The greatest was Post Toasties. Gone along with other delights including Noodles Romanoff (both frozen and boxed), Golden Grain Macaroni and Cheese, Derby Tomales, Campbell's Scotch Broth (I have a small hoard not terrribly outdated), and so many others it's sorely missed.

Wikipedia reported it was back in production as of early 2010 but there's no mention on the Post website. It's as if it never existed.

Kellogg's Pep, in the late forties. Roughly equal to Wheaties, in other words, very good an nutritious, one of the first "fortified" cereals with added nutrients. Plus it had really cool prizes in every box, and I had nearly the whole set of Pep Pins, buttons with comic strip characters on them. Also, Superman comics on the back panel of the box, and movie star cards, and best of all, punchout WWII aircraft models:

I couldn't have lived without my Kellogg's Pep.

Speaking as one who remembered when Lucky Charms, and Capt Crunch were first introduced, prior of which the menu consisted of Cheerios, Frost Flakes, Shredded Wheat, and plain old corn Flakes I must ask, when did plain Cheerios have taste?

Pass the Honeycombs, please.
I know I got carried away. I was thinking of the cereals my brother in laws had (older than me) sorry

I used to beg my grandma to buy me Golden Grahams; thought they were the best thing ever. Also, Cocoa Puffs, Trix, and those ones that look like little chocolate chip cookies......Cookie Crisp??? They were all eaten with my plastic 'Josie and the Pussycats' spoon!
