Powdered Donutz
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1980


Described on the box as "a crispy, sweetened, 3-grain cereal". The pieces looked like chubby, powdered Cheerios. Text on the back of one of the first boxes read, "Hi! This is Powdered Donutz... a crispy new cereal that looks and tastes like real donuts! They're Do-licious!"

The first 5 ingredients listed on the nutritional panel were degermed yellow corn meal, sugar, oat flour, partially hydrogenated coconut oil and wheat flour.

There are a lot of cereals out there that taste like each other, either because they're made with similar ingredients or one is a deliberate knock-off, but nothing else tasted like Powdered Donutz cereal: Not before it came out, and not since it was discontinued. It was simple and not overly sweet, but tasted amazing. Definitely on my list of things I wish would make a reappearance.

I still vividly remember the taste and texture of this cereal. I can't forget it. This is why I want a time machine.

I absolutely loved this powered donut cereal. It was my absolute all time favorite I wish it was still out so my kids could try it.

I loved this stuff, except that whenever I ate it, I felt gross. It was delicious, but it must be the most unhealthy cereal in history. I eventually had to tell my mom not to get it any more.

General Mills needs to make this cereal once again. There's no question it was the best! I've been saying this for years... bring it back!

Does anyone know where we can buy this cereal online? PS. Can we get an Air Bender 2 movie while we are at it?

This cereal really did taste like donuts. This cereal didn't last long at least from the time I discovered it, but it left a lasting impression on me even still. Between the Powered Donutz and Chocolate Donutz, this was definitely the better of the two flavors.
