This Rice Krispies knockoff featured three bears on the box. They appear to be a Papa Bear, a Momma Bear and a Baby Bear. We know the cereal existed in 1988.
The side panel of one box included a recipe for an Ice Cream Cone Pie. Here's the recipe as written on the box:
Ice Cream Cone Pie
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
- 3 cups Ralston Crispy Rice cereal
- 1 quart vanilla or butterscotch ice-cream
- ice cream topping
Butter 9-inch pie plate. In medium saucepan over low heat, combine corn syrup, sugar and butter. Cook, stirring constantly, just until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Gradually, add cereal, stirring until all pieces are evenly coated. Press evenly into bottom and sides of pie plate. Chill 20 minutes or until set. Just before serving, fill with scoops of ice cream. Serve with topping.
Makes 1 (9-inch) pie.
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"...

I received a box of Ralston's Crispy Rice cereal in a food box and really liked it but can't find it in any store locally. Where can I buy it? I live in Metairie, Louisiana. Zip code is 70001.
