Krumbles
From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1912


Memorable tag lines:
  • Crisp shreds of Golden Goodness... a dish that's a winner for wartime!
  • The new whole wheat food with the delicious flavor originated by the Kellogg's Toasted CornFlake Co.
  • All wheat. Ready to Eat.
According to cereal legend, this cereal began as an attempt by Kellogg's to make shredded wheat biscuits. Unfortunately... or fortunately... the biscuits crumbled in the package. Instead of backtracking to make the perfect biscuit, Kellogg's decided to crumble the broken biscuits even more and sell them as Krumbles cereal.

Company Description: Kellogg's was originally founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906. The company's founder Will Keith Kellogg is credited with inventing corn flakes along with his brother John Harvey Kellogg. The company was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922...

This was my very favorite cereal when I was growing up in the '50''s! I even wrote to the company expressing my love for it, and it seemed to disappear from markets after that! I sure wish Kellogg's would start making it again!

I wish Kellogg's would bring Krumbles back. My whole family loved this cereal when we were young. Makes my mouth water right now. Try to bring it back and I bet you will see Krumbles again will be a number ONE cereal.

Krumbles was my all time favorite cereal and I was very sad when Kellogg's stopped making it. We toured the Kellogg's plant in either 1972 or 73 and found out it was not longer being produced. But we found a very small store in Battle Creek, MI and I bought 12 boxes of it and enjoyed it sparingly for many months. A great cereal that should do well in today's market to us older folks.

Why in the world can't Krumbles be brought back for us adults? Couldn't Kellogg's just dump one of their sugar kids cereals to make room for it?

Can you buy Krumbles anywhere anymore? I'm an old-timer and this was my favorite breakfast. I'd like to taste it again.

This cereal was my favorite also. I am not much of a fan of cereal, but Kellogg's Krumbles was so good. I would probably drive to just about anywhere to taste Krumbles again. I tried several cereals in a quest for something that tasted like Krumbles and they all went directly into the trash. I do not eat cereal because there is nothing that compares to my Krumbles.
