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 and Grape Nuts and Raisin Bran. I think they all have maltose as a sweetener/flavor. Yeah, it seems like many foods I like are discontinued. But maybe that's just because I don't notice when foods I don't eat are discontinued.

I remember enjoying Krumbles in the 50's. It was, and still is my favorite cereal, along with Corn Soya, which is also no longer produced... Too Bad, they were so good, and healthy.

When growing up and on into my 20's I looked forward to a large bowl of Kellogg's Krumbles every morning, sometimes having a bowl with my eggs and sausage. Kellogg's was stupid for dropping this wonderful tasting cereal. I called the company and asked one of their "agents" why this cereal was dropped. I was told, "It wasn't a good seller." Really? Everybody I hung out with back then had a box of Krumbles in their pantry. Kellogg's is run by nitwits. Look at the crapola they produce now... pure sugar with different names. Wheat Chex is a fair substitute for Krumbles, but even Wheat Chex doesn't have the rich flavor of Krumbles. BTW, they wouldn't give me their recipe. If I could get my hands on that recipe, I'd invest every cent I have and produce the cereal myself... and make a fortune on that cereal alone. I'd call it "Krumbles," with an inscription under the name, "A cereal for all ages... you're welcome."

The best cereal ever created by Kellogg's. The fact that it was and still is discontinued is a testament to the fact that Kellogg's is run by morons who don't give a crap. Perhaps someone else could make and market it under a different brand.

It was my dads as well as my favorite cereal when I was a kid. Way better than all the crap most companies put out targeted for kids. I would start eating cereal again if they brought it back.

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!!
