I was born in 1947 and remember that cereal as vividly as anything from my youth... and no one else (my age) remembered anything about it. I even had the pirate (forgot the peg leg, but I new it wasn't captain crunch). I see, I am only the 20th to vote for it. At the age of 4 thru 8 or 9 or 10, I rated it as Awesome, but I suspect, "it sucked" was a pretty good review from the adults taste testing the stuff. I no longer eat any cereal with "added" sugar in or on it. Honey tops most of my choices these days.
