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.

Yummy Mummy
http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en/thumb/8/86/150px-Yummy_Mummy.jpeg

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

Oh and the Ghostbusters cereal glowed in the Dark http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imrh0oL-aqI

Fun stuff

Ralston is alive and well. They make many of the store brand cereals in your supermarket.

Not to mention Purina chows for pets and livestock, including rabbits, cows, horses, pigs . . .

And, of course, dogs and cats.

I think Purina bought the pet food from Ralcorp and Ralcorp now is involved only in marketing private label human foods. Who knows, the cereal and dog food probably came out of the same machines

Oh and does anyone know if there is anything remotely close to tasting anything like the old Smore's Cereal? Damn that stuff was good. Here is another one that I don't think is discontinued but is sometimes hard to find...at least in my experience. Oh's! They are similar to Cheerios in the way they look but they are filled with tiny honey clusters in the center...I like to eat them as snacks! Thanks for this topic people..it brought back alot of memories!

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.

Does anyone else recall them, or have memories of cereals that are no longer being made?

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.

Oh and Alan2007 Check out my thread in the snacks section and feel free to post any other 80s food that you miss!

They haven't discontinued these...Frankenberry, Boo Berry, and Count Chocula are in every grocery store I've been to. And always has been. I've been buying it for 30 years. The only ones they discontinued were the others, like Fruity Yummy Mummy.
Once in a while you can still find Quisp. I love it!

Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Cereals, which were introduced in the 1980s. I liked the whole grain corn flakes. Now all you find in that line are the cereal bars.

I'm trying to remember the name of a rice cereal the Kellogs made in the early 90's. I know the marketing had a Japan angle. Anyway the regular was in a red box and the one with raisins was in a purple box.

Not a childhood memory , but I really liked graham chex and they quit making it.

It's odd - I only remember Rice Krispies, probably the most nutrient-empty cereal. Snap/Crackle/Pop My mom made Cream of Wheat with lots of butter and something else, Maypo?

CINNAMON KRUNCHERS (it stayed Cinnamony and Crunchy in Milk).
French Toast Crunch.

General Mills also had a Corn Flakes.

Does anyone know if Kellogg's has discontinued its Cinnamon Krunchers cereal? They are SOOOOOO good but suddenly I can't find them anywhere. similar to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but better and more sugarier.

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.
