Cereals That Have Gone To The Big Breakfast Bowl In The Sky

March 30, 2011

All month long there have been some pretty upsetting rumors that Quaker Oats will be retiring the Cap’n Crunch cereal brand for good. This caused me great distress, because the brand is steeped in nostalgia for me.

In my household, we were only allowed to have sugary cereal one time a week. I lived for Saturday mornings. Not only did I get to mainline pure sugar, but cartoons were on. That’s right, back in the old days the only time you could watch cartoons was on Saturday mornings. There were even prime-time specials on each of the networks touting their new fall lineups of Saturday morning toons.

Every Saturday I would haul out my owl sleeping bag, lay it out on our orange shag carpet, and pour myself a ginormous bowl of Cap’n Crunch with crunchberries. I picked out all the crunchberries and put them in a pile to eat last so I got the double dose of sugar and food dye. It was bliss.

Damn kids are so spoiled nowadays. Sponge Bob clogs the digital signals 24/7, there is no waiting with bated breath for Saturday to arrive. They just turn on the damn television, and cartoons magically appear.

At any rate, this list of 54 cereals that are no longer with us (RIP, Super Golden Crisps) made me smile, and I hope you have fun perusing the list as well. My favorites on the list? ET cereal and Urkel-Os.  How about you?

    So Funny to remember Saturday mornings. Sugar, shag carpet and any cartoon by Hanna-Barbera. Good times!

    This article was magically delicious. Luckily, us folks in Canada still have Super Golden Crisps…but it’s called Sugar Crisp. It couldn’t be named anymore unhealthy. However, the one Canadian cereal that’s gone that I loved was called Pro-Stars. A sports themed cereal put out by Post (I think) that featured Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan and Bo Jackson.

    Seeing Mr. T cereal (my love for it was based solely on Pee Wee Herman’s enthusiasm for it, ‘I pity the fool who eats my cereal!’) and Donutz brought on pangs of yearning for me. I am also saddened that Croonchy Stars (Swedish Chef!) existed and I never once tasted it…
    I wallow in heartbreak and regret.
