    Favorite Cereal Discontinued?

    Has anyone ever had their favorite cereal discontinued?

    Kellogg's has done it to me twice now. First, they got rid of Nut 'n' Honey Crunch (which was different from their current Toasted Honey Crunch), and now they've replaced their Cran-Vanilla Crunch, which I found to be the greatest cereal ever invented, in favor of Caramel Nut Crunch. Why do they do this to me?

    Team Flakes. I think I only liked them because they printed baseball cards on the back of the box in the early 70's. I'm a Wheaties fan. Wheaties with sliced banana's. Love 'em.

    I remember Kelloggs being promoted by Hanna Barbera characters alot.







    We took a family vacation one summer up to Michigan and while there stopped in Battle Creek and did a tour of the Kelloggs plant. Quite interesting. Then afterwards they gave everyone one of those "snack packs" with all the little boxes of cereal. I remember us kids complaining because the packs had stuff like Special K, Product 19, etc. (Blah!) ...... and we wanted the good stuff, like Fruit Loops and Apple Jacks!

    Others I remember....




    They're still around, but as a kid I loved "I want my" Maypo!

    Not discontinued, but ridiculously hard to find are Frankenberry and Boo-berry.

    Very few places carry it across the whole country. You can order Boo Berry off Amazon.com, but only in cases of 6.

    Target and Super-Walmarts carry them (my guess is that with General Mills HQ and Target HQ in Minneapolis they made some mephistophelan deal). My vote is for Whole Foods house brand made the best whole grain flakes - until they changed the product and the ingredients in 2006 - and they were under $2.00. I have yet to find a suitable replacement.

    You can still find Quisp now and then.

    Off topic: I can't believe how small some of the cereal boxes are getting.

    We weren't allowed to have sugar cereals when I was a kid. My grandmother used to get Freakies for me when I visited.

    Homer's Cinnamon Donut Cereal.



    I bought two boxes, one to eat and one to save. The cereal was actually very, very tasty.

    I've been kicking around the name in my brain for months, and cannot recall it.
    I remember getting it in the late '70s, early '80s - it was a bran flake cereal almost literally drowned in maple syrup - I want to say the name was Maple Syrup Crunch, but I am not sure if that is right. I do remember it coming in a dark brownish box.

    I seem to remember this bran-flakey goodness with a nice maple syrup glaze.

    Pac-Man Cereal
    Basically, it was a lightly frosted KIX like cereal with Pac-Man and ghost marshmellows.
