Kiddo Cereal Nostalgia

I was never a huge cereal wolfer as a li'l spark, but there were a few sickly sweet cereals from the 70s I loved.
Honeycombs (even though each piece was bigger than my mouth and had the texture of an arrowhead)
What were your favorites to pound down while watching Fat Albert, Scoobie Doo and the Hudson Brothers?
I wasn't allowed to have "sugar" cereal most of the time, but when I could it was alway Lucky Charms. Something about those styrofoam marshmallows and sugar glazed cereal kernels. I also remember a box of Rainbow Brite cereal my mom brought home from work (some sort of promotion). Tasted like fruit loops, and I knew I had dessert every night after dinner till the box was gone.
Cap'n Crunch, plain and peanut butter
Sugar Corn Pops
Puffa Puffa Rice
Kix counted as a sweet cereal- just put a ton of sugar on it.
Being a good twenty years older than you, we had the really heavy sugared cereals in the 50s:
Sugar Smacks-my absolute favorite
Sugar Crisp-best in chocolate milk
