Crispy Wheats 'n Raisins
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1979

This cereal was described on the box as "whole wheat flakes lightly coated with brown sugar and honey- with Raisins."

A 1979 magazine ad described it this way:

Hey! This Isn't Raisin Bran!
Try a bowl of Crsipy Wheats 'n Raisins.
Crisp whole wheat flakes.
Touch of honey
Fantastic flavor combination.
Your family will love it!

The back of a 1990 cereal box declared, "The sog stops here."

"Hey, soggy raisin bran eaters... you don't have to sog anymore. Crispy Wheats 'N Raisins is touched with honey and stays crisp in milk. Just one taste of Crispy Wheats 'N Raisins and you'll know why the sog stops here!"

Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

Best cereal EVER! Please bring it back. Love a crunchy cereal with raisins! If you can't bring it back, consider selling the recipe to a competitor!

Seriously, even as a kid who wanted to eat all the sugary cereals, this was by far the best cereal out there. And I miss it. Like crazy! Bring it back, GM! Quit wasting your money on those stupid Oui yogurts that no one wants and start making Crispy Wheats and Raisins again!

My all time favorite cereal. Great wheat flakes that stayed crispy, and plump, not those hard sugar coated, raisins, so plump and chewy. Please bring this King of breakfast cereals back!

I totally agree with everyone. PLEASE, bring it back! It was much better than 'Raisin Bran'.

Man, I and my family miss this ceareal more then anything. I am craving a big bowl, just thinking about it. Big mistake taking that one of the market. Loved that it never got mushy, like reg raisin bran. I've tried to like the reg raisin bran, but I got tired of the bland taste and trying to inhale it before it turns to nothing, but mush. Please bring it back. I will be a customer of it for life.

It's 2019 and cereal sales are suffering... Bring this back please, it was far above any other Raisin Bran cereal out there. Was one of two cereals that I ate and now I am stuck with eating Wheaties or nothing.

Why General Mills stopped producing this cereal is beyond me! Probably all about money. It was the only raisin bran cereal I could eat, one of only two cereals total, and I haven't found one to compare to it yet.
