Thursday Thirteen - Cereals Gone By

Thirteen Cereals I Loved As a Child

Yes, this list is stupid and ridiculous but it brings back such happy memories for me. *sigh* Not sure if some of these still exist.

  1. Cookie Crisp. Oh, so like real cookies! Chocolate chips, too!

  2. Donuts. These were SO good. Looked and tasted like little powdered sugar donuts!

  3. Cocoa Pebbles. Yabba Dabba Doo, people! Bonus: chocolate milk to drink after you ate the cereal. FYI: Cocoa Krispies didn't have as much chocolate.

  4. Life. Who didn't like Mikey? Who didn't want to eat a bowl of Life just to show their older brother they were better than him?

  5. Sugar Smacks. Oh yeah, pure sugar goodness with a touch of honey. And wasn't there some ridiculous frog?

  6. Lucky Charms. Before they added all the other colors like chartreuse, puce, and magenta. And didn't they add warlocks and trolls, too?

  7. Honeycombs. Honeycomb's big, yeah, yeah, yeah; it's not small, no, no, no. What? Are those the stupidest lyrics ever? Yet, what kid didn't go around singing them, come on, admit it!

  8. AlphaBits. Who didn't make their name from the letters?

  9. Boo Berry, Count Chocula, and ?? Wasn't there a third in the monster trio? OH, Franken Berry. Kind of redundant, huh.

  10. Crunchberries. Who didn't eat most of the crunch part and save the now outlawed red dye #4 berries for last because they were the best part?? (OK, made up the red dye part but it could be true!)

  11. Cocoa Puffs. Coo coo for Cocoa Puffs! Coo coo!

  12. Frosted Flakes. 'Cause they're Greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!

  13. Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs. OK, not really but I wish this was a real cereal. Sound familiar?? It's from my favorite comic strip Of All Time: Calvin & Hobbes. I even named one of my cats Hobbes. Sadly, he hasn't lived up to his name - he hasn't talked to me once or ran into trees on the back of my sled in ages.
Got any favorites I missed??
