Puffa Puffa Rice
From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1967


This cereal was described on the box as "puffed and toasted rice with brown cane sugar" with "oceans of energy".

In its first years, the cereal was presented with a definite Hawaiian or Polynesian theme. Island volcanoes, ocean scenes and palm fronds adorned various versions of the cereal box. When the cereal was first announced in ads, the announcer exclaimed "Nui! Nui! from Kellogg's" instead of "New! New!"

Around 1972, Kellogg's tried to promote the cereal with a smiling train having the title "Puffa Puffa Rice" puffing out of the trains steam engine.

The cereal disappeared around 1975.

Bring back Puffa Puffa Rice. The commercial jingle for it was the best! : )

According to the history, I was only 2 years old when this disappeared. Yet I have a very vivid memory of it, even the weird hamster food smell of it.

Puffs Puffa Rice was the best and most tasty cereal. I do not know why it was taken off the market. It would be great to see it back in the shops again. I would certainly buy it.
