This cereal can also be found under the name Frosted Sugar Stars, although, often, the word "frosted" was so small that many called it, simple, Sugar Stars.
Under the name Frosted Sugar Stars, the box described the cereal as "sugar toasted oats".
In the early 60s, the name of the cereal was shorted to, simply, Stars. At this point, the box announced, "New caramel flavor." The cereal's mascot and cover model was then a bearded, pointy-hat-wearing character named Hillbilly Goat.
A later iteration of the box, which announced caramel flavor with the word "new" dropped, featured a half-sun character wearing a sleeping cap.
Company Description: Kellogg's was originally founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906.

I used to get a box of Caramel Stars for Elementary school breakfast. It was the greatest tasting cereal that I have ever eaten to this very day, and that was way back in the 60s! Marty

This was the last of the series of Kellogg's star-shaped cereals. As I said a while ago while commenting with ALL STARS... when the cereal was dropped, I was terribly sad.
