Cookie-Crisp: Chocolate Chip
From: Ralston
Introduced in 1977


Originally a Ralston product, this cereal is now available from General Mills.

When the cereal was first introduced, the cereal's mascot announced the cereal like this (on the back of an early box):

"Kanodle, Kazoo and how do you do? I'm Cookie Jarvis with good news for you!

"Here's a brand new cereal named Cookie-Crisp that comes in two delicious flavors, Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Wafer. My new cereal tastes like little cookies, but stays crisp in milk. Each bite is sweet, crunchy and unbelievably good.

"Cookie-Crisp is fortified with 8 essential vitamins and iron. A bowl of Cookie-Crisp with one-half cup of milk gives you 25% of the recommended daily allowance of these important vitamins and iron.

"Remember, kids, a good breakfast consists of juice or fruit, toast with butter or margarine, and Cookie-Crisp cereal."

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"...

    As stated in a another comment, it is available from General Mills. Ralston, the original manufacturer, went out of business. I can't believe EmptyCanvas is a member...apparently they don't like any of the good cereals lol. I agree with kdj and McFly.... This cereal should be like 2 or 3 on your list of the greatest cereals. It was marketed better and tasted better when Ralston made it. I miss the cop and robber commercials and cereal boxes.

    I enjoyed this when it was first released, and I liked the cookie taste, but it was a mouthful to eat!

    I wish it actually tasted like chocolate chip cookies. After 1 box I never bought them again. (myemptycanvasreviews.blogspot.com)

    It doesn't taste nearly as good now. Ralston made the best cereals. The General Mills version is nowhere as good.

    A decent desert cereal, but it can't stand next to some of the more elusive all-time gems of cereal history (i.e., Monopoly Cereal, Buzz Blasts, etc.)

    I loved this cereal! - Wow, nice ethics for the company though, hey? Can't imagine why they went out of business.
