Raisin Nut Bran
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1987

This cereal was described on one box as "delicious nut-covered raisins, slivered almonds and crisp bran flakes." A different version of the box had slightly different wording: "Crisp whole wheat and bran flakes with delicious nut-covered raisins and slivered almonds."

A television commercial that introduced the cereal had the following narration:

"Presenting the biggest thing to hit fruit and nut cereal since raisins... Raisin Nuts, those big tasty guys in Raisin Nut Bran. Enormous juicy raisins dipped in nuts then mixed with crunchy almonds and crispy bran flakes for one hugely delicious taste. Raisin Nut Bran with Raisin Nuts for big time raisin taste."

Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

    I haven't been able to find this cereal in any stores in our area. Has it been discontinued? It is the only cereal my husband will eat. Frustrated in Sandy, Utah!

    I usually love this cereal but in the last box the raisins were like rocks and I was very disappointed. I don't understand why they are so hard that I cant chew them.

    I bought a box of Raisin Nut Bran from Hy-Vee east in Norfolk, Nebraska. I would try it for the first time.

    They don't cover the raisins in nuts anymore and cover them in candy stuff. Otherwise, it's great (p.s. still wish they put almonds around the raisins).

    I wish all grocery stores would have Raisin Nut Bran Cereal in stock. It is the best cereal on the market.

    Whenever I eat cereal... I eat this cereal! I love this cereal. The flakes don't go soggy, like some other brands. The nut-covered raisins, make it even more delicious! I usually like a big breakfast, but this satisfies me. I just wish it didn't cost so much... but... I guess... you get what you pay for. The cost is well worth it! I shopped until I found it! Well worth the trips!

    My 6 kids love this cereal but alas, my 'rule' is that I will only spend $2 per box of cereal. Most of the cereals go on sale for 1.99 fairly regularly, but not Raisin Nut Bran. I never see coupons for this cereal either. If I could find a coupon to bring the price closer to the $2 mark, my kids would be happier in the mornings with their beloved cereal.

    This is the best cereal ever! Although it would be even better with more nuts and raisin.
