Light and flaky - not hard and crunchy like other flake cereals. Yes, it DID get MUSHY, but that made it even BETTER!

I'm looking for the Pep Blondies recipe. Does anyone know it?

Pep became a soggy mess in the bowl... like eating Cream of Wheat cold. We only bought it once and nobody liked it.

After listening to the old Superman radio show, I really want some Pep. I want to know what it was like. Kellogg's said it was like the flakes from Raisin Bran, but I want a real report. And after listening to the old Dragnet radio show, it's a good thing Fatima cigarettes are discontinued or I might take up smoking.

Pep was my absolute favorite as I grew up in the late 50's and early 60's. I loved Pep... Cheerios too, but I loved Pep more... even better than Wheaties!

I loved Pep. Didn't even have to put sugar on top. Better than Wheaties or any other flake cereals.

I just found a button featuring PEP Cereal inside a 1917 Brunswick wind up Phonograph and was wondering how old it was.

I was in the Army during the 60's and had Pep wheat for breakfast every morning. Now I can not find it in the stores. Why is that? Did they quit making them?

I enjoyed Kellogg's Pep with my breakfast as a child in the 1940's. The newer cereals contain too much sugar.

Pep was always my favorite through High School and then it disappeared.

I was kinda a Cheerios fan, still am at age 70. But in the late 1940's and early 1950's, Mom bought Pep, because they had the gizmo, magic eye... their ad screamed... "MAGIC EYE.... WHEN YOU BUY... PEP", I had to have one to go with my Ovaltine Cup, my 1 square inch of the Klondike (Shredded Wheat I think), my Hop Along Cassidy cap pistols, the whoever's glow in the dark belt, and confederate paper money. Dug around in the Pep box until the flakes were crumbs until I found the Magic Eye... it was kind of a hologram thing, cool if you are about 6 years old.

I think PEP was discontinued sometime around 1978-1980? I was still eating it then... GREAT cereal.

Nobody SEEMS to know when PEP cereal was discontinued. But I can tell you that I was still buying it around 1974 in San Francisco. As I recall, it was a small box, and they were asking a dollar.

I ate this cereal just to collect the different buttons or pins as I called them. I still have a small collection.

PEP was the only cereal I would eat as a kid. Put some sugar on it and sliced banana and it was great!!!

I remember this from the late 50s. Pep also sponsored the original Superman radio show with Bud Collyer as Superman. Lots of fun hearing the old time commercials!
