Cereals I Miss

Don't you hate it when a product you love is discontinued?  And you wish you'd known it was going to happen so you could prepare for the product apocalypse by visiting every store you can think of and buying them out of every last one of those items?  It is always my fervent wish that these items would make a comeback and suddenly reappear on store shelves. 

The two cereals I remember and miss the most were Smurfberry Crunch and Dunkin' Donuts cereal.  The Dunkin' Donuts cereal box was divided in half with chocolate on one side and glazed on the other.  They were shaped like mini donuts (or Cheerios, whatever). 


But even more than Dunkin' Donuts Cereal, I loved the Smurfberry Crunch cereal.  They were dark blue and red roundish star-shaped pieces (supposed to look like Smurf Berries of course!) that tasted a lot like the berries in Cap'N Crunch.  But way better!  I was devastated when they stopped making this cereal.  I would buy the Crunch Berries cereal (the one with nothing but berries) hoping it would fill the void, but alas, I was destined to bear the sorrow of breakfast cereal despair. 

Maybe since they are making a new Smurfs movie they'll get around to bringing back the cereal!

  1. Ha, I saw they were making that movie. I couldn't believe it. So. YOU love Smurfberry Crunch. That's okay, I still respect you. ;-> Me, I can wolf down a whole box of Golden Grahams in one sitting. Urf.

  2. Marvin - I never really cared for Golden Grahams that much. They get soggy so quickly and then the texture is horribly and kind of foamy. I like the first few bites, but anything after that isn't so great. Maybe I should put less milk in and see if that helps.

  3. I don't remember Dunkin' Donuts cereal, but I do remember Smurf-berry crunch. We weren't allowed to eat fun cereal at my house. We had to get health food store cereal, which was horrendous back then or Grape Nuts.

  4. Theresa - Oh man, my Dad has always been a fun of Grape Nuts. They're just okay for me. I always hated that I could never judge the proper amount to put in my bowl. They swell up so much that I always had more than I could finish!
