Oatmeal Raisin Crisp
From: General Mills

The slogan for this cereal was "Look Ma! I'm eating my oatmeal."

A memorable TV commercial from 1991 for Oatmeal Raisin Crisp featured actors Jerry Mathers and Barbara Billingsley revisiting their roles as Beaver Cleaver and June Cleaver from the 50's & 60's TV series Leave It To Beaver.

In the commercial, Jerry Mathers asks, "Gee Mom, what's this," when Barbara Billingsley sets a box of the cereal in front of him.

"Oatmeal Raisin Crisp," replies Billingsley.

"Awww... neat," Mathers fires back.

"It's Oatmeal made just your way... crispy flakes with oatmeal and a touch of brown sugar."

Mathers stirs a bowl of the cereal with a spoon, "Gobs of raisins and almonds... I love Oatmeal Raisin Crisp... Look Ma! I'm eating my oatmeal. Wait until I tell the guys."

Billingsley looks at the middle aged Mathers and responds, "Maybe now, we should talk about finding you your own place."

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

I have been eating this cereal for years. It is the only cereal I know that doesn't get soggy in milk.

I'm now searching for it on the web. After Krogers discontinued it I've been buying it at Target but now they stopped selling it also. Very frustrating. GM also sells a Fiber One cereal but the flakes are not the same and loom like machine made plastic.
