I DO! I DO! I'd forgotten about Jets until you mentioned them-- Thanks! I remember liking them a lot. I only remember them in the round, Kix shape. I feel like they tasted pretty much like Kix, but had a sugar coating, and more of a caramel-flavor than straight sugar taste. (I think my family made our Dentist a wealthy man... )

Quisp is still around in some places (and available online), not so his nemesis Quake. I remember the great Jay Ward commercials where they fought over whose cereal was better - I recall they were shaped differently but tasted the same. Quake disappeared soon after a makeover that changed him from a hulking miner to a thinner guy with an Aussie bush hat and a little cape. I still can't figure that out...

Just as I remembered too- Capn Crunch as little saucers that dont destroy your soft palate! I picked up like six boxes!!! Someone else mustve found out too - its now all gone!

My kids loved Team Flakes! It's too bad they don't make them anymore.


A friend of mine once laughed at me because the only sugary cereal I'd buy for my kids was Alphabits. She asked why I bought those and I told her because the kids could spell with them. She just laughed and said, 'you're the only person I'd know who'd buy a cereal because it was educational!'

My kids were allowed sugary cereal when they went to their grandparents (as if I could have stopped that happening!) and on vacation. They weren't deprived!

You seemed a bit confused about the term getting trolled...

Trolling is a concept usually involving attempting to get some entity to do something that is not in its own best interest. Perhaps stemming from mythical encounters with unseemly characters known as Trolls in the habit of enticing passersby to, for instance, cross a bridge, at their presumed peril, under the alleged control or spell (curse) of a Troll.

An Internet troll makes comments intended to induce an angry response.

I don't think the term really applies here...

Getting back on topic,
QUISP was a re-use of a Jay Ward character who appeared with a moustached cohort in a BULLWINKLE cartoon. The only alteration was the propeller antenna atop his head.
I don't tremember the plot but I do recall their raygun was called a SQUOOSH GUN. Half a decade later, Quisp was still holdong onto his fearsome Squoosh Gun.

It would be interesting to categorize cereals by their recipes. For example, Captain Crunch, Quisp, Quake, and Addams Family were all the same batter in different shapes.

I remember a cereal called OJs. Kelloggs made this and they came out in 1985. Actually they came out around the same time when Kelloggs first started making those Rice Krispees Bars.

OJs had an orange flavor and even made the milk taste like orange. I still remember the cartoon TV ads featuring "Orange Juice Jones".

Ojs didn't last though, I think they were gone by the time I graduated from high school in 1986.

Does anybody remember Concentrate cereal made by Kellogg's? This was my favorite cereal in the 60's and 70's and then they stopped making it. It came in a very small box with gold foil on the outside and had a metal pouring spout on the side. It had sort of a wheat germ flavor but much better tasting. You didn't need to eat a lot of it to be satisfied. I contacted Kellogg's a couple of years ago but they told me that they had stopped making it. I really miss this wonderful cereal.

Quake's cereal had orange kangaroos (that tasted like Tang on Cheerios) that sorta figured in the series of commercials. I loved the cross country race Quisp and Simon (the kangaroo character, maybe it was quangaroo) had, "From Long Island to Lompoc (neither of which I ever heard of at the time, but of course I made it a point to get to Lompoc, CA while in the Navy)", where Quake tried unsuccessfully to postpone the beginning to give them their maps. Stuff tasted pretty funky, even for a pre-teen I was in the sixties, but the commercials were better than other Saturday fare.

On the subject of brazen shilling, does anyone else remember the Post cartoon show that gave the world Sugar Bear, as well as Linus the Lion Hearted (of Crispy Critter fame), and the Postman who shilled Alpha Bits?

In an attempt to get the theme song of that show out of my sub concious, I'm posting the lyrics, at least as I remember them:

Roar Roar Roar ROAR
Linus the Lion Hearted
Roar Roar Roar ROAR
Linus the Lion Hearted
Linus is the one
Who loads up the fun
He's the host who is the most!
So Roar Roar Roar ROAR
Linus the Lion HEARTED!

How about Sugar Bear's nemesis, the Blob, or Cap'n Crunch's Jean la Feet, the barefoot pirate (who made a not bad tasting twist on Cap'n Crunch when "he" added Cinnamon. I remember commercials of him trying to hog all his cereal from us kids, screaming, "It's MINE! MINE!" He would then smash into a live Ray Nitschke [betcha know where I live!], and then say, with obvious contrition, "but I'll SHARE.")

How about BOO-Berries, who would intervene in arguments with Franken-Berry and Count Chocula over who's cereal was better, often with a resounding "BOOO" and whispered "berries".

That show was a casualty of the government's cracking down on kid's tv that blurred the line between shows and commercials. That show didn't just blur the line, it stomped it to pieces and buried it - too bad it was such a good show. It also featured cornflake mascot Rory Raccoon - and my favorite, his cousin Zeke the Raclown!

My favorite commercial Jay Ward did was a Cap'n Crunch ad parodying the Timex torture test ads of the time - they drained Lake Michigan and refilled it with milk, then lowered the Cap'n's ship in with the Cap'n tied to the rudder, holding his cereal. The test was a success, the cereal stayed crunchy, but the Cap'n observed "I'm gonna have to get a milk-proof watch!"

I am not so sure I would order that website. How do I know the stuff is fresh?! Just read this description:

"That 60's icon is back! After a well-publicized battle with Quake in 1972, Quisp proliferated while Quake was sent back to outer space. Supplies dwindled in the 70's and 80's (possibly due to disco), but gradually returned in limited production in 1987. Pour yourself a bowl and enjoy!"

Does that mean his stock was from the 1987 batch?!

I would like NERDS cereal to be remade. I loved it!

What a fun thread! I hadn't seen it before. Team flakes -- those were delicious; I wonder why they were discontinued? And every time I hear "Sugar Sugar" by the Archies on oldies stations I remember cutting out those vinyl records off the cereal boxes and actually playing them on my sister's little record player!

All of my life, my father ate Kellogg's cornflakes for breakfast. Every single day. Then around 1979 or 1980 Kellogg's came out with a healthy cereal called "Most." I think it was promoted as having Vitamin E in it. I bought some while I was home from college and my dad tried it. Much to the astonishment of our entire family, he switched! Alas, the cereal didn't last long, and he went back to corn flakes for decades more, until a few years ago when he switched to oatmeal.

Chris Bohjalian of the Burlington Free Press wrote a column several months ago about the epic battle between Quisp and Quake. Apparently kids could vote for who they preferred. Maybe Quisp won and that is why Quake has not re-appeared? Which reminds me of a time when we got to vote on whether the "Silly Rabbit" would be permitted to actually taste Trix cereal.

Quake had a kangaroo named Simon as a mascot for about a year, but the cereal was putrid even to this (then) kid pallet, so it didn't last. There was a campaign to save Quake that kids could vote on by mailing their votes on ballots printed on, what else, the back of cereal boxes. After Quake "won", he promised us a surprise, and this was it. One funny sequence of commercials was Quisp and Simon having a cross country race (from "Long Island to Lompoc") on scooters to prove who was better, and Quake failing to delay the start of the race because, "You forgot your MAPS!" The sequels showed each ridiculously off course, and the race ended up a tie. Quake and Simon were gone by then in my area as cereal, though.

Malt-O-Meal makes a pretty good knock off of mini-wheats. I bought an 11 oz box of vanilla ones for 50 cents at Woodman's in Pleasant Prarie, WI, just north of the Cheddar Curtain (IL-WI state line) on I-94, east of the actual expressway (I know I-94 runs east and west, but not in Wisconsin, until you get to Milwaukee County, about 50 miles north of the state line), and bought half a dozen more the next day. Same goes for brown sugar ones, but I don't remember cinnamon in them. They were still pretty good, though. An 11 oz box gave us three decent bowls, too, as opposed to paying 39 cents for a one oz box of whatever got opened in the warehouse.

Not GONE, but changed forever: Special K. When I was young and thin, we always had Special K around. My mom picked out all the cereals - so we seldom ate presweetened cereals except daddy's favorite, Cap'n Crunch and that wasn't very often. All my growing up years, Special K was smallish, slighly cupped flakes that were fairly uniform in size. Several years ago they "improved" Special K and I hate the way it tastes now. I miss the old stuff. Sigh...

Team Flakes used to be one of my favorite cereals, I think the last time I ate it was in the 1980's.

About 7 or 8 years ago, I read on the Internet that it was still being sold in Canada in the 1990's but had been discontinued by the year 2000.

Aopparently Nabisco sold all their cereal products to some other company (can't remember who) and they decided to continue all the varieties except one, TEAM FLAKES!

I also can't believe that I've never found a picture of the box of TEAM flakes on the Internet. All sorts of other obscure, odd boxes, but no TEAM flakes.

I can't recall one because all my favorite still exists until today.
