Long lost cereals

Thanks to Pinger Robert for sharing this list of 54 lost vintage cereals with Pinger Matt on Facebook. What a great list!

The Ice Cream Cones cereal took me aback not only for its stupidity, but because I totally remember it. I mean look at that crap! For breakfast… really?

I also really enjoyed the back cover of Rocky Road cereal with the awkward 80s children posing with a tiny piano.

Fingos, the cereal you eat with your fingers? Yikes.

Lastly, I doubt that anyone truly believed that Urkel-O’s were a good idea.

Ice Cream Cones was marvelous. And awful!

I’m convinced Ralston just had a whole bunch of shapes they could apply to corn puffs and a marketing department that was alternately in-step with trends (Urkel-O’s) and out-of-step with trends (Morning Funnies.)

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
