The Most Important Meal of the Day

It's not (necessarily) the cereals in this retrospective of kid's cereals that's fun for me. It's the toys. I swear, I remember just about every single one. Even (especially!) the Nautilus. You had to put weird pills in it to make it work!
eMail this entry!
I remember them too...my sister liked Quisp, and of course I liked Quake. Neither of us realizing of course that they were basically Cap'n Crunch in different shapes, in a different box. And of course being a Kraut, I had to get Baron von Redberry!
But yeh, it was the toys inside that made us nag the hell out of my mom until she caved. Of course, i was easily bribed to shut up with a box of animal cookies. Mom wasn't a fool. :-)
Hell, even I remember about half of those. The C-3POs were Alphabits with a different shape, IIRC.
Honestly, I don't think I ate many of those. Rice Krispies, Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, Honeycomb, Alphabits, Corn Flakes (yech), and Sugar Smacks pretty much was all I ate.
