I recall a Kellogg's Krinkles cereal, but it wasn't rice. It was wheat or bran or something and it was shredded. I loved that stuff. Wish it was still around.

This cereal is AMAZING. And the clown is a great mascot. A great way to get people to remember your brand. I absolutely love everything about this cereal. If only they would bring it back.

Best cereal clown ever. Kids won't forget Mr. SugarKrinkles, as he will forever haunt their dreams, both waking and sleeping. May as well have drawn the Pennywise teeth.

Hi - just heard about these off of Gunsmoke, as mrsohio notes. Never heard of them before. Hope I can forget the clown.

Wow. That clown is some scary (swear removed). Scariest cereal mascot I've ever seen.
