I'm a cereal mixer, in that I start with an unsweetened cereal like Grape Nuts or shredded wheat, then I top it with a slightly sweetened cereal. Almond Delight remains my all time favorite topper.

Why do they discontinue the best ones? I still miss it. My all-time favorite. Nothing current compares.

Why did they ever discontinue a 'fan favorite'?

Another promotion they did with this cereal was foreign currency. Every box came with actual paper currency from around the world. It was extremely low value currency, but still really cool!

Yet another great cereal that I wish they would bring back. When it first came out you could get a free box. I had my friend get free boxes for me, that is how much I loved it.

The first time I tried Almond Delight, I instantly loved it. After I finished my first box, I went back to the store the following week looking forward to more, but they had discontinued it. Yep, I fell in love with it the very month the stopped making it. :-(

Ditto other comments. Not too sweet, healthy almonds and stays crunchy until the end. Bring it back!

I really, really wish Almond Delight would make a comeback. Does anyone know if Ralston sold the recipe to General Mills? Somebody has to make this again!

The closest thing I've found to Almond Delight is Malt-o-Meal Oat Blenders. Not exactly the same but good.

Every time I buy cereal, I miss this stuff... it was the best. I've tried to buy something "close" and have always been left disappointed. I wish one of the companies would bring this stuff back.

I remember eating this as a kid in the 80s and 90s. Never had better. They likely don't make it anymore because licensing or marketing was ignored for it when the company was bought out many times. It's common these days for food companies to change hands but keep names and some of the trademarks.

It was the best! The cereal ads were aimed at adults, for an adult sweetened cereal, I was a kid back then. I tried it once when we were out of Wheaties - I WAS HOOKED! It was GREAT! Some company somewhere: PLEASE BRING IT BACK!

This was better than any cereal General Mills has made. So they had to get rid of it. It's just how business goes. I grew up to this cereal, my whole family loved it and misses it :(

It's the best. The flakes were crisp and much better than Corn Flakes or Frosted Flakes. They probably didn't even need the almonds to taste good, but they certainly didn't hurt :)

This cereal was my all-time favorite. Can anybody suggest a cereal that's similar today? Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds was a little close, but just made me miss this classic more.

This cereal actually was launched in 1985 by Gardner Advertising in St. Louis. Avrett, Free & Ginsberg must have gained the account when Gardner went under in late 1986.

As I grew older my taste matured as well. Almond Delight was in my opinion and that of my kids at the time, daddy's cereal. Well that was OK gone were the JETS and PUFFA PUFFA RICE.

Somebody out there is an idiot. This was by far the best prepared cereal ever made, and it had the best premium ever offered [US, foreign, or repro currency, all of great interest] and now all we have are cheap, trashy substitutes watered down with cornflakes!

Why is this cereal made by a dog food company? Also, why does it have -1 mg of potassium? Is that even possible? What?

I always knew eventually I would "lose" this cereal. Everytime I went to buy it, there was only one size and only one row of this cereal and I seemed to be the one taking it. A case of how important having a marketing giant with a lot of capital behind your product is to making it successful.

Thanks for the site. The wonders of the internet on display that I could find info on this and find out what ever happened to my favorite cereal. With all the moving around I did as a kid, I was kind of hoping maybe my groceries just didn''t carry it, but no, it is gone forever.
