Breakfast Cereal from Your Childhood

What was your fav?

My cereal days--as opposed to my salad days--were about 1972 through 1979. Over that period I'd say my consistent favorite was Kellogg's Sugar Corn Pops. Hell, I don't know if they even make 'em anymore.

  1. In Jr / high school, I probably ate 2-3 bowls of Frosted Flakes most every morning.

        One summer, Golden Grahams was offering a t-shirt with a certain number of product codes. I hate to think how many boxes we ate! But...still love that cereal!

      2. Original Cheerios...the best!

        1. I used to work through Fruity Pebbles or Cocoa Pebbles just to get to the brown or pink milk at the bottom, but my absolute favorite would be Peanut Butter or regular CAPTAIN CRUNCH cereal.

          1. Cap'n Crunch, Froot Loops, Frosted Flakes, Corn Pops... lots of sugary goodness in my household growing up. I did not, however, like any cereal with marshmallows (e.g. Lucky Charms).

            Now I eat Kashi and similar organic/"healthier" brands. But I still love some Crunch or Frosted Flakes on the very rare occasions I have them. Froot Loops is pretty good too. The strange artificial fruit punch flavor and chewy texture are somehow endearing...
