Cool. Never tried it, but I would if it ever came back. Which it won't, I know.

No doubt that this was one great tasting cereal, unlike today's selections. I do remember Fruity Freakies tasting similar, so this would be a complete toss up between the 2 as to which one was best! We need a time machine people!

I loved this cereal growing up. Too bad there isn't anything on the market with a similar taste.

One of the top 10 cereals on my all-time list and definitely running neck-and-neck with Pac-Man cereal as the best video-game based cereal ever!

I believe there was another DKJ cereal ad that featured Chad Allen when he was a boy.
