Aldi has a peanut butter chocolate Cheerios knock off that tastes exactly the way I remember E.T. Cereal tasting. Even after 30+ years it's uncanny!

Very cool. Never knew it existed. Would have liked to try it. Sounds tasty.

Back when it came out, it was the only chocolate and peanut butter cereal I'd encountered, and I don't remember another one until many years later. I wasn't exactly the biggest fan of movie E.T., despite my mother deciding I needed the bedspread with matching curtains... but the cereal tasted better than I had expected of the ugly little guy on the box.

The best chocolate cereal. The best peanut butter cereal. A recipe from the Cereal Gods!

I wrote a letter to General Mills when I couldn't find it on the store shelves but I haven't heard back from them. I think the E.T. Cereal was great. Maybe if there is a remake of the E.T. movie, they'll bring it back.

I have to agree with most comments. It's really the best tasting cereal I've ever had. It was similar to Reese's but slightly more peanuty and not as sweet. A perfect blend. I wish the companies would be smart enough to bring back the same taste.

I still dream of this cereal. In a very sad attempt to recreate it I used to mix Count Chocula with peanut butter Cap'n Crunch. It's not even close. Reese's is ok, but not nearly as good. How fun would it be of they brought it back a retro cereal each month for a year? I'm sure the sales would be through the roof!

I remember having the Michael Jackson story album as a kid. As for the cereal, I remember it tasting a little funky too me. I could eat it but it wasn't my favorite.

This was the best peanut butter tasting cereal EVER! Please bring this back with the original ingredients. What I would do just for a bowl of this!

I swear I have bought every chocolate and peanut butter mix flavored cereal looking for that taste. Please bring back this cereal even if but for a limited time. I would pay anything. Please keep the recipe the same - no changes, because I have noticed that some of my childhood cereals taste a little different now. I assumed that just like other big businesses, cereal manufacturers starting using cheaper material, or ingredients to make their product.

I have been searching high and low for the equivalent to this cereal. Resse's Puffs comes kinda close, but not exactly... can someone grow a heart and bring back this delightful cereal. I've missed it terribly. Thank you!

The best cereal ever... better tasting than the current Reese's Puffs. General Mills - please bring back this cereal and use the recipe for the exact flavors. Don't change a thing... it was perfection. - Lisa K.

E.T. call home! Seriously, call my house and tell me you're making your cereal again. I loved the peanut butter flavor. Come on, cereal companies... if you made these retro cereals come back for a short time, that would be big news and respectable sales!

I vaguely remember this as a kid, but I do remember it being a little like Reeses cereal but better.

How crazy and unexpected it would be if they brought this back for a limited time. Don't you think people would buy it just because it was weird and retro? And if they keep the recipe the same as it was, it would taste good too. Do it!

Why did they discontinue this cereal in the first place? While I get how folks believe Reese's Puffs are as close as it gets, it is still FAR FROM the superior taste of ET cereal. The key is that ET cereal was made with oats... Reeses Puffs, with corn.

If you liked this cereal... go buy some Reese Peanut Butter Puffs Cereal!! They are about as close as they will ever come to the ET cereal! I buy them all the time now... and I am 37 years old! LOL

This was the best cereal ever made. Period. These kids today don't know anything about how good use to taste. I use to eat this every day all day. I so wish they would bring this back. Oh the memories.

I too remember eating E.T cereal & it was, & still is, the best tasting cereal ever made. I tried the Reese's Puffs thing & it just wasn't the same. They should bring it back I bet that if they did, sales of the cereal alone would boost the economy. I can see the commercials now: "back by popular demand E.T cereal... The ultimate stimulus package".

I have a clear memory of eating E.T. and watching cartoons when I was 10 years old. I'm wondering if the box is worth anything. It seems really rare. (Not that I kept mine... I wish!)

Please put this cereal back on the market. I enjoyed this cereal very much as a child and crave it as an adult. Children today are missing out on one of the best taste the human taste buds could ever experience. If you want to make money brown crunchy gold is the way the truth and the light. pleases!

I am doing some research on the Michael Jackson / ET promo that General Mills had in 1984. Would like to hear from people who recieved the promo and exactly what was included in their package.

I agree with everyone here. This cereal was out of this world and way better than Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs. I remember how much I loved the powdery chocolate substance on the peanut butter pieces. Man was this ever good!

They tasted nothing like Reeses Puffs, they had a much more sweeter flavor, they would turn to glue if you left them in the bowl to long, lol.
