Sun Flakes
From: Ralston
Introduced in 2000

According to the now-defunct Sun Flakes page on Ralston Foods website:

"SUN FLAKES turns a plain bowl of milk into a sweet start to your day. Sweetened with NutraSweet instead of sugar, SUN FLAKES tastes great, and each serving has fewer carbohydrates than the leading sweetened cereal. This can be important if you are counting carbohydrate exchanges.

SUN FLAKES is a multi-grain cereal with 10 essential vitamins and minerals. It tastes so good you'll want to try SUN FLAKES whether you're simply watching your sugar intake or diabetic.

Compare labels so you can make an educated decision in choosing your breakfast cereal. Take a look and compare SUN FLAKES to Kellogg's Frosted Flakes."

Company Description: Ralston was originally part of The Ralston-Purina Company which was formed in 1902. The name Ralston stems from a minor social movement in the late 19th Century called Ralstonism - created by Webster Edgerly. Followers of the movement (about 800,000) followed the motto "Regime, Activity, Light, Strength, Temperation, Oxygen and Nature" - the first letters of which spelled out "Ralston"...

It was the best alternative dry cereal for people with diabetes. Because it was sweetened with an artificial sweetener, it was much lower in carbohydrates than other sweetened cereals. Thus, the perfect compromise for diabetics who love dry cereal.

I really, really wish they would make this cereal again. For the time it was out, it was the only cereal I'd eat and it was the best tasting cereal out there. If only there was a way to get it again.

When my 14 year old became Type I diabetic, this cereal was what made her not feel like she was being cheated. I would buy this cereal again and again if I could find it. Bad decision to stop making it with all the youth becoming type II diabetic now.

My mother loved this cereal and she passed away in 1993. I have been trying to find it but could not. Now, I understand it is no longer available. I would definitely buy if brought back.
