Corny-Snaps
From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1975


Corny-Snaps were described on the box as a "ready-sweetened corn & oat cereal." The cereal pieces had a Cheerios-type color and texture. They were curly - like the warped letter "S" or a misshapen Cheeto.

Company Description: Kellogg's was originally founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906. The company's founder Will Keith Kellogg is credited with inventing corn flakes along with his brother John Harvey Kellogg. The company was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922...

Shelly the Turtle (aka Snappy)
Shelly the Turtle (aka Snappy)

This character began representing Corny-Snaps Cereal in 1976. According to cereal mascot expert Topher, Shelly was originally a grumpy character and kids would try to make him smile.

Around the end of 1977, Shelly was transformed into a Zoro-type character. There are reports that he went by the name Snappy after the change.

I ate the cereal very often as a child. I loved it. It was my favorite cereal for a time. Why did they discontinue it? BRING IT BACK Kellogg's!

I have been trying to remember the name of this cereal forever!! All I could remember was Snappy (not his name but that he was a Zorro-style turtle). I loved this cereal, even though it was so crunchy it would tear up the roof of your mouth!

This cereal was the best with or without milk. Me and my siblings loved eating this while watching Saturday morning cartoons. Those were the good old days. CORNY-SNAPS :)

Corny Snaps was the best cereal I ever had. When I was a kid, I used to eat it every day. I loved that cereal. They should bring it back.

Corny snaps was the best cereal I have ever tasted. It stayed crunchy until you finished the very last one. It also tasted great. They really should bring it back. I think kids today would love them.

Me - scarfing down bowls of Corny Snaps! My big brother - 'I know you just chose it for the lame character on the box.' Me - 'Did not!' Of course, he was right. That's totally why I chose it. It was the Turtle as Zorro version. Loved it!

Corny Snaps was a greasy cereal. After being in the milk, it gave off a puddle of grease. I was highly upset. My mother bought that cereal. I wouldn't buy it it was free. Don't ever bring that mess back... ever!
