cereal EVER! Ralston made all of the best cereals. I recall this one tasting just like Dunkin' Donuts cereal.

    This was the #1 best cereal ever made! I can still remember exactly how it tasted and I miss is SO much! It would be so awesome if it brought back, as whatever 'brand' they want, as long as it tastes and feels the same.

    Please bring this flavor of cereal back. I was an addict when I was a kid, and couldn't get enough of it. I used to eat an entire box on a Saturday morning.

    Very cool. Going to eBay now to look for a "Thing Flashlight". Loved the Addams Family (TV Show, not so much the movie).
