Crispy Wheats 'n Raisins
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1979

This cereal was described on the box as "whole wheat flakes lightly coated with brown sugar and honey- with Raisins."

A 1979 magazine ad described it this way:

Hey! This Isn't Raisin Bran!
Try a bowl of Crsipy Wheats 'n Raisins.
Crisp whole wheat flakes.
Touch of honey
Fantastic flavor combination.
Your family will love it!

The back of a 1990 cereal box declared, "The sog stops here."

"Hey, soggy raisin bran eaters... you don't have to sog anymore. Crispy Wheats 'N Raisins is touched with honey and stays crisp in milk. Just one taste of Crispy Wheats 'N Raisins and you'll know why the sog stops here!"

Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

Why General Mills stopped producing this cereal is beyond me! Probably all about money. It was the only raisin bran cereal I could eat, one of only two cereals total, and I haven't found one to compare to it yet.

What pencil pusher decided to do away with the one of the best cereals ever. Had to be something dealing with economics. Bottom line is bring it back.

I absolutely loved this cereal - great taste and never soggy - I can't believe it's been discontinued - sad.

This cereal was so addicting... It was my favorite during the 1980s... The crisp flakes, the touch of honey and those fat raisins... perfection. I can't believe they discontinued it. :-(. I wish GM would bring it back just as it was!

This was the ONLY raisin cereal where the raisins weren't dipped in sugar... it was awesome!

This was the best cereal on the market for many years. Why was it removed? We would like to know.
