General Mills
Circus Fun

Circus Fun From: General Mills
Introduced in 1986

This cereal was described on the box as a "crispy, sweetened, fruit-flavored cereal with animal shaped marshmallows". The initial cereal pieces were horses, hoops, balls, bears, elephants and lions. Orange tiger marshmallows were later added.

Another box gave this description: "A fun fruit flavored way to start the day! Breakfast is a circus... An exciting parade of colorful marshmallow circus animals, yellow lions, purple horses, blue bears, green elephants... crunch, speckled balls that almost bounce on milk... and red, crunchy hoops."

Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

We need to bring this back with a petition. General Mills just brought back French Toast Crunch. So it might work.

I loved them... I first saw it in 1986 and I can still sing the commercial at the ready, unaided. Whenever your product has both kids and grown kids singing the theme by memory, you know you have a winner.
