From the Cereal Aisle: OJ's

OJ's Cereal
Company: Kellogg's

You don't see a lot of orange flavored cereals, and there is a very good reason. People enjoy drinking a glass of OJ with their morning cereal, not pouring it directly over the cereal. Orange flavored milk? Ugh.

OJ's was a fun new cereal when it came out in 1985. It claimed that "every bowl had the Vitamin C of a 4 oz glass of Orange Juice. Plus a delicious Orange taste your kids will love!"

Well, they didn't. It lasted for just under 2 years and was gone.

The cereal did have one thing going for it, a cool mascot called OJ Joe, a cattleman who rode around on an orange and corralled and roped other oranges that he then took to the Orange Processing Factory where they were brutally squeezed to death to make the very cereal that he was on the front of. The humanity.

If you remember OJ's and were a fan, you can sign an online petition that's out there trying to get Kelloggs to bring it back:

And if you have any memories, be sure to comment below.


  1. I bought some Yummy Mummy the other day and tried it out, and the first thing I said when I took a bite was "holy crap this tastes like OJ's". Yummy Mummy is one of the Boo Berry, Count Chocula cereals that only comes out at Halloween. I don't know what's more amazing, the fact that there's still orange flavored cereal or the fact that I immediately remembered what OJ's tasted like.

  2. Looks like Joe Swanson/family guy
