90 Retro Breakfast Cereals

Now That's Nifty has a 3 part series featuring 90 retro breakfast Cereals, from C-3PO's and Nintendo System cereal to Nerds and Urkel O's. Check it out, part 1, part 2 and part 3.

Breakfast cereals have been popular ever since Will Keith Kellogg invented Corn Flakes. Since then, cereal has taken many forms, and become popular in many countries.

When I was little, I used to get a small mixing bowl and fill it with several kinds of cereal. I would then sit on the heater vent in the living room and feast away.

I still eat cereal sometimes before bed. Is there anything more delicious than a bowl of Cinnamon Life? Don't bother answering, the answer is "no, there is not."

I'm ashamed to admit how many of those I have had and how even at 35 I can still remember how a lot of them tasted. I am a bit disappointed they didn't have my all time favorite discontinued cereal, which was Cracker Jack Cereal. Now that was tasty stuff.

Sugary cereals were verboten in the house, but the description in the article of mixing different kinds in one bowl and sitting on the heat-vent to eat is EXACTLY what my standard M.O. was!!! (Except the vent was in the wall, so I sat beside it.)

Mr. Kris,

No deaths are necessary.

I have vague recollections of OJ's mostly him branding it. My folks weren't so keen on buying us the sweet kinds. Very occasionally we'd get something sweet, but it was usually Honey Nut Cheerios or Life.
