Sun Crunchers
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1994

"Taste the SUNsation!"

This cereal was described on the front of the box as "sunflower seeds on hearty, lightly-sweetened flakes of corn and whole wheat". The back of the box gave a very long description of the cereal:

"Introducing New Sun Crunchers cereal... When sunflower seeds meet hearty flakes, the flavor grows with every delicious bite. Sun Crunchers is a bold, vibrant cereal with the extraordinary taste of sunflower seeds on every flake. Delicious, hearty flakes made from corn and whole wheat, with a crunch that will make your taste buds bloom!

"But for all its exceptional flavor, Sun Crunchers is something else as well. It's healthy. It's low in fat. It's a good source of fiber, and an excellent source of 8 essential vitamins and iron. We've planted the seeds for a unique new taste of breakfast. But to truly believe just how good Sun Crunchers is, you'll have to taste it for yourself."

The first 8 ingredients listed on the nutritional panel were corn meal, whole wheat, sugar, sunflower seeds, brown sugar syrup, salt, honey and baking soda.

Sun Crunchers Cereal Commercial Screen Grabs

A 1994 TV commercial introducing the cereal had the following voice-over:

"Have you noticed that sunflowers are standing a bit taller lately? It's 'cause they're the secret to the great taste in new Sun Crunchers cereal. Sun Crunchers... the only cereal that's bursting with crunchy bits of toasted sunflower seeds... wrapped around hearty flakes of wheat and corn... all lightly sweetened for that Sun Crunchers taste everybody's gonna love. New Sun Crunchers... taste the SUNsation."

I have been looking for this cereal for years by entering the name into Google randomly when it popped into my mind. I typed it in today, got this result and almost cried! Hands down the best cereal of my childhood! I don't know why on Earth they would discontinue it. If God really exists, he will bring this back to humanity one day.

I am still bothered by the loss of this cereal. Once I discovered it, no other cereal could compete. I ate it daily from finding it until no more could be found. Make it again I promise to buy it by the case.
