Cereal can bring back all kinds of memories. One that I crave to this day is "Sir Grapefellow" cereal. It wasn't around very long, but I haven't found anything like it since. You can probably still hear some of the commercial jingles from breakfast cereals of your childhood playing in your head. Breakfast has changed a lot over the years and now parents pay more attention to fiber and whole grains, but back in the good old days kids got to pour sugary, fun cereal in bowls and call it a balanced breakfast. I caught this story in The Daily Meal and memories flooded in of some of the greatest cereals of all time that we wish would make a comeback!
- Berry Lucky Charms- There have been many forms of Lucky Charms over the years, but this beloved berry-flavored one, that debuted in 2006, will probably never be seen again.
- Chocolate Honeycomb- Post took their cereal that looks like honeycombs and is made with real honey to the next level with this chocolatey version, but it barely lasted the year when it hit stores in 2006.
- Circus Fun- It was a short-lived ‘80s cereal with marshmallows shaped like lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!) and not a scary clown on the box. And at one point, it even came with Life Savers candy as a prize.
- Crazy Cow- This 1970s breakfast cereal came in both strawberry and chocolate flavors and was actually just regular Kix cereal coated with powdery sugar that would dissolve in milk, leaving it pink or brown.
- Dino Pebbles- “The Flintstones” are still on cereal boxes today, but this Dino version had colorful dinosaur-shaped marshmallows and we haven’t seen it since the early ‘90s.
- Ice Cream Cones Cereal- The “scoops” were a mix of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla-flavored puffs and the “cones” were crunchy Chex-like pieces. Kids probably loved it, but it hit shelves in 1987 and disappeared the same year.
- Peanut Butter Toast Crunch- People still love this cereal so much, there’s currently an online petition out there demanding General Mills bring back this fan favorite.
- Sir Grapefellow -There aren’t many grape-flavored cereals, but back in the ‘70s, there was this one that had a World War I-era British pilot as its mascot. His arch nemesis was Baron von Redberry, who also had his own cereal.
- S’mores Crunch- S’mores for breakfast? Sure, back in 1982 it seemed like a great idea to give kids super-sweet chocolate-coated graham cracker pieces with marshmallows to start their day.
