Cap'n Crunch & Friends Cereal Family

Cap'n Crunch was created in response to early 1960's market research that revealed kids under 10 preferred crunchy foods to soggy foods.

Some 50 year later, the blue-suited captain with a "C" on his hat still appears on boxes of Cap'n Crunch cereal. At least 25 spin-off cereals have been created between 1963 and 2013 - some more successful than other, but everyone featured Cap'n Crunch as a character on the box (except for Mystery Crunch and few boxes during campaigns where kid's were supposed to guess why the Cap'n wasn't on the box).
