From the Cereal Aisle: Nerds

Nerds Cereal
Company: Ralston
Year: 1985

Nerds Cereal Front 80s
A short lived Cereal (if you consider a big bowl of sugar cereal), Nerds came and went just long enough to give us a super sugar high before disappearing for good, leaving thousands, possibly millions of children itching for a fix with no relief in sight (besides pouring milk on a big bowl of actual Nerds Candy, which as it turns out, is not very good). The Box came with 2 compartments just like the candy with a different flavor on each side. You could choose Orange/Cherry or Strawberry/Grape, and there was even an offer on the box where you could send in and get a bowl that was divided in two so you could even eat both flavors at once without mixing them.
Genius? OK, lets not get carried away. If it was really as good as I remembered it, it would have lasted a whole lot longer, and not been awarded the first item to be placed on the GBNF Grocery shelves.

  1. I can't find anywhere else to comment. However, what about "Nut-n-Honey" cereal? You should ass that to the list. They had some clever commercials back in the day. I believe that was a brand of Kellogg cereal's?

  2. What about the Oreo cereal, Oreo O's I think it was called?
