Almond Delight

Almond Delight From: Ralston
Introduced in 1987

Almond Delight was collection of flakes and almond slivers "lightly sweetened with brown sugar". The cereal disappeared in 1996 shortly after most of the Ralston product line was sold to General Mills and Ralston transformed into a manufacturer of private label products.

The advertising firm of Avrett, Free & Ginsberg handled the cereal's launch with an estimated budget of $8 million devoted mainly to television advertising. A memorable promotional campaign for the cereal was the "free cash in every box" campaign. An estimate 4.9 million boxes were printed with the promise that consumers had about a 1-in-20 chance of finding $1, $5, $50 or $500 right in the box. Those that didn't find real money walked away with printed replicas of historical U.S. currency.

The first 6 ingredients in this cereal were whole wheat, brown sugar, milled rice, almonds, sugar and coconut.

This was my favorite for as long as it was available. There are no other cereals that compare. Please bring it back.

The closest thing I've found to Almond Delight is Malt-o-Meal Oat Blenders. Not exactly the same but good.

Every time I buy cereal, I miss this stuff... it was the best. I've tried to buy something "close" and have always been left disappointed. I wish one of the companies would bring this stuff back.

I remember eating this as a kid in the 80s and 90s. Never had better. They likely don't make it anymore because licensing or marketing was ignored for it when the company was bought out many times. It's common these days for food companies to change hands but keep names and some of the trademarks.

The best products always go by the way side. We will never understand or be told why this cereal disappeared.

I've tried about every cereal there ever was. Almond Delight beats them all hands down. Let's make it the Star Trek of cereals and bring it back.

It was the best! The cereal ads were aimed at adults, for an adult sweetened cereal, I was a kid back then. I tried it once when we were out of Wheaties - I WAS HOOKED! It was GREAT! Some company somewhere: PLEASE BRING IT BACK!
