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

This was the best cereal on the market for many years. Why was it removed? We would like to know.

Grew up on this stuff. So much better than Kellogg's (BOYCOTT) or Post. Why do companies always seem to discontinue and take the good stuff away?
