Honey Nut Clusters
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1995

This cereal originated as simply Clusters cereal in 1986. We believe the cereal changed names in 1995, but we don't have a firm confirmation of that date.

The cereal's mascot was a squirrel who always tried to get his hands on the "sweet nutty taste".

A cute account of a press tour by the squirrel appeared in the November 13, 1998 Los Angeles Times:

"Celebrity Rodent Bureau: A squirrel that has appeared in TV ads for Honey Nut Clusters cereal began his first media tour this week. According to his publicist, the bushy-tailed creature flew to New York, where he is staying in a hotel suite and being driven around town in a chauffeured van.

"The publicist also issued an official biography for the 3-year-old furball, who stands 10 inches high and is said to have a degree from Nutgers University."

Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

Shortly after introducing myself to this cereal, it was discontinued. I would eat it all different times of the day. I really loved it. I hope they bring it back.

This was the best cereal ever! I still look in different stores when I go out of state to hope that it is there. I once found it in FL when visiting relatives and bought all the boxes on the shelf to bring home! Bring it back!

My favorite cereal EVER! The 'other' cereal (you all know who I mean) is terrible, a bowl of mushy wet flakes. Please bring it back or let those of us who love buy it online. I know I would.

Why can't we just have this cereal back already? It is too AMAZING and I seriously crave it. All other brands taste to oat-ish. Honey Nut Clusters has a distinct taste. Please... we beg... bring it back!

Please bring this back. Even now, I still instinctively look for it every time I'm at the grocery store.

You REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, and I can't stress that enough... you need to put up a Honey Nut Clusters commercial from the 90's.
