I used to love them, but my little brother refused to eat them. He was scared they would make him start flying through the air.

I remember Jets cereal, but don't remember any balls. I just remember little jets. Anyway, it was a delicious cereal, my favorite.

Although it was the best cereal ever, I am sure that it was loaded with sugar and everyone decided sugar was a bad thing. So I am sure that is why it disappeared. Loved it though and my mom used to make Peanut Butter Marshmallow Jets for treats!

Loved this and would love to see it return. Is there a anything today that tastes like it? Also, am I correct in remembering this advertised as 'Jets are for boys'?

People who know and remember 'JETS' are becoming fewer and fewer. Made primarily of oats, these unsinkable little balls of crunch left the cereal cupboard way too soon. I, like most who loved this cereal, yearn for its return and would like one more opportunity to have these available to enjoy again before we leave this life. This is so evident in nostalgic comments posted here. We all remember the truly unique characteristics, taste, and eating satisfaction afforded and fondly recall decades old memories about our love affair with 'JETS' in its 'original' formulation.

In the early Sugar Jets from 1955, you could get models of the rocket ships in the commercials! The 3-stage rocket actually had a little ramp door in it you could open up. Aww, neat!

They were my favorite forever. And when I actually saw and bought some in about 1972, I was so happy they were bringing it back! But they did not. They should now.

I remember when they were called Sugar Jets. The TV commercial showed a cartoon boy in a space helmet eating Sugar Jets and then flying through the air. I ate some, got up on an upholstered chair and jumped off (with socks on my hands for "wings"). Nothing happened. That was almost as much of a disappointment as finding out that there was no Santa.

The ad I remember the most was the one that sounded like a military march: 'Jets, Jets, Jets taste best... Sugar toasted oats and wheat, their winning flavor can't be beat.'

A cereal that held it's own. A unique taste and flavor, unlike any other. Loved it, miss it, but if they were to "re-make" it, we all know that it would not taste the same. We All Miss You, Friend Jets!

I really liked watching the Jets commercial when the boy and girl were flying (like superman) after consuming a bowl of Jets. I tried it because it looked so cool, but with no results. I'm glad I didn't jump off a roof.

Wifey just asked me - "You know what my favorite cereal was?" Then she told me it was Jets. She expected me to say that it was not really a cereal. To her surprise, I said it was my favorite too. Who knew? Now when we are 65 years old, we are wishing for cereal we had when we were young. We would certainly buy it if available.

Both my wife and I remember Jets and often comment on how it would be nice to be able to buy them again. We both agree with the many positive comments and it's too bad that General Mills allowed themselves to be "bullied" into taking Jets off the market. Kellogg's stayed with sweetened cereal (Frosted Flakes) and I still enjoy them today... C'mon General Mills... bring Jets back... the original ones and not the space shapes.

My favorite cereal of all-time. I guess the advent of the health-consciousness "movement" - still going strong as ever today - doomed it. Wish I could still eat some today. Is it still being sold somewhere? If so, is it the original and not some fake version?

I don't know exactly when, but it seems as though General Mills quit making Jets sometime in the late 1960's. What a disappointment to me. It was my favorite cereal in my youth, although I preferred the round shape of its early years to the space shapes of its later years.

Ahhh JETS! when it was decision time in the cereal isle in the grocery store it was JETS first!. Ohhh the little round sweet malty sugar veneered oat and wheat balls where a kids bliss. I can 50 years later remember how wonderful they tasted. Had to have 2 boxes just to last the week. Mom had to hide one box just so there was enough. Saturday morning cartoons and a bonus bowl of Jets! That was living. Wow what flavor. Wish they would reissue JETS. (the ball shape not the other ones.)

The Round Jets, not the sugared Jets were the greatest cereal. and before GM changed them to look like Jets. They were just sooooo goooood! Why can't you bring back the good cereals? Quit changing all our foods. We like them just the way they are. Bring them back! My mom found the last box of Jets when I was over in Vietnam - and sent them to me. I was a Bogart! (which means that, that was one time I did not share!)

My favorite Jets box was the 2 kids and the little car. That was real cute. The strangest thing about the mid 1960's commercials are they told the viewers, "JUST FOR BOYS"(?). The announcer sounded "hoarse".

Jets were the best cereal to eat right out of the box. Also, why did they change the names of so many cereals? Sugar Smacks, Sugar Crisp, Sugar Pops, etc... Also, while we're on the subject of great snacks, what ever happened to Nabisco Brown Edge Cookies? They were GREAT!

I also think they should bring back sugar jets. It was always my favorite cereal. I always ate it as a snack whenever I was hungry.As I got older and started to drive I always had a box of it in my car.I never liked eating my cereal with milk, just straight out of the box, like eating popcorn.

My all-time favorite cereal was Sugar Jets. I could eat a whole box at one sitting - and did on many occasions. I liked the way they stayed crunchy pretty much to the bottom of the bowl. The changed the shape from round (like KIX) to space ships and planets during the 1960's, before finally eliminating the cereal from the line-up. Does anyone know when they actually stopped making Jets?
