Where do I find ______ cereal?
Based on a lot of comments we read here and on social media, it seems like a lot of people are under the mistaken impression that their favorite cereals from childhood are no longer being made, or that they can’t find some of the new and more novel cereals being mentioned on the web. Well wonder no more! We’ve compiled a brief list of some of the more frequently-missed cereals and where they’ve been spotted.
- Honey Graham Oh!s: These are surprisingly tricky to find, but they are out there. It feels like 1 in 5 grocery stores keep it in stock. Maybe now that Post has bought it from Quaker they’ll expand the distribution a bit? Just keep your eyes open!
- French Toast Crunch: French Toast Crunch was discontinued a long time ago, but General Mills has recently brought it back as a ’90s throwback kind of deal. It should be available in most grocery stores!
- Rice Krispies Treats Cereal: Despite what many people seem to think, Rice Krispies Treats cereal was not discontinued, it’s just very hard to come by! Believe it or not, the one place I consistently find it is in the cereal aisle of a local gas station. Just look everywhere, and if you still can’t find it you can always buy it on Amazon.
- Tiny Toast: Tiny Toast just came out within the past few months (as of this posting), and it seems like some people are having trouble finding it. I’ve personally seen (and purchased) both the Strawberry and Blueberry flavors at Target.
- Monster Cereals: Once upon a time, the General Mills monster cereals (Count Chocula, Frankenberry, and especially Boo Berry) were a rare sighting in grocery stores, though occasionally Count Chocula and Frankenberry would pop up in the fall. Now all three cereals are not only available, but downright plentiful every year around Halloween time at Target, where they’ve made a tradition out of releasing not only the regular boxes, but retro-styled versions as well—and even brought back Yummy Mummy and Fruit Brute one last spectacular time!
- Oreo O’s: This, I’m sad to say, may be gone for good. It’s been gone from the U.S. for at least ten years, I’d say, but up until a year or so back you used to at least be able to buy imported Korean Oreo O’s on Amazon for exorbitant prices. Our only hope is that Post will pull a “French Toast Crunch” and bring it back some day as a retro/nostalgic thing!
- Cap’n Crunch’s Orange Creampop Crunch: Good question. I’ve only just heard about this myself within the past few days, but I have yet to spot it in the wild. If anyone has any tips, let me know.
