I also remembered it as Countdown cereal with a photo of John Glenn's Atlas rocket lifting off... hmmmm. My favorite too.

This must be what I remember as a second grader growing up in the heady days of the space race. I remembered it as "Countdown" cereal, with a Mercury or Gemini rocket lifting off of the pad complete with gantry, but the cereal was a lot like Alpha-Bits. SO this must have been it. Only lasted a little while, but while it was on the market, it was my favorite!
