That Corn Kix kid is disturbingly homoerotic.

I know, isn't that hysterical?

Kix is 83% energy food. Kix is savory corn puffs. Kix is crispier, tastier. Kix is aglow with rich flavor. TRY KIX

That's nothing:

Twinkles Sprinkler
General Mills Sugar Sprinkled Twinkles
General Mills Tutti Fruiti Twinkles
Twinkles Sprinkler (1965) is a fireman who sprinkles Twinkles with sugar through his fire hose.

I think it's illegal down here in the South for Twinkles to Sprinkle their sugar all over each other. Tutti Fruiti indeed.

Boo Berry was my favorite cereal as a young kid. It wasn't until I tried it as an adult that I realized my parents were right in steering me towards better breakfast fare. Now I only eat Super Hero food.

Any Freakies lovers in the hizzouse? If you were a child of the 70's surely the Freakie song resides somewhere in your greymatter. Eating Freakies while watching Krofft Supershow, doesn't get more acid-drenched then that. This picture sums it all up.

After less than a year of posts, it'd be hard for me to pick just one favorite among the Chin pantheon; but it's safe to say this is among the elite. Well done, Stan, good stuff.

Thanks for the link; that's a terrific site. It even includes the classics Colon Blow and Quarry, from the old old days of SNL. But shouldn't there be a cereal called Crunchland?

For a second helping of cereal goodness, try The Empty Bowl.

My mom wouldn't buy "sugar cereals" unless we were on vacation. I remember trying to make my own by putting miniature marshmallows in Grape-Nuts. It was a disaster.

Maybe Sugar Crisp Beaver should get together with the Kix Corn Kid.

[This is Good]

King Vitamin is still one of my favorite cereals.

Thanks for the site. Though my cereal days are long gone, I remember the great Quisp vs. Quake vote of 1972 (mentioned in this email exchange with Quisp, himself.)

By the way, Chowhound is a great site if you're trying to track down your favorite food.

Hey, Frank Grimes, thanks for mentioning my site!

Topher's site is a great reference for when my usually sharp memory is failing me. I could do without the awful MIDI on every page, though.
