Cinnamon Streusel
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1996

The complete name of this cereal was Betty Crocker Cinnamon Streusel Cereal. It was described on the first box as "crispy flakes topped with delicious cinnamon and brown sugar streusel (with the) delicious baked taste of cinnamon streusel." The last part was changed to "home-baked taste of Cinnamon Streusel" on later boxes.

This cereal was introduced by General Mills at the same time as another Betty Crocker branded cereal... Dutch Apple Cereal. A double-pack which contained packets of both cereals was available for a short time.

The following description of both Betty Crocker cereals appeared on the back of the cereal box:

Now Betty Crocker Bakes Your Family Breakfast... by the Spoonful!

For generations, families have loved Betty Crocker's home-baked tastes. Now you can give your family her delicious tastes every morning with one of Betty's first cereals ever!

Betty Crocker's new Cinnamon Streusel Cereal is wholesome flakes topped with bakery-fresh ingredients such as cinnamon and brown sugar streusel, with a touch of Betty's special icing.

New Dutch Apple Cereal is just as tempting. Its delicious flakes have a dutch apple crisp topping made from real apples, brown sugar and toasted oats.

And of course, Betty adds her familiar touch of love and care to give your family all the ingredients of a sweeter morning.

One of the best cereals ever (along with the apple version)! I still remember what this tasted like - 20 years later. I put this right up there next to Nerds cereal and the original Cookie Crisp.
