Looks like shredded wheat to me not Chex.

My name is Ralston. I'm a hot Ralston. This cereal is very honored to be named after me.

My husband who is 82 keeps referring to Chex mix as Shredded Ralston and I didn't realize that Ralston had been taken over by General Mill so now I can tell him he is correct. Thank you for the info.

I am now 80 years old and I remember the jingle 'take a tip from Tom go and tell your mom Shredded Ralston can't be beat'. Then I thought 'what is Shredded Ralston'???? - a breakfast cereal but corn, oats, wheat, what???? Ohhh, Wheat Chex. Thanks.

I grew up with Shredded Ralston, Wheaties, Rice Krispies, and other cereals of the '40's. Shredded Ralston was a favorite and I'm sorry to see it gone. Wheat Chex is all right, though.

Shredded Ralston was reformulated and renamed Wheat Chex sometime between the end of the Tom Mix radio show and before Space Patrol premiered.

It was not all that good but I would rather have it than ZO.

I loved the ads: 'It's delicious and nutritious made with real western wheat. Take a tip from Tom go and tell your mom, shredded Ralston can't be beat.'

After Ralston sold the Chex cereals to General Mills, they took over Post's from Kraft.

I was watching "The Brinks Job" and Peter Falk was talking to Peter Boyle who was washing his car one frigid winter day in Boston circa 1949 and there was a billboard for Shredded Ralston in the shot... now I know.

I was in an orphanage during in the 40's and we had Ralston. I seem to remember a hot Ralston too. While we had supper, we would listen to the Tom Mix show and the Green Hornet show. Don't know if they were good times or bad but I left there with lots of memories!

Shredded Ralston was GREAT! Today's Wheat Chex is but a shadow of the former cereal - different flavor, different texture, somewhat similar shape.

I couldn't eat it fast enough to get the box tops for the promotional items offered. Enjoyed getting the items offered on the Tom Mix radio program. Those were very special days.

Oh, yes, I remember Tom Mix. Listened to him all the time. I ate Shredded Ralston too. Wondered if it still existed and found today it is now Wheat Chex. Still love it.
