Did you ask Mom to bring home the cereal that stays crunchy even in milk, or the one with the picture of a Scotsman flexing an enormous bicep?
Although I did like both Cheerios Cereal and the Cheerios Kid, and Sugar Bear, who wore a blue turtleneck sweater and talked like Elvis Presley, was kind of cute.
There was really no contest. Quisp Cereal was sweet, sort of like Captain Crunch; Quake Cereal was awful. Besides, who would pick a miner over a cool alien, muscles or not? In 1969, Quake was transformed into a slim Australian cowboy, but it didn't help. When Quaker Oats held an "election" to see who would be discontinued, Quake got his walking papers. Quisp was available through the 1970s .
