From: General Mills
Introduced in 1977
This cereal was described on the box as "the frosted cereal that makes chocolate flavored milk - just add milk". A strawberry version of the cereal was introduced at the same time.
Ads during the roll-out of Crazy Cow described the cereal this way:
"8 vitamins and iron - is that crazy?
New Crazy Cow means good, basic nutrition. Even without milk, it provides 25% of 8 important nutrients your children need every day. Milk adds protein, Vitamin D and calcium. In all, that's pretty impressive for a cereal that's meant to be only part of a breakfast, along with juice, 2 slices of toast and a glass of milk.
Two flavors kids are crazy about.
If you've got a finicky eater on your hands, you know you can take nothing for granted. So Crazy Cow comes in two delicious flavors, chocolate and strawberry. Your child is bound to love one or the other. Or both.
It does a crazy thing to milk - makes it fun!
All the good nutritious foods in the world can't do your children and good if they don't eat them. That's probably why chocolate milk was invented - it makes good, nutritious milk taste the way kids like it. And that's why crazy cow was invented. Add milk, and delicious, crunchy chocolate puffs make delicious, chocolate flavored milk right in the bowl. Kids love the taste, they love watching the milk turn chocolate, and they love eating it to the very last spoonful."
Known premiums: one of six Star Wars cards; a Wham-o Super-ball; a frozen pop maker, a Trick'n Teaser Book

I wish they would bring it back. It was my all time favorite cereal. I miss it so much... best cereal ever! If we could get a petition started and get a lot of people to sign, maybe they'll consider bringing it back. Lets' try it and see. What does everyone think ?

I LOVE Crazy Cow cereal. I really wish they would bring it back. It was the best cereal ever. Strawberry was my favorite.

I enjoyed this back in the ol' days, but it didn't seem to make the milk anymore chocolate than Cocoa Puffs or Cocoa Pebbles.

Please bring back the strawberry flavor. This was my favorite cereal as a kid. I am still a big cereal consumer and would buy as many boxes of Crazy Cow that I can find if it comes back. Sincerely a true cereal killer. :)

I was so happy to find Crazy Cow on Google. My husband thought I was crazy until I found it online. This was my favorite cereal of all-time, even to this day! I would be so happy if they brought back the chocolate crazy.

Strawberry Crazy Cow was the best cereal ever made. It is such a shame it is still not made today. Crazy Cow and Super Friends... oh how I miss you

Strawberry Crazy Cow was my all-time favorite. Nothing comes close. I would pay just about anything for my children to be able to taste Crazy Cow.

My husband has told me about this cereal for years and wonders why they ever quit making it. He says it was the best.
