Introduced in 1988
This cereal was described on the front of the box as "a sweetened cereal with other natural flavors." Other text on the box included "orange, lemon and cherry flavor" and "100% U.S. RDA of Vitamin C". The cereal looked remarkably similar to Kellogg's Froot Loops.
The Fruit Rings mascots were an orange, a lemon and cherry. It could be interpreted that the orange was the father, the lemon was a mother and the cherry was a child. Although this assumption is probably incorrect as every one knows when an orange marries a lemon they do not produce cherries.
Company Description: Ralston was originally part of The Ralston-Purina Company which was formed in 1902. The name Ralston stems from a minor social movement in the late 19th Century called Ralstonism - created by Webster Edgerly. Followers of the movement (about 800,000) followed the motto "Regime, Activity, Light, Strength, Temperation, Oxygen and Nature" - the first letters of which spelled out "Ralston"...

What do you think of Fruit Rings?By HappySwordsman (Team Breakfast Member)
Regarding the statement that 'when an orange marries a lemon they do not produce cherries'... Perhaps the Cherry was an adopted child? Seems plausible to me.
