Quake was it for me. I remember sending 50 cents and two box tops for the Jay Ward premium Quake helmet all those years ago. And like all kids, my mom threw it out when we moved to the burbs. I recall writing to Quaker oats asking to see if they could send me out another helmet to replace the 'lost' one. I got the sound of crickets back.

I think Quisp won out because it was seen as the 'underdog' of the rivalry, and people generally go for underdogs... (This is also why the Quake 'makeovers' didn't work.)

I voted for Quake as I liked the character and cereal best. My best friend voted for Quisp and I was devastated that he won. I do recall seeing Quake re-issued briefly in the 1990s; it was on Phoenix grocery shelves.

I have a dream, a wish, that Quake will come back. I loved it so much. Come on Quaker, bring it back!

I loved both Quake and Quisp. I wish that Quaker would bring them both back. As for the comment that Quake was reintroduced later as King Vitamin... the shape might have been the same, but the flavor was VERY different. I could not stand the taste of King Vitamin.

Originally preferred Quisp to Quake. New & Improved Quake was much tastier than Quisp! Bring back New Quake!

Quake did indeed disappear from the market altogether after the Quake Quangaroos cereal disappeared from store shelves. Later the cereal re-emerged from limbo but this time packaged under another brand label named 'King Vitaman.' Same cereal, same shape and size, different packaging. One of the television ads had this hook phrase: 'If you liked Quake, you'll love King Vitaman!"

Quake WAS crunchier! I liked 'em both. Recently, Quisp reappeared at my local market and I bought about 8 boxes. Bring back Quake!

I always favored Quake the character but liked the Quisp cereal. I voted for Quake and I also liked Quake cereal. Most of the old cartoon cereals are still on the shelf, but I really miss the Sat. am cartoons.

I bought 2 boxes of Quisp at the Riverdale Bronx supermarket last year on a special promotion. Delicious!

I liked the Quake character so much, that I even ate Quangaroos when they replaced it. Bring back Quake!

My brother loved Quake and I, of course, loved Quisp! I miss those old Saturday mornings in our footie pajamas.

I loved Quake! I hated that mean nasty Quisp! I was devastated when Quisp won and Quake was discontinued. Quake was magic to me; sitting there in a trance reading his cereal box and watching the commercials. I think if they would have made them (Quake and Quisp) into a Saturday cartoon on TV it would have been a hit with us then kids and made the cereals more popular and maybe Quake would still be here!!

I liked Quake better when he was an underground "He-Man" and not so much when they turned him in to a pencil armed Australian cowboy. I voted for Quake (the way he was). I liked the plastic Quake helmet better than the Quisp propeller hat. You could use the Quake helmet as a night light.

I liked both of them but Quake stayed crunchier in milk.

I do remember that the Quake character differed in 1969 and the cereal sort of too. This character changed his look from an underground worker to a freckle-faced guy with cowboy hat and gloves.

I was a Quake Fan and even had the rock collection (which also came with a rock hammer if I remember correctly). I was so disappointed when Quake lost the election!

I was born in 1964, my older brother was born in 1962. That meant he always got to be Batman, and I always got stuck being Robin. I remember when the Quisp and Quake helmets came in the mail. Quisp had the cool electric propeller, I got stuck with the Quake helmet (where is it now!!!)

This was my favorite cereal as a kid. Every morning, I'd eat two big bowls of it. Yes, I still remember the Quisp/Quake "election" in 1972 and I voted for Quake every time I finished a box. Really disappointed when they discontinued it!

They need to bring Quake back, its hard to explain the wonderful taste of this cereal.

I remember sending a certain amount of money with either box tops or proof of purchase seals to Quaker Oats for a Quake yellow miner's hard hat that had a working flashlight. And if memory serves me well, I believe that I liked Quake cereal better than Cap'n Crunch.

Quake was better than Quisp! Am I the only one who voted for Quake? Grumble.

Love it! I love Quisp better, but it's nice to see Quake now and again. Bring them both back! Quaker are you listening?

The Quisp character is cuter, but Quake was my all time favorite cereal... it tasted as good as quisp and stayed cronchy longer. The only things close are Captain Crunch or King Vitamin. I'm going to try mixing Captain crunch and Quisp. Freakies were good too...
