Dinky Donuts
From: Ralston
Introduced in 1981

This cereal was described on the box as "a sweet and crunchy wholesome cereal."

When the cereal first appeared in stores, the box showed three kids in business clothes with the text "Approved by our distinguished panel of experts."

The kids were soon replaced on boxes by a sort of man-child in a striped red jumpsuit with an attached propeller beanie who drove a vehicle (possibly a sort of spaceship) that looked like a donut. It is possible - though not confirmed by this website - that the name of this mascot was Dinky. At least that's what we would have called him.

One of the many Ralston cereals that I miss. Sweet, but not too sweet. Unless you wanted a second bowl, then it was too much of a good thing. Really miss Dinky Donuts.

Oh my God... this was the ultimate in cereal! Me (40) and my brother (44) to this day go around saying we wish we had a big bowl of Dinky Donuts.

I also remember, after the success of Dinky Donuts, they came out with powdered donuts.

I remember this cereal still to this day. I have searched high and low for a cereal like it -- no such luck. This cereal was good to the last spoon full
