Introduced in 1965

Original Wackies contained "sweet banana flavor bits" and it was referred to in television commercials as "Banana Wackies".

This was a cereal my mother loved. It was the only kid cereal we would have to fight her over. It was like Lucky Charms, except the little marshmallow pieces were banana flavored, and the pieces were oat.

My mother used to buy Banana Wackies for me. Then years later, I told her, "hey mom, remember when you used to buy me Banana Wackies for me?" and she looked me in the eye and said, "I never bought those for you I've never heard of Banana Wackies." I freaked out for awhile thinking maybe I was going crazy. But how can anybody make up a name like Banana Wackies unless they were real! Thank goodness for the internet. Please bring them back. They were great.

I'm 49 and I remember these as a kid. They were delicious with an almost overpowing banana flavor. Basically they were banana Lucky Charms. If I had the power to bring back cereals I would chose Banana Wackies and Crazy Cow. On a scale of 1 to 5, these go to Eleven!!!
