Great to see Quisp on the back of the Red, White and Blue Crunch Berries Captain Crunch box. Glad to see Quaker cross promoting Quisp. I would recommend the Red White and Blue Crunch Berries. Very tasty.

I remember having Quangaroos back in the day, but I don't ever recall eating Quisp. Our ShopRite sells it and I decided to check it out. Tastes like a buttery version of Cap'n Crunch. This seems to be a favored cereal for a good reason.

I have been buying all my daughters friends a box of Quisp to try. They all love it. It appears to be really selling well at my local Food City. If cereal companies would just reintroduce some of the classic cereals (Concentrate, Team Flakes, Post Toasties ect...) they would see a whole new generation would enjoy them.

Best cereal ever IMHO. Couldn't believe it when my daughter found Quisp at a Shoprite in the town next to us. I went over today and bought four boxes! Hope it stays on the shelf. As to comparisons to Cap'n Crunch, the two are similar, but Quisp does not seem so excessively sweet.

Quisp was/is the most awesome cereal EVER! It's almost impossible to find in East Tennessee though; so far I can only find it online at Walmart.com, and last I looked they only sold it by the case. Does anybody know if Publix or Aldi carry it? I haven't checked those yet...

I always remember eating Quisp as a kid in the 70s. Saturday morning cartoons and Quisp went hand in hand. I was so surprised to see it at National Liquidater in Weymouth, Mass this past weekend. I bought all three boxes at $4.00 a box. Please bring it back to all stores. We love it still!

Quaker Oats has made this cereal available again as of 2014. You can buy directly from their store (8.5 ounce box) or from Amazon.com. In Bloomington, Indiana, you can purchase a 8.5 ounce box of this cereal as well at Marsh Supermarkets. Or, if you have a lot of money to burn, you can order at 12 pack case from Walmart for about $60.00 US. Enjoy!

Quisp is becoming more common in supermarkets in the northeast. Ironically, you usually don't find it in the cereal aisle. It most frequently appears in a temporary small cardboard display that is placed in an aisle or end of aisle. I've seem it in the bread section in A&P stores and oddly enough the frozen food aisle of Shop Rite. This is rather strange... I don't understand, if they are going through the trouble of shipping it to stores why not just put in back on the cereal shelf where it belongs!

I was 4 years old in 1965 and was so totally hooked on my Quisp! I was so into Quisp that I had the cloth doll, and can't remember what happened to it. Sure wonder now, how much it would be worth today. I, for one, would love to find some... I would still buy it.

I got you all beat. I found Quisp in Kahului Maui, Hawaii just last month with a red tag on it for 89 cents. I only bought 4 boxes, but should have bought all 20 of them. I sent a box to my sister in Switzerland. We grew up on that tasty morning treat. It was as good as ever... not suffering the same fate as the altered-ingredient facelift that Cap'n Crunch endured. The boxes of Quisp were on a mark down because no one here knew what it was. Anyone willing to send a few boxes to me in Hawaii? If so, contact me at marcantosch@hotmail.com. Aloha!

Mr. Breakfast I have seen massive amounts of votes given in one day to Frosted Flakes, Captain Crunch and Honey Nut Cheerios. They are never penalized. I only vote once a day for Quisp and yet you only seem to target Quisp for penalties when it is obvious the others are having multiple votes also.

Note From Mr Breakfast:: Thanks for the comment Postman. I'll keep an eye on those. Whenever there's dramatic moves in the list, I check the unique visitors to a page against the number of votes. Sometimes, a cereal gets attention on Twitter, Facebook, etc and the increase is fair. Sometimes not. Those cereals will get votes removed if something funky is going on. BTW... love your comments throughout the site. Thanks!

Very fondly remember both this cereal and its counter-part, QUAKE. I remember as a kid sending away for the Quisp bank. It got damaged in shipping, so I sent it back. The second one came, but it, too, had been damaged during shipping. I remember my mother being really mad for some reason. I couldn't have been more than 10 years old back then...
