Do you remember a favorite cereal that they no longer produce?

Do you think they would taste the same to you now as they did then?

I miss Puffa Puffa Rice something fierce. It's been over 45 years, but I still think I remember the flavor and crackle like it was yesterday.

?zz=1

Then there's Buc Wheats. This was my father's favorite cereal at the time. Why this is no longer a thing is a mystery to me.




And this one was absolutely craven. I'd pay good money to bring this cereal back for one month.




If you could resurrect one favorite cereal from your past, which would it be?

1. Wow, a 7 cent coupon inside the Buc Wheats box!

I haven't thought of those in years. I remember I liked them, though.

14. Also a favorite!

Just the right amount of sweetening. Or maybe way too much. I have no way of ever knowing which one.

I was really pissed off when they dumped Quisp and kept Quake. Quisp was clearly the better cereal.

No way would they taste the same now - NONE of the cereals I eat now are the same as they used to be. Some are completely different, like Special K.

21. You beat me to it. The best flake cereal since all the others instantly turn soggy

in milk. Team Flakes were thicker and didn't absorb milk like the other tissue paper-type flakes.

Going off on a tangent, there's a webcomic called Breakfast of the Gods that is essentially a Watchmen-like story played out by classic cereal mascots.

19. Post Fortified Oat Flakes

Soooo good and healthy too. Had a unique malt-y taste. My mom liked it too so we never had to beg for it. Was hoping they’d bring it back during the oat bran fad but no. People have written and begged Post to bring it back.

44. Rice Krinkles. It had a very racist box, though.

The cereal was good, basically frosted Rice Krispies, but better tasting. I won't show the box because it's offensive.
