Does anyone still have the recipe using this cereal to make muffins? I think it had sour cream as an ingredient. I contacted Kellogg's and they said they deleted the recipe from their files. The muffins made with this cereal are SO good. Please anyone!

I was so disappointed when they stopped making it. We went thru a box at least every week. Please bring it back.

I've been looking for an alternative that is like RR&R. It was my favorite. I think it was ahead of its time. I hope they bring it back some day soon!

RR&R was taken from us too soon, too soon. But at least it died doing something it loved, being eaten by me for breakfast, or sometimes dessert.

This was one of the best cereals ever and should never have been discontinued. Have been searching for one like it ever since, with no success. It had the best texture, yet was chewable unlike so many cereals now that have teeth-ruining balls of "grain" as hard as rocks that risk your teeth and dental work. Kellogg's has many cereals now (including Smart Start) that contain these rock-hard pieces that never get soft in milk, so I have to avoid them and never buy them once I discover these nasty bits within. It seemed Kellogg's was possibly trying to duplicate the wonderful firm and hearty texture of RR&R with Smart Start and a couple of other cereals, so I tried them, but was disappointed, had to give them up soon after due to the teeth-ruining bits. I always think back to Raisins Rice & Rye, which was eminently chewable and had no nasty rock-hard pieces, it had only excellent, firm flakes that became perfectly textured with just the right consistency, in milk. Kellogg's should bring it back! It was the best cereal ever for texture and flavor combined. They should duplicate the recipe, formulation, and baking procedures exactly so as not to risk coming up with those idiotic rock-hard bits which show up in so many of their cereals nowadays, rendering them un-buyable. Bring back RR&R, please!!

RR&R was far better than Total or any other cereal on the market. Try again and give it another chance. I don't care what COLOR the box is! I was a mom when they introduced this cereal. Now I'm a grandmother. Id like to be notified that it will be available again.

I agree with all these comments! This cereal is my all-time favorite as well. Maybe someone could start a petition and Kellogg's would begin producing it again. It was even good dry from the box, without milk. Kaboom is my next all-time favorite. Oh, the memories...

RR&R was and will always be my favorite cereal. Nothing comes close. The Rye did give it a unique flavor and the flakes were more tender than a bran flake. I'm afraid I have turned to drinking rye whiskey to overcome the depression of this cereal walking out on me. Kellogg's? Please. Come back.

Probably my number one or two cereal of all time. I believe they had changed the color of the packaging toward the end of the time they made it. I figured this was why it finally got dropped... due to people not seeing the dark red box and opting for other cereals. The taste was really good. Better then plain raisin bran. Too bad they do not make this anymore.

I concur... Raisins,Rice & Rye is one of my favorite cereals of all time! I daydream about it, I dream about it, I fantasize about it coming back to the market! Obviously, going by the several positive comments here, this cereal is in high demand after all of these years and Kellogg's doesn't give a hoot... Thanks Kellogg's!

Loved RR&R... I mean I'm looking it up online this many years later. I like Raisin Nut Bran and a couple of others, but the rye in the flakes had a really unique flavor. I wonder if you could reproduce these. Any ideas out there?

I ate this cereal in the 80s as well, when I was in my twenties. Then, suddenly, it disappeared. I've tried to find it on various websites that carry discontinued or limited products with no luck. Kellogg's should definitely bring it back. I would buy a case as well!

Sorry, raisin lovers - after Raisins Rice and Rye, the others just can't compete. There are too many sugared cereals and so-called health cereals (all with nuts) but nothing as good as this was. I have been hoping for a revival for years and would also line up for case lots, Kellogg's. Sign me. 62 but not crazy yet...

Obviously, this was a really good cereal if I can remember the name of it after all these years. I frequently search online trying to find it or something similar, but there is nothing. PLEASE bring it back and make a bunch - I will buy it by the case and probably eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner for awhile.

This cereal was awesome! This is one that could be brought back, if even for a limited time, rather easily. Why don't companies bring back the old cereals for a limited time? They would be huge and really stand out in a world of boring cereals. Do it!

Where can I get this cereal? I really sounds like something I'd like a lot. I'd never heard of Raisins Rice And Rye before now. Not seeing it for sale online anywhere. Advice?

This cereal was one of the best I've eaten. Then, I went to the grocery store for another box one day and it had vanished off the supper market shelves. What happened? I agree, with most, that Kellogg's should bring it back. It was healthy and delicious.

Excellent cereal... but I remember thinking that this cereal was discontinued (in the mid-1980's) then noticed that Kellogg's switched to a yellow box vs. the dark red box. So my assumption was that some overly "smart" Marketing guy thought the color was too much like other cereals... switched the color and sales dropped. Kellogg's probably thought "gee this guy was really smart... so the cereal must suck..."

I ate Raisins, Rice and Rye in the 1980s regularly and really enjoyed it. I believe the reason I liked it was that this cereal digested easily. I know this now to be true since taking a blood test that determined I have low grade wheat, corn and oat allergies. Most cereals contain wheat, corn and/or oats. Really the only cereals by in large that contain an alternative is Rice Chex and Rice Krispies. Raisins, Rice and Rye would be perfect for my condition since I have no allergic reaction to all three main ingredients. It is believed many people are developing gluten allergies these days because of the over-saturation of wheat, corn and oats in many foods.

I'm definitely of the "Raisin Persuasion" but I don't get the Rye. I never got to try this cereal, but I love Raisins in cereal. My favorite is Raisin Nut Crunch. All I can think of when I hear "rye" is rye bread, but I can't imagine that's what it tasted like. What did the flakes taste like?

Re: Comment by Chuck... They aren't all Irish. The guy for Rye distinctively said "und" ... kind of a mitteleurope guy.

Anyone remember the commercial? 3 men who spoke in rhyme w/a heavy Irish brogue prepared to board a ship, only to be distracted by the cereal, and finally decide to let it go on w/o them so they can enjoy their breakfast ("And will we wave our good ship bye bye bye? BYE BYE BYE!").

This was the best cereal ever! I loved it. One night in 1981 I remember having a bowl after church on a Sunday night and it had so many raisins in the bowl I had that I literally got tired of chewing! hahahaha
