Sugar Jets
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1953


Sugar Jets was originally called Sugar Smiles Cereal.

Sugar Smiles was a combination of sugar-coated Kix cereal and plain Wheaties flakes. Within a year, the Wheaties flakes were removed from the cereal and the name was changed to Sugar Jets.

In 1964, the cereal was described on the box as "Space-Age Shapes In A Sugar-Toasted Oat Cereal."

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 have had the nickname 'Jet' for 60+ years because I loved this cereal. I was somewhat precocious and could recite my name, address and phone# at age 2 (born 1954 - did it in 1956). I was on my 2nd bowl and my mom told me if I didn't quit eating them, I'd turn into one. Trotted out to perform about 1 hour later. Asked my name, I said 'Jet'. 60 years later, I'm still 'Jet'. For those that loved them, Cap'n Crunch Peanut Butter is as close as you can get. I'm half-way thru my 2nd bowl as I type. Try 'em, really good.

Does anyone remember the early commercials for Sugar Jets? The kid eats the cereal and flies off into the wild blue yonder. I made my mom hold the kitchen door open while I ate my cereal. My earliest lesson in critical thinking skills.

The original Sugar Jets, early 1950's version... My Favorite as a kid. I literally cut my teeth on them!

I've been looking for the Sugar Jets song for years, especially the last line: 'I'm hungry, I'm hungry for good things to eat; for Sugar Jets, Sugar Jets, toasted treat. I eat Sugar Jets, the triple treat, ???????.' Anybody remember this?

Loved them as a kid and would buy them! Except I recall them looking like KIX but brown or redish & round. PS General Mills... be smart and always label your products with "PRODUCT OF:" Because "DISTRIBUTED BY:" IS NO LONGER WORTH ANYTHING!

Still a massively favorite memory of childhood, and yes, I would definitely buy them again, even though I'm diabetic now. I'd ration myself to a quarter-serving, if I had to, just to get that taste and texture and crunch again!
