#tbt Breakfast Cereals That We Loved And Lost

The late 80’s and early 90’s truly were a golden age of the breakfast cereal.  Here is a quick list of some of the best breakfast cereals that, to the best of my knowledge, no longer exist today.  This is not a ranking, so they’re not listed in order, but by all means please leave comments of cereals you remember and loved.

So grab a spoon, some milk, turn on the Saturday morning cartoons, and check out this sugary bowl of nostalgia.

 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Essentially Chex with marshmallows in the shape of pizza and the weapons of the turtles.

Morning Funnies

Smiley face lumps of sugary deliciousness.  Based on the morning comic strips you vaguely remember looking at as a kid.

Ghostbusters Cereal

Many different names of this cereal popped up through the run of the movies, but it was pretty much the same cereal in every box.


Teddy Grahams Breakfast Bears Cereal

I don’t know if they were any different from the box of cookies version, but they were really good in milk.


Berry Berry Kix

One thousand times better than the cardboard tasting regular Kix.  This still exists in a total bastardized form that doesn’t have the berry clusters.  No Thanks…


Wheaties Dunk-A-Balls

Wheaties… Micheal Jordan… NBA basketball… nothing was bigger in the 90’s.  They were only available for a limited time, and it wasn’t long enough.



French Toast Crunch

The brother to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, this apparently is still available in Canada and it might be the number one reason I want to travel there.



Nintendo Cereal System

Two cereals in one box based of Super Mario and Legend of Zelda.



Cinnamon Mini Buns

Corn mixed with sugar and cinnamon and baked into a shape.  Its an undefeated formula as far as cereals go.


Ice Cream Cone

This, for some reason, was called Ice Cream Cone cereal, but it didn’t taste like ice cream cones at all.  Doesn’t mean it didn’t taste good, it was really delicious.




Many versions of Batman cereal have been released through out the years, but the simple bat signal version associated with Tim Burton 1989 movie were the best.



Move over Cap’N Crunch! Oh’s is the number one, undisputed champion of cereals that would totally destroy your mouth while eating them.


Rice Krispy Treats

I have zero understanding as to why this cereal is no longer around.  Also, I’m not sure if this would snap, crackle and pop like the original…
