Introduced in 2003
This was a limited edition cereal that was flavored with "berries" in four flavors and colors of the then-popular Airheads candy. The "berries" were shaped like balloons. A Blue Raspberry Airheads bar was included as a premium.
According to Susan Wolfe, a Quaker PR Manager at the time, "Kids love Airheads candy and they love Cap'n Crunch cereal, and they're going to be excited about the combination. Quaker has produced a television commercial to support the promotion airing on several networks, including Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network."

By far the best of the limited edition Cap'n Crunch varieties. I'm still glad I got to try it, considering it was in stores for, what seemed to me, like one week max.

The box pictured was mine - I sold it on Ebay for $109 dollars - never seen another one like it - was out for a very short time - months.

Loved the candies. Never got to try the cereal. Never knew about it, sadly.
