Introduced in 2019
This cereal consists of colorful puffs (vaguely similar to Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries) in the flavors of green apple, blue raspberry, grape, cherry and watermelon. The cereal is based on Jolly Rancher hard candies, an American classic candy that dates back to the late 1940's.
The back of the introductory cereal box states, "We've got a hunch that you'll love it a bunch... 'cuz we've got that fruity crunch!"
The cereal was exclusively available at Walmart in December of 2019, with expectations for a larger nationwide rollout to other retailers in March 2020.
The ingredients listed on the nutrition panel are whole grain corn, sugar, rice flour, corn syrup, canola oil, salt, tricalcium phosphate, trisodium phosphate, natural and artificial flavor, red 40, blue 1, citric acid, malic acid, turmeric extract, and a smattering of vitamins and minerals.

This cereal is unavailable in my area and with the pandemic visiting a store to check availability is not really an option. The only way I could get it is by Walmart.com. I waited more two months to order, because it was out of stock. Finally, after waiting for a new experience - It's kinda nasty, not fruity, nor reminiscent of the candy. I expected a lot with a name like Jolly Rancher attached.
