Cozmic Crunch (Cap'n Crunch)
From: Quaker
Introduced in 1999

This limited edition cereal featured "fruity planets and stars and orange space dust that turns the milk green". The "space dust" came in a packet enclosed in the cereal and was intended to be sprinkled over the cereal and milk.

An article in the October 26, 1998 issue of Brandweek described Cosmic Crunch:

Quaker Oats is launching a limited-time extension of the brand called Cosmic Crunch that plays off a space theme with the fruit flavored corn and oat cereal pieces in the shape of moons, stars and planets, and packets of orange magic space dust that turns milk a sweet alien green...

...Packaging for Cosmic Crunch is flagged "Limited Time Only" and highlights the product's play appeal to its 6-to-12 demo with a back-panel cartoon storyline of what happens when a kid pours on dust and his milk and teeth turn green.

We're not sure if the misspelling of Cozmic Crunch in the Brandweek article was a mistake or if Quaker changed the name of the cereal between the the time of the article and the launch.

The cereal officially launched in January of 1999.

    Quaker needs to bring back all of their 80s and 90s cereals. I think it would greatly surprise them how much they would sell and just how many people would freak out with excitement. We ate all these cereals as children and want to allow our kids, and other little ones in the family to be able to as well, and yes all of us 80s and 90s kids want to eat it again too! BRING ALL OF THEM BACK!

    This is actually re-marketed a bit for the Halloween season, basically the same only minus the berries but no real difference.
