Rice Honeys
From: Nabisco
Introduced in 1954


This cereal began as Ranger Joe Rice Honnies in 1939. The National Biscuit Company (later known as Nabisco) bought the the cereal in 1954 and changed its name to Rice Honeys.

In the late 1960's, sales of Rice Honeys began to sag. In 1971, in an attempt to revive the cereal, the name was changed again, this time to Winnie-The-Pooh Great Honey Crunchers. Despite a barrage of marketing centered around the Winnie-The-Pooh character, the cereal's sales continued to disappoint.

Nabisco give it one last shot. About a year after the Pooh incarnation, the cereal changed names for the last time, this time to Klondike Pete's Crunchy Nuggets.

In 1975, Klondike Pete's Crunchy Nuggets was discontinued and the cereal that had existed under one name or another for 36 years was finally gone.



Company Description: Nabisco's history dates back to 1898 when three bakery conglomerates merged to form The National Biscuit Company - comprised of 114 bakeries. In 1901, The National Biscuit Company introduced the Nabisco Cracker. It wasn't until 1971 that the company changed it's name to Nabisco... Read on and see all cereals from Nabisco

Rice Honeys and Sky King were staples of my childhood. I always wondered what happened to Rice Honeys and had no idea of the name changes the cereal had undergone. I'd buy them if they were available! Great post workout snack!

I remember their jingle line, 'Nabisco Wheat Honeys, also Rice'. Didn't care for the wheat ones, but the rice honeys was one of my favorite cereals.

This was one of my all time favorite cereals as a kid. I still get a desire for it now. I was surprised and disappointed that it got discontinued. I remember working for a grocery store in high school and asking if they could special order me 2 boxes. They did - I got 2 cases of the cereal. I was in heaven for several months as I ate them.

Are you aware there hasn't been a pre-sweetened puffed rice cereal since this went off the market?

These were great. The only problem 50 years ago was the humidity factor. We loved these and Rice Krinkles. I suppose these were taken off the market because of the sugar content.

The prizes were the best by far, especially the Sea Monsters and the Sky King collection. Gramp's comments are right on; NO additional fruit or sugar needed, with a honey taste that hasn't been equaled. One of the tastes of childhood that I can still clearly recall half a century later. A mystery to me why this product isn't currently on the shelves.

I must have been 3 when the Sky King prizes were featured. I remember getting the plane and at least one of the human figures. It was so exciting! This was a wonderful cereal, with an intense honey flavor not since replicated. No added sugar or fruit required.
