Raisin Bran (Skinner's)

Raisin Bran (Skinner's) From: Skinner's
Introduced in 1926

  • Lloyd Skinner is credited as the first man to add fruit to a ready-to-eat cereal. The fruit was raisins. He trademarked his creation as Skinner Raisin Bran. He got the idea from watching his wife add raisins to wheat flakes.

From the U.S. Mills website:

"Try the great taste of America's 1st Raisin Bran - introduced in 1926. Made from toasted whole grain wheat flakes complete with the bran and germ and select California raisins."

Company Description: This brand of U.S. Mills was introduced in 1926 with Skinner's Raisin Bran, the nation's very first raisin bran cereal. We have not found any other cereals under the Skinner's brand and currently believe this is the only Skinner's cereal to be produced. Please let us know if you have information pertaining to additional Skinner's cereals.

This cereal belongs to the following Mr Breakfast Cereal Families:
  • The Bran-tastic Cereal Family

    I'm 68 years old. I love Skinner Raisin Bran! My Dad is 90 and I have sisters ages 57, 61, 64, and 70. We talk about this cereal quite often, and the fact that you never see it anymore... We loved it. One of my sisters actually was able to find it online and bought all of us some. NOT UNCLE SAM brand. Just Skinners Raisin Bran. Where can we get it?

    I used to eat Skinners Raisin bran when I was growing up and loved it. My wife found some cereal that says Uncle Sam with the Skinner brand in the lower left hand corner. Is this the real Skinner raisin bran because it doesn't taste as good as I remember it?

    I can not find this Skinners in Southern California. I grew up on it, found it in South Carolina last month. Would love to find it here. It's the greatest. - Shirley

    Rice Food Market on Westheimer at Weslayan has carried Skinner's Raisin Bran for years at just under $4.00 box... A bargain compared to Amazon price. In the last month Rice has not had Skinner's but they have assured me it is "back-ordered."

    I have not been able to find this, the best Raisin Bran ever eaten. The last place I found it was in Branson, Missouri some 15y ears ago. I hvae looked every where in Houston & no luck finding the Raisin Bran.
