Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989)
From: Ralston
Introduced in 1989

When introduced, this cereal was described on the box as "crunchy, sweetened 'ninja nets' with 'ninja turtle' marshmallows". Pizza-shaped marshmallows were later added. The "ninja net" cereal pieces looked very much like Chex cereal pieces.

Some notable premiums included with the cereal were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cereal bowls, TMNT cups that changed color when cold liquid was added, cut-out collector cards from the 1990 "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" film and a send-away offer for a hologram t-shirt.

    Loved this stuff! I was lucky enough to purchase the original art used for the image on the front of the box! The pride of my collection!

    Ralston, how dare you go out of business and stop making this Ninja Turtle cereal. This was the best cereal in recent decades. I loved the green honey ooze that came with it. Years later, it was re-released as the Spiderman cereal in the early 90's. Kids today don't even know what they're missing.

    Absolutely loved this cereal. One of my all-time favorites. I had collected all the Ninja Turtle bowls that came with it as a kid. They should totally bring this back.

    This and Circus Fun cereal were my favs. If they brought these back, I would rarely eat much else for at least a month or two. In all seriousness.

    Please bring it back,my husband is driving me crazy talking about how Great it was. He is thinking if the movie is back so will the cereal! I think if someone brings it back you will make a good fortune! You can count on us for a case a week of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cereal.
