I don't remember a lot of those but I do especially remember Crispy Critters and Freakies.

One missing from that list is Quake, a companion cereal to Quisp. Quisp and Quake used to argue over who's cereal was better.

New Kids on the Block cereal Laughing very hard

I remember quite a few of these. "OJ's" (orange juice flavored cereal) was just freakin' nasty. I can see why that one didn't catch on. I also remember the "Sunday Funnies" cereal with the comic strips on the back of the box.

I tried that "Real Ghostbusters" cereal once ... if memory serves it turned the milk purple. Barf.

wow - I never knew some of those existed. I can see the warning on the NKOTB cereal: WARNING - This cereal may cause the voice to crack

I always wanted the Pac Man cereal but my parents wouldn't buy it for me as well as several others. I was allowed to get Honey Nut Cherios but I ate so much of that, that til this very day I won't even think abouy getting that.

I remember some of those, but I'm such a hopeless Cap'n Crunch addict I never cared to try them.

lol!

My mom got a lot of different kinds of cereals, minus the sugar ones which is why I am not all that familiar with this list.

S'Mores Crunch, Rocky Road, and Strawberry Honey Combs were all favorites of mine. I also would love anything that worked off the Lucky Charms formula of oats and marshmellows. Still am a big cereal person - though my favorite these days is simple Cheerios. They were so dreaded/hated as a child, now they're for breakfast every morning.

Berry Berry Kix is the only one that I recognize. I eat a lot of Reeses Puffs when I'm away at school.

Interesting. Not the content, but that anyone with an internet connection thinks their opinion deserves to be heard.

Speaking of............

We were grocery shopping and we're down the cereal aisle. What does my wife do? She picks up a box of Honey Nut Cheerios and says, "I'll get this. I know that you'll stay out of it."
