I can still find it in lot stores, not supermarkets. I just bought several boxes as gifts.

Probably discontinued because it must've been a pain to produce this cereal with two small bags of two different flavors going in one divided box. Also sounds kinda hard to pour out of the box too.

I always wonder when Nerds cereal is going to come back. I loved it as a kid and would love to buy it for my kids (if they could keep me out of it) so please bring it back!! Every time anybody says something about cereal, I talk about Nerds and how much I miss them.

Cereal will never be as fun as when Ralston was a major manufacturer. They led the way in whimsy! I loved Nerds and I also loved Freakies.

I've been hoping to find this cereal. I need them in my life. I think that y'all should bring it back and let those who want them special order or something. I guarantee that you would be very happy with your sales. PLEASE bring back for old time's sake. Lol! Fat girl moment.

There was nothing like this cereal before it came out - the texture, the flavor, the whole thing - and there's been nothing like it since. Like most other awesome cereals, it didn't get the long life it deserved.

This was by far my favorite cereal, as was all my cousins. My grandpa would bout 5-10 boxes so all us grand kids could tear it up when we stayed there over summer breaks... I sure wish this be remade, or even be available to buy individually . I'd be all over it. I went to the link someone provided below, unfortunately the link didn't work anymore. I'd pay $10-20 just to have another bowl of this cereal again :)

Yeah, this stuff was great. It *was* a bit like Trix... I think that's the closet thing I could compare it to in straight up taste. But the consistency was better. Trix will cut the roof of your mouth into ribbons if you munch with too much gusto. Nerds had the sweetness of Trix, but with slightly more of an actual fruit taste, plus the texture that was a little softer, like maybe a giant rice crispie... God, that stuff was kiddie-crack.

It's baaack! Check this out. But it's pricey, $19.99 is a bit much. For that price it better taste the same. Very tempted to buy it, my special nerds bowl has been waiting for this cereal too (yeah I still have THE bowl).

My son ate NOTHING other than mama's milk until well after a year old. He was fat, but still within the normal range of development according to the doctor. Doctor said "Give him food" I responded..."He won't eat anything I try" I discovered Nerds cereal and tried it with my son...FINALLY I found something; Anything he would eat...I wish they would bring it back...

Description & Rating: I'm very picky and this was a cereal I loved. It has a touch of fruit or tang to it but that wasn't strong. It had a calm sweetness that stuck out but it wasn't overwhelming. It was so enjoyable, I would prefer to eat Nerds Cereal then I would Nerds. The experience of taste were alike to that of eatting a Nerd, it was sweet with a touch of tang, but not identical and perhaps reversed as Nerds have a strong tang that hits you while it was the sweetness that struck you while eatting this Cereal.

I am giving it 4 out of 5 because I try to imagine it against other cereals and people's expectations. Many mascot cereals have sour marshmellows.. this leaves an impression. The box of mascot cereals are usually of a Cartoon Character or Person and their face consumes most of the box, Nerds cereal did not do this, infact it was some times hard to explain they were turely connected to the candies. With that you also lack those cuddly and collectable feelings you get when you see that family face of Mickey Mouse or Rainbow Brite calling you in. So the sum of this is Nerds Cereal had the problem of focusing more on something edible then on something you just buy because of the trend.

Oh, how much I loved this cereal. I still find myself roaming the Cereal aisle talking about it. It makes for difficult trivia online,.. so even there I still speak of it.

I do have to agree with Drecky. I did know some people that the Cereal did not agree with. Today I would suspect the Food Dye. I have problems explaining to people that Food Dye is not magic colors but comes from plants. I do not know if this was the cause but it's just a suggestion.

If Nerds was to return, I might give it a 5/5. I would have to warn people it is like Cookie Crisp and Reese' Puff Cereal. Though it is modeled after Nerds Candy, it is a unique taste. It is also unlike any other cereal so I can not compare it's taste to any other.
