It’s been awhile, let’s get going…
The Addams Family (Ralston, 1991)
Another licensed cereal from Ralston, this one was tieing into the first Addams Family movie. The cereal actually looks pretty cool with all those skulls. The cereal had a pretty cool giveaway – flashlights in the shape of Fester, Cousin It, Thing and Lurch. Not sure how this one tastes, I don’t remember ever having any but I do remember seeing it at dollar stores. That’s where all Ralston cereals go. In fact, I bet I could go to the local dollar shop today and find a box.
Cabbage Patch Kids (Ralston, 1985)
The selling point for this cereal was that it was low in sugar. Even though I would have been turning four years old that year, I seem to have memories of eating this. Not exactly sure of the taste, but it seems like it may be like Kix. There was a number of different boxes for this cereal featuring photographed Cabbage Patch Kids in action. I remember the commercial too.
Dino Pebbles (Post, late 1980s)
On the other end of the spectrum from low sugar Cabbage Patch Kids cereal, supposedly, this particular cereal had move marshmallows per box than any other cereal. Sounds like a winner to me! I know I had it at one point or another but I’ve never been a big fan of the Pebbles cereals, so I didn’t eat it much.
