Muffy.. that was a treat to see all those old cereals that are no longer available..

But when it comes down to it.. I still dance with my favs:

 -

Still some of the best commercials ever!

 -

I will say that seeing Donkey Kong cereal on your link brought back a few memories!

Oh and just to clarify ..

While they don't produce "New Kids On the Block" cereal anymore.. there is still the option of visiting Cindy Mancini's house on a Saturday morning where you might actually find a New Kids On the Block group member eating cereal. [Big Grin]

I'm thinking mom treated us every once in awhile.........

It was always Corn Flakes and Special K ...which I love now! haha

HAHAHAHA!!! Valley & Muffy, I love you guys!! So if one of the New Kids is to be found at my house on a Saturday morning, it's safe to assume they stayed at my house Friday night? Right? Hmmmm, you paint a beautiful picture! Now, I just have to decide which one I want...or maybe I'll collect the set.

This is weird. Today I was thinking of all of the old cereal commercials, and even posted a few on Facebook, before I even came over to the Rewind! Great minds think alike.
And btw, my hubby and I are on a retro cereal thing- yesterday I bought Fruity Pebbles and Super Sugar Crisp (now called Super Golden Crisp- you don't want to emphasize the sugar!) along with our usual Cheerios and Raisin Bran.

I can taste the Powdered Donuts cereal right now- I loved that stuff, even though I don't like powdered donuts. I hated Kaboom- my Dad bought it for us all the time too, along with another gross one- Kix!

Quite a few of these I do remember; of those I did sample, Ice Cream Cones, Pac-Man, and especially Circus Fun (whose Claymation commercials were among the best in the business) were my favorites. Looks like, though, they forgot Fruit Brute among the Monster cereals.

I've always wondered whatever became of the other 2 Cinnamon Toast Crunch bakers (Bob and Quello, I'm told). While Wendell always was my favorite, and thus I'm glad he was the one retained, it's a little strange after one was originally conditioned to all three of them plugging it together.

Great thread!

Cereals were bought for the toys inside, we didn't have as many over here. It seems that in America, you were nobody unless you had a cereal named after you: every fashion, every fad and toy had its own cereal.

Who remembers the Weeatabix gang? They're talking Weetabix biscuits...with faces!

They were a bunch of racist thugs! Maybe not... but they dressed them like skinheads for years. I miss them.
