22 Discontinued Cereals From Your Childhood

By Mustafa Gatollari

Although I'm an adult and don't eat cereal all that much anymore, I still absolutely love it and have only good memories associated with it. Growing up in the '80s and '90s, cereal culture was at an all-time high, and I think it has to do with the fact that no one knew anything about nutrition, for the most part. Sugary, glittery, sprinkly, marshmallowy, chocolatey bombs of deliciousness were packed into boxes and sold as viable breakfast options, and parents actually bought it.

If you're like me, there's probably a lot of cereals you consumed as a child that you would never eat today. And, it turns out, you can't — because most of them no longer exist. Here are 21 discontinued cereals from your childhood (and some even older)... thought a few have been recently returned to grocers' shelves.
