Puffa Puffa Rice
From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1967


This cereal was described on the box as "puffed and toasted rice with brown cane sugar" with "oceans of energy".

In its first years, the cereal was presented with a definite Hawaiian or Polynesian theme. Island volcanoes, ocean scenes and palm fronds adorned various versions of the cereal box. When the cereal was first announced in ads, the announcer exclaimed "Nui! Nui! from Kellogg's" instead of "New! New!"

Around 1972, Kellogg's tried to promote the cereal with a smiling train having the title "Puffa Puffa Rice" puffing out of the trains steam engine.

The cereal disappeared around 1975.

This was the best cereal. I was devastated when they stopped making it. Kellogg's should (and MUST) bring it back!

This was my all-time absolute favorite cereal. I know it's not likely to ever come back, but a guy can wish.

I think they'd be smart to bring this one back. Since it is a rice cereal, that means gluten free, right? There could definitely be a market!

Face it folks, Kellogg's is not bringing back this cereal. It's nice that it brings back happy memories for many all those years ago. In a bowl - put half plain puffed rice and half Kellogg's smacks or Post Golden Crisp, pour milk and enjoy. That's the closest you'll get to the flavor of this nowadays.
