Rocky Road
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1986

This cereal was described on the box as a "sweetened corn cereal with marshmallows covered with a chocolate-flavored coating and nuts".

A television commercial introduced the cereal along with three new characters: a guitar-playing chocolate corn puff named Choco, a vanilla corn puff (also with a guitar) named Van, and a microphone-wielding and alluringly feminine chocolate-covered marshmallow named Marsha.

Introducing Rocky Road Cereal Commercial

Narrator: It's new Rocky Road Cereal with Choco, Van and featuring Marsha.

Marsha (singing): Choco-chocolate puffs can make my heart sing. Them vanilla puffs is such a tasty thing. But Rocky Road had got something special for you. It's got a chocolatey and nutty covered marshmallow too.

Narrator: New Rocky Road Cereal. Little marshmallows with a chocolatey, nutty coating mixed with vanilla and chocolatey puffs. Part of this complete breakfast.

Marsha (singing): Waking up to Rocky Road makes your breakfast sing.

    This was my favorite cereal as a kid. Every time my mom took us to the market for shopping, I'd go and get my cereal. One day we went for groceries and it was gone. My mom said, sorry I guess they don't have it anymore. So I had to find another cereal to grow up with. I don't know why they pulled it but even as of now as an adult, I'm a little frustrated on why they pulled it when other cereals that started are still being sold today. General Mills should bring it back. Cereal is like a mixture of Kix, Coco Puffs and their own concoction of cereal bits.

    This is in the top 5 of my cereals from the 80's. It was one of the best tasting cereals from the 80's.

    I COMPLETELY forgot about this cereal until just now. I voted for this one. It was AMAZING. As a Canadian back in the 80's and early 90's, people loved going across the border to the states to shop etc... before the US became 'hated'. I always brought this cereal on the trips we would take to the US. We had nothing compared to the states' cereal until free trade. Like you'd see all these commercials for cereals and we never get them. It sucked. Then TV specials and movies, videos etc, etc... some cartoons didn't come on... but anyways, this one was the bomb.

    Funny story about this cereal... I remember being in 5th grade and my teacher asked me what I ate for breakfast because I was seeming more alert (or maybe just more hyper from the sugar buzz) so I told her 'Rocky Road Cereal' and the whole class started laughing. Not sure why it was that funny, maybe the other kids were eating boring cereal but I was proud of my Rocky Road and that it woke me up in the mornings. My sweet tooth isn't the same now so I probably wouldn't buy it now, but it was great fun back then.
