Double Chex
From: Ralston
Introduced in 1984

This cereal was described on the box as "lightly sweetened... crispy rice & crunchy corn." It was ostensibly a combination of Corn Chex Cereal and Rice Chex Cereal. In the early 90's, the cereal was slightly reformulated to be sweetened with honey.

Ads for the cereal capitalized on the word "double" in the cereal name using the slogan, "I I Love Love Double Double Chex Chex!!"

Double Chex Cereal Commercial

Here's the lyrics to the jingle for Double Chex Cereal from a 1990 commercial:

"I, I... love, love... double, double... Chex, Chex
better, better... than, than... the, the... rest, rest
wheat, wheat... rice, rice... double, double... crunch, crunch...
crackle, crackle... crisp, crisp... bite, bite... munch, munch..."

Double Chex Cereal Profile

The ingredients in the non-honey sweetened version of this cereal were: milled rice, milled yellow corn, brown sugar, sugar, salt, malt syrup, sodium bicarbonate and a smattering of vitamins and iron.

Please Note: We've determined the 1984 year of introduction based on a commercial we found, but there's some question as to if the commercial is actually from 1988. If you have information to confirm the year this cereal was introduced, please let us know.

    I remember it being hexagon shaped, with one side being corn and the other rice, not just the two separate flavors in one box.

    I assume it was the same Double Chex - but I remember one from the early 90s that had twins singing "I I love love double double chex chex, better better than than the the rest rest. Wheat wheat rice rice double double crunch crunch. Crackle crackle crisp crisp bite bite munch munch.... It's lightly sweetened!" (repeat)
