I have heard of kaboom but my mom never bought it. On rare occasions my husband would get it as a kid. His mom was big on buying no frills cereals. Very rare did she buy brand name cereals.

When I was 6 or 7 (this would have been about 1966) you could send in box tops and 99 cents and get a battery operated Quisp hat (with the helicopter) or a Quake coal miner's helmet. I had the Quake helmet. I wish I still had it - it would probably be worth money now!

Later, they wanted the kids to vote (I think it coincided with the 1968 Presidential election) as to who they liked best, Quisp or Quake, and Quisp was chosen. Quake was then discontinued.
My younger brother and I used to argue about Quisp and Quake -- he liked one and I liked the other. Now, looking back on it, I think they were likely the exact same cereal -- they just had different shapes.

I also loved Grape Nuts Flakes, but my absolute favorite cereal was always Fortified Oat Flakes. Haven't seen either one in years .....

Corn Flakes( the real one's)


There was nothing Greeeeeeeeeeeat about those.


"They"(my parents) did not buy any of the sweetened cereals.


I don't eat cold cereal at all. I have not eaten it since I was about 16y/o.

For a guy that loves ice cream, I've not had milk since I was 16y/o. I can't stand it. (another thread idea coming.......)

I just found out that my DH still has the tin license plates from Honey combs cereal. He's 39 now. Do you think they could be worth money?? He'd never sell them. Does anyone else still have them???

One of my earliest memories is this commercial for Smurfberry Crunch. I still find myself singing the song sometimes. I don't think I ever ate the cereal though.
