Sprinkle Spangles
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1993

This cereal was described on the box as "sweetened corn puffs with sprinkles." The cereal pieces were shaped like stars with holes in the center.

A television commercial from 1994 gave a nice description of the star-shaped pieces:

Sprinkle Spangles taste so sweet... taste so crunchy. 'Cause we spangle every angle with sprinkles. Sprinkle Spangles start with a great sugar cookie taste, then spangles every angle with colorful sprinkles.

The cartoon spokesman for Sprinkle Spangles was a purple character named "The Genie". The side of one cereal box gave some valuable insight into the character:

He appears like magic,
In a flurry of sprinkles,
As the kids stare in awe,
Their eyes are a twinkle.

Full of magic and wonder,
He's a genie no less,
Every one of his wishes,
A sprinkly success.

"You wish it, I dish it,"
He says with a boast,
As he grants all the children,
What they want the most.

And what do they want,
Sprinkle Spangles no doubt,
His most sprinkly creation,
That makes kids want to shout!

So wish real hard,
And believe in him too,
And he just may grant,
Sprinkle Spangles to you.

In television commercials, this magical cereal spokesman was voiced by Dom DeLuise, an American actor and comedian best known for acting with Burt Reynolds in the films The Cannonball Run and Smokey and the Bandit II.

The genie's catchphrase was "You wish it, I dish it."

I think we bought these once and my dad had to finish the box because my siblings and I thought it was gross. Lol.

I have been trying to figure out what I've been craving for weeks now, it's Sprinkles Spangles! I'm 25 now and it was discontinued at most when I was six. Please Please Please! Please bring it back! Or any popular 90's cereal that was so cruelly cut from our lives!

I MISS THIS CEREAL!! I used to call it sprinkle cereals! As a 90s kid, this was probably the only cereal I loved eating and still remember the taste. PLEASE BRING THIS CEREAL BACK! The generation now has to try this greatness!

Omg! I FOUND A MATCH! It's so funny that there is even reviews like this on here. I actually looked this up on here to show my ex what this cereal was. I love eating cereal all the time. Mainly at night for my dessert. Anyway she was bragging about a new cereal she had bought. I seen it and told her it looks like the old Sprinkle Spangles. I talked about over the last decade that was and still is my all time favorite. So I tried it and guess what... It's back baby!!! At least real darn close! They are round though with a little less sprinkles but the same taste. It's CAPTAIN CRUNCH's Sprinkled Donut Crunch. It's new so some stores might not have it yet. But Walmart has it she said. I'm so freakin' happy!

FYI... Spongebob Squarepants Fruity Splash is a new cereal made by General Mills and it TASTES JUST LIKE Sprinkle Spangles. It don't even taste fruity at all.
