Breakfast Cereal

Nothing was more important on a Saturday morning than the Cartoon Line-up and a giant bowl of sugar cereal. Take a trip back in time and see if it sparks a memory or two of one of your favorite children’s cereals.  Some might still come back, and yet, some were pretty dangerous as kids to be consuming. Oh and remember the great toys at the bottom of the box? Even a memory of a cardboard record featuring the Jackson 5 or the Archies? Check out a full list of discontinued cereals here.

  • Freakies Cereal

    Freakies is my all-time favorite cereal to watch Bugs Bunny too. The Freakies had seven characters: BossMoss, Snorkledorf, Hamhose, Grumble, Cowmumble, Gargle, and Goody Goody. Once I ate enough cereal to collect all seven. BossMoss is the only magnet that survived.

  • Scooby-Doo Cereal

    This cereal was introduced by Kellogg’s in early 2013. It was described on the front of the box as a “crispy-lightly-sweetened-vanilla flavored”. Not too bad of a taste and cool prizes at the bottom of the box!

  • Super Sugar Crisp

    “Sugar Sugar” sounded sweet off a box of Super Sugar Crisp.
    At one time all the cereal companies started putting bands on the back of a box of cereal. A steady hand would cut the cardboard circle out and you could play the song on any turntable at 33 1/3 rpm. Other bands included the Archies and the Monkees. 

  • King Vitamin

    My mother bought this cereal all the time. “Have breakfast with the King,” she would say to me. The only vitamin in the cereal was Vitamin A at the time pushed the story it was good for you. Remember the 10 essential vitamins that are good for you? Topping at 6 grams of sugar wasn’t bad next to Captain Crunch which has 13 grams.

  • Dunkin Doughnuts Cereal

    Yes, it’s true, “Dunkin’ Donuts cereal.” Dunkin’ Donuts cereal was sold in two flavors: glazed and chocolate. The cereal itself came in three shapes and was made of puffed corn. Despite looking delicious, and boasting of having 10 mg of caffeine. Sounded good at the time but just didn’t catch on. 

  • Little Chocolate Doughnuts (Not a real cereal but it's funny as hell)
