Popeye Sweet Crunch
From: Quaker

The back of one package described the entire line of Popeye cereals like this:

The first five ingredients listed on the package were corn flour, sugar, oat flour, brown sugar and partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil.

This cereal later became Sweet Crunch Cereal without the Popeye branding.

Other Popeye cereals available at the same time included Related cereals that were available at the same time included Popeye Puffed Wheat, Popeye Puffed Rice, Popeye Cocoas Blasts, Popeye Sweet Puffs and Popeye Fruit Curls.

Company Description: The Quaker Oats Company was founded in 1901 with the merger of three oat milling operations in the Mid-Western United States.

    I used to buy this cereal all the time. It was awesome. At the same time they sold it, I used to buy bags of only dried cereal marshmallows like the ones in Lucky Charms. The store I shopped at stopped carrying them and I never saw them again. Any clue where I can buy them? They only cost about $1.50 or so. Now people sell them $5.00 for 3 oz. That is ridiculous. Any ideas where one might find them today?

    This cereal was not an imitation of Quisp. It is the same cereal rebranded. In the mid 90s, Quaker who produced this Popeye cereal, dropped Popeye and just called it Sweet Crunch, then it faded away by the 2000s, only to briefly reappear as Quisp again sold online. Now it's all gone. But quite frankly having tried all varied names of this cereal. I know why Quaker wont' bring this cereal back. It's already there. It's Captain Crunch! Quaker wised up and stopped selling reshaped cereal as they had done over the past 50 years.

    I loved this cereal as a little kid. I also searched for it as an adult and found the Quaker Oat Crisp cereal. It's not the same. I agree this cereal should be brought back and the recipe used to make it should not be changed. I hate how they have changed the taste of some of our cereals today. I still buy cereal today and lots of it. I have to have at least 5 boxes at all times. Lol! I live in Milwaukee and I go to Illinois just to buy the crisp cereal. Please bring this one back.

    This cereal was the same as Quisp. I say that because it was made by the same company.

    Absolutely love the cereal... however. I can never find it in the stores. If I ever found out how I can buy it on the internet and have it shipped and or find it in stores ever again, I would buy it until the day I have no teeth and couldn't chew! Absolutely amazing cereal!
