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...

Krumbles was my all time favorite! My wife has heard me lament for years that it is no longer available. In our household when something good disappears we call it going the way of Krumbles. BRING IT BACK PLEASE! - Keith in San Diego

What was the reason why Kellogs stopped making Krumbles cereal? It was my favorite cereal when I was a kid. Would they consider bringing this cereal back? I 'm sure that it would be a best seller!! BRING IT BACK!!

Krumbles cereal was one of my favorite cereals when I grew up in the 50's. I've missed them every morning since they disappeared from the store shelves years ago! I've told my children and grandchildren about Krumbles and how much I looked forward to having them for breakfast. Hey Kellogg's Company, how about bringing Krumbles back so all the generations that have missed out can enjoy this wonderful cereal!

My favorite cereal too! When I could no longer find it on the East Coast, a friend would bring it to me from the Midwest. Please bring it back!

Isn't there a Kellogg's product manager out there paying attention? If you're not going to bring it back at least license the formula to a company like Barbara's that has realized there's a huge market for unsweetened whole wheat to start the day. And to my taste Krumbles was the best of the best. And that's not nostalgia talking, read the comments, we can still taste it and feel the unique texture of those little shreds of whole wheat goodness. Anyone else ever try it with Pet Milk? Ok, that IS nostalgia. :)
