Cinnamon Toast Crunch
From: General Mills
Introduced in 1984


When it was introduced, this cereal was described on the box as "a crispy, sweetened 2-grain cereal - tastes like cinnamon toast!"

One very early box of the cereal described itself like this:

"Wake up to the delicious taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch... Start your morning with the delicious taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It's a fun way to enjoy the taste of cinnamon toast in crispy toasted squares of cereal. It even looks like little pieces of cinnamon toast. Enjoy some today!"

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

Love it... but, let's be serious: the Chocolate cinnamon variety is what they should have been making from Day 1. ;-)

The best cereal ever - one of my favorites. I agree they took an ingredient out of it.

This is my ultimate favorite cereal! I always drank the milk at the end, which is really saying something because I didn't really like milk. Now that I'm all grown up, I still drink the milk and on special occasions have an adult version which is the Cinnamon Toast Crunch shot that has rumchata and fireball whiskey and tastes exactly like the cereal :)

Sadly, not as godly as it used to be. They stopped using coconut oil in it a couple years ago and it made a noticeable difference in both the flavor and texture. Formerly my all-time #1, but now often surpassed by the generic knock-offs of it. Interestingly, the new chocolate toast crunch does have coconut oil in it - and has the lighter texture regular CTC used to have.

Best cereal ever! I was in the test market in Georgia before it hit the shelves. I will never forget eating it for the first time. It was heaven! Or course when it came out in the stores my Mom would never buy it. Guess because I liked it so much she figured it wasn't healthy. Haha.

Thank you God for allowing this small piece of heaven to remain on the shelves in spite of all the worry of too much sugar in breakfast cereals. Even though the other bakers have disappeared like the other Jackson Five members, Wendell holds it down as the Michael Jackson of Cereal characters. Hang in there Wendell... you see what GM did to the Cookie Crisp mascots!

I knew it. There were 4 bakers at one time. They later added Wendal, the crazy one who tried to eat all the cereal.
