    A cereal ahead of its time. Now that cinnamon is popular, it would be the right time to re-introduce it to the public.

    Please bring back Cinnamon Cap'n Crunch cereal... it was a delicious cereal... and I was so disappointed when it was discontinued... it was the best... cinnamon flavor, with lots of crunch, and not too sweet. Please bring it back.

    Was not a fan of this cereal. Because of the cereal's process, it got soggy in milk immediately. Perhaps that is why it was discontinued. Jean LaFoote is not Cap'n Crunch.
