Strawberry Shortcake
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1982


"It's berry delicious." This cereal was described on the box as an "artificial strawberry flavor frosted corn cereal." It was based on the the character Strawberry Shortcake who was originally designed in 1977 to appear on greeting cards for the American Greetings Corporation.

The following text is from the back of a box of Strawberry Shortcake cereal:

Meet Strawberry Shortcake and all her friends! They live in a "berry" special place called Strawberryland. All the kids enjoy a simple country life. They make delicious things to eat from all the good things that grow around them. Now, Strawberry Shortcake has her own strawberry flavored cereal. So won't you join her for a bowl? As she would say... it's "berry" good!

    This stuff tasted good at first, but it had a weird chemical aftertaste. I remember thinking it was poison when I was a kid.

    Strawberry Shortcake Cereal... BEST CEREAL EVER! I wish they'd bring it back and if they ever did I would hope they wouldn't alter the ingredients from the original ingredients.

    Good memories perhaps. As a 49 year old in 2017, I don't remember this cereal, but it looks like Kix cereal infused with pink dye and strawberry flavoring. Whatever gets your sugar fix on, I guess.
