I have gone so far as to reach out to the company to ask them to make it again. They answered that they have no plans at this time. Maybe if more people asked them.

Wish they would bring it back. I don't remember that wrapping of it. Was there another wrapping of just the clowns face? I loved it so much. I'm 53 and I still remember it.

This cereal was absolutely the best ever. My brother and I liked the chocolate the best, however, we would often mix the chocolate and vanilla varieties together. We often ate this cereal as a snack. I find it hard to believe with all of the cereals out there today, (i.e. cookies, and other obviously sweet cereals, and even the chocolate trends in many other cereals) that this one was so bad in sugar content or otherwise. I have tried Kellogg's "Krave" cereals, also chocolate-filled. They're okay, but nothing in comparison to Surprise. I'm sure that with today's advances in production, their problems making the product could be resolved. Heck, market it as a snack instead of a breakfast cereal. If it ever came back, I would buy it forever 100%. By far, the most awesome cereal ever.

This is my all time favorite cereal... I still have two of the Premiums (Prizes) from when I was 7 y/o. They are little plastic green capsule (Clamshell) with his face on both sides and an intact 3D Puzzle. I want to wish they would bring it back... but it was like eating a milky, crunchy, pudding filled sugar bomblet. lol

One of my favorites from back in the day. I think it was almost all sugar with just the right amount of chocolate. One mouthful would almost melt your teeth. I remember this being on the market for only a short time in the mid 70's. My mom told me it was discontinued due to the high sugar content and little nutritional value. I thought she was lying and went to the store with her a few times just to see if it was really on the shelves, but it was gone!

This cereal was awesome, we'd eat bowls of it and it had so much sugar in it it made the great Cornholio seem like a poster child for Narcolepsy.

Please find the recipe and bring this cereal back. I would love to have a sweet snack at night that isn't as heavy as a dessert. If you get 100 votes, will you? Please...

Mr. Wonderfull's Surprise was my favorite cereal ever. I was so sad when they took it off the market.

That cereal box is great. However, this American girl has never in her life eaten or even seen Mr. Wonderfull's Surprize. It sounds kind of bad. I just Google'd it. It's terrifying, but where is this boat you speak of? I didn't see it on any of the images I found.

Oh my GOSH - we loved this cereal as kids! Nobody we've talked to even remembers it. Wish it would make a comeback, even for a little while!

I loved this cereal and was really dissappointed when it was discontinued.

I do recall that Mr. Wonderfull's Surprize was a short-lived test market item that General Mills discontinued shortly after it was introduced, mainly because parents and nutritionists were complaining that the cereal had no nutritional value, as well as production problems with the cereal. I wanted to try this cereal when I was younger, having read about it in the newspaper, problems and all, but Mr. Wonderfull's Surprize never made national distribution. At the time, my mother mainly brought home variety-pack cereals in the single serving boxes, because she said that I eat too much cereal. That didn't stop me, though... I just ate two variety-pack cereals per sitting.

This was my favorite cereal ever. My sister and I would eat a whole box watching Saturday morning cartoons!

I agree with the comments below. While I was very young, I still remember the taste and still have cravings for it.

My uncle worked for General Mills and we got some of the first off the line. My parents let us have it once or twine until they discovered it had no nutritional value. Maybe so but it was amazing! You bit into slightly crisp milk soaked pillows filled with a slightly firm chocolate frosting!!! MMMMMM!
