That sounds like Quaker Corn Bran. It had a scarecrow as its spokesperson. Not sure if it's around anymore. For a bran (yuck!) cereal, corn bran actually tasted good.


back in the early 60s there was another version of Country Corn Flakes.

A majority have movie tie-ins and were limited editions or ran a short time while they were Fads. Most came from Ralston,which is out of business. I remember each and every single cereal on here.

Also this should take any 80s kid back in time.-- Wall Walkers that came with Corn Pops: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuZ3g5S33jQ

I do remember that Smores cereal. I'm wondering if you could just make your own. I figure you could toss in some chocolate bits and mini marshmallows with Golden Grams. I assume they still make Golden Grams.

Hey Robearjr..I guess I could do that..although I was at Walmart a few days ago and I saw something called Smores cereal but it didn't look like it had the golden grahams type "flakes" if you want to call them that..I am a bit intrigued but I don't know if I'll actually try it.

I also remember Country Corn Flakes and that I liked them better than Kellogg's...they stayed crispier in milk. As I recall, that was because they had a bit of rice mixed in with the corn. A good product that didn't catch on.

I remember TEAM Flakes. (RICE WHEAT CORN OATS) That was the best cereal ever made. I miss them. Why is it that a healthy, great tasting cereal is no longer around but stuff like special K that taste like cardboard is? My mom gave me coupons for Team Flakes and I save them because I remember growing up on them and that they tasted great and didnt realize that that was a HEALTH Cereal and I loved them. REMEMBER on the back of the box how it spelled TEAM and in each letter it had a picture of Rice in the T , Wheat in the E , Corn in the A , and Oats in the M in that Orange Box?

"kellloggggggggggggggggs sugar corn pops...sugar pops are TOPS!"

"and Twinkles only smiled.." sigh yep the good old days,, which explains having 6 abcessed teeth pulled in first grade..

When my kids were little I taught them that they could have any cereal they wanted as long as the number was below 13 (I think) which pretty much meant Cheerios.. I used to explain there was "growing food, and garbage food, and I wanted them to eat growing food because I loved them." One day we were in the cereal aisle and my 6 year old watched in horror as a woman threw several boxes of highly sweetened cereal into her cart.. With the piercing voice of only a 6 year old, Elisabeth plaintively said.."Oh Mommy doesnt that woman love her children?? shes giving them GARBAGE cereal!!"

I wanted the floor to swallow me up..

But Here I am 25 years later giving the kids cheerios, and Life cereal.

Quisp story of the year:

We have a supermarket in town that is based in NEPA - Redner's Warehouse Markets. They are a low-ball operation that is one of those that claims that it is 'employee owned'. They are actually real good, have dirt cheap prices -without the intrusion of a 'card'! A few weeks ago, they had in their flier hidden away in a corner, the following special: QUISP..at 2/$5! Naturally. I RAN down there the first chance I got. Getting there, I literally searched inever cor ner of the store - no Quisp! I was p**ssed! I literally ran home, and got right online and wrote a nasty, nasty email -one of those that is supposedly 'to the president', blah, blah...WELL - not more than an hour later I got a phone call from the local store mananger - he was VERY apologetic, and said it was a vendor problem, they would take care of it, and that I should have a couple of boxes very soon, etc, etc..

Flash forward a couple of weeks - I had sort of semi forgotten about the whole thing, when Tom the store manager called again - my Quisp was in!! I ran back down there, and stopped at the service desk, thinking they had just imported a couple of boxes for me. Instead, they girl directs me to the end of one aisle where...THEY HAD A WHOLE DAMN DISPLAY OF THE STUFF!! Cool Quaker display case and all (wis now I had brought a camera!). I immediately bought three boxes!

It was the first time Mom had to throw out a barely-touched box of cereal.



The correct name was Grins Smiles Giggles & Laughs -- and I still have a prize from that cereal: a little plastic walking toy, featuring one of the characters. Also, I had a suitemate in college who would pour his Ice Cream Jones (miniature ice-cream scoops and cones) cereal in my Corn Bran as a joke. I used to love Waffleo's (and the commercial with the cartoon cowboy rounding up the "li'l blueberry critters"), but my favorite, to this day, is Fruity Pebbles -- the most artificially tasting fruit flavors available on the market!

Hey,I saw frankenberry,Count Chocula and BooBerry at the Walmart here in Schertz.I guess Post or kellogs brought them back for Halloween. I have seen Quisp,the cereal with the alien on it at the SuperTarget on Loop1604 and Blanco Road in San Antonio.
Annpeeples,you can find Wolf Brand Chili all over this part of Texas with no problem.
Wish Kool_aid would bring back their Rootbeer mix they had back in the 1970s and 80s,which they later dropped.Keebler's made back in the 1980s some flour tortilla chips which were good,but quit making.
As far as cereals go,there are still some that are being made,but might only be sold in local regions . Just saw at Walmart and H.E.B.Grocerystore a new Kellog's one called La Lecheria,which has a milkmaid on the box and I assume in spanish refers to the fact it has lots of milk in it.See alot of that in this area due to the high hispanic population.Whether one could find it in say Chicago or DeMoines is another matter.

    I know this message was from several years ago, but I just found this site. I wanted to respond to a couple of points, being a Triple Snack fan for over 50 years. It was first produced when I was in junior high & my sister one year younger, and we both loved it! It did come in the big regular size box, not only the snack pack size.
    That tour guide had the right years, but he was wrong about the cereal only being test-marketed in the Northeast US. I have grown up in central California where it was sold during those years. I remembered the jingle, too--sang it to my kids when they were young & told them about the cereal. I even made some for them a couple of times-a mix of Corn Pops, Honey Smacks & peanuts. Still just as good as I remembered! Hmmm. . .I should make some for the grandkids & sing them the song. The fun never stops!
jockey52 

Bet none of you remember Triple Snack !

Only breakfast cereal I ever really enjoyed - it was a Kellog product and came in those single serving boxes, an assortment of which was on every table at my summer camp breakfast in Vermont.
It was a combination of sugar pops, sugar puffs (latter was dark and wheaty tasting unlike the pops which were light yellow and sugary - each was sold as a separate cereal back then) and peanuts !

When I visited the plant in Battle Creek late-80's and asked about this product during a pre-tour question period, my friends groaned as I disputed the guide's assertion that no such product had ever been produced. At the end of the plant portion of the tour, however, the guide made an announcement/correction: apparently the cereal was test marketed in the NE US only in 1963-64, then discontinued.

Anyway, a nice memory !

As a very young boy in the 1960s and early 70s, I was a Quisp-o-holic.  Once a day everyday, sometimes twice as a snack after school.  It went away for quite some time but Quaker Oats brought it back as an online product only.  'Tain't cheap though.

I remember liking Team flakes. Better, though, was the 4-cereal line of single-grain flaked cereals: wheat, corn, rye, or barley. I LOVED the barley flakes, and literally nobody else makes a similar cereal. They had a deep crackly crunch to them, not fragile.

As a child, it was a black, black, day for me when my mother trimmed an article from the paper which listed cereals which contained low levels of sugar. We did most of our shopping at a neighborhood store down the street and we were only allowed to buy cereals which were listed in that article. AAAAAAAAAArgh" /> We could not get around that list. Mother gave us the shopping lists and money and was waiting when we got home. We didn't get enough allowance to buy cereal on our own. If we bought a cereal that wasn't on the list, we had to take it straight back to the store. I remember studying the KABOOM box. I think it maybe just barely was acceptable under the rules. Now, I study package labels, because I'm diabetic, and am horrified at the sugar count in so many cereals. I can hardly believe they are meant to be eaten in quantity daily. Maybe as a treat or a snack. I bought some cocoa puffs a couple of years ago as a snack. Just to see what they were like. Woof! I couldn't eat them. They were sweeter than some cookies I have eaten.  " />

Weetbix is a good according to most health reports and also other cereals that have a total content of 15% or less. Some cereals that contain as much as 20% total sugars and even you are better off without as the total sugars content is too high. www.samiscafeteria.com
