Trying out some old cereals lately, any suggestions for some Sugar-Fueled, nostalgia-riddled flashbacks?

Fruity Pebbles! Other than the waxy paste the builds up on the roof of your mouth, this stuff is awesome.

Lucky Charms are purely nostalgic for me, one of the few 'sweet' cereals I was allowed.

I still eat Golden Grahams.

Every once in a while I'll get fruty pebbles or cap'n cruch (Crunch berrys FTW) and demolish the box in a 5 or so days... my wife hates that.

Older cereals I loved as a kid

Marshmallow Rice Krispies

Ghostbusters Cereal

ALSO not cereal... but I really wish they'd bring back watermelon pop-tarts... I LOVED those... The jerks have 15 varieties of strawberry but a guy can't get any watermelon love... We, the Hitchhikers.

Lucky Charms and Super Sugar Crisp. Only my nanny would buy them for me and I wasn't allowed to tell my parents I ate it.

What I'd give for a box of these suckers!

Also, not sure if these are still around, I thought they were pretty decent:

Freakies, but they would be very stale.

Taste like captain crunch, we sing the jingle all the time still & I have 2 sets of magnets.

So old, so very very old...sigh.

I remember when Captian Crunch was just a Ensign

Quisp is one of my old time favorites. It also may have only been regional and not nationwide.

They should bring back Mr. T cereal or Smurfs cereal. Those were awesome.

With the new Smurfs movie, I'd expect to see a cereal...but it might not be the same.

That's funny. I was the youngest of 4, so when my mom bought the variety packs, all the good sweet cereals would be gone before I got my pick. I found myself developing a taste for Product 19, Special K and 40% Bran Flakes at an early age.

I was a big fan of the FrankenBerry,
not so much the Count Chocula,
or the BooBerry
which had a bit of a chemical flavor.
After a while, my all time fave was Apple Jacks.

College was an orgy of Sugar Smacks or Super Sugar Crisp (before they renamed them with "honey")...due to...um...yeah.

move along

My favorite growing up were these sugary, bad boys:





Whenever I'm in America I eat Froot Loops. Gotta love the loops. (what the flip is a lemonberry though?)

Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

"If I buy a box of Cinnaomon Toast Crunch at three in the afternoon, that box ain't making it to 10 AM." I concur Mike Birbiglia.

Sugar Pops.
Of course that is not what they are called now.

I think Sugar Smacks are still around. Might be called honey smacks.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.

I want the crappy things that used to be inside - little bits of nothings, but I thought they were treasures.
